hey Mark, i was wondering if you could give me some details on your setup of the software.(,meshing poly count,meshing quality, etc. I am using a one camera setup and a similar number of photos, a very similar light set up, but i am getting nowhere near the same quality of results. I'm wondering what the delta between us. I attached an image of my setup and results. I used the highest quality setting for the mesh generation, but the results are no where near as good as yours

Hello Roberto,

I think that's a good headscan (needs some touch -ups on the top of the head but that's always a weak spot...) Could you tell me which camera/lens combo you used? Even aperture settings have an influence. Furthermore, I see some glitches on the shirt. I would suggest wearing color / patterns for scanning. Certainly avoid shiny / black clothes.

Hope this helps,

Mark

thanks for the site link. maybe a multicamera setup IS possible for less than an arm and leg.  :o

If you want to try and do a multicamera set up with cheap cameras you need to look here:
http://stereo.jpn.org/eng/sdm/index.htm

SDM is an offshoot of the CHDK that is specifically geared towards syncing multiple cameras for stereo+ shooting.

The biggest downside is that pretty much all the cameras it works with are now available only used, so setting up a multicamera rig can take some leg work.

I've used this system to build a 28 camera rig using the canon sd1300.
