Stabilization

 
 
 
 

We are very proud to have a working relationship with one of the top innovators in the industry for our camera stabilization needs both in the air and on the ground. Freefly Systems has established themselves as the leading force behind brushless gimbal systems as well as their very own aerial platforms. We're proud to represent a hard working and pioneering brand.


 
 
 

Given the name "The Heavylifter" by our team, the Mōvi Pro is the hard working stabilization platform used to carry the cinema cameras of today's largest productions. Flying the Arri Alexa Mini or a RED Weapon setup with full F.I.Z. control is what this configuration spends the majority of its time doing. Freefly's latest round of improvements and refinements to the older M15 bring us to the Mōvi Pro with a stronger pan motor, integrated wiring and much more. We can trust we'll be providing a top notch experience when this gimbal is on your project.

 
 
Movi M5
 
 

The lightweight and versatile Mōvi M5 is the gimbal fitting the bill for most of our small to medium sized camera requirements. This gimbal typically will fly with a Canon DSLR or Panasonic GH4 style camera body and lens combination while hoisted into the air by an 8-blade bird.

 
 
 
 
 
The MōVI Controller This is a professional grade remote system that allows the operator full control over Pan, Tilt, and Roll. Compatible with the MōVI M5, M10, and M15, this controller provides telemetry from the MōVI and allows the user to access MōVI configuration menus to enable on the fly adjustment of key MōVI parameters.

Power

We power many of our camera systems and more with the Blueshape® batteries. They offer longer operational times to most every system we power and offer higher charge cycle counts than other competitors. BLUESHAPE makes a wide range of batteries designed for the V-Lock mounting system, the most popular standard in the video industry. Employing the world’s best industrial quality Li-Ion cells, BLUESHAPE is proud to provide an array of products with the highest energy density available on the market today and suitable for a wide range of video production equipment, from light use to high demand cameras.

DJI s1000 + MōVI M5

Supports mirrorless Sony A7Sii cameras, Canon EOS DSLR Series, Nikon DSLR Series and Blackmagic Cinema Cameras

 
DJI S1000
 

DJI S1000 + MōVI M5

The DJI S1000 paired with a MōVI M5 is one of Snaproll Media's busiest UAS builds. The relatively compact and reliable package has allowed us to operate in remote locations flying cameras that pair with the best in the business. Often used for TV, Web and smaller budget movies, the S1000 setup spends a fair amount of time on the road and on the go.

Ground Level Services

 

Freefly TERO

The Freefly TERO is a completely new way to move the camera. The system allows for an extremely dynamic low camera angle coupled with full 3-axis control of the MōVI stabilizer to create never-before-seen shots. With our custom Vibration Isolation System on a car as smooth and agile as this, you’ll rethink what is possible from a chase car. 


 

CUSTOM solutions

Being able to operate "off-the-shelf" (OTS) equipment is one thing, but our background is in engineering and building our own aerial platforms. Our in-house machining technology allows us to outfit current OTS solutions with custom hardware, higher-end components, improved avionics and more by creating parts from scratch. By using tools such as AutoCAD® and SOLIDWORKS® we can take a concept and bring it to life with completely custom UAS solutions.
