Chinese stabilization brand Gudsen has announced a new addition to its Moza range of powered gimbals that’s aimed at users of compact system cameras and small-to-medium sized DSLRs. The Moza Air can carry a maximum payload of 5.5lbs and offers powered 3-axis stabilization as well as remote control features. Gudsen claims it is ‘the smartest camera stabilization and control system for mirrorless cameras and DSLRs.’
The handheld device uses a single joystick on its handle for the photographer to control the direction the camera will face and the modes the gimbal operates in, while a smartphone app allows the same controls to be applied from a distance of 10m. The app also allows users to program motion-orientated time-lapse sequences with the head turning or tilting by increments to match the shooting settings of the camera. An optional thumb controller is also available that additionally provides start/stop functions for some camera models. Having an app and a thumb controller means that the system can be carried by one person while another controls the direction of the camera.
The Gudsen Moza Air costs $599. For more information and to read the full spec of the device visit the Gudsen website.
