The Moza Slypod is an innovative motorised 2-in-1 slider and monopod. It can be mounted horizontally on a tripod via a built-in mounting plate, or vertically on a mini tripod or other support and it provides 28cm of telescoping motorised travel distance in either r mode. By using the iOS/Android app, the telescoping movement can be set up in assigned travel routes or repeatable movements, at speeds from an ultra-slow minimum of 0.15mm per second to up to 28mm per second. In horizontal (slider) mode, the rated (safety) payload is 4KG and the max 10KG and in vertical (monopod) mode, the rated is 9KG and max 18KG. The built-in geared motor and algorithms provide smooth, steady and quiet movement for anything from an action cam or smartphone up to most cinema cameras.
For attaching a camera, there's a ¼"-20 mounting screw on the end. A quick release pan-and-tilt accessory is included that secures to this end and allows you to set your camera facing in just about any direction. Alternatively, you can mount a ball head, fluid head or other support. Another option is a gimbal stabiliser. By attaching a gimbal, it adds a motorised pan and tilt axes to the motorised slides.
The Slypod is designed with a built-in battery with up to two-hour runtime. A great feature of the Slypod is that the battery can be charged while the Slypod is in use, so you're able to shoot continuously for time-lapse capture, vlogs, live streams and other applications, especially considering the super-slow minimum travel speed of 0.15mm per second. The battery is charged via a USB charging port that can also be used to integrate other Moza products, for actions such as camera shutter control.
Other than mobile app control, the Slypod can be partially operated via onboard +/- control buttons or an optional wireless remote control. The motor, batter, power button, +/- controls and USB port are all built-in/located on the bottom end of the Slypod. There's also an illuminating ring in that section that lights up different colours to indicate the battery status. Red, for example, means the Slypod is charging.
The built-in mounting plate for slider mode offers ¼"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting threads. For vertical mouthing, a ¼"-20 threaded hole is provided on the bottom when the included wooden handle is removed. A mini tripod is supplied for mounting the Slypod in monopod mode.
The Slypod has a weather proofed design that provides resistance to wind, sand and dust. When fully collapsed, it measures 53cm. When it is fully extended and with the wooden handle attached on the bottom and the quick release pan-and-tilt accessory on top, it measures 96.5cm from end to end. The Slypod is mainly made of carbon fibre and it weighs just 770g.
