I'm selling my brand new  (never been used) MOVI gyro stabilized camera platform.

I thought I could use it for the show I'm working on.. "Hawaii Five-o"   I set it up using a Canon C-300 camera and a Panavision prime lens, Heden motor with a Preston MDR.

We turned it on and .... It worked... very cool.  It's like a hand held Libra Head.  But it takes too long for us to balance and shoot.  "TV TIME"  CRAZY FAST....

So.... I concede...and would like to sell the package.

This was a big hit a NAB this year.  The payload is 10 pounds max.  They just came out with an upgrade to allow for a 15 pound payload.  

It's expensive but the possibilities are endless for any type of moving shots.  Check out their website -- Freefly. - MOVI


original cost was $ 15,000.00


I'll sell the complete MOVI 10 package with Transmitter bracket/strap for $10,000.00.

The Freefly company will reissue their warrantee once I send them the unit to inspect and send it out to the new buyer.  This will cost me $250.00


This is a great deal!  I just want to move this.......

Why not luis? Some of us might have an interest in trying one out at a fair price, or to experiment with combining it with a steadicam.


Just to save Greg having to answer more inquiries from here: He told me it was sold soon after posting  ;)

Congrats Kevin (and thanks for stealing it away under my nose :lol: ). Have fun with it and let us know how you combine it with steadicam and how that works out! I wanted it to try some combinations, too - well there'll be another one for sale sometime  ;)

Hey Frederic (and anyone else who's looking).  I just put my M10 up for sale in case you're still looking.


Used, but in very good shape.  Check it out here:

to be fair to Greg and James, I think most who said it would replace steadicam had little or no experience. The more experienced ops were never worried. I think it's a nice tool for certain shots.


After it's appearance, I have actually seen a few times having one would come in handy. But have been reluctant to get one due to price, weight limit and set up time.
