FREEFLY Movi overview

  • 1Description

While the original MōVI series of stabilizers have established themselves in the professional video market, the Freefly Movi Cinema Robot Smartphone Stabilizer brings all of Freefly's experience and condenses it into a pint-sized, three-axis gimbal for just about anybody. The sleek form factor can be used with either one or two hands, and the smartphone clamp will hold phones up to 3.5mm wide. Once you've installed the app on your smartphone and secure the clamp, you're free to capture smooth and stable footage using one of the customizable operating modes. Select between Majestic, Echo, Time-Lapse, Movilapse, Smartpod, and Orbit modes, depending on the shot you want to capture. Check out the features section below for a more in-depth rundown of the operating modes.

Note: Only the iOS app is currently available; the Android app will be made available in the future.

Hardware Features

Form factor designed for either one or two-handed operation
Flat, rubberized base for setting down on flat surfaces while maintaining balance

USB-C port with fast-charging compatibility
Powered by two 18650 lithium-ion batteries
Bluetooth LE wireless connectivity
Free iOS app for capturing video, gimbal control, and customizing settings
Stow-lock sleep functionality
1/4"-20 thread for securing the Movi to your tripod or selfie stick

Operating Modes

Majestic mode gives you direct control over the Movi stabilizer. The Movi will smooth out and stabilize your movements in two ways: 1) providing a movement threshold where Movi will ignore your movement completely, and 2) smoothing the movement outside this threshold to prevent jerky motion. These settings can be changed to be more responsive for tracking fast action, or smoother for slow cinematic moves.
Echo mode allows a single operator to execute complex moves. Teach the Movi your favorite moves and then execute them mid-shot. Stretch out or compress the time it takes for Movi to get from point A to point B to get the perfect shot, whether the Movi is sitting still or moving with you.
Time-lapse mode allows you to capture professional-looking, super-smooth time-lapse footage nearly anywhere. Set Movi down in an interesting place, frame your initial shot, set your start and end frame, and wait for some magic. The Movi will execute movements precisely, so that when played back at 10x speed, the world will look as if it's flying by.
Movilapse mode is what happens when you wish to execute live motion with your time-lapses. In this mode, Movi responds to your control input 10x slower than normal. When played back at 10x speed, you get a super smooth shot of the world moving around you.
In Smartpod mode, manually point your phone at a stationary subject and the Movi will do its best to keep your phone trained on the subject, regardless of your movement.
Orbit mode makes epic circling shots a breeze. Set the direction of your orbit, and the speed, and the Movi will stay locked on the center of the orbit.

    FREEFLY Movi reviews

    Movi Cinema Robot Smartphone Stabilizer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from $300 Well Spent. For $300, this device quickly upgrades your videos from amateur to professional.� To begin with, the iPhone X is a remarkable platform that delivers sparkling results for the dimmest of users (i.e., myself) - but within two days - I've gained a full understanding of each of the Ninja modes.� I assure you this: If I can do it - you can do it. When combined with post platforms such as Movie Studio Platinum - this renders Sundance / Cannes quality clips. That's right, amigo/amiga... You too can be all that.� Just don't tell anyone - otherwise, everyone's going to have one of these - and then it's no longer a big deal.� So... Just between you and me, ok?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not an Osmo Radically different design from the crowded pistol grip gimbal market. Nice to be able to set it down. App syncs easily, and is very user friendly. I would like Filmic Pro level control though. Freefly promises firmware updates, and I trust that given their record. So cool stuff to come. Counterweight adjustment for add-on lenses is FAR superior to other Freefly gimbal balancing torture. A few criticisms: record trigger is awkwardly placed, there is no joy stick control, and vs pistol grip gimbals, it loses out on the “walk around filming” test. And no Z-axis stabilizer (I am going to try it in a Beholder spring arm).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it! I really loved this product! I would give it 5 stars but it should be more user friendly. For like noobs but i still loved this product for the amount of things you can do with it. Every recording looks so smooth and steady. Its a professional tool made easy basically. But there is always room for improvement. Also would love to see a “follow” mode on this! Where you could lock the focus on someone and that it follows only that. Would be awesome!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick setup, smooth sailing Works right outta the box, no setup required. Just put my iPhone in and powered up. Very easy and intuitive to use. Build quality and smoothness to on par with freefly quality. They make good stuff. Fairly light eight but does start to get a bit hand strain after prolonged use. I’ll put it down on a table anywhere to rest my hand, or simply use both hands to offer relief. Do like the ability to quickly turn off the motor, lock in the gimbal, and keep my phone still strapped in and check on my messages and do regular phone stuff without having to remove phone. Then I can be back in Movi action within seconds of something catches my attention. Only drawback is the movi app only works on iPhones for now. Since I have an iPhone this was a non issue for me.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buggy and heavy This is the heaviest phone gimbal that I have tried by far, which makes it tiresome to hold for long periods compared to other gimbals. More significantly there was repeated trouble getting it to connect by bluetooth with my iPhone X. Most of the time it would not recognize it was there, and even when it did it is hit and miss that it will connect once it sees it. (trying on both the official app and the beta version). I have tried restarting my phone, restarting the Movi, taking the batteries out and back in. It really, really frustrated me when I took it to films a sunrise in the desert by timelapse and tried for 15 minutes to pair/connect the phone and Movi and it wouldn't. Needless to say, I missed the sunrise. Unfortunately, this has been a big disappointment. If it cannot reliably connect, then it is sadly a dealbreaker.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Having used multiple gimbals over the years for iPhones, this is by far the most feature-rich, versatile and stable.
