For a few days now Vincent Laforet has been teasing a new ‘revolutionary’ product. That product has just been unveiled and he was NOT kidding. M?VI is a hand held camera stabilization rig that will simply blow your mind. I could babble on for a long time about the thing you could use this for , and the other products that might well become redundant with this invention, but it’s best if you just watch the videos. Watch the first one , then pick your jaw up off the floor and watch the next ones.
It sounds like the M10, which supports 10lbs will be available soon for $15,000 or thereabouts. Once that is under way Freefly Cinema will begin production of a smaller M5 that will support a DSLR solution and cost around $7500. Expect the price to be upgradeable as you add all manner of remote controls…..
