Gudsen released new firmware update V0.4.13 for the MOZA Air 2 gimbal. Apart from fixing few minor bugs, it adds more functions for Nikon, Canon, and Sony cameras and improves camera capability. The free firmware update is available for download now.
MOZA Air 2 is a very capable one-handed gimbal capable to carry payloads between 0.3kg (0.7lbs) and 4.2kg (9.3 lbs). Gudsen released this gimbal in October 2018 to stand up against the DJI Ronin-S and other fierce competitors.
What’s not to like about regular firmware updates? By releasing them, companies show that they actually care about their customers and they want to fix possible bugs and improve the performance of their existing products. Free firmware updates are even better, but they have to be properly tested prior to release to ensure proper functioning and stability.
The new firmware V0.4.13 for MOZA Air 2 was released on March 25th, 2019 and it brings improved camera capability and adds more functions for Nikon, Canon, and Sony cameras. It also fixes some minor bugs.
Here is a full list of improvements:
- Added electronic focus support for Nikon D850, Z6, and Z7 with supported Nikkor lenses. Electronic focus control can be used with USM 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.
- Added adaptive speed adjustment support for Nikon D850, Z6 and Z7. The faster the wheel is turned, the faster the focusing speed will be. Sensitivity parameters of the focus wheel can be adjusted.
- Added aperture, shutter and ISO adjustment support for Nikon D850, Z6 and Z7.
- Added photo taking, video recording and parameter adjustment support like aperture, shutter and ISO for Canon EOS R.
- Added live view switch support for Nikon D850.
- Added increment parameter adjustment support and more comprehensive control range for Canon and Nikon cameras. For Canon – Full range adjustment of EV increment options 1/3, 1/2 and ISO options 1/3, 1. For Nikon – Full range adjustment of EV increment options 1/3, 1/2, 1 and ISO options 1/3, 1/2, 1.
- Added autofocus support in video recording for Canon, Sony and Nikon cameras. Single press of the trigger will start autofocus support. Lens needs to be switched to AF mode when using the autofocus feature.
