  2. Hello everybody, I want to know if someone has some experiences with low cost gopro Hero 4 black edition cameras for photogrammetry? I want to install the system in a remote place (Cordillera of the Andes, Bolivia). The project will consist to take a stereo pair each day for a year to measure the growing plants in an area of 1 square meter (precision of 1-2 cms)... If someone have some experiences and can share it with me, I will be very grateful... Thanks, Alvaro
