Freefly Systems is now delivering the new MōVI Ring accessory for Freefly’s MōVI M5, M10 and M15 handheld 3-axis stabilizers.
The MōVI Ring is a rigid carbon fiber, hoop-shaped frame designed to enhance ergonomic handling of MōVI stabilizers. Once secured to a MōVI in place of the standard T-bar and handles, the MōVI Ring helps the operator deftly hold the MōVI in any position; from just off the ground to high overhead. This new accessory is especially useful when a camera move requires the MōVI to be handed from one operator to another.
“We’ve found that MōVI operators are doing a lot of handoffs with the MōVI,” says Freefly Systems president Tabb Firchau, “and the MōVI Ring offers both the operator handing it off and the one receiving it a way to have two points of contact that provide great stability. We’ve seen it used in a lot of action sports shooting, including one situation where an operator launches himself off huge ski jumps and uses the MōVI Ring to hold the MōVI while orienting his body in midair for an upright landing.”
Installing the MōVI Ring is quick and easy and can be used in conjunction with Freefly’s Toad In The Hole Quick Release system. Toad In The Hole is a lightweight, low profile quick release unit that provides an easy mount and release solution for MōVI stabilizers.
The MōVI Ring has a $299.00 MSRP, and is available at www.freeflysystems.com and through Freefly Systems’ dealers worldwide.
