Every now and then a new invention comes along that may change the way we work. Steadicam was one such thing that changed the way we move the camera in a shot. It allowed us to go where we couldn’t previously go and give a sense of movement and energy to a scene previously impossible. Now here maybe another such invention. The Movi.
It is a “digital 3-axis gyro-stabilized handheld camera gimbal” which allows a single operator to move freely around for the floating shots we all love, but without the years training required to master the Steadicam and with a price tag within reach for even the smaller setups.

I had to watch the video 4 or 5 times and I think this has got to be one of the coolest inventions to hit the industry in a while. I cannot wait to see it in real life.
