In camera electronic image stabilization has become mainstream with consumer gear, but what's used with professional productions to stabilize the image?

One option that I found is The Movi Pro:



I can imagine that there are alternatives, maybe even at lower budgets?

Depends on what you want to do - Steadicam, Glidecam, Ronin, there's quite a range at price points from under $100.00 to over $20,000.00.

The price goes way over $20,000 for a high end Steadicam rig, think BMW prices.

This Movi Pro looks quite versatile, but pretty uncomfortable for handheld operations. Are they new players on the gimbal scene?

They've been around for about 6 years.

This video claims to be shot with a MOVI M10. I suspect handheld for most scenes and mounted on a drone for the arials.


What is your impression, is it good gear?

True.

Aren't the results much better than those of in-camera electronic stabilizers?



On the other hand, how would a GoPro look on a Steadicam rigg?

Depends on how skilled the operator is.

How about headmounting an action cam to a chicken?

There is the Steadicam Smoothee, which intended for phones and GoPro cameras. There is no vest or arm, since you don't need one really need these because the cameras are so light. A number of similar devices are available from other manufacturers.

However, it does have the same operating limitations as a gimbal mount. With a full Steadicam rig you can pan and tilt the camera, although the latter lends to be an arc.

One of the comments says "drones are now useless. eagles can do better":

360 degrees camera "eaglemounted":

Potato Jet has tested the BM Pocket Cinema Camera 4k with some comments on the Movi Pro as well.

Again 360, not exactly as elegant as an eagle, but dangerous and fast. An 'overcapture' example from the GoPro Fusion, from here: www.immersiveshooter.com/2018/07/25/what-is-overcapture-how-to-overcapture/



The question is, where is the camera mounted?
