Sure you can!
If we haven’t tested your phone and added it to the Compatibility Chart, we just can’t say for sure how well the Movi and the Movi app works with it. Here are some things to consider:
Check out this article for specific physical details about the Movi, so you can measure your phone (or phone in case) to see if it fits in the Movi.
When it comes to communicating with the Movi, if you want to control parameters of robot behavior, change modes (Echo, Timelapse, Movilapse, Orbit, Barrel Roll or Smartpod) you will need to be in the Movi app.
If you want to use the physical buttons/triggers to control the Movi behaviors/modes or phone functions, you will need be in the Movi app or FiLMiC Pro app. More information about FiLMiC Pro Movi integration can be found below.
No specific app is required for general capture, so if you have a favorite phone that doesn’t work very well with our app, or you have a video app you prefer to use, you can!
Out of the box, having never connected to any smart phone, you can balance your phone (assuming it fits and balances, of course) and power on the Movi.
FiLMiC Pro (with whom we have no official affiliation) have integrated control of the their app (exposure, focus, Movi response/windows/axis locks) with the Movi hardware buttons.
We have tested a work-around for app/phone compatibility, for wanting to shoot with other modes than Majestic. If you have access to a second device from our Supported Device List, you can use it as a sort of controller for the Movi. This could also be used for complicated shots where you can benefit from having a second person help you control things like starting and stoping robot movements while you handle the physical operation.
Here is a setup we tried:
