Re: 3-Axis Gimbals?

Very impressed so far Simon, within the hour I'm out shooting. Considering the nightmare that was the Steadygim 15 this is bliss.

The form factor impresses me most ,I've got a 3 axis gimbal with a monitor in one hand. I've had a bit of a play but I'll take it out tomorrow to shoot something

Oooh, looks great.
I have been a Glidecam user for many years and although I find it fantastic I think the gimbals will help me were I need it the most.

Re: 3-Axis Gimbals?

Sadly Paul, I'm in discussion with customer support as my Nebula 4000 isn't functioning properly.

I'm hoping we can sort it out, or at least I'll get a replacement unit because I did have it working the first few days and was fairly impressed, even before I had a chance to fine tune the PID settings.

The Nebula 4000 Lite looks so cool, with this design you can easily see the screen.

The backside of the Nebula sled blocks the view for a part but I found it workable, I only found it too bad that for camera's like a GH4 the lcd screen could not be opened because the sled and gimbal position prevents that, if that part would have been positioned on the other side then any camera with a flipout lcd screen would be possible to open the screen which would make it a lot better to see what you where doing. But Like I said, it was possible to see enough from the screen and determine how you wanted to frame the shot.

We chose an external monitor because the camera LCD screen can't be seen if the stabilizer is being held with both hands. Stabilizer with both hands at the time of shooting is also can't see the camera, so
