    Hi Semiond:
    Unfortunately, there are too many variables to be able to answer this question. It depends on the specifics of the camera, the cabling, the lens, any filters, etc.

    The only really valid strategy is to tune the gimbal for your specific setup. There are several tutorial videos to show you how to do this: http://forum.freeflysystems.com/index.php?threads/m5-video-tutorials.4017/

    Hi,

    thanks, i saw the video, it was just to compare.

    The way to adjust motor strench is just to put Stiffness until we hear/see vibration and low it a little bit ?

    thanks

    Yes -- tune the tilt first, then roll, then pan.
    And be prepared to have to repeat that all again as there is inevitably some interaction.

    Be sure to test the MōVI as you plan to use it -- if you're going to hold it in both hands, test with both hands. If you're going to hold it with the top-handle, test with the top-handle. The way you hold it alters the tuning settings slightly.

    Andy.

    Does the cage recommendations for the BMPCC on the M5 still apply?
    Im about to get a pocket cinema camera today, but do i need to spend a great amount of money on a cage as well, or is it possible to use without?
