Moza Air 2, Cool as a stabilizer, which I would not have bought

Moza Air 2 is otvetochka for Zhiyun Crane 2 and DJI Rоnin S. Because the new 3 oseva electronic stabilizer of Moza not just greatly increased in functionality, in comparison with the first version, it can offer such features and characteristics which simply does not have the above gimbaled.

To buy Moza Air 2 or any other stabilizer, as well as accessories for them from our friends the online store MotoStuff.com.ua.

Traditionally let’s start with the configuration of the stabilizer. In principle, it’s nothing special, more or less standard. Now the stab is not in the shock-resistant case, and in the usual cardboard box. It’s certainly not very pleasant news, but in this box also can be transported gimbal to the shooting. Inside, in addition to staba, you can find a new tripod that is better quality than the one that came with the first model. Also there is a spare pad, 4 battery, which should be enough for 16 hours of shooting, different dies and extenders for mounting accessories and a small case with wires to connect cameras and charging, and even with all sorts of small screws, nuts and keys.

What has changed compared to the first version of Moza Air? First, the stub has become much bigger and heavier, the weight of gimbal is 1.6 kg. did not casual, all because the Air 2 can stabilize the camera with lens and other accessories weighing up to 4.6 kg. let me Remind you that the first Air could make the weight of 2.5 kg, which is significantly less. Also changed the design of the axis of panning. Now it is not perpendicular to the horizon, and under 45º. This opens the view screen of the camera, and shoot becomes much easier, especially if your camera is not swivel screen. By the way this axis is lock, which will allow and faster to set stabilizer before shooting, and it is more convenient to transport. I just do not understand why you can lock only one axle. For example, in the new Zhiyun Weebill Lab you can lock each axis separately and I think it’s more convenient. But here this is not possible.

Platform camera now not just quick, it is double. That is, there is the main site of which is attached to the stabilizer and the second standard Manfrotto, which is directly attached to the camera and she’s already placed on top. The first site you can freely move back and forth for calibration stab, but the second is held in the bracket still. This further accelerates the process of shooting, if you need to remove the camera from the stabilizer and put it on a tripod/monopod or Vice versa. And don’t forget there is still a spare area.

Also added a few new controls. For example, a ring to control focus, like the Crane 2. But not only one focus can be set with this ring. You can control the axis of the Roll. How is it possible to use, for example, you can quickly level the horizon in the camera during shooting, or to remove the posting with the blockage of the horizon, which is now very popular.

In Air 2 display. This is convenient because do not need to install the app to your smartphone or to connect the stub to the computer to change some settings. Everything can be done very quickly and efficiently really stabe.

The joystick to control turns gimbal, as you can see, now sticking out of the hull and not recessed in it. He is sensitive to the degree of depression, so you can do smooth turns and sharp. Still it is possible to push. A single press disables or enables the axis of the pan. double Roll axis, and triple axis Tilt.

Below are all more or less standard. There is navipad for menu navigation. On the left is the mode button, on the right is another function key, clicking on it once the stub goes into sport mode and the axis of panning tracks all movements very quickly. It is perfect for shooting cars or sports where you need to quickly track moving objects. Click twice and the mode “Inception”. It is possible to twist the camera 360 degrees and get unusual results. And if you hold this button, turn on avtomalinovka, it helps to automatically choose the engine power based on the weight of the camera. It’s cool, because you don’t need to go into the menu and change settings if you’ve changed the optics or took some kind of accessory. Or maybe you do not know what is the weight of your camera and find it difficult to choose the correct mode staba, avtomalinovka will do it for you.

Under the index finger is the trigger, if his hold – blocks all axis. Double-clicking the stub returns to its original position, and the triple translates into a mode of “Selfie”. Just above this trigger is a universal connector ⅜ inch, it is possible to hang some accessories, such as a display, light, MIC or something else. And using the adapter that comes in the kit, this connector becomes a standard ¼ inch.

Arm changed its shape, now it is not round, but such is ergonomic, more like a pistol or machine gun, DJI Rоnin’s the same. And which is convenient to replace the accum, now you don’t need to Unscrew the handle fully, push the bottom and we will have access to the batteries.

As such modes of operation here. Each axis can be configured separately. To turn on or off, select the sensitivity or dead angle all this is configured separately. Then these settings can be saved into profiles. This allows you to customize the modes of operation is very flexible by itself. Here, too, it is possible to change the camera position by hand. But it works only when a certain axis is locked. And now the little hack, not to get into the menu and disable the axis when you want to spin it manually, you can just hold down the trigger, rotate the camera where you want and then let go, and all the axis will be active and ready to work.

If you watched my reviews of the previous stabilizers from Moza, you know that I really liked, at least more stubs Zhyiun. And Air 2 is also a very cool device, but I would imagine it did not take! Just because you don’t need superfunctional stab. Even for our purposes and who does not know we have as many as 4 YouTube channel and the video we shoot each day, with different complexity from shooting cars to phones and cameras, even us such a stab would be overkill. This device has grown in comparison with the predecessor. Air 2 – the stabilizer a higher level, designed for more serious problems more serious cameras. So if you choose gimbal for taking Amateur pictures: on vacation or just like to shoot a video for myself as a hobby, then forget about stubs. Seriously you do not need it and it’s not worth it. To carry it with you to configure, and they are not cheap. Learn to shoot smoothly include all of the stabilizers that is in your camera and it will be much better.

If you shoot more or less professionally and earn money from it, you have a small mirrorless Sony or Panasonic – take the stab smaller. Really, if you buy this in 2-3 shots will understand that it is not convenient, it’s hard to send it over and you will curse the day it was bought. Take the first Air or even AirCross, they are smaller, lighter, cheaper and will definitely fit your camera. This stub should only buy if you are a serious filmmaker, you shoot videos, commercials, maybe even movies. You have a big camera with cine lenses, additional accessories and you know that you need a super professional tool for stabilization. Then, Yes, Air 2 you can take. And if you think that professionals only shoot on the DJI Ronin, then think again because Moza Air 2 in anything is not inferior to him, and maybe even better. At least the fact that it is cheaper and there’s a built in screen.
