Nebula 4100 slant

With an integrated lightweight structure, good battery life, innovative balancing system and higher payload, the Nebula 4100 is probably the most flexible of the 3-axis Nebula gimbals.

Filmpower has been designing film-making equipment since 2010, and was behind “the first full metal gyroscope stabilizer in the world” – the Nebula 5000, back in NAB 2014. Since then, Nebula gimbals have become a valid tool for many independent filmmakers requiring a hand-held gyroscope stabilizer for their productions.

The Nebula 4100 is the newest in the line of one-handed stabilizers, and offers some cool features that can definitely make a filmmaker’s life easier, especially in one-man-band productions.

Main features and improvements

Weight and payload

At 700g, the Nebula 4100 Slant weights less than previous models, and is the most compact gimbal in the whole Nebula series. Furthermore, the payload of the gimbal is higher (1.8kg), thus supporting a variety of mirrorless cameras.

Balancing mechanism

The balancing mechanism is straightforward, and the whole process of balancing the camera is faster and easier thanks to its 3 points (gravity center, pitch point and roll point).

No screen blocking

Although not an improvement specific to this model, this is a very important feature when shooting with one-handed 3-axis gimbal since it gets over the painful limitation of having the camera screen blocked by the gimbal while shooting.

Integrated structure

The new integrated structure design has helped expedite the time-consuming process of assembling → continue…
