I have no updates on solution to the camera capture fail from DD as of the morning of March 9th. The system did work well for me, 3 times that I tried it and I have two 3D models up on Sketchfab , one of my house and one of a local motel which is for sale; this I did for a realtor friend who is the listing agent for the commercial property. Had it not been a windy day, I would have manually photographed more of the oblique angles with my Phantom of the motel buildings' fronts and gotten a better model; these are early days for me using DD.
I think it ought to be a simple bug to fix although I 'm not a programmer. The system worked well for me when it was working and failed only , as far as I can tell when there was an update in the firmware. If the firmware does not automatically update and a user does NOT download the app. a second time after first installing the earlier version, then that user ought to be able to still use the DD system; I think. Mine failed when I downloaded the DD app. a second time and it was updated; that's when the camera stopped working. My camera does work under the DJI Go app. DroneDeploy does seem to fly the mission as programmed but the camera activation fails. I cannot see that anyone using an iOS based mobile device is affected by this bug but (if you are, please post it here).
As to commercial use of DD; I think it has merit for real estate marketing. Several realtors have seen my 3D models and like the concept. Sharing the image is easy and I have embedded the model in my own property for sale web page just like a photo. This avoids YouTube because the DD/Sketchfab 3D model of a home or motel is not a video. It is interactive which is a key point of marketing anything; viewer engagement. It is novel at this point and easy to understand and works on mobile as well as desktop devices. A 3D model of a property gives the listing agent a competitive advantage in marketing over other realtors and should help the realtor using it get more listing customers; if he/she shows off the 3D product to them.
No additional apps are needed to view the images ; the buyer prospect can see it just like any other photo. Larger real estate (farm, ranch or commercial acreage) would benefit from the DD system also and I have a 16 acre commercial property bordered by two parallel highways which I was in the process of modelling when the DD app. failed and my camera stopped working. That property will show very well with a 3D model in 'terrain' view; I hope.
You can see I'm optimistic about the DD app. and am just waiting for the fix.
