I think I'm suffering from MoVI envy.
Yep. No question about it.
Our production team had to do a low angle, three shot sequence a few weeks ago which we chose to do with nothing more than image stabilized lenses, a well-balanced cage with handle, and FCP X's built-in stabilization and shutter roll corrections. Let me rephrase that: given our budget (pro bono), we had no choice.
What we WANTED to use wasn't a Glidecam or Steadicam — although those are great tools. We WANTED to try out the MoVI M5. What made it worse is that a few nights later, a couple of our buds showed footage at a meetup where they HAD used a MoVI M5. The movements were incredible.
Check it out for yourself.
Movi M5 Boston Test
First test run of the Movi M5 carrying a 5D MK iii. this is the first time I've ever used this tool. I ran the system without a monitor around Boston. No follow focus was used.
Even just in Majestic mode this is a very awesome rig. Look for many more videos to come!
