Movi uses an adjustable clamp to physically accommodate all models of iPhone and Android devices up to 90mm wide. However, there is a possibility that your phone won’t fit if you have a bulky case.
The Movi App works with iPhones running iOS 11 or later and is optimized for compatibility with flagship Android devices. Complete device compatibility details and recording capabilities (resolution/frame rate) here.
Most likely. Unless you have a bulky case on a large phone, it should fit and balance in Movi.
Yes! Lens attachments are supported on Movi, but you will need to counter-balance the weight of the lens for proper balance, available here.
Fisheye lenses may be tricky to balance without seeing the Movi in the shot!
Yes! Just touch the screen to adjust the exposure and focus.
Majestic Mode gives you direct control over Movi, smoothing and stabilizing your movements in two ways:
- It gives you an adjustable window, where you change how much of your movement Movi will ignore.
- It applies smoothing to the movement outside this window, to prevent jerky motion.
Change these settings to make Movi more responsive for tracking fast action, or smoother for slow cinematic moves.
Yes and no.
By default, Movi is in Majestic mode and will stabilize your footage no matter what you are recording with.
However, there are some things only our app offers. To name a few:
- Record start/stop from the Movi’s button
- Methods such as Echo, Timelapse, Movilapse, and Orbit
- Triggering mode-specific actions such as roll
The beta version of the app may not always be available, but if it is you can find it at gomovi.com/beta. Try it out and let us know what you think!
Movi has a USB-C port and comes with a standard USB cable for charging.
This is highly dependent on the amount of motion during use, and how well you balanced the phone in the clamp. It can last over 8 hours with a well-balanced setup and light use.
Yes, Movi will run continuously if it is plugged in. Note, the batteries must still be installed to handle surges in power as the motors correct disturbances during movement.

Yes, you can! In the settings you can switch between the back and front camera. You can even make selfie timelapses!
The top button triggers our app to start recording. The bottom button triggers super cool functionality in the app, like setting start/stop positions or kicking off a move. There is also an option in settings to change the functionality of the mode trigger in Majestic mode. Currently, you can opt to turn continuous roll on/off or freeze the position of your phone.
Movi has an industry standard ¼-20 insert on the bottom that is compatible with most tripods and tripod quick-release plates.
- The ¼ 20 threaded insert is intended to mount Movi to devices like tripods, cranes, sliders etc.
- The mount is not designed or recommended for use with vehicles or other high acceleration / vibration applications.
Movi doesn’t like to be dunked, but doesn’t mind a light shower. Don’t be afraid to bring your Movi to a beach, but it was not designed as a submersible.
