Not sure when to post this but.....

 

Im looking to see if anyone has used a MOVI or Ronin on a hands free segway with a steadicam arm/ hard mount?

 

I'm doing a project that requires 50 minute takes on the segway and the hard mount/arm steadicam with antlers is not getting it done due to wind/ bumps and uneven terrain.

 

thanks

Does it have to be a segway ? You could mount a Techno 15 with Libra 3 on a Polaris 6x6 quad and get pretty much any shot that you could do on a hard mounted steadicam.

I have not used one, but I saw that setup at NAB this year.

Reach out to Pedro Guimaraes. I know he worked on the Ronin promo video as an operator and I believe he used his Segway. I think it was just handheld though; no mounting bracket. But I'm sure he's got ideas how to make it work.
