Moza Mini-Mi

Gudsen’s Moza Mini-Mi is the world’s first smartphone gimbal with built-in wireless phone charging, and it can be purchased for only $109. We Talk UAV received a review unit about two months ago, but app connection problems with both iOS and Android devices resulted in a delayed review. The gimbal was still tested by itself, and it proved to be capable of filming cinematic mobile footage, even without Bluetooth or an app connection. When We Talk UAV created a review video, the Samsung S9 had trouble connecting to the app, but the gimbal still did its job and stabilized the phone:

Specs

At 543 grams, the Moza Mini-Mi weighed in 58 grams heavier than the DJI Osmo Mobile 2, but it has unique features that make it stand out. Gudsen’s gimbal has four camera accessory mounts installed into the gimbal, so users can use LED lights, microphones or any accessory that fits into the ¼ mounts. The gimbal’s max payload is rated at 300 grams, and it has Bluetooth 4.0. Moza Mini-Mi has a 2100mAh battery that is designed to stabilize a smartphone for up to 10 hours, and it only takes about three and a half hours to recharge the gimbal.

Review

When a Samsung S9 was used on the Moza Mini-MI, the phone was placed slightly off to the side so that it didn’t show part of the gimbal in the shot. The joystick was easy to navigate with, but We Talk UAV felt like the Moza Mini-MI could have used a trigger on the back of the gimbal.

Since there is no trigger installed on the gimbal, multiple button clicks are designed to initiate locks and other functions. For example, two left clicks on the scroll wheel locks the yaw, so users are required to memorize what click combinations do to the gimbal.

We Talk UAV used 13 different click combinations to to access or disable various gimbal functions.

When the top button was pressed three times, the gimbal initiated an Inception style motion, allowing rotating footage to be recorded.
