Megapixels vs. Quantity
« on: June 16, 2016, 02:56:11 PM »
Hi everyone!

I am new into 3d scanning. I'm trying to find out the right solution for the full-body human scanning rig.
What option is better in your opinion?

100 cameras with 18 Megapixel on-board or 50 cameras with 50 Megapixels.


What setup will produce better quality?
Thanks in advance for your suggestions! ;)

From my experience I would say that more cams is better than more resolution.
With only 50 cams you will be very limited in the model pose or you will have to change camera positions to have the minimum occluded areas.
The more cams you have, the less you have to reconstruct the areas not seen by at least 2 cams.
