Not sure if this is the "other one" you are referring to, but if you're not impressed by the Nebula, I've heard great things about Pilotfly H1. Apparently it's even easier to balance and seems a bit sleeker to my eyes anyway. Similar pricing and Pilotfly appears to have a great history of creating very well made and well reviewed stabilizers. PILOTFLY H1 Handheld 3axis Stabilizer for Mirrorless camera - Copter-RC

I'm not 100% sure but I don't think the H1 has the same handle problem from what I've read. They seem to have the same "userprofiles" thing going on that you mentioned so it's probably best to dial in those exact settings for this one too. All these one handed stabilizers look good at times. I was surprised not to see more at NAB, but these two have definitely stood out to me.

Hope that helps!

Re: Nebula in NAB 2015 Show

there is this Italian designed version too, looks interesting and some of the footage seems to deal well with walking motion

Well, I was not planning on mentioning competitors because this was a thread about the Nebula but since Iris from filmpower seems to only say how good the nebula is and where you can buy it instead of answering some of concerns that have been raised I guess it's not wrong to talk about some other options as well. I was indeed referring to the pilotfly but I have a feeling many new will come out the following months and the ministurdyflight is a 2nd example of that. I only rather wait for enough user experiences before considering buying one. The ministurdyflight demo's look quite good + they would allow me as a business to buy tax excluded as they are located in Italy, it's a bit more pricy then both the Nebula and Pilotfly but since I could deduct taxes it actually is cheaper then the 2 other options available. It allows the lcd screen from a gh4 to open sideways which is a big plus and you can remove the handle which makes it much easier to transport and it has tool-less balancing, I only need to see if the supplier would do any effort in explaining the Basecam software that is used to finetune the parameters or you could end up in the same situation as me with the Nebula but I see that is a work in progress on their website, an interesting option though and will certainly follow this one, thx for sharing the link Ade.

The ministurdyflight shots look the best of all 3 options. Really nice. Could be an experienced user, or it could just be that much better. No idea. Wish there was more info on the actual device itself (balancing, batteries, operating, and any 1/4 20's?) Pretty vague on their site with only a couple photos and general descriptions. It's "composed by strong mechanical parts". Thanks! :) Any other info on that one? Can't deny that the footage looks great.

I'm aware of that problem and I'm trying to get that situation corrected.
