Original MOZA Lite VS MOZA Lite 2 3-axis Gimbal Stabilizer

With the release of MOZA Lite 2 gimbal stabilizer at the NAB Show of this year, the original version MOZA Lite has been replaced. The price keeps the same as well as some accessories. The new version also comes with three different packages as before. So some users may wonder they are the same product? It is actually a new one
with changes in the gimbal design and stabilization performance.

The highlight is the payload that the MOZA Lite 2 can support camera and lens combination up to 11 pounds. It proved to work with some big cinema cameras like the RED Dragon and Canon C100. The original MOZA Lite could carry cameras and lens less than 4.8 pounds. It was limited to small-sized mirrorless and common DSLRs.

Another obvious difference lies in the stabilization performance. The new generation uses high quality motors with encoders embedded into each axis can provide precision control, thus allowing the camera to capture smooth footage with no shakes any more.

The original MOZA Lite comes with wireless video transmitter that allows the user to use a monitor for viewing on-going shots. While the new version deduct this unit. But high quality HD wireless video transmitter will come soon the next time it update.

Key features:
1.Lightweight and compact, weighing at only 2.2kg(4.8lbs)
2.It supports more with a max payload of 5.0kg (11lbs);
3.Better stabilization performance with advanced FOC algorithms and powerful motors with high resolution encoders;
4.Tool-free modular design for fast set-up and balance;
5.Flexible three operation modes: underslung, upright and briefcase;
6.Multifunctional wireless thumb controller provides remote control of the camera and the gimbal;
7.An intelligent battery with a 2800mAh capacity can work for 4~8 hours;
8.Compatible with a drone, tripod, crane and slider;

I've been in the market for a 3 axis gimbal myself. Id say the lite 2 might be my answer. Though it says it has a max payload of 4.0kg (8.8lbs) not the 5.0kg (11lbs) you said unless I'm looking at it wrong.

The page gets updated already. A max payload of 4.0kg was its original data when it released. But it proved to support much more heavier like the RED Dragon after testing several times.
