It seems that it’s all about gimbals, drones and innovative stabilisers these days. Smooth camera movement has become extremely attainable these days with all sorts of brushless motor stabilisers popping up left and right. And now, DJI are offering some of their latest for less. In addition, in case you remember the latest from Filmpower – the Nebula 4100 single-hand 3-axis stabiliser gimbal for DSLRs and compact mirrorless cameras, then yeah that’s shipping too for around $600 bucks. So first things first – what is the Filmpower Nebula 4100? Well, if you remember the hugely successful Nebula 4000 Lite from a couple of years back, then you can look at the Nebula 4100 Lite as its logical successor.
