Abstract. In this article, we study the interest of PiCam and its possibilities offered for the realization of a light payload (small and inexpensive) in order to perform the 3D reconstruction of dynamic scenes (underwater or aerial) in close-range remote sensing. We see that on these observation scales, movements of the scenes due to flora and fauna cannot be ignored if we want these objects to be part of the final model. We review the sensors used in the literature for 3D reconstruction and then present the arguments in favor of PiCam with regard to the constraints posed by the use of light and agile vectors. The main issue is the synchronization of these low cost sensors, which is not native: we explain the different steps to obtain a satisfactory synchronization rate with regard to the dynamism of the studied scenes and present the results obtained.
