BALANCING THE MōVI PRO MōVI Pro’s balancing procedure is an important part of the setup process. A properly balanced MōVI Pro will offer the best stabilization performance and the longest battery life. For easier balancing, secure MōVI Pro on the MōVI Ring Pro, MōVI Pro Landing Gear, or MōVI Classic Handle with MōVI Dock and C-Stand. Make sure to finalize the camera package build prior to balancing as adding accessories afterward will require the system to be rebalanced for optimal performance. Remove protective covers such as lens caps that will not be used while shooting before balancing the system. Items Needed »» MōVI Pro Gimbal »» Camera Package* »» MōVI Ring Pro or Classical Handle* »» MōVI Dock* *These items are not included with the MōVI Pro. TILT BALANCE (FRONT-TO-BACK) 1. Open the toggle clamp on the top crossbar and the middle toggle clamp on the bottom crossbar. Hold the camera securely at all times when the toggle clamps are open. 2. Slide the camera forward or backward until the camera remains level. 3. Close the top and bottom camera rail toggle clamps. | OPERATION M A N U A L 59

TILT BALANCE (VERTICAL AXIS) 1. Rotate the tilt axis so the camera lens points straight up. 2. Open the four vertical adjustment toggle clamps located inline with the tilt motor’s axis of rotation. 3. Slide the entire camera cage up or down until the camera remains pointing straight up when released. 4. Close the toggle clamps. 5. Confirm tilt balance by moving the camera to several tilt angles and confirming the camera remains stationary in the tilt axis once released. ROLL BALANCE 1. Open the toggle clamp on the top crossbar and the two outer toggle clamps on the bottom crossbar. 2. Slide camera and platform side-to-side until the camera does not roll once released. | OPERATION M A N U A L 60

3. Close the top and bottom camera rail toggle clamps. 4. Confirm roll balance by moving the camera to several roll angles and confirming the camera remains stationary in the roll axis once released. PAN BALANCE 1. Mount the MōVI Pro in the stand. 2. Align the MōVI Pro such that the camera lens is lined up with the handle bar’s cross beam. 3. Use the handle to tilt the MōVI Pro 5 to 10 degrees and observe which way pan rotates. a. If the lens points to the low side, it indicates the MōVI Pro is nose heavy and the pan arm needs to slide backwards. b. If the lens points to the high side, it indicates the MōVI Pro is tail heavy and the pan arm needs to slide forwards. 4. Open the two toggle clamps underneath the battery trays which secure the pan arm in place. | OPERATION M A N U A L 61

5. Slide the gimbal in the direction needed as indicated in Step 3 and repeat the process until the gimbal does not swing left or right when tilting about the pan axis. 6. Close the two pan toggle clamps and confirm that the camera does not swing left or right when the MōVI Pro is tilted 5 to 10 degrees. | OPERATION M A N U A L 62

TUNING THE MōVI PRO Once the MōVI Pro is balanced, it will need to be tuned. This maximizes the stability and will allow for the smoothest camera movements possible. Hardware that is mounted to the camera or the MōVI Pro must be firmly secured; loose hardware can limit the stabilization performance by causing NOTE unwanted vibrations during the tuning process. BASIC TUNING 1. Make sure the camera payload, including all accessories are in place, tightly secured, and well-balanced. 2. Turn on the MōVI Pro by pressing the power button. 3. Use an Android or iOS mobile device to connect to MōVI Pro by selecting “Connect” on the app’s home screen and then choosing the MōVI Pro you are using. 4. Once the connection has been established, open the Tuning Menu under “Configurations.” 5. In order for Autotune to work properly, the camera should be completely free to move. 6. The Autotune feature’s margin of error can be adjusted to reach a higher Autotune Percentage. This will increase the gimbal’s performance but can affect the gimbal’s sensitivity to being unbalanced. Refer to the table below for suggested Autotune Percentages. 7. Start Autotune to tune the Pan, Tilt, and Roll stiffness and filter values of the MōVI Pro. 8. After the Autotune process is complete, test the MōVI Pro for vibrations or oscillations during use. If any vibrations or oscillations exist, determine what axis they are related to and reduce the stiffness of the axis using the Tuning Menu on the app. 9. If the vibrations and oscillations continue, refer to the Advanced Tuning guide. MōVI PRO CONFIGURATION SUGGESTED AUTOTUNE PERCENTAGE Full cage, connected to the top and bottom of the camera; most 70.0% standard configurations. | OPERATION M A N U A L 63

Autotuning can also be accessed and initiated through the display screen on the GCU for convenient autotuning when a mobile device is not available. NOTE ADVANCED TUNING The advanced tuning options give the user direct control over the MōVI Pro’s camera stabilization. This allows users to customize the MōVI Pro to meet their exact needs with features such as Filters, Jolt Rejection, and more. Advanced tuning is not recommended for normal usage. F ILT E R S The MōVI Pro has a number of software filters that are applied to remove unwanted signals from the system. The Filter settings are the second most important setting for achieving maximum stabilization performance. The purpose of the filters is to eliminate noise and vibration due to structural resonances in the camera, lens, or gimbal. Setting the filters too high or too low can cause signal disturbances that can reduce the overall stabilization. 1. Pan, Roll, and Tilt Filters These control the strength of the filter that is applied to the motor controller signal. The filters apply to each respective axis individually and can be found under the Main page of the Tuning menu. 2. Gyro Filter This controls the strength of the filter applied to the Inertial Measurement Unit’s (IMU) signal. Adjusting the Gyro filter can be done by going to the “Advanced” page under the tuning menu and selecting Gyro Filter. This filter applies to all three axes. | OPERATION M A N U A L 64

T UNI NG FILTERS It will take experience to recognize the symptoms of too-high or too-low filters and trial-and-error to find the optimum values for a particular setup. NOTE 1. If the gimbal is vibrating at a high frequency after tuning, increase the filter values. 2. If the gimbal is oscillating or rocking at a low frequency after tuning, decrease the filter values. H OLD ST RENGTH While Stiffness values set how much the camera resists moving (with respect to the outside world), Hold Strength sets how aggressively it tries to return to its target position if it displaced. Indirectly, this also sets how aggressively MōVI Pro follows orientation commands from a second operator using a MōVI Controller or MIMIC. The default Hold Strength values are set to thirty (30) for the MōVI Pro. Increasing Hold Strength has pros and cons that should be considered depending on the shooting situation. Higher Hold Strengths PROS Higher Hold Strengths CONS »» Better rejection of disturbances, »» Disturbances that do make it through such as wind, cable tugging, and can lead to jolts, since the camera inertial forces due to imbalance. will react faster to outside forces. This can be limited through Jolt »» Better performance at long focal Rejection. See page 66. length. »» Possibility of overshoot if the second »» Faster tracking of commands from a operator stops a pan or tilt abruptly. second operator using a MōVI Con- troller or MIMIC. T UNI NG HOL D S TRENGTH 1. To tune hold strength, increase the hold strength of an axis and test its response to a disturbance. 2. If the axis returns to its original position too slowly, increase the hold strength. 3. If the axis overshoots its original position, decrease the hold strength. 4. The final value should be set by weighing the Pros and Cons and testing the setup to see if the MōVI Pro behaves as desired. | OPERATION M A N U A L 65

JOLT REJ ECTION To help enable higher Hold Strength settings while mitigating some of the cons listed above, Jolt Rejection can sense jolts and soften the gimbals recovery effort. Tuning Jolt Recovery Jolt Rejection helps prevent the MōVI Pro from overshooting its target orientation when responding to a sudden disturbance. A higher Jolt Rejection value increases the softening of the response; however, values that are too high can cause the MōVI Pro to react too slowly to disturbances. M AX CONTROL RATE The maximum rate of camera movement can be used to enable higher Hold Strengths while reducing the possibility of overshoot. This is especially helpful when shooting with longer focal lengths. Tuning Max Control Rate 1. To increase the control over the camera’s movements, increase the Max Control Rate. 2. To increase the smoothness of the camera’s movements, decrease the Max Control Rate. This will reduce the operator’s control over the camera’s movements. Max Roll Angle The Max Angle Roll will set a maximum angle between the roll axis and the joint’s zero degree angle; this can be used to create a Majestic Roll effect for the MōVI Pro. MōVI PRO SETUP COMPLETE Once you have adjusted the MōVI Pro’s parameters to suit your requirements, setup is complete! | OPERATION M A N U A L 66
