TECHNICAL + PRODUCTION TIDBITS for my industry friends and colleagues.
============================================================
while i never do release raw footage, i figured my first few frames using this amazing tool could help some in the industry re their decision in investing in one of these baddies..

this clip is essentially CRUDE+RAW footage, i did adjust the exposure a tad.

after last weeks color correction class, a long time student+colleague brian carpenter from leftLane was kind enough to bring his brand new movi M5 setup for the students and myself to play with.

- movi M5
- canon 5diii
- canon 16-35 2.8 II - aperture approx. at f4/5.6 infinity focus

note that i only played with the only played with the movi M5 in majestic mode briefly as i had another company to consult that same day,

here is what i gathered in a few minutes of movi usage

- (in MAJESTIC MODE) panning the entire movi unit LEFT+RIGHT, the camera on gimbal will slowly follow suit
- exposure/focus is difficult to adjust un-assisted on the fly as the movi almost always requires 2 handed operation
- the movi's design easily allows for extremely aggressive ground level tracking shots
- beautiful crane/pedestal shots are easily achieved similarly to other handheld stabilizers (limited only by physical arm reach)
- unlike a body mounted stabilizer, 360 degree camera movements are EQUALLY AS EASY re both left->right + right->left (no stabilization arm that gets in the way)
- no aggressive whip pans
- like any other handheld stabilizer, a movi operator will need to walk/run 'lightly' to eliminate footsteps bounce

'swing scores' - used with permission; thank you songfreedom.com

hopefully these little tips will help you on your way a movi M5/M10 purchase. i will try to provide a comprehensive review re this game-changer come end of the season. currently, i am still undecided which one to purchase.
