Laurent Lichtenstein, uploaded this teaser trailer for an upcoming French travel show he's directing. In this teaser trailer titled "Mission Hawaii", Laurent, mostly filmed it with the CAME-Single and BMPCC Camera plus a Kowa Prominar 8.5mm lens.

The CAME-Single is extremely portable and can easily be brought with you on location to different shoots. The CAME-Single comes with a custom hard flight case that has foam cut outs inside for the handgrip and frame. The quick release camera plate system makes it easier for you to precisely balance your camera setup or to do some fine-tuning when you're out on a shoot. With the new internal battery design combined with the encoders, the battery life can roughly last 20 hours.

Dan Chung, from newsshooter.com posted this test video and article about his experience with the autofocus feature of the Sony a6300. For the video, he filmed a dance group using the a6300 paired with the CAME-TV Single gimbal.

The CAME-Single is a 3-axis gimbal that is designed to be used with just one hand. The encoders that are built onto the brushless motors make the gimbal more stable and precise while you shoot. On one charge, the CAME-Single can last roughly 20 hours because of the updated internal rechargable battery. The Single has a max payload of about 2.6 lbs, which is perfect for smaller/lightweight camera setups.

Jeff Estanislao, uploaded this wedding video he shot with the CAME-Single 3-axis gimbal balanced for his Sony A7S and Sony 10-18mm F/4 lens.

The CAME-Single is designed with a single handgrip that allows the shooter to use the gimbal with just one hand. The CAME-Single is completely tool-less and has a quick release plate, so that balancing you camera is extremely easy. The new internal battery on the CAME-Single has a higher voltage output, which gives the gimbal more power and stability. There are mounting points on the bottom and on the side of the Single, allowing you to attach accessories like a LED light or a camera monitor.

Johnnie Behiri, from Cinem5D.com, uploaded this detailed article on the new Sony A6300 camera. Along with a well written article, Johnnie Behiri, posted a test video in which he used the CAME-Single with the Sony A6300 and a Sony 16-35mm F/4 lens.

Although, brushless motors with encoders have been available for a little bit now, the software used to control gimbals have recently added support for encoders. The CAME-Single is one of the first commercially available 3-Axis 32 bit basecam controlled gimbals to offer brushless motors with encoders. It can hold camera setups up to  2.6 lbs, which is perfect for mirror-less cameras like the Panasonic GH4, BMPCC and the Sony A7S series cameras.

Our Latest Featured Customer Video Is With Simon Shasha Who Pairs The Latest Blackmagic Design Micro Cinema Camera With Our CAME-TV Came-single Gimbal Stabilizer and the Blackmagic Micro Cage To Produce His Video 'training Day'.

Tell us a little about yourself and the videos you create.

Hi guys, my name is Simon Shasha. I am an independent-filmmaker living in Sydney, Australia. I grew-up in a very low-income, working-class family. Film and Cinema have always helped me escape reality when I needed too, and further my understanding of the human-condition. I believe that filmmaking is the ultimate amalgamation of all the arts. My ultimate goal is to create films that address the human-condition. I want my films to be powerfully empathetic and allow the audience to experience life in someone else's shoes. For work and income, however, I create live-event videos for many famous musicians that come to tour in Australia (a showreel of my live-event work can be seen here:https://vimeo.com/70929158). Live-event video production is very exciting, energetic and kinetic, and requires a filmmaker to be able to adapt to the situation - there are no storyboards in live-event video-production - so you can never truly be prepared - you just have to adapt to each situation as best as you can and be confident with the decisions you make as you shoot.

How did you decide on choosing our CAME-TV Single?

I already owned a CAME-TV 7800 3-Axis Gimbal. When I found out that I was selected as a beta-tester for Blackmagic's Micro Cinema Camera, I decided that a small, light, single-handed 3-axis gimbal was needed. Having been impressed with my CAME-TV 7800 gimbal, and after seeing the other single-handed gimbals on the market, I decided that the CAME-TV Single was the best choice based on specs and quality.

Do you use the CAME-TV Single often?

Yes, very often! I now use it even more than my CAME-TV 7800. The CAME-TV Single is just so simple and fun to operate! And the battery lasts FOREVER!

What is your typical camera setup when using our CAME-TV Single?

My typical setup is usually a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera/Micro Cinema Camera with a Panasonic 12-35mm F2.8 lens.

What kind of style do you typically try to aim for when shooting videos?

My favorite film of all time is the French film "La Haine". Not only is the story, acting and direction great, but the cinematography too. The cinematography it uses, in my opinion, is very a pseudo-documentary style - though it is a cinematic film, the photography is very realistic and reminiscent to the lighting and camera movement you'd usually expect to see in many documentaries - it is very raw and gritty. My other favortie films, such as "Amores Perroes", "City of God", "Children of Men", and the commercial and music-video work of French director, Romain Gavras, also employ this technique. I usually try and aim for this style when shooting with my films and live-event work. I do this because I feel that the realness and rawness of this technique draws the viewer in more and allows them to feel as though they are really there - thus immersing them in a more subjective experience with the film's environments and characters.

Would you recommend the CAME-TV Single to other videographers/shooters?

Yes! Especially if you want to achieve cinematic camera movement with a small and easy to use kit!

How often do you go out and shoot videos?

I try and shoot every weekend - even if I will never use the footage. I believe it is the best way to learn and master technique.

What do you like best about the CAME-TV Single?

I like that it allows the creation of very cinematic camera-movement - and it does it while being compact, light and easy to set-up!

Where does your inspiration to shoot videos come from?

I believe video/filmmaking is a very powerful art-form. It has the power to influence hearts and minds, and allow people to feel things - truly feel things. I really believe filmmakng can make the world a better place by means of subjective immersion and empathetic response. My inspiration comes from wanting to contribute to that goal. From a technical-aspect, I draw my inspiration from from my favorite director's (Terrence Malick, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Wong Kar Wai, Chen Kaige, Zhang Yimou, Spike Lee, Chan-wook Park, Takeshi Kitano, Christopher Nolan, Darren Aronofsky), my favourite cinematographers (Christopher Doyle, Emmanuel Lubezki, Rodrigo Prieto, Roger Deakins, Matthew Libatique, Jeff Cronenweth, Jordan Cronenweth) but also from commercials and music-videos too (mainly the work of Jonathan Glazer and Romain Gavras).

What is your favorite type of shot you like to achieve?

I don't necessarily have a favorite type of shot, however, I like when a shot is so immersive that even I forget that there is a camera there. This is why I like the work of Terrence Malick so much; I feel his use of only natural-lighting creates a very natural, immersive and subjective experience

Is there anything else you would like to share about the CAME-TV Single?

The CAME-TV Single is truly a great-product that opens up an entire world of camera-movement that was just not feasible before - and it does it with a very small footprint at a very affordable price. I recommend it to all filmmakers, but I highly-recommend it to other filmmakers that are like me; low-budget filmmakers that usually work alone and have a very "run and gun" style of cinematography. It really is an amazing piece of kit!

How was your experience with our Blackmagic Micro Cage?

The CAME-TV Blackmagic Micro Cage was really great and easy to work with - amazing build-quality too! It allowed me to take the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera, which is basically a camera-sensor in a box, and sculpture my own hand-held, light-weight rig around it. I suspect that the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera will be used mainly for things like drones, and as a "crash cam" with car-mounts and so on, however, thanks to equipment like the CAME-TV Blackmagic Micro Cage, the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera can now be used like any other camera in a traditional handheld/chest/shoulder set-up. The CAME-TV Blackmagic Micro Cage provides the freedom and capability to allow cinematographers to customize their filmmaking configurations as they see fit.

Vimeo user, Luigi De Vita, uploaded this short clip of a video he shot using the CAME-Single gimbal and his Sony A7SII camera + a Sony zeiss 24-70mm f4 lens.

In the video, the CAME-Single is used for tracking the subject as he walks toward the van before ultimately getting in it. The van then drives off and we slowly follow as it starts to leave the parking garage. With a max payload of 2.6 lbs, the CAME-Single is designed to be portable, easy to balance and used with just one-hand. The encoders on the CAME-Single enhances the gimbals performance by preventing the motors from losing sync, increasing the torque/stability and decreasing the power consumption - allowing the gimbal to last longer.

Vimeo user, Simon Shasha, was lucky enough to be chosen by Blackmagic to test their Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera before it hits the shelves. The video is beautifully shot and Simon, actually used two CAME-TV products to shoot the video - the CAME-Single and the new CAME-TV Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera Cage plus a Lumix 12-35mm lens.

The CAME-Single is a 3-axis gimbal that is designed to be portable and extremely steady due to the new encoder technology that has been implemented on the gimbal. It's completely tool-less, making it easy to balance and has a max payload of about 2.6 lbs. Simon, was also kind enough to post some pictures of his setup with the CAME-Single and the BMMCC.

The newly designed CAME-TV BMMCC Cage is made to fit the new Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera perfectly. All the buttons on the BMMCC are all easily accessible and it comes with a 15mm rod system. Not only does it come with a solid top handle, but it also comes with a wooden side handle that makes it more comfortable to hold. Take a look at his setup with the CAME-TV BMMCC Cage.

Vimeo user, Media Collaboratory, uploaded this quick video of him grabbing some footage with his new CAME-TV Single gimbal. His camera setup was a Panasonic GH-4 with a Lumix G 14mm f/2.5 ASPH II lens and it was all shot in V-Log.
The CAME-Single is designed to be portable and easy to use with just one hand. It's completely tool-less, so that there's no hassle balancing or making minor adjustment while your camera is on the gimbal itself. There are two main pieces of the CAME-Single - the handle and the frame, both of which have their own padded cut out in the hard case. Having the gimbal in two pieces allows the shooter to be able to quickly break it down and bring it to different shooting locations. The max payload of the CAME-Single is about 2.6 lbs and can work with lightweight mirror-less camera setups.

TG Film & Photo, uploaded this test of him following his dog with the CAME-Single gimbal. He balanced his Sony A7SII with a Zeiss 16-35mm lens.
The CAME-Single is a one-handed basecam designed gimbal that utilizes encoder technology to increase the stability of the gimbal. The batteries are internal rechargeable batteries that can last up to 20 hours. The CAME-Single can hold camera setups that don't exceed 2.6 lbs, so its perfect for mirror-less cameras that are lightweight. In the first test video he uploaded, he was walking down a wobbly pontoon in the water to see if any of the bounce can be seen in the footage. Watch the video below! He also states that he didn't add any post-stabilization.

Vimeo user, PanoVerino, uploaded this quick video that he shot while he was on a trip over the weekend. All the aerials were shot with a DJI Phantom 3 and all the ground shots were filmed using the CAME-Single gimbal with his Sony A7SmkII + Sony 16-35mm F4 lens.

The CAME-Single provides the shooter with incredible stability, while also being extremely portable. It comes packed in a hard case with foam padding on the inside, making sure that the CAME-Single doesn't get damaged when you bring it to multiple shoots. Balancing your camera on the CAME-Single is easy due to the tool-less design and the quick release camera plate. The CAME-Single has a larger frame than most pistol-grip gimbals, allowing you to fully tilt the camera up and down.
