Gimbals are stabilization systems which can be used for a huge variety of situations.
We use Freefly MōVI gimbals in combination with our RED WEAPON and RED SCARLET DRAGON digital cinema cameras and a variety of lenses up to 100mm of focal length. The MōVI electronically stabilizes the rigged camera in real time and can be operated either by one or by two persons (+ focus puller). Our systems offer up to 3 channel lens control for remote focus, iris and zoom.
The systems can be either handheld or rigged to boats, cars, skidoos, quads, paragliders, cranes and almost every other moving vehicle while producing a rocksteady picture.
We use our customized RED setups for our work. Further we can implement Arri Mini, Phantom MIRO and other cameras suiting on your need.
For this test shoot the MōVI was used in single operator mode to get some nice and stable shots of a snowboarder. The MōVI M10 was running in majestic mode which makes it follow the operators movement while stabilizing.
All the shots were done handheld from skies.
Basically every shot in this clip is made with the MōVI. Framerates from 25 to 100 fps. Shot in 5K scope, quick graded in Davinci Resolve.
With the new firmware and controller the MoVI got major improvements. The controller has built in 3 way lens control (focus, iris zoom), camera start stop functionality and a joystick superior to RC remotes. In combination with the Paralinx HD video link (200m + range) our MoVI systems got a huge boost.
On top of that the MoVI expands the control inputs with two new features. PANBAR and MIMIC mode. PANBAR gives you the feel of a classic tripod , MIMIC gives you full 3 axis control and makes the controller mimic your movement. This way a huge range of shots can be executed to give the images just the right feel.
