Strong, lightweight & secure     

The SmartCine rig keeps your phone safe, and your focus on the action. A double-locking mechanism ensures a secure grip your phone - no matter how you need to move to get your shot.

The rubberized, non-slip grip makes sure you have a good hold on the scene - even in wet or slippery conditions.

Bright, adjustable & long-lived

The SmartCine's integrated light ring gives you warm, full illumination with just the flick of a finger. Three selectable settings and 36 LEDs give you bright-but-soft illumination perfect for highlighting your eyes and lighting up the scene. 

No batteries necessary - recharge anywhere through the handy micro USB port. Get up to 4 hours of light out of one charge!

Exciting, fun & functional  

Defeat boring shots and constricted fields of view. The SmartCine includes two specialized, wide-angle lenses that will let you break out of the box!     

The powerful Fisheye lens gives you the horizon-bending power of a super wide-angle lens. Capture the entire scene - whether you're at a concert, or covering an event on the street. 

The handy 0.65x Wide Angle lens is the perfect lens for daily use. It gives you a broad field of coverage perfect for vlogging or selfies, with a minimum of distortion around the edges.

Clear, flexible & powerful

An epic video can only be so epic when you're stuck with the muffled, distorted audio from your built-in phone microphone.  

The SmartCine comes in two versions:

 Stereo Microphone - a stereo, X/Y condenser mic. 

  • The perfect upgrade your phone's built-in omnidirectional mic. 

Wireless Microphone - a wireless, lavalier microphone. 

  • Capture one speaker with crystal-clarity, even from far away.

In either case, you'll capture improved sound with no extra accessories necessary. Just plug into your phones audio jack and go!   

The two professional features are included on both models- a High-Pass filter and +10 dB signal booster - give you advanced levels of control over your audio, ensuring you're ready to record in any environment.

Who We Are

Material choices, quality standards, and innovative designs have aligned Sevenoak and MOVO Photo for a strategic partnership that aims to provide high-quality and innovative video and audio equipment to customers all over the world.

Sevenoak, a professional imaging equipment manufacturer and the strategic manufacturing partner for MOVO products, specializes in developing high-quality and affordable camera rigs, stabilizers, microphones, and more.

At MOVO Photo we are not only passionate about providing innovative video and audio equipment, but also about “smart pricing” - offering you the lowest costs bundled with the best products.

SmartCine is one of the newest members to our “smart pricing” family - enabling superior video production using your smartphones.  

However, our mission does not stop there. We are motivated to give back to a variety of nonprofit organizations by donating MOVO equipment, so that we can aid them in sharing their stories. Part of your contribution in backing our SmartCine Kickstarter campaign will benefit the various nonprofit organizations that MOVO supports.

This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 500+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $235MM raised between them.

Risks and challenges

As with any hardware projects, there is always a potential risks in shipment delays due to supply chain issues. We are working with a qualified vendor to prevent supply shortage or manufacturing downtime. Since we have already conducted some small batch test production, we don’t foresee any delays in production.

The manufacturer we are working with has extensive experience in the production of microphones and video handles, and has helped us develop similar products in the past - including our previous Kickstarter project in 2017. We are confident that we will achieve the milestones currently set forth in the project timeline and expect all our backers to receive their rewards on time.
