During CES 2019, Moza revealed Mini-S, a new compact, highly portable handheld 3-axis gimbal stabilizer designed for smartphones measuring 55mm to 88mm wide. The stabilizer can be extended up to 17.2in / 43.6cm and folded into a compact 5.12 x 2.68 x 7.68in / 13 x 6.8 x 19.5cm form-factor when not in use.
Though designed exclusively for smartphones, the Moza Mini-S packs several advanced features, including numerous physical controls, support for vertical and horizontal orientations, multiple follow modes, and object tracking.
The stabilizer’s base, which has a 10-degree tilt for ergonomic reasons, includes a 1/4-20″ port and a removable miniature tripod. Physical controls include a joystick, dedicated playback and Inception Mode buttons, focus control, one-button zoom, and a recording button. The internal 2200mAh battery provides 8 hours of use per charge.
The Mini-S stabilizer’s shooting modes include support for tracking objects, time-lapse, a Vertigo Mode zooming effect, and an Inception Mode that imitates the world rotation seen in the movie Inception. When paired with the Moza Genie mobile app, the phone displays a mixture of controls and camera settings for enhanced usability.
Pricing and availability haven’t been revealed yet, though News Shooter reports that Moza expects to start shipping in March.
