Best Stabilizer of NAB 2014: Freefly Movi M5

Camera gimbal and stabilizer rig with award

Freefly Movi M5 wins the Best Stabilizer of NAB 2014 Award.

A 3-axis gimbal counteracts the movements of a camera operator, and this gives footage the ultimate, cinematic smooth move look. Freefly's Movi M5 takes on the growing competition and helps make high production value easy. By the very nature of being lightweight and hand operated, the Movi M5 is more accessible than say, some sled and vest systems or dollies. The custom design centers on a proprietary inertial measurement unit and brushless direct drive system. The fully protected wiring and tool-less balancing are design attributes that quickly elevate this rig from others. With a payload of 5lb. and control features like pan/tilt, a graphic user interface, silent operation, and a way to measure the amount of allowed camera shake, this is a full featured camera stabilizer. The Movi M5 itself is $4,995 with many various systems available and can ship in 4-6 weeks.
