Vincent Laforet took the wraps off of the new M?VI M10 digital 3-axis gyro-stabilized handheld camera gimbal yesterday. The new unit has the potential to serve as a substitute for virtually every form of camera stabilization on the market today – including Steadicams, sliders, jibs and dollies.
The M?VI M10 will retail for $15k and should support a DSLR rig or a bare bones RED Epic. Based on the price, it is clear that this is not targeted toward amateur filmmakers, but should be a boon for both indie and higher-end filmmakers given its capabilities.
A smaller, M5 version is said to be in the works for smaller HDSLR kits. Additionally, a larger M20 version is in development for full-on RED Epic and ARRI Alexa outfitted rigs.
