Lighter and faster, the Moza Slypod Pro motorized monopod is even easier to carry around than its predecessors, allowing you to create smooth gliding camera moves up to 20" long without needing a dolly or slider. It is available initially as a Master Kit, which includes a mini-tripod and manual pan/tilt head that together allow you to create stand-alone vertical camera moves while precisely setting your pan and tilt angle.
The Slypod Pro is made from strong yet lightweight carbon fiber, allowing you to create horizontal sliding moves with your mirrorless or DSLR camera weighing up to 7.72 pounds. In the vertical position, the monopod can support cameras weighing more than 13 pounds, at speeds ranging from an agonizingly slow and dramatic 0.02"/s up to a snappy 1.57"/s. The Slypod Pro is designed for the outdoors featuring a weatherproof exterior that makes it wind, dust, and sand resistant, with an internal lithium-ion battery that can run it continuously for 90 minutes.
Movement is controllable locally from buttons on the monopod, but as the monopod supports 2.4GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, you can easily control it from your smart device using the downloadable app. The app provides a visual interface to work from, allowing you to adjust the speed and moves merely by touching your device’s screen. The app also allows you to program moves with multiple positions and adjustments, as well as set time-lapse moves from simple to complex, and trigger your camera to take frames with optional camera connection cables. A ¼"-20 threaded hole enables vertical mounting on your tripod, and on the side of the monopod an integrated Arca-Swiss plate with ¼"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded mounting holes provides you a variety of mounting options for mounting it on a tripod head.
