    Hi there,

    I'm after a stand for the Movi Pro. I prefer to run without the ring, instead using the classic handles. However the old stand for the m10 isn't high enough, with the bottom of the camera touching the ground.


    Are there any decent alternatives? I've seen a few kicking around for a crazy price. I'd like not to pay >$200 for a stand. The original movi stand is pretty much what I need only 10cm taller.

    Thanks

    Maybe build one out of PVC pipe?

    Steve Maller's the guy to answer that...he's made some great "ghetto" stands from PVC pipe!

    Or you can use the Movi Pro ring as a stand just for balancing purposes and mount to the handle bars when you are about to shoot.

    I think OP wants it for in between shots, not specifically for balance.

    I think k graham put one together using a c-stand and a bike hanger-thing from lowes. It looked solid. However, a nice portable c-stand still 150 at least, I'm not putting my MōVI on a light stand or pvc sorry lol. Tried pvc with m10, was fine but non the fastest/sturdiest
