WOW this looks nice.  Just wondering why they they went with the Moza Air vs the DJI Ronin 2 gimbal?

Looks cool huh? Just need to ditch the Moza.

Nice set up, but what happens when that thing spins around with that cable attached?

What makes you think it would spin around? It won't; it's a gimbal.

Looks like a nice rig to me.  Man that Z series is a hot looking set up. Any owners here?

So is the Z6 supposed to be the better video camera out of the new Z series?  I never see them talking about the Z7 for film makers.

Because a full frame sensor at 24MP is more than adequate for 4k video. Until we all move to 8k (if ever) the Z7, at it's higher resolution, is overkill for video.

At 16x9 (widescreen) you only need 9MP for 4k video. Which is why smaller sensors are perfectly suited to the format.

+1 agree.  I was surprised to learn this when I asked a friend with the Sony A7s II.  Figured this would have more MP considering it's release date.   This camera just has 12.2MP and get's crazy reviews.
