    I know Freefly is at the really beginning of their iOS App. Nevertheless I am missing two functions:

    • active tracking
    • zoom option

    Especially the first one would help a lot to keep the subject in focus. And "zoom" can also be simply switching the two lenses (1x, 2x) of the iPhone.

    What's your opinion?

    Active tracking is on the roadmap for sure, zoom is more of a question mark at this time since the iphone lens OIS on the iPhone 8 and X make it less useful.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Hi Tabb,

    great to hear that active tracking is on your roadmap. Hopefully not the last point of your backlog ;-)

    Van you explain the problem why zoom and iPhone OIS make it less usefull, plz? Just to understand.

    Cheers,

    Frank

    Tabb - The ability to zoom or at least be able to use the 2x lens would be useful. At least you should be able to set the default Majestic options and then use another app. Fast response and narrow window would have been useful yesterday. See this comparison. Using the Movi app the jet is a little dot. Using the camera app I was able to get closer but the standard Majestic lag was challenging to keep things centered. Tracking would not be helpful without the ability to zoom.

    You can do this. Just open the Movi app, set up your Windows and Response, Tilt/Roll Lock, then switch to whatever capture app you want. You'll just have to start/stop recording on screen, instead of with the Rec trigger on Movi.

    Hi guys, anything new for the cinematic robot, haven‘t heard from you for a long time, is this product and its development dead?

    Hi, thanks Eric for bringing the question up! FreeFly has gone into total radio silence ;)

    Hi Pär, I don‘t know if they will answer, I guess they stopped with the development and updates. I have paid €300... Hopefully Tabb will give us more detailed information
