The Freefly Systems MōVI M5 Motorized 3-Axis Stabilizer (Gimbal Only) is a small, lightweight, handheld 3-axis stabilization camera gimbal. It is ideal for aerial devices since it is designed to carry DSLR and compact cameras weighing under 5 lb (2.2 kg).

Using MōVI, the possibilities of camera movements are limitless.  Even if you are running with the camera, there is no worry that image will be compromised, because the unique design provides camera stabilization like no other.

Majestic Mode (Pan/Tilt)

Majestic Mode allows for a single operator to intuitively control the direction of the gimbal by moving the handles, without compromising the stabilization of the image. The gimbal intelligently converts the operator's movements into stabilized pan and tilt movements. This allows for a very low profile single operator setup and accurate framing in tight situations.

Live Wireless Tuning & Graphing

A next generation stabilized gimbal deserves a fast, intuitive, and user friendly GUI (graphical user interface). The MōVI features a real-time bluetooth connection to the gimbal, which outputs all pertinent performance data and allows for live adjustment of any of the gimbal parameters.

Camera Compatibility

Please confirm camera tray sizing in the technical specifications. In general, the MōVI M5 is suitable for DSLR cameras, but larger ones will not fit inside the tray and may exceed the payload limit. Some cinema-style cameras will fit in the tray. Be sure to verify the combined camera, lens, and accessories weight is under the 5 lb payload capacity.

Remote Operation

Use the optional MōVI Controller (sold separately) for remote operation. This allows the operator to focus on the physical movement of the camera itself, while one remote operator controls framing and another operator remotely controls lens focus and gimbal pan/tilt, among other controls.

Drift Free Horizon

Pair the Drift Free Horizon with your Stabilized Mode. The proprietary control algorithms developed for the MōVI utilize a very high accuracy GPS. This GPS allows for acceleration correction when the gimbal is used outdoors or has a GPS signal. This feature is useful when used on cars and helicopters where sustained extreme acceleration forces can cause non-GPS aided systems to drift.

Silent Drive

Capturing on-camera audio is no problem with the MōVI, as the system is virtually silent. Because the entire motor/drive system was designed in-house, Freefly was able to reduce the noise frequency signature of the gimbal to a virtually inaudible level.

Shot Recorder

The system has the ability to record the exact camera position, height, pan, tilt and roll angle to assist your VFX team in post-production.

Custom Direct Drive Motors

High torque and lightweight are two attributes that don't usually go hand-in-hand.  Drawing on years of brushless motor design experience, Freefly was able to create a remarkably lightweight motor that still has enough torque to handle larger camera packages.

NOTE: This MōVI M5 gimbal does not include a Travel Case, MIMIC, or a camera. All accessories sold separately.
