This is the second iteration of DJI cameras and this time the camera was entirely made by Caddx. The goal with this camera was to reduce the size and weight of the system. At 5.2g, it’s about half the weight of the default camera. With the smaller size comes some minor compromises as well. The Nebula will not do low latency mode. High quality mode doesn’t really have latency issues but it’s not advised to use for high spec racing. Also, the Nebula will ONLY do 16:9 and not 4:3. This means that your vertical FOV will be somewhat reduced.
The main differences in image quality of the Nebula vs default DJI camera is that the Nebula will have a much more exaggerated HDR effect, lower resolution and much more edge sharpening. The resulting image will look more processed and less natural. The default DJI camera has better overall image quality but the Nebula is no slouch at all. There is no analog camera in the industry that could hold a candle to either of these cameras however for the best experience, we would advise using the full size DJI camera if it will fit inside the frame you plan on using and your build can carry the extra weight without issue.
