The MÅVI M10 is produced by Freefly Systems of Seattle WA. The device is a digital, 3-axis, gyro-stabilized camera gimbal. People are calling it a game changer, but it is just now in production. The device weighs less than 3 and a half pounds and can be operated solo, or with the help of a second operator.
It is an amazing stabilizer, but there’s a catch – it’s $15,000. A second, smaller version called the M5 is planned to sell for $7,500.
