I’m still exploring the capabilities of the Moza AirCross gimbal, when it comes to timelapse. It’s a quite cheap video stabilization solution with really nice and powerful timelapse features. You can preorder it currently at Gudsen website. Very soon I’ll be releasing full review of this gimbal. If you don’t want to miss that, enable notification by hitting the little red bell in bottom left corner 😉 Here’s one shot I made for the review. Check it out and read some details below.
This shot is made with a Moza Aircross gimbal mounted to the tripod with Sony A6300 and Sigma 10-20mm lens. The gimbal is able to do move-shoot-move timelapse shots, so I could use a 2 second shutter speed to get the light trails of the cars. The other feature I use here is ability to set complicated paths with up to 8 keyframes. I love to have that option, so I’m not limited to just straigth paths. In this shot, I could follow the road with a camera, change the speed of the camera movement and at the and move up the camera to reveal the theater building. Of course, most of the timelapses are straigth paths, however with 8 keyframes, you can get really creative (it doesn’t mean you should always complicate your shot ;)).
The shot is slightly zoomed-in in post, and at the end I zoomed out for the theatre building. To smooth out the path I used a slight Warp Stabilizer here, but for sure I’ll be talking to Moza to implement same path smoothing in the software 😉
That’s all for today. Soon I’ll be releasing some interesting stuff, like the Moza Aircross review, the last shot from 52 Timelapse Project, the project summary and reel! So, stay tuned 😉 For now, I’d like to thank you for beeing with me this year and wish you all guys Merry Christmas!
