MoVI

MōVI a revolutionary handheld stabilized system has been introduced at NAB. This new rig may pave the way for a more cost effective handheld environment in the future. Freefly the company behind the tech, began its business building aerospace and UAV products. Vincent LaForet has posted a short film shot entirely on the MōVI. He has this to say:

This New Camera Stabilizer Could Change Cinematography Forever

It is not until you hold the handheld "MoVI" device in your hands and run, or drive, or fly only to see your clumsiness and bumps turned into a near perfect trajectory – thanks to insanely fascinating technology of gyro stabilization and accelerometers. The "MōVI" produced by Freefly Systems based in Seattle WA., is a digital 3-axis gyro-stabilized handheld camera gimbal. The completely silent device weighs under 3.5 pounds bare and can be operated solo, or with the help of a second "gimbal" operator with a joystick to pull off some incredible moves.
