Which cameras are supported in Pix4Dmatic

Pix4Dmatic can process images (.jpg or .jpeg format) taken from the aerial manned or unmanned platforms.

The acquisition angle of images should be nadir or slightly oblique (required: 0° - 45°; recommended: 10° - 35°).

 
Note:
Cameras not listed on this page can still be imported and processed in Pix4Dmatic if they contain the required Exif/XMP tags and if the image geolocation and orientation is available.
For example:
  • DJI Zenmuse P1, or DJI Phantom 4 Pro images with the image resolution 5472 × 3078 (16:9 Aspect Ratio) can be imported and processed even if not specifically mentioned in the list. All the necessary Exif/XMP tags are written in the images directly by the drone manufacturer.
  • Sony A7R and Sony A6000 series images cannot be imported into Pix4Dmatic by default as they lack basic Exif/XMP tags. It is necessary to provide the tags before importing the images into Pix4Dmatic.

To see the list of required EXIF tags see the Exif/XMP tags for project creation in Pix4D products article.

To import the image geolocation and orientation using .csv or .txt files, see the Image geolocation and orientation import format article.

    Hi All,

    Cameras not listed on this page can still be imported and processed in Pix4Dmatic if they contain the required Exif/XMP tags. Pix4Dmatic is able to generate a generic camera model but only when all the necessary information is available. To get more information please check the minimum requirements in the EXIF and XMP tag information read by Pix4D article:

    • Required tags. They present the minimum requirements, for example, the name of the camera. 
    • Required for Exif-driven generic camera model. Since there is currently no UI for the camera model creation and manipulation in Pix4Dmatic, it is possible to set the camera parameters by adding the value directly in the Exif/XMP tags. 

    To import the image geolocation and orientation using .csv or .txt files, see the Image geolocation and orientation import format article.

    Let us know if you have datasets with all the required tags, and we will consider adding the cameras to the official list of supported cameras.

    Best,

    Hi All,

    It is now possible to import the image geolocation and orientation using .csv or .txt files. This is especially useful when using PPK workflows that generate text files instead of writing the values directly in the EXIF. 

    That the file needs to include the image name, image coordinates, and the Yaw, Pitch, Roll angles. See the Image geolocation and orientation import format article for more information. 

    Best,
