Face and Body Scanning / Help needed to built a 3D Bodyscanner
« on: July 10, 2013, 07:26:13 PM »

we plan to do some face/ head/ full body scans in a stationary setup for an academical project and need some help deciding which hardware would suit best.
The main intention is to do some full body scans, focusing on the best quality for head/ face scans while doing the rest of the body with the minimum amount of cameras needed.
We plan to built a closed dome (with a small entrance) to keep the conditions the same and would use 2/3 or even 3/4 of the cameras for the head shots.

The main question is, what would be better: (a) more cameras or (b) better equipement 

With the same budget, we can buy:

(a) 90x Samsung NX 1000 Kitts (20,3 Mix, addon flash SEF8A (guide number 8 @100), lens 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AF) around 280 Euro/ Unit

(b) 53x Nikon D3200 + lens 50mm f1.8 (24 MPix, built-in flash (guide number 12 @100), around 480 Euro/ Unit

(c) should we maybe go with a completely different approach and use a mix, like 36x Nikon D3200 for the face/ head part and 28 Samsung NX1000 for the rest of the body?

As mentioned before, this will be a stationary setup, so we can prepare and test a lot in advance, tweak the settings to get the best (picture) quality for each camera, before we are going to start with the capture process.
My point here is, will the better equipement really make a big difference here? Or is it more like, the more cameras, the better? Will there be a significant  difference between using 60 or 75 cameras for the face/ head part?

Do we need additional flash lights, or are the built in/ addon flashes enough?

Thanks in advance
