The Nebula5200pro 3-Axis Brushless Gimbal Stabilizer with Nebula Arm [Single] from Filmpower is a handheld stabilizer designed to support loads up to 13 pounds, making it suitable for a wide range of camera systems, from DSLRs to professional cinema cameras such as the Canon C300/500, Blackmagic Production Camera 4K, and RED EPIC. To provide stabilization, the system utilizes three motors that counteract movement along the pan, tilt, and roll axes. This compensates for shakes, vibrations, and other unwanted movements, lettings you capture smooth, free-floating shots. The stabilizer is designed to be handheld using two side handles, with a top handle available for low-angle shots.
To reduce arm fatigue while shooting, the single-arm version of the Nebula Arm is included, which consists of a vest, height adjustable support arm, and a bungee cord with hook that attach to openings in the stabilizer's arms or top handle. The system can support loads between 6.6 and 17.6 pounds. When not in use, it folds down to fit in an included carry bag.
The stabilizer offers three different operating modes. You can choose to lock the camera in place along all three axes (pitch, yaw, roll), or select modes where the camera will smoothly follow as you pan and tilt the device. Pitch (tilt) and yaw (pan) can also be remotely controlled by a dedicator operator using an included RC transmitter. To accommodate camera accessories, such as an external monitor, numerous 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes are provided on the arms and handles. For accessories such as a wireless follows focus, the system features front 15mm rods on the camera platform.
As with sled-style stabilizers, the camera should be balanced to ensure best performance. To assist with balancing and camera attachment, the stabilizer features a quick-release plate. Additionally, a foldable carbon fiber balancing stand is provided for easy balancing in the field. Once balanced, the Nebula5200pro can be linked via Bluetooth to an Android or iOS mobile device for configuration and parameter adjustment.
The Nebula5200pro is powered using a 4000mAh lithium-polymer battery that provides up to four hours of operating time. A battery charger is included. Also included is a hook-and-loop belt, hex keys and screws, handle non-slip belts, and a hard case for convenient storage and transportation of the stabilizer system and transmitter. The Nebula Arm comes with its own bag to store the vest, folded arm, and bungees.
