question

does it work well with a sony a7rii and a 24 mm canon L?
Asked by: karin i.
I've only used it on a Sony A7. I understand the A72 series might be a little larger? This could be a little problematic. It seems that my A7 might be on the edge in regard to weight, and size. I think this is because the stabilizing motors might be on the weaker end. So the lighter and smaller the camera, maybe the better performance of the Nebula? Just a guess. For me, the Nebula works best following or being in front of a person. I think the average Human's walking motion disguises the up and down bounce you would get without a person in frame.

question

In using the 4000 with a Lumix GH3 or 4 the LCD display view is blocked, and even a lightweight external monitor will be too heavy. In research I've seen some users mount the unit on a larger bracket like a Fig Rig that could also support an HD monitor, but that diminishes the discreet nature of this design. Any interesting solutions to monitoring?
Asked by: William B.
I would like to throw out the idea of using smart or virtual reality glasses connected wirelessly to the GH4. Unfortunately, I was not able to confirm any combination actually working. If made to work, it would be ideal for what you wish to do.I was not able to find other solutions. It does seem that people deal with the issue of a blocked screen. Final thought: if it is possible to change the camera bracket arm and gimbal to the opposite side, you should be able to view the flipped out GH4 LCD screen.

question

About using the external battery, what is best operation assuming I don't mind keeping it attached? To turn it on when the internal is low, or to leave it on all the time so it charges the internal constantly? Or...?
Asked by: William B.
I attached the external battery to the gimbal when its internal battery ran out. After using the gimbal for awhile, I detached the external battery. The gimbal still worked. This implies that the external battery is also charging the internal battery while in use. So, I'd say keep the external battery attached and on always.
