MoVI For Cameras

If, like me and many other photographers, you find yourself dabbling more and more with motion and video, then no doubt you've run into a challenge: holding the camera steady. I guess we still photographers are a shaky bunch. But seriously, making steady video while handholding the camera is a big challenge. If you're serious about video production, then might I suggest you keep an eye out for this tremendous new device called MoVI. Built by Freefly Systems in Seattle, the MoVI is a digital 3-axis gyro-stabilized handheld camera gimbal. In layman's terms, you might be tempted to call it a Steadicam, but in fact it's poised as competition for the Steadicam brand. The premise is simple: create super-stabilized video, during handholding and even fast movements, that is so smooth it simulates the effect of flying. It's an amazing device. If you're serious about motion, you'll want to learn more about MoVI. I suggest you start at Vincent Laforet's blog.
