Thanks for the post, this is a very exciting looking Instrument (yet to get my hands on one) and the data looks very good indeed.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfYUReTLrsM
Trimble have been doing a lot with Imagery (photogrammetric digitising from calibrated images) over the last few years and alongside developing very fast and accurate scanners, this is a true hybrid and you can use both technologies very effectively. It is also a very different concept, it is a total station first and foremost but there is no eyepiece - the operation is totally digital through one of the many onboard cameras. You can even record the position of the nail you've setup over for QA purposes with the downward facing camera (that's a nice touch).
It'll be on the Trimble stand next week at Intergeo if anyone is planning a visit!
