 Most modern cameras can output decent video, but there’s a limit to how much stabilisation you can get from an in-camera or lens-based system. This can make a motorised camera gimbal an attractive option for anyone looking to improve their handheld video shooting capability. And while in the past these were big, heavy and ludicrously expensive, the move towards smaller, lighter cameras has seen a shift in gimbal design.

The Moza Air 2 from Gudsen is a three-axis stabiliser aimed at DSLR and mirrorless camera users. It has a payload of up to 4.2kg, and its four rechargeable batteries supply enough power for up to 16 hours of use on a single charge.
