Move Shoot Move Z mount review
Slider user's review

Hi Friends,

For months we have been refining a new product designed together with professional landscape astrophotographer, Alyn Wallace (website). Now, we're ready for pre-order.

Below is a quick review of the journey, we hope you enjoy:

On the 14th June 2020, MSM ambassador Alyn Wallace told us that he has an idea for a new star tracker platform to solve the following problems:

The Problem:

- When at latitudes close to the equator it becomes very difficult to use the ball head on top of a star tracker.

-It’s also difficult to do panoramas, regardless of latitude.

The Solution

Adding a “Star Tracker Platform” so that the ball head becomes level. The angle can be adjusted and locked into place and the platform can also be rotated. The platform is a perfect match for the Move Shoot Move rotator but also works with any star tracker..

Later, we researched all the possible alternative solutions, practicing and using, finally came to the first version as below:

1st Version, mainly verifying the mechanism to lock the angled platform and also the rotating base.

 

2nd Version, Enlarged the center rotation section.

3rd version,

- Wrapped the rotating disc to prevent dust entering.

- Changed screw to handle.

4th Version,

Added more space for the bottom handle, so we can operate with gloves.

And Finally, the final 5th Version, with some minor improvements to launch the production.

Below is the performance of the MSM Platform

Below is the performance of OTHERS

Work as a tripod head

 Alyn Wallace Z platform

V or Z? Which Should You Buy? 

The V and Z platforms both solve the problem of having your ballhead at an awkward angle when on a star tracker. So what's the difference? 

The V platform is for those who want to save weight. If you're already using a heavy setup you may not have much room to add weight on top of the MSM which has a payload of 3kg.

The Z platform has the added benefit of being able to be used to replace the ball head on a tripod when not using a star tracker at all. You can also use the Z platform as a table-top tripod. So it's an exchange of versatility for a little added weight.

too heavy

Seems like a good device but it will not hold the weight I wanted it for. It might prove useful for something else in the future.

Regarding v mount claim...

The v mount was not completely folded when fully folded and there was a slight gap.
A slight gap was disturbing the level, and this gap wanted to be improved...
I have filed a claim for this issue with msm.
However, so far no one involved has emailed me regarding this relationship.
What do you think about this issue?

Amazing quality

Very well thought out piece. I use it to hang my camera from a drone and the tension performs flawlessly! Doesn't hurt that it's adds to the visual appeal

MSM Z Plate

Pretty solid and compact to carry around, really game changer. I wish there would be an upgraded version with dual rotation base, and maybe with a slightly wider locking surface, because I sometimes feel pain in my finger when tightening tightly without Allen Key. but overall, very recommended!

Good Product Bad Shipping

The product is fine. It's good quality, as I expected. I paid extra for fast shipping, which took approximately a month to receive.

V mount

I really liked it, i think it helped me to have more stabilization when using the nomade

Great V plate.

I’m using the V plate and it makes my setup so much easier. Alyn & MSM really has thought about it quite a bit. I do wish the knobs are bigger, but that’s because I have big hands.

Alyn Wallace Z-Mount

Lovely bit of kit. Very well made. It may struggle with a heavier camera/lens combo but works really well with my Canon 5D and Samyang 135mm. It has replaced much heavier ball head for my purpose and has lightened the load for my MSM Rotator.

So easy to use

I have not used it much, as the milkyway core is not visible till march. But setting up is so quick and easy to use. Can wait to use for real.
