Moza Air 2 Gimbal Photography Holiday Gift Guide

Moza Air 2 Gimbal with iFocus M and Hard Shell Carrying Case – $599

An item that we own and love is the Moza Air 2 Gimbal stabilizer by Gudsen. If you've been searching for ways to create fluid, cinematographic movements while filming, the Moza Air is (in our well-researched and humble opinion) the best gimbal on the market in 2019. In a pinch, use this gimbal as a short tripod to steady photographic shots. We highly suggest giving YouTube a visit to watch actual footage and reviews of this incredible device. It's something you'll definitely want to experience for yourself once you see its full capabilities. Be warned: there is a huge learning curve when using gimbals for the first time. If you're serious about improving your craft though, the Moza Air 2 is a must. If you or your loved one have been in the market for one of the absolute best tech gadgets for videography, you won't want to miss the current holiday promotion. Right now, the Moza Air 2 is having an amazing sale, which includes the iFocus device for $599.
Moza Air Gimbal Backpack

MOZA Professional Camera Backpack – $199

We're going a little out of order price-wise on this guide, but for good reason. If a Moza Air 2 is on Santa's wish list, then the Moza Professional Camera backpack really is a no-brainer. After literally months of in-depth research, we discovered (and then concluded) that this backpack is the only backpack that was capable of fitting our Moza Air 2, along with all our other devices (like our DJI Mavic 2 Pro, and Sony Alpha a6400 camera, both which are on this list). It happens to be one of the largest on the market, standing at almost 20 inches tall, about 13 inches wide, and 7 inches deep. It is TSA approved and when we traveled to the Azores (who have very strict carry-on size limits), we passed through the carry-on baggage screening without any issues. The backpack is a bit pricier than one might have liked, but given the fact that there isn't much else out there that's perfect for a full photo and video kit with a gimbal, it's absolutely worth the money. It is also safely padded and sits extremely well on the back when worn. Purchase the Moza Professional Camera Backpack for $199 this holiday season.
Sony Alpha a6400 16-50mm Lens Photography Holiday Gift Guide

4K Mirrorless Sony Alpha a6400 with 16-50mm Lens – $998

The Sony Alpha a6400 is one of the latest additions to the Sony Alpha family. This mirrorless 4K camera is lightweight and compact, making it the perfect traveling camera. Don't let the term "traveling camera" fool you though. Despite its compact design, there is no compromise in quality for this 24.4 MP APS-C sensor mirrorless camera. Shoot up to 30fps in 4K video. The Sony a6400 is loaded with other incredible features, one being its stellar autofocus system. We personally own the Sony Alpha a6400 after deciding to downsize from our large Canon DSLR and it has been an amazing asset to our work. This is why it's the perfect addition to our Video & Photography Holiday Gift Guide! Snag this camera with a 16-50mm Lens for $998.

Affinity Editing Software

Affinity Editing Software – $49.99

We're going a little out of order price-wise on this gift guide for a minute. Not so keen on the idea of blowing through that much cash for Adobe?
