The Nebula 4000 Lite is the first one-handed 3-axis gimbal for cameras like the Panasonic GH4 and Sony a7S.

The Nebula’s small size makes it portable and easily-packable, but it also has certain limits. These user videos will help you determine whether the Nebula 4000 Lite fits into your production workflow.

This 11 minute video by davidmontitv is one of the most comprehensive examples of the Nebula 4000 Lite’s capabilities in a variety of shooting situations. It covers things like following a walking subject, tracking a subject while walking backwards, and static shots.

The Nebula 4000 Lite is even mounted on the end of a pole to simulate jib shots.

As noted in the title, this video was shot with the Panasonic GH4 and Olympus 9-18mm f/4.0-5.6 zoom lens.

This video is a good example of what is possible with the Nebula 4000 Lite after some practice and the right rigging. Erik Naso mounted the gimbal and the Panasonic GH4 in a Manfrotto Fig Rig for even more stable tracking shots.
