Camera stabilization is always a tricky game, with no easy solution. Cheap stabilizers are often difficult to balance, and expensive ones are often bulky, and make mobilization a problem. Introducing MōVI by Freefly, a stabilization system that is expected to change the DSLR movie scene forever, and its already got award winning videographer Vincent Laforet’s stamp of approval.
Using a 3 axis gyroscope to stabilize the camera, the MōVI system looks light, incredibly portable, and quite frankly, amazing. This gif perhaps illustrates it the best.
The downfall of this new tool for videographers everywhere, comes in the price. Currently priced at $15,000 (with a $7500 option rumored to be coming soon), it makes it a difficult purchase for your amateur videographer and targeted more towards production companies. But with new ideas like this, certainly more consumer friendly options will be coming along as time goes on, making shaky cameras a thing of the past. Watch the videos below for more examples of this amazing technology at work.
