This is a test to see whether image size, aperture and dpi affect point cloud density.
A tripod mounted camera (6.1mp Konica Minolta Dynax 5D DSLR) was set up and moved around an object taking images in each of the 4 settings below. To ensure camera positions remained the same, each setting was shot before the camera was moved into the next position:
Setting 1: Res: 3008 x 2000 Ap: F22 ISO400 shutter 0.8-1.6sec
Setting 2: Res: 3008 x 2000 Ap: F3.5 ISO400 shutter 1/30-60sec
Setting 3: Res: 1504 x 1000 Ap: F22 ISO400 shutter 0.8-1.6sec
Setting 4: Res: 1504 x 1000 Ap: F3.5 ISO400 shutter 1/30-60sec
35 Images were collected for each setting, these were grouped together and synthed.
This particular model relates to setting 3.
Both the F22 synths appear to have a few more points, but nothing significant. Resolution hasn’t had any impact at all
