Metric Cameras For Photogrammetry

PMS AG offers the right metric camera for almost all applications.

For high-precision measurements generally high-quality digital SLR cameras like Nikon D300, Nikon D700, Fuji S5 Pro are used. For slightly lower demands on the measurement accuracy one can also use semi-professional cameras such as Nikon D70, Nikon D90. The use of low quality cameras is also possible the only drawback is that the measurement accuracy is not at the same level as with high quality digital SLR.
