Moza Air 2 gimbal review
The MOZA Air 2 and Canon C100 Mark II

I reviewed the MOZA Air 2 recently and I found that it performed well at doing its primary function of creating smooth, stable, and usable shots. I personally did find the menu system and switching between modes on the actual gimbal itself a little bit counter-intuitive, but in saying that, it is very easy to change these settings if you use the App. I’m not a big fan of using heavy gimbals if you are just running smaller DSLR or mirrorless cameras, but that applies to the Ronin-S , Zhiyun Crane 3 Lab, as well as the Moza Air 2.

What I liked about the Moza Air 2, is despite the fact that it lacks some of the bells and whistles found only other gimbals, it gets the job done. Yes, it is nice to have lots of extra features, but you shouldn’t always be blinded by the marketing pizazz. If you are primarily looking for a gimbal that just goes about its business and gets the job done of creating nice stable shots, the Moza Air 2 does exactly that.

Detailed Firmware Notes

Electronic focus control

  • Support electronic focus control of USM lenses and STM lenses.
  • For some STM lenses, the wheel focus control will occasionally stutter, which can be alleviated by setting the wheel sensitivity or using an external follow focus.

Speed adaptive adjustment

  • Support electronic focus control of USM lenses and STM lenses.
  • For some STM lenses, the wheel focus control will occasionally stutter, which can be alleviated by setting the wheel sensitivity or using an external follow focus.

Increment parameter adjustment

  • Support electronic focus control of USM lenses and STM lenses.
  • For some STM lenses, the wheel focus control will occasionally stutter, which can be alleviated by setting the wheel sensitivity or using an external follow focus.

Speed adaptive adjustment

  • There’re three speed settings with camera electronic focus: fast, medium and slow; which usually needs to be set manually.
  • New firmware V0.4.13 added adaptive speed adjustment support. The faster the wheel is turned, the faster the focusing speed will be, making the speed set smarter and faster.
  • If the focus wheel is insensitive or oversensitive, adjust its sensitivity parameters.

How to set (take ISO as an example):

  • Increment parameter adjustment
  • Canon: Full range adjustment of EV increment options 1/3, 1/2 and ISO options 1/3, 1.
  • Nikon: Full range adjustment of EV increment options1/3, 1/2, 1 and ISO options 1/3, 1/2, 1.
  • How to set (take ISO as an example):
  • When the increment is 1 (1 time increase): 100, 200…
  • When the increment is 1/2 (1/2 times increase): 100, 150, 200…
  • When the increment is 1/3 (1/3 times increase): 100, 125, 160, 200…
  • Note: Different camera models have different parameters, which are subject to the camera used.

More comprehensive parameter control range

  • The aperture adjustment range is F22 to F1.2 (the max aperture is subject to the lens used).
  • The ISO adjustment range is 32 to 204800 (the specific range depends on the camera used).

Autofocus

  • Single press the trigger to start autofocus support.
  • Please switch the lens to AF mode when using the autofocus feature.
