Camera Gimbal shootout - Moza Air vs Feiyu a2000 vs Zhiyun Crane v2 - thumbnail

Gimbal Shootout: Moza Air – Feiyu-Tech a2000 – Zhiyun-Tech Crane v2

The last few weeks I’ve been busy testing out different gimbals. These are all gimbals that are small, light, pistol grip-style that you can operate with one hand. They are very similar in some ways, yet different in others. The three gimbals I compare are Zhiyun-Tech Crane v2, FeiyuTech a2000 and the Moza Air. Here is an overview of each one, and what I think of them.

  1. 1.Feiyu a2000 using time on manual is 10h,but it can use actually for 12h. They just give some time space for some user who did not balance the gimbal very well. how can you say 8h only?
    2. The cable can for taking photo and also can for video, can you study our gimbal?
    3. The dual handle has all function button, it is not only a dual handle, also can control the gimbal very well, the user need not any remote. And also with many 1/4 thread mount on the dual handle, user can put the gimbal on any tripod very easy, also also can put on the table easily.
    4.Feiyu a2000 auto-rotating function,which is unique comparing with other gimbal, and also auto shooting function.
    5. Easy initiation and APP setting up the firmware function, you even did not mention it .
