Meet Bellus3D Face Camera Pro

Bellus3D Face Camera Pro is an easy-to-use, high-quality, and affordable 3D face scanning camera for mobile devices. The Face Camera Pro is designed for self-scanning. Simply attach the Face Camera Pro to a smartphone or a tablet, turn your head from left to right, and start creating amazingly realistic 3D face models in seconds. You are ready to share your virtual self with others, be a star in your favorite games, or get an accurate 3D print of your head.

Fast and High Quality

Bellus3D Face Camera Pro combines two proprietary state-of-the-art technologies that measure 500,000 3D points on your face to create a high-resolution and accurate face model in seconds. The scanned model can further be used to fit a statistical face model for face recognition, analysis, and animation.

DepthShape™ reconstructs 3D shape using an infrared structured-light depth camera designed for close range scanning at up to 0.4mm resolution with submillimeter accuracy.

PhotoShape™ leverages mobile device’s high-resolution front-facing camera to capture face details such as skin pores and wrinkles. An optional LED ring light ensures your face is captured with perfect lighting and color every time.

Designed for Mobile Devices

Bellus3D Face Camera Pro is a small add-on camera designed to work with existing Android mobile devices. The Face Camera Pro is connected to and powered by the USB port of your mobile device. The camera data are streamed to the mobile device for processing to create 3D face models.

Bellus3D’s patent-pending technology automatically calibrates and registers the Face Camera Pro’s built-in depth sensor with the mobile device’s camera every time you scan a face. As your mobile camera’s quality and resolution improve, the scanning quality of the Face Camera Pro improves too.
