Dr Peter Falkingham, a Lecturer in Vertebrate Biology at Liverpool John Moores University, has published a very interesting review about the photogrammetry software 3DF Zephyr Pro.
I really liked using 3DFZephyr – it’s easy to use, the interface is nice, it’s pretty quick, contains a bunch of useful tools, and development is going in a great direction.
The Lite Version at ~£150 is reasonable, but that 500 photos limit nags at me somewhat. It seems quite arbitrary, and isn’t something that affects, say, Photoscan/Metashape. That being said, it’s very rare that I reconstruct a model using over 500 photos, and if I did I could always fall back to Meshroom or COLMAP.
