Photogrammetry is the process of creating three-dimensional visualisations of objects, structures and people based on two-dimensional photographic images. Photogrammetry can be aerial (with images taken from the air) or terrestrial (with cameras handheld, on tripods, or on a rig). The high precision measurements of photogrammetry can be integrated into specific and complex software, which has seen it become increasingly popular in a range of settings including inspection and quality assurance, CG asset/models, e-commerce, cultural heritage and photobooths.

Sony offers a range of cameras and lenses that are ideal for the complex needs of photogrammetry, featuring:

  • • Image resolution of up to 61MP – and up to 240MP with pixel shift mode
  • • An array of versatile bodies and more than 60 native lenses, including high quality wide-angle lenses
  • • Unmatched capabilities in both stills and video
  • • Image quality far superior to machine vision cameras
  • • Cameras to suit every budget and requirement
  • • Perfect synchronisation of image capture and lighting
  • • Adaptive ISO to handle colour and lighting variations with ease
  • • Ethernet remote system to change settings on multiple cameras quickly and easily
  • • Ultra-fast transfer of data thanks to USB connectivity up to 10Gbps

  • • Expert technical support to help you configure your cameras to your exact needs

INSPECTION AND QUALITY ASSURANCE

Capture the external condition of an object or product in minute detail thanks to the exceptional resolution of Sony cameras, with up to 61MP available from the Alpha 7RIV. Identify tiny damages and variations in surface quality with ease – perfect for logistics inspection, factory, and lab environments. Sony cameras can be easily integrated into industrialised settings.

Sony cameras deliver extraordinary flexibility in how you control your cameras. Our Camera Remote SDK with Linux (ARM) compatibility is highly customisable and allows perfect synchronisation of image capture. This multi-camera control, along with Sony’s high data transfer speed, is essential for capturing all the pictures you need to create a complete and detailed 3D model.

Sony’s mirrorless technology minimises blurring, giving you high-quality shots time after time. Choose from a range of high-quality lenses, including wide-angle, to ensure you capture everything you need in the greatest detail. Change settings and performance on multiple cameras at once to save you time and money.

CG ASSET/ MODELS

Sony’s full-frame mirrorless cameras are perfect for creating video game assets - from small objects to cityscapes and stunning panoramas. Build pre-visualisations to create film-like realism. Sony cameras and lenses are also ideal for virtual production and the creation of virtual worlds. Use these environments in-camera, in virtual locations, or in post-production for entertainment, film and TV.

Use Sony’s Pixel Shift mode mode for indoor, static objects to increase the resolution of your image up to 240MP. Our high data transfer speed also enables you to download files quickly and without losing quality.

Thanks to our Camera Remote SDK, you can also automate e-commerce asset creation, saving you time and money.

Choose from cameras to suit any budget. Browse our APS-C range, that has densely distributed focus points to aid subject capture, through to our Alpha 7RIV, offering unparalleled resolution and image quality as well as fast capture rate and optimal synchronization between multiple cameras and flash exposures.
