    Hi everyone!
    Do you know if it's possibile to fit the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4k on the Movi m5?
    I'm scared I won't be able to fit the camera + all the cables / accessories, since the BM is pretty big.
    Thank you!

    Hi Jason, thank you for your answer!
    Unfortunately, the pic shows the Cinema Camera 4k and the Pocket Camera... not the Pocket Cinema Camera 4k (the new one) :(

    Nevermind, I tested it myself... It doesn't fit the Movi M5 cage. It's way too wide! :(

    P.S. It fits the Movi M15 cage, but you cannot move it side to side... so you can't balance it.

    Correct, BMP4k with it's almost 18cm of wide is very picky when coming to gimbals. Good to have something with roll bar + camera plate based on tubes so it's easy to replace with longer ones.

    I think that there is no choice but to use a counterweight as a way to put it on M5.

    Have you tried using it with counterweights?

    Theres one guy who did it on Youtube.

    Look at the comments between him and me

    If you are unable to move the camera itself side-to-side for roll balance adjustment, the roll beam itself has a side-to-side adjustment, specifically for that purpose.

    Only the M10 & M15 have the Roll beam adjustment.

    Try talking to a tire shop. They use adhesive weights. That'll do the trick. I knew the BMPCC4K would fit in the M5!

    Alternatively: adhesive lead weights used for balancing unmanned aircraft (or RC model aircraft):

    Hope this helps,
