FREEFLY MOVI M5 overview

  • 1Description

The FREEFLY MōVI M5 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer Kit with Ready Rig GS from B&H gives you full camera stabilization for long-form shooting and event videography. Place the MōVI M5 into the Ready Rig's stirrups and you can comfortably hold the rig for extended periods of time. See more information on the individual pieces of this kit below.

  • FREEFLY MōVI M5 3-Axis Motorized Gimbal Stabilizer

    The MōVI M5 3-Axis Motorized Gimbal Stabilizer from Freefly is designed for mid-sized DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and camcorders weighing up to 5 pounds, including the lens. For camera stabilization the M5 uses three motors and an IMU (inertial measurement unit) to detect and counteract unwanted movement along three axes: pan, tilt, and roll. In particular, compensating for handshake or vehicle-induced vibration and reducing translation. There is a quick-release adapter available separately so that it can be mounted on cranes, jibs, vehicle mounts, and other camera support equipment. There is also an MR (multi-rotor) conversion kit, available separately, so that it can mounted on a UAV.

    The system supports single- or dual-operator control. In single user (Majestic) mode the system's software intelligently differentiates unwanted shake or vibration from intentional movement, such as panning, while keeping the horizon level. Alternatively, you can have a dedicated operator with a remote control or RC transmitter who is in charge of camera pan, tilt--and if you want--roll. In this configuration the camera will always point where the operator of the remote tells it to, independent of how the rig operator moves.

    As with sled-style stabilizers, the camera should be balanced on the MōVI to ensure best performance. Once balanced, the MōVI will need to be linked via Bluetooth to an Android mobile device or a computer or tablet running Windows to finalize the configuration process.

    Two lithium-polymer (LiPo) batteries and a charger are included, as well as a top handle for low-angle shooting or transporting the assembled rig on set.

    Supported Cameras
    For DSLRs such as the Canon EOS-5D Mark III, Nikon D800, and Panasonic GH4 as well as select compact cinema cameras weighting up to 5 pounds total, including the lens. Large DSLRs such as the Canon EOS-1DC will not fit and typically exceed the specified weight limit
    Remote Operation
    The MōVI can be operated remotely either with a dedicated controller or using an RC aircraft transmitter (handheld radio controller). It supports Spektrum DSMX and Futaba SBUS transmitters with at least six channels, including the Spektrum DX7s. Wireless range will vary depending on the transmitter used
    Majestic Mode
    For single-operator use. In this mode the gimbal provides stabilization without counteracting operator-directed camera movements--the camera goes where you point the handles. This mode is ideal for accurate framing in tight situations
    Drift Free Horizon
    The gimbal uses a GPS-assisted IMU that when used outdoors with available satellite signals is able to minimize drift even when under acceleration--such as where the camera is mounted on a UAV or vehicle
    Live Wireless Tuning and Graphing
    A real-time Bluetooth wireless link is provided by the gimbal which transmits performance data for live adjustment of any of the gimbal parameters using software for Windows or Android
    Silent Drive
    The motors driving the gimbal have been designed to operate as quietly as possible to ensure you will be able to record sound without picking up any unwanted noise
    Translation Compensation
    Making hundreds of adjustments per second, the software works to counteract translation--the bobbing up and down effect while running--when tracking a moving subject moving at high speed. In this situation translation may be unavoidable, but at least the subject will remain in-frame
    Shot Recorder
    Keeps a record of the camera position (where GPS is available), height, camera pan, tilt, and roll so that the shot can be recreated later or to help Visual Effects align the live action shot with other elements in a CG composite
    Third-Party Mounting
    Using separately available mounting hardware it is possible to mount the MōVI on cranes, jibs, Steadicams and similar vest-supported stabilizers (where it corrects for angular error), and other camera support hardware. It has also been verified to work on an Easyrig
    Remote Firmware Updatable
    You can upgrade the gimbal to new software features as they are released by Freefly yourself, without having to send the device in for a factory update
    Custom Direct Drive Motors
    The MōVI system uses motors that were custom made for the gimbal rather than re-purposing off-the-shelf parts

  • Ready Rig Ready Rig GS Stabilizer Kit with Case

    Use the Ready Rig GS Stabilizer to transfer the weight of a gimbal-mounted camera away from an operator's arms and shoulders. By redistributing the load to the user's hips and core, this rig enables you to extend your shooting time and lessens operator fatigue. It also reduces the bounce motion sometimes seen when doing handheld gimbal shots. The Ready Rig GS works with any gimbal in standard or underslung mode.

    The Ready Rig GS features a load capacity range of 1 to 30 pounds, carbon fiber support arms, and an aluminum frame. Its slim, compact profile suits it for use in tight spaces and car interior shots. A soft, zippered carrying case is included with this kit.

    Supports any gimbal/camera rig from 1-30 pounds
    Provides vertical axis stabilization while reducing operator fatigue
    Slim, lightweight design with carbon fiber support arms and aluminum components
    Operate gimbal in over- or under-slung configuration
    A soft, zippered carrying case is included in the kit
