Cameras & Photo Accessories

Speaking of handheld stabilizers, I believe that everyone is familiar with the current popular handheld stabilizer brands on the market, including Zhiyun, Dajiang, Snoppa, Feiyu, MOZA, etc. The new product from MOZA, MOZA mini-s handheld stabilizer, before I introduce the product, the author first let everyone know what is the handheld stabilizer, handheld stabilizer as the name suggests is to use with the phone, make the picture more stable when shooting At the same time, there are many stabilizer functions, and the angle can be adjusted automatically. There are a variety of shooting modes and modes to choose from, which greatly improves the shooting efficiency.

So why should I choose a hand-held stabilizer? Because I recently used a mobile phone to send a documentary to my daughter who just turned 2 years old (when the 18-year-old gift was given to her daughter), in order to extend the shooting angle, a regular self-timer was used. Rod, to act as a stabilizer (baby heart, oh…..) but there are many changes in the shooting process, such as video focus, face recognition, shooting direction adjustment, parameter adjustment are more troublesome, let the author It is also painful to live, but fortunately there are MOZA mini-s handheld stabilizer to help the author solve the trouble.

First, product packaging

When I first saw the MOZA mini-s handheld stabilizer, I saw that the product was a product worthy of the product through the product box. It is also a portable product, but the MOZA mini-s is the main product. Portable, this is marked from the front and back of the box, and also marked the product’s related functions and related parameter information are very comprehensive.

From the main point of the product, MOZA mini-s has eight main features:

Charging cable, instruction manual, logo sticker, novice guide, portable bundle pocket.

Second, the appearance details

MOZA mini-s handheld stabilizer is also MOZA’s first stabilizer with folding function. Compared with the current mainstream stabilizers, the function of the product is much more novel. This is also a revolutionary change of the stabilizer, so that the stabilizer is not simplified. By folding the storage, you can carry it with you. When you travel, you want to shoot. In fact, some friends may pay more attention to the brand, but I personally think that the quality of the product depends on whether the essence of the product can satisfy the consumer and whether it can attract consumers. It is the key.

When it comes to folding, it is necessary to talk about a lock and open buckle on the MOZA mini-s body. By pushing this buckle, it can function as a stabilizer and a folding stabilizer. In actual operation, Just follow the instructions to open the icon operation. The MOZA mini-s is expanded to 11695317mm in size and 13068195mm in folding. It can be used when it is opened, but here is a point to expand. The steps of the stabilizer and the storage stabilizer are exactly the opposite, so pay attention to the actual use.

  1. Open the stabilizer body by the toggle rotation.
  2. Rotate the phone clip from the right side.

Since it is a hand-held stabilizer, what is the design of the handle on the handle? You can see that the handle of the MOZA mini-s is quite good and comfortable. The model is also printed on the handle, but here To spit it out, although the feel is good, but always feel a little cheap, compared to the plastic material, the overall is not upscale.

The function keys and joystick of MOZA mini-s are designed on the front of the fuselage. It can be seen that the whole button area is also very rich, and the design is also reasonable. There are direction rocker button, function button and battery indicator area.

Directional rocker button: 360° rotation can be used to control the direction of the phone lens.

Function keys: click in the middle to start/stop recording; double-click: photo mode, up key to click, open menu; double click, switch photo/photography, long press, switch front and rear camera; left button, click, open/close Rolling to follow; right click, click, quick look back, double click, time-lapse photography, long press, increase the time-lapse photography record point; down button, double-click, speed follow, three-click, stealing dream space.

The battery indicator area shows the current battery level and charge status.

On the right side of the fuselage, there are two buttons. The two buttons function as zoom buttons, T is for zooming in, and W is for zooming in. The feel of the buttons is not bad, not particularly blunt.

The switch button of MOZA mini-s is designed on the left side, the power button/sleep wake-up on the top, and the red design is more obvious. This is more obvious, the identification is high, and the charging interface of the product is below. It is worth mentioning that MOZAmini The -s charging interface uses the Type-C interface. The advantage of this interface is that it is fast charging and high efficiency.

Compared to the previous generation of MOZA handheld stabilizers, this MOZA mini-s has added a new smart trigger button, its function is mainly to quickly switch between functions, this button is like the board machine on the game controller. Is a principle, in general, this smart board machine button feels or feedback is very ideal.

The original design of the clip on the stabilizer is to be able to clamp the mobile phone, and at the same time to ensure that the mobile phone clip is more stable and does not hurt the mobile phone. From the perspective of the mobile phone clip of the product, the design of the clip is relatively stable, and a clip can be The phone is flattened and the phone is also well protected.

MOZA mini-s mobile phone holder, support large-screen mobile phone clamping, can support 260g load-bearing on the load-bearing, the internal use of high-magnetic energy product permanent magnet motor, load-bearing more comfortable, the author’s mobile phone is 5.8-inch iPhone X can Very good grip, very stable.

MOZA Elf’s app, overall, the interactive interface is very good, very simple and easy to understand, and has many functions. You can control the functions in the app by directly touching the screen of the mobile phone or by pressing the physical buttons on the stabilizer. It is still relatively convenient. Relatively speaking, the operation after Bluetooth connection is more simple.

Four or six models

As a handheld stabilizer, I believe that the experience in use is the most real, I think everyone is most eager to know, MOZA mini-s built six models, you can use different methods to achieve different Mode, let you play more when shooting and using, and in terms of the overall experience, each of the six modes can make your stabilizer achieve different stability effects.
