Moza 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer with built in wireless video and thumb controller
Here’s another gimbal device for you: the Moza is an affordable 3-axis stabilizer, with a built in wireless transmitter and thumb controller for the gimbal. It weighs in at 2.5kg (5.5 lbs) with a maximum payload of 4.5kg (9.9 lbs).
In terms of weight versus maximum payload, the Moza sniffs around the DJI Ronin and MoVi M10. Weighing 2.5kg (5.5 lbs) it sits between the two, a good 2kgs lighter than the Ronin, but a kilo on the M10. Payload is lower than both at 4.5kg (9.9 lbs) but still offers support for a healthy C300 sized rig.
The orientation of gimbal is controllable by a wireless remote with joystick, this is positioned strategically on the cross bar for thumb access. The remote also has the ability to enable start stop recording and adjust focus. In the above video it does this with a Canon DSLR via USB.
Moza developers boast of the hidden wired design, not only for the battery and remote control but for video transmission too. On the camera side you can connect to the Moza via HDMI, which transmits via a 5.8 G 200mW B-band Wireless Video Transmitter that is said to be good for up to 50M.
Battery life is good for 2-3 hours (depending on which spec sheet you read) and the whole kit ships with a hard case as standard.
At just over $2,200 the Moza offers a fair package for the price, entering a useful weight bracket that outgrows DSLRs and is comfortable with camcorders.
