To shoot good 3D movie, you need a steady horizon and a very stable camera. Thait is when Movi comes into play to help the steadicam operator. 

Reddit popularized the Movi gimbal stabilizer last year. This magic $15k device provides incredibly fast and accurate camera stabilization; check for your self the MOVI video here under.

Most interestingly, it is possible to find now a DYS brushless gimbal kit for $400 and to use it to support a couple of GoPRO cameras for handheld immersive stereoscopic video capture.
