Abstract. The Worldwide spread of relatively low cost mobile devices embedded with dual rear cameras enables the possibility of exploiting smartphone stereo vision for producing 3D models. Despite such idea is quite attractive, the small baseline between the two cameras restricts the depth discrimination ability of this kind of stereo vision systems. This paper presents the results obtained with a smartphone stereo vision system by using two rear cameras with different focal length: this operating condition clearly reduces the matchable area. Nevertheless, 3D reconstruction is still possible and the obtained results are evaluated for several camera-object distances.
