What I like about the Moza Slypod

I like that this is a completely new product. I haven't seen anything like it.

It's great for quick and dirty timelapse mission where you can't bring or don't want to bring a ton of gear.

It's simple to set up and doesn't take a lot of space in your bag.

What I don't like about the Moza Slypod

The slypod is too short to be a proper monopod. Fully extended it barely comes up to my chest (I'm 174 cm tall for reference)

If you'd like to use it a slider then you only have a single mounting point which means your balance is going to be an issue.

You need a very strong tripod to be able to carry the weight of the whole rig on one mounting point.

When using it as a vertical slider it gets really wobbly, and you need a completely flat base to put it on. Not ideal.

How I would change the Moza Slypod

I would drop the price, extend the total length of the unit, add a metal tripod base instead of a composite and increase the travel length of the slider part.

Conclusion

I like seeing innovative, new products however I wish the execution here was slightly better.
