This is the Movi M5 set up for Majestic mode, meaning one operator can pan and tilt the unit using the built in controls. If you are interested in a 2-op kit, please also add the Movi Controller Kit.
The MoVI is a huge leap forward, some call it a game changer or a "Steadicam Killer." From what we've seen they may be right. You be the judge. Some may ask why the MoVI over other 3-axis gimbals? Simply put the Freefly MoVI is built upon years of experience in multi-rotor airborne camera platforms. Those years of experience and the Freefly team's obsessive attention to detail shows throughout.
If you'll be working alone, this is the ideal setup. With the MoVI M5 in majestic mode, you'll control the camera by steering the handles letting the M5 smooth out all your inputs for glassy smooth footage. Is as simple* as mounting your camera and utilizing either of the two tilt modes. The first will hold a level horizon or angle of your choosing no matter how the camera moves. The second mode, called majestic angle, will follow the handles in both pan and tilt giving you a smooth movement and complete freedom for framing.
The unit can be adjusted and fine tuned for performance on the fly with the included Nexus 7 Android tablet. The bluetooth connection allows you to monitor all paramaters of the M5 during operation. One really helpful feature is the real-time graphing of each axis' motor output. This will help you determine if you've achieved proper balance.
We'll include your choice of one 3ft HDMI cable, you'll see an option at checkout.
With the majestic mode only package you'll receive the following items:
Please view the camera compatibility chart to make sure your desired camera is compatible!
CAUTION: Contains LiPo batteries. Please read the manual before charging/discharging batteries to avoid damage or fire.
*It goes without saying the the MoVI M5 is an incredibly sophisticated system. That in mind, its not something that's mastered by opening the case and jumping into your shoot. We suggest a minimum of 2 days to throughly read the instructions, view the setup tutorial videos (here), familiarize yourself with the kit, learn how to care for and maintain the batteries & balance your camera. We have done a lot of homework to build a system that's as turnkey as possible, but pay special attention to your camera setup to ensure you have planned for all the variables (power, mounting, wireless video relay, etc.) to make your shoot a success. LensProToGo cannot be held responsible for inadequate planning, but we will do our very best to provide you with the support we can.
