Sliders and monopods, what do they have in common? Absolutely nothing. Until now… In fact, they’re kind of meant for the opposite things, but the folks over at Moza have a really clever take on this, and they joined the two together. Now, we have the Slypod Pro, a brand-new slider/monopod combo that packs a serious list of things it can do.
Gudsen has announced the new Moza Mini-MX gimbal. Designed for smartphones, it’ll let you shoot horizontally for something a little more cinematic but also vertically for your Instagram Stories, TikTok and other social media platforms. It’s also a folding gimbal that actually folds small enough that you can slip it into your pocket.
It features what Gudsen calls their “Deep Red” anti-shake algorithm to help handle extreme movements while walking and running. It features subject tracking (including autofocus) and a number of different shooting modes. But probably its most useful feature is that it actually works as a standard Bluetooth trigger to start/stop recording, which means you don’t need to use a dedicated app!
So far in this year’s DIYP gift guides, we’ve covered cameras, lenses, lights and bags. But whether you shoot stills or video, at some point you’ll likely need something to mount your camera to. So here are some of the new ones that have come out over the last year or so and the ones that we use the most.
