    First quick test of the "Timelapse" & "Barrel Roll" functions. In my opinion the MOVI App needs lot of improvement with settings for lock focus, ISO, shutter, whitebalance etc. - like Skyflow for example.
    Barrel Roll is very cool but very tricky. Needs lot of training to get a great effect. You really have to find ONE point as "axis" where you have to concentrate on. I am still at the beginning... :)



    Making Of: Well, this happens when you stand up 04:30 AM in the morning to catch the really first light and are not familiar with your new equipment :) In this case I had problems to manage the usually learned settings to get on the MOVI App. Well at the end it became lighter and lighter and the result -> see above. Trusty instead: @3LeggedThing ALBERT, @Moment WIDE & @Insta360 ONE and of course iPhone X

    I hope MOVI can barrel roll with a 7+, seems the extra length of a + might help with keeping the handle out of the shots, especially with a anamorphic lens.

    Thanks for the demos.

    See FAQ #18, Lou. The iPhone X with Otterbox is too big to barrel roll, I'm afraid. Not sure about the 7+.

    That means in general that we all should think twice when planning to purchase a new iPhone then. Long time I was a Plus user and now very happy with the little smaller iPX - which seems to have the perfect size for a gimbal like MOVI.

    iPhone Plus devices will always make kinda trouble as far as I know - in size and weight.

    Back to the videos: I am really impressed about this totally smoooooth movement. Didn't they made a great job?! Well and now image to combine your MOVI with a Rhino ROV and you will have something similar like an Edelkrone - but for MUCH less money.

    Hey Zach, I had no regular order number cause I didn't order directly but from a reseller in Germany. They also send me the counterweights today, so I can finally use my iPhone with my lovely MOMENT Lenses :)

    Frank, do those Moment lens work on iPhone cases other than those provided by Moment? I have an Otterbox case on my iPhone X but it's not clear how the Moment lenses mount.

    Thanks

    You definitely need the Moment cases. Otherwise it doesn't work. The cases are kind of bayonet ring.

    Oh. That's too bad. Understandable, but too bad -- I wonder how feasible it is to repeated take the iPhone X out of and back into an Otterbox case without losing some of the benefits. Certainly the Lifeproof cases lose their integrity.

    I can see a second iPhone X in my future!
