Real life test with the MOZA
Wanted to take the MOZA out for a real thing. The opportunity came on Sunday when we started filming a documentary with the Danish working title “Den blinde vinkel” (The blind angle).
The MOZA just performed. Awesome. Really short setup since the gimbal has been balanced and is still balanced when comming out of the case. We filmed with the Sony a7S and the Sony Zeiss 16-35 lens, since this combo has proved itself well. We get awesome picture quality and great autofocus which is nice on a gimbal. The wireless thumbcontroller has start/stop recording for the a7S and lets either the gimbal operator or a second person control pan and tilt of the gimbal.
Here is a short extract from the shoot…https://youtu.be/TkI5NBUqgdA

Hi Viktor, I'm Claus from Denmark. I have to say MOZA is promising. That's the reason why I talked much about it here. There is a MOZA user group on Facebook. You can follow and find more reliable reviews and videos.
Gimbal tuning stand
Since I bought my first gimbal I dreamt of having a little more flexible stand. This wish has come true now. The top of the MOZA Gimbal stand can be detached and be used on a regular (stable) stand.
Had to try this out today. The top detaches be unscrewing the big thumbscrew and taking it of. Very simple. I can then be mounted on a light stand like you see in the picture on the left. I really like this.
Monday the 16th 2015 was the DHL guy rang my doorbell and “forced” me to receive the a large heavy package from China. It was the MOZA:
I liked the MOZA gimbal from the moment I took it out of the case. I have a Came-7800, but this gimbal is in another league. The case is nice, the solid foam is laser cut to perfection and everything is packed neatly, with a few compartments for extra stuff.
After a really short setup the MOZA Gimbal looked like this. It was actually a matter of attaching the handle, the wireless monitor and the wireless thumb controller. More on these to later.
Attached a Sony a7S camera with the Sony Zeiss 16-35, and after a short balancing I was ready to try the MOZA gimbal out. Not a very cinematic or fancy video, but it really shows the strength of the MOZA. Much more stable than my Came-7800, even when walking down stairs to our back yard.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndZhsSKyGXw&feature=youtu.be
