Moza Mini-Mi Real Review

While other gimbals stabilize your phone, this one does more than just steady shots.

13 July 2018 3pm. The parcel arrived. It 's the Moza Mini-MI.

What's a Moza Mini-Mi?

The Moza Mini-Mi is a 3-axis smartphone gimbal stabilizer.


What can it do that other gimbals don't?

1. It has 8 operating modes
2. Ability to detect multiple subjects
3. Perform 360-degree rotation inception effect
4. Wireless phone charging
5. Priced lower than others.

Who is Moza? Where is it from?

Moza is the name given to the range of gimbals manufactured by a Chinese company called Gudsen Technology. They have been around for over 3 years in the professional video production industry.

Do you recommend it?

What is the difference between the Zhiyun Smooth 4 and the Moza Mini-MI?
What is the difference between the Smove Mobile and the Moza Mini-Mi?
Can you show me all the tricks it can do?
Can it work on the Android phone?
What accessories must I get?

Let's go out and test this cool gadget to find out. 

Where can I buy it?


Phone mounting
Balance adjustment
Starting up
Battery level
Yaw, Pitch, and Roll
Follow modes.

What I Don't Like

It doesn't make a sound to confirm that a button is pressed.
There is no indicator light to tell me I am in Roll Follow mode.
I must remember to triple press the left handwheel button to activate the pitch follow.

Compare this with Smove Mobile and ZhiYun Smooth 4

Pitch Follow Mode. I must remember to triple press the left handwheel button to activate the pitch follow. Pitch-follow is the tilt of the camera and it's a frequently used function. On the Smove Mobiel I just intuitively press the trigger button. Anyway, you also need to memorize it on the ZhiYun Smooth 4.

Phone Charging Port. The phone charging port is a full-size USB port (vs Smove Mobile and Zhiyun Smooth 4). So cable is not a problem. No need for adaptors.



2 ways: Mechanical vs automatic.


Also 2 ways: Main camera vs selfie camera

The original "idea" journal posted on Aril 28, 2015. I have a request to shoot a corporate internal talk and stream it to a live audience in seven different countries.

First 3 things that came to mind is...

1. Video conferencing system.
2. Google+ Hangouts On Air with YouTube Live.
3. Other Streaming services like Ustream.

Video conferencing system is out as that would require a whole set of dedicated equipment.

All I have at this point is.


MacBook Pro Built-in Internal Microphone Location

Where is the built-in internal microphone on the MacBook Pro Retina 15?
There's two of them and both are situated inside the left speaker vent.

The dual built-in microphones are designed tor educe background noise from behind the notebook. The also create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice — instead of the noise around you.
