There are many depth camera products on the market, but how to choose a depth camera that suits you?
Except for the price and brand, choosing a depth camera mainly depends on the applications. Different applications require different types of depth camera. Generally, the following factors should be considered before you decide to purchase a depth camera:
- Technical parameters. The first and the most important factor is the specifications of the camera, including the size, working distance, accuracy and operating environment. The specifications represent the quality and applicability of the camera.
- Software and developer kit. Software and SDK essential for 3D processing and customization of applications should be provided for free.
- Effectiveness. You should consider if the camera is easy to use, and can deliver results at fast speed. If a camera takes you too much time and is difficult to operate, just give it up.
- Product support. If the user encounters any problem, the equipment provider should provide technical support in a timely manner. Besides, complete tutorials and documentation should be accessible by the users.
