An aluminum-made follow-up to the original Slypod, the Moza Slypod E is a motorized monopod designed to be mounted horizontally or vertically. It's very compact at 1.9", and it telescopes out a travel distance of 11". Via onboard buttons, 10 different motion speeds can be selected, from an ultra-slow speed of just 0.15mm per second to the maximum speed of 1.1" per second. In the companion iOS/Android app, 100 different speeds can be selected within this range. The motor is near-silent at the slowest speeds. In the app, you can also set up assigned travel routes, time-lapse capture, and much more.
Since the Slypod E can be mounted on a tripod horizontally or vertically, it can be set up to perform motorized dolly, track, and boom shots. It has a safety payload of 9 lb horizontally and 20 lb vertically. A mounting plate is built-in along its length with 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting threads, and that's how the Slypod E attaches to tripods horizontally. A 1/4"-20 threaded hole provided on the bottom allows for vertical mounting.
The Slypod E is powered by an internal battery that runs for approximately two hours and is recharged in about three hours. It's rechargeable via a USB Type-C port using an included cable. An LED ring on the bottom lights up different colors to confirm battery status.
An adapter is included for attaching a camera on the end. However, you can also mount a handheld gimbal onto this adapter in order to combine the pan/tilt/roll motion of the gimbal with the motorized motion of the Slypod E.
The companion app is iOS and Android compatible, but currently the Samsung Galaxy S10 and select other Samsung and LG phones are not supported. Moza says an update is in the works.
