MōVI Gimbal rig

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.

The Movi Gimbal rig is produced by http://freeflysystems.com

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.

I work as Director of Photography based in sweden. One of my main strengths is finding the best possibilities for a chosen location, lighting it in a given time frame and producing images meeting, and hopefully exceeding the producers vision. After more than 15 years of working with the moving image I still enjoy the challange of getting “the shot” and seeing the light I own/run a production company in Malmo Sweden, www.pixeltouch.se
