Apple has released two new videos, both remarkable. The "release" video is especially fun if you're a nature aficionado. Try to recognize each species before the next one comes on screen. The making-of video is also very cool: "The shark ate my iPhone!"

BTW, in one part of the Making-of video, you can see that the photographer has a gimbal on the iPhone.

Here's one that got a good review and in relatively inexpensive:

Has any SMUG member bought and used one of these?

Here's a comparison:

And here's what the photographers in the Making-of video might be using (at least it looks the same):

We took the Freefly Movi Cinema Robot on an outing today. My son (a millennial) was able to use it after less than an hour watching very short tutorials. Even I (geezer, baby boomer) did several short videos with the MCR.
Note: we did not use a skateboard, much less a motorized one, even though skateboards come up over and over in the Freefly videos.
It's actually quite easy to use, even though it has a lot of buttons and settings. How it can be used in specific settings is another thing.

In another thread, Jay posted about a short video he made combining time lapse and a slowly rotating tripod mount.

The MCR has this built in, as well as other time-lapse functions. These can be used on a tripod or by setting the MCR down on a relatively flat surface, or using it handheld while doing your own movements.
