Re: MoVI BTS Stabiliser Rig

"OTOH If you're the only guy in town with one of these I'll bet you could recover your costs very quickly before the manufacturer went to the wall"

Yes Mark, now that's the way I think too! (Justification for new toy!!!).

Cheers,

Vaughan

Re: MoVI BTS Stabiliser Rig

So I've been watching a lot of footage shot with these systems. take
for example. is it just me or does anyone else notice like, small movements.. jittering in the camera movement? Like it just doesn't feel organic like a steadicam. Am I losing it? check 2:26-2:32 in that video.

Re: MoVI BTS Stabiliser Rig

I got to try one of these out at Alex Buono's Visual Storyteller seminar last month. Definitely a cool piece of gear. One thing though - it is a complex piece of equipment that does require skill to setup and use (at least in it's present form).

Also, no data provided on how the rig is controlled, whether it has a single-operator mode or not...who knows how well it works.

Re: MoVI BTS Stabiliser Rig

The vendor is a big supplier of RC parts, probably can purchase parts at the lowest price possible.

The vendor replied "you need one gimbal controller card, then adjust it, to make it work."

Edit: They sent a PDF explaining assembly details, email me if you want a copy.
