MIOPS Capsule360 is a modular, pocket-sized motion control box
Meet the newest member of the MIOPS family, the Capsule360. Deemed the 'most versatile motion box ever created' by its creators, the Capsule360 is a pocket-sized motion device currently being funded on Kickstarter that works with any camera or smartphone.
What sets Capsule360 apart from the rest of MIOPS' lineup is that it can be be as simple or robust as your filming needs demand.
Out of the box, a single Capsule360 only captures one range of motion—panning. But, when paired with MIOPS' optional L-bracket, that single unit can also be used for tilting. Combine two units and you get a rig that can both pan and tilt, all without the need for wires—the Capsule360 devices will automatically determine which one is for panning and which one is for tilting.
MIOPS is also offering a Capsule Slider accessory that will let you add yet another range of motion to your shots.
Like MIOPS' other systems, the speed and direction of the motion is controlled using MIOPS smartphone app for iOS and Android. The app, which connects via Bluetooth, is used to program the motion path of the device.
In addition to manual configuration, the app can also work to keep track of a subject with both object tracking and face tracking. The app is also capable of controlling the camera settings to account for bulb ramping, interval ramping, long exposures, and high dynamic range (HDR).
If you purchase an optional turntable accessory, you can also program the app to capture 360-degree product photos.
The Capsule360 features a built-in rechargeable battery that can work for eight hours straight of continuous use or up to one week long in time-lapse mode. There's also an option to attach a USB battery pack to extend the battery life.
As with all of MIOP's previous devices, the Capsule360 is currently being crowdfunded on Kickstarter with an expected ship date of December 2018. As of publishing this article, it's already surpassed its $75,000 goal with 28 days to go. A single standalone Capsule360 starts at $200 and depending on the accessories and add-ons you want, prices go up from there.
