Gudsen’s Moza AirCross gimbal can provide both stabilization and power
Gudsen has launched a new gimbal that’s aimed at mirrorless photographers. With a payload of 3.9lbs/1.8kg, the new Moza AirCross can provide stabilization to a mirrorless body even when it's fitted with a cinema lens, and a new in-handle option can provide power to Sony and Panasonic cameras while they're shooting.
The Moza AirCross offers a more lightweight alternative to the Moza Air—which is aimed at compact system cameras and small DSLR users. It also has a number of newer features, including a claimed 12-hour battery life, and the ability to accept power from an external power bank.
The handle holds three 2000mAh batteries that can run the gimbal all day, or be used to power a range of compatible Sony and Panasonic cameras via a dummy battery pack that fits inside the camera. As the gimbal can also take power from a portable power bank, Gudsen claims that users need never run out of juice.
Another new feature is a quick release system that is compatible with both Manfrotto 501PL and Arca type quick release plates. The system allows users to remove a camera from the gimbal head and refit it later without having to rebalance the whole rig. Auto-tuning via the Moza app ensures the gimbal remains balanced for the weight and distribution of the attached equipment, and the gyroscopes are said to offer calibration-free IMU technology.
Gudsen has also added roll-follow to yaw-follow and yaw-pitch-follow to the range of movements on offer, and users can expect to be able to tilt between -175° and +135°, and achieve 360° of yaw and roll.
The gimbal itself weighs 896g and 1/4in threaded ports allow accessories, microphones and monitors to be mounted on the handle. The AirCross can produce move-stop-shoot-move long-exposure timelapse sequences with a fully programmable path via the Gudsen app, and the accessory thumb-controller provides wireless mimic-movements when mounted on the optional handle-bars.
Certain Sony and Panasonic models can have stop/start recording controlled via the main handle, while some Canon DSLR models can have their focus controlled too. Gudsen has promised that firmware updates in the future will add aperture control to the AirCross.
The Gudsen Moza AirCross is on sale now for $420 at the Gudsen website.
