For an independent filmmaker, showing you've got the abilities to produce a sharp, clean, quality image is very important for the success and longevity of the studio. Having a high end camera and knowing how to shoot with it will give you great images, but knowing how to create smooth movements within shots will give your shots an artistic and creative look that will put you over the top.
Running around with a camera on your shoulder all day is very draining, but sticking it on a tripod limits what you can do with it. Using camera gimbals and steadicams gives you those creative camera movements without sacrificing the smoothness of your movements.
Our MōVI Pro gimbal is the top of the line camera stabilizer that makes it easy to capture your image on the move with its high quality sensors and precise calibration. This light weight, versatile stabilizer was designed from the ground up to minimize downtime on set. Hot swappable intelligent batteries power the MōVI Pro, camera, and all accessories to keep you shooting all day long. MōVI Pro batteries strike just the right balance between size, performance, and usability. They give users instant status information via an integrated 'fuel gauge' and feature a host of battery management and protections built into the pack.
It features the world's smallest fully integrated 3-axis lens control system built into the camera stage. Adjust all 3 channels with either the MōVI Controller, MIMIC, or a combination of the two for optimal image quality and control. Another feature that sets the MōVI Pro gimbal apart from other stabilizers is the ring surrounding the gimbal. It's light weight and easy to use on the move producing the smoothest shots you can get. The ring includes a quick release monitor mount and an industry favorite, built-in stand to rest the camera when not in use. This preserves the camera operator and keeps him or her fresh for a full day or week of shooting.
Even with a stand to rest the camera, your camera operator is going to be tired. Our MōVI Pro gimbal is light weight and very reliable for getting quick movements, but you always want to save as much of the operator's energy as possible. To do this, we got a Ready Rig gimbal support system to complement our MōVI Pro gimbal. The Ready Rig system goes on your back like a backpack and brings light weight, carbon fiber rods over your shoulder to attach and hold the gimbal steadily in front of you. An ergonomic and adjustable backpack design distributes the camera weight off the arms and onto the hips, maximizing comfort and minimizing fatigue. It's a 30 lb load off of your camera operator's shoulders.
By keeping everything close to the body, the Ready Rig is able to make a system that maps to the operator's sense of space. It's mobility allows for camera operators to walk through doorways or sit in a car with ease, something dollies cannot achieve and handheld struggles with. What we love most about the Ready Rig is the small footprint it requires to travel with. It's so easy to assembles and fits into included carry case for easy travel, the fully assembled weight is only 10lb.
