    Nebula 5100 Slant reviews

    5100 Slant 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal with Built-In Encoder is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steady video I shoot with 2 Canon 5Divs and various lenses. The faster "L" lenses are front heavy and require adjustments to the back, but even with the f/2.0 135mm it's possible. I find that the lenses (50mm and wider) are best to keep the images stable. I recently had my primary shoulder replaced, while the 5100 Slant isn't light, two handed shooting made it manageable. I heartily recommend it

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good gimbal for a Sony A7sii I have both this gimbal mainly because I wanted to have free back screen. I am very satisfied so far. Had set up problems in the beginning but with a very prompt and reliable customer care from filmpower that could be solved easily. Thumbs up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good one-handle gimbal We bought the Nebula Slant to go with our new Sony a7R MkIII camera for moving shots. Over all, we love it. It's much lighter than our Ronin M and much easier to use, especially for low-mode shots. Having the rear motor below the back of the camera is great although seeing any real detail or focus is still very difficult on the small monitors on cameras. I gave it four stars instead of five because the quick release receiver is very odd. It is held on by a screw that is an odd size, not even close to 1/4-20, the industry standard. We were planning to put a different receiver on this gimbal and an identical one on our slider so we could quickly and easily switch between the two. Now, that is not possible. The battery does seem to last forever. In fact, most of the time when shooting I leave it on even if I turn off the camera. One tip, make sure you balance the gimbal manually before you turn it on and make sure that balance is so good you almost don't need the motors because, if you don't, it will "drift", meaning it might slowly pan left or right, or tilt up and down even if it's sitting still on a table. I think this is true of most gimbals. Without a perfect manual balance, the force of gravity pulls them in whatever direction is off and the motors cannot compensate. This is true of the Slant. Two other things... the handle is OK but not the most comfortable. For my hand I would have preferred round with a coating and, having the joystick (for panning and tilting) on the left side is odd. Would have preferred that on the back of the handle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect as a 2nd unit setup We are a german production company mainly working in music video and fashion film – working with small budgets and tight schedules. It is always a hassle to change the system during the shooting – so we decided to go for a 2nd unit – using the� nebula slant and most of the time a small sony (a7 s) with autofocus. So we only do all the moving shots with this system. So far – this works really nice. As a D.O.P. I especially like the simplicity of the setup: no external monitor, no follow focus, no extra assistant. In the beginning I hoped that focusing manually would even be possible with this system as the gimbal is pretty resistant to touching it while it is working (most systems go crazy in that moment) – but this did not really work out. The moment you touch it, it creates a little shaking that can be seen on a monitor. Anyway – the payload is really great. We even got it working with a canon c 200 and a small autofocus lens. Focus works perfect in that combination of course… Well you need a little training as with all gimbals, but then, this system works really smooth… Most of the moving images we shot were made with this system:

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for Sony Handycams I bought the 5100 Slant as my 3rd Gimbal in an attempt to find a unit that would work with my Sony Handycams -� all of them have a flip out screen on the left side of the body (PXW-Z90V &�FDR-AX33).� In my experience every single gimbal in the universe is designed for either the go-pro or DSLRs and I was having a horrible time finding something that worked.� After 15 minutes with the 5100 I was about to chalk it up as another loss - I couldn't get it to balance correctly with the screen out - without screen or battery connecting with the gimbal body. bah. In desperation I turned to youtube to see if I could find a solution and there I found sentance in an english translation of one of the Filmpower guys taking you through a balancing invitation to contact support if you would like to setup the gimbal with the arm on the right side of the camera body.� I couldn't believe it!� two emails later I was in a skype session with one of the team in China, and using teamviewer and a USB cable he reprogrammed the� unit so the support arms were on the opposite side of the camera!� Now I had the freedom to balance the camera with ease!� And it's amazing.� The unit is sturdy, comes with a tripod stand and works amazingly well.� I've also ordered the manfrotto quick release plate for the gimbal and quick as a flash it has become an integral piece of bag kit.� thanks Nebula/Filmpower!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product, Not so good support Had this only since December 2017. Used maybe 6 times. The product works pretty good but there was a couple of things that were a bit wonky. First, the case that it comes in is flimsy and not even the one for the slant, but rather it's predecessor, so it barely fits. Second, the support is far from par. They are based in China with no real US presence, and you feel it. For example, the cam screw holding the base plate stripped with very little force. Wrote Film Power for support. Took them almost a week to reply and when they did they said that it was covered under warranty but would cost $20 to ship. Told me to look locally for the screw but offered ZERO guidance on what size or where or any of that. These are not garden variety Home Depot screws. If I knew that Ronin was going to release the S, I probably would have waited on the Nebula 5100. Support is as important as product performance. If I was Film Power, I'd be seriously concerned. JMHO.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not that steady with larger cameras Starts out ok, but once you add the $60 adapter plate this gimbal is wonky. I am disappointed in its performance.
