What’s New from Freefly
Wednesday, 06 August 2014
Freefly has some new accessories for the MōVI M5 and M10. Here is a roundup of these exciting new products.
The Freefly Systems MōVI Controller is a professional-grade remote system that allows the operator full control over Pan, Tilt and Roll. Compatible with the MōVI M5 and M10, 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. The MōVI Controller also simplifies the remote control station by providing power for an LCD monitor and wireless video system.
The Freefly Systems Toad in the Hole Quick Release is a sleek, lightweight, low-profile quick release unit, which provides an easy mount-and-release solution for your MōVI. The Toad In The Hole allows the operator to remove the MōVI from the handle assembly, and it attach to any other support, such as a crane, jib, or car mount (with a Toad installed) in a matter of seconds. Fiddling around with alignment is not required when engaging the Quick Release – just attach and rotate to the desired angle (from 0-360°) for shooting. The Quick Release uses a clamp to secure the MōVI. This clamp, along with the secondary release button, are used to release the MōVI.
The Freefly Systems MōVI Ring is a lightweight, rigid carbon fiber frame designed to provide additional points of contact for an operator holding the MōVI M5 or M10. The MōVI Ring can either mount directly to the MōVI M5 or M10, but also works in combination with the Toad In The Hole accessory.
The Freefly Systems MōVI M10 Tool-less Pan Knuckle is an upgrade to the original pan knuckle found on the MōVI M10, allowing for the system to be balanced fully without the use of tools.
