Holiday Gift Guide: Freefly Movi Smartphone Stabilizing Gimbal

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.

Bad News, Good News

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.

The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
