With Cine Gear on the horizon, Motorized Precision is already making waves with the announcement of a significant price cut for their MIA line. They are slashing the price by half of the original, bringing the cost to $75,000. This is a huge leap down from the original price, and it will make the art of precise camera movement available to more filmmakers.
However, the most significant aspect of this upcoming release is not the price drop but the fact that the MIA will now be waterproof. So, not only will filmmakers be able to push the boundaries of camera movement and placement, Motorized Precision will also be bringing these opportunities to more creatives. As before, you can still plug the MIA into a wall outlet for easy operation. So not only will Marvel and Microsoft be using the MIA, you might find one on a shoot of your own in the near future. All you need is a 110-volt wall socket and the MP studio software to control the arm. Check out the new pricing here.
