The Holiday Season is upon us. It's time to start thinking about (and buying) some gifts for the people in your life. Whether you are looking for a gift for a friend, family members, or yourself, we have some great ideas for you here at VJ. One such gift is the Freefly Movi smartphone stabilizing gimbal.

We have already featured a smartphone stabilizer on our Gift Guide, but this one is worth your time too. One of the biggest issues when shooting video with a smartphone is shaky footage. Because the phones are so light-weight, they can be hard to control, and the slightest movement can make your video look amateurish. While phones are taking care of this more and more internally with digital stabilization, they can only go so far. A great stabilizer will not only get rid of that small shake, but also can help make your footage look incredibly cinematic.

The Movi is more than just a stabilizer. They are calling it a "personal cinema robot" with an array of pre-programmed modes and settings that give your footage an amazing look. It also has object following software so you can keep whatever you are shooting in frame without worry. 

The Movi has a 3 axis stabilization with pan, tilt, and roll motors, a companion app for iOS, 5 shooting modes and USB C charging.

You can buy it from Freefly for $299 here.

A huge market for content had just opened up.

Q: What do TV news and Netflix have in common? A: They both appear on the same screen. They both tell stories.

This morning, I went out early to buy my copy of the weekend FT — a great newspaper, by the way. I was a bit surprised to see that my regular newsstand, on 6th Avenue and 55th Street, had exactly 3 newspapers for sale — one copy of Baron’s and two copies of The New York Post. That was it. No FT, no NY Times, no Washington Post, no… nothing.
