Filming upside down with Moza Air 2 - Temp Workaround

PostFri May 22, 2020 6:00 am

The adapter that I ordered to allow the bmpcc 6k to work with the moza air 2 gimbal hasn't arrived in time for my job tomorrow so I'm unable to balance the camera with my lighter wide angle lens. I discovered that I can mount the camera upside down on the gimbal and this leaves me plenty of space.

Couple questions:

1: Is there a setting within the camera to rotate the recorded footage so I don't need to flip 180 in post?

2: If I have to flip the footage in post will there be much quality loss during that process?

3: If I have to flip in post will it be way more taxing on my computer to edit the footage because of the additional flip on each clip?

Thanks for any suggestions!

Update: I found I could use the quick release plate from my fluid head on top of the moza plate to create the offset I needed to mount the bmpcc 6k on the moza air 2 ( right side up this time ) .

I also tested a bit in Resolve and it appeared that flipping in post was fast to work with; so that upside-down option could still work in a pinch.

Sorry, but this is nonsense.

I can balance this monster 100% excellent on a ronin-s
the hole gimbal has 6,6kg!
swapping batterie, or change the card with no problem,
but the pocket and follow focus is powerded by ronin.

and on a moza it's much easier.
