    Alta 8 MōVI Pro

    When image quality cannot be compromised a heavy lifter like the Alta 8 can fly an Alexa Mini or RED camera package with cinema glass and FIZ control. 

    The Alta 8 carries a MōVI Pro that can be mounted underneath or on top of the drone for a variety of drone shots not possible with other systems.

    Freefly's technology continues to provide us filmmakers with innovative technologies to move the camera in new ways.

    Thanks Freefly!
