Encoders are special sensors that are added to each brushless motor of a Gimbal Stabilizer allowing the system to more accurately track motor position for increased stability which in turn also increases battery efficiency.
CAME-TV gimbals operate using the BaseCam SimpleBGC system. Only recently has the SBGC system been able to officially support Encoder Technology and our CAME-TV CAME-SINGLE Gimbal was the first handheld stabilizer to implement this new feature in a consumer ready product. Performance has been so successful, that we have been out of stock since it's first release.
Youtube user, Ed Rakel, posted this quick video of him using his new CAME-Single Gimbal with a Panasonic GH-4 + Olympus 12 mm f2.0.
The CAME-Single is designed around the idea of being able to operate a gimbal with just one hand. It's 3-axis with a 32-bit board and the brushless motors have encoders, making it the first basecam controlled gimbal on the market with encoders. The max payload the CAME-Single can handle is 2.6lbs and is designed for smaller cameras like the Sony A7s, Panasonic GH4 or the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.
Scotty Ray from Satostudiogear, posted a video a little bit ago of his hike up the famous "Half Dome" in Yosemite National Park. He recently uploaded this video of his review of the CAME-Single and mentions how he was able to pull off some of the camera shots he was able to capture in his Yosemite video.
"It was awesome to be able to pull a gimbal out of your backpack and have it up and running in 30 seconds... I also attached the Gimbal to the top of my Tripod by removing the manfrotto head. This is useful for shots you can't normally reach, or over tall cliffs " -Scotty Ray

The CAME-Mini 2 is a completely tool-less 32-bit 3-axis gimbal with dual IMU sensors that can hold camera setups that are no more than 1kg(roughly, 2.2 pounds). It's powered by four rechargeable 18650 batteries that are placed in the horizontal cross bar of the Mini 2. A new "Stop Ring" has beed added to the Mini 2, preventing the roll motor from over rotating, which may cause the internal wires to become tangled.
Cinema5D, passed by the CAME-TV booth during IBC 2015 and shot this quick interview with one of our representatives about the CAME-Single gimbal!
The CAME-Single is a 3-axis gimbal that has extremely accurate readings because of the encoders that are built into the motor. The CAME-Single has a built in battery in the handle itself that you can charge by plugging the charging cable directly to the handle. There's a 1/4-20" mounting point on the side of the handle and a 3/8" along with another 1/4-20" mounting point on the bottom of the handle.
In this video, Laurent Briere, used the CAME-Single to shoot this video that highlights a marathon at the royal city of Blois!
That CAME-Single is a 3-axis 32-bit basecam controlled gimbal that is completely tool-less, making it extremely easy to balance your camera. Currently, the CAME-Single is the first basecam controlled gimbal to offer brushless motors with encoders for highly accurate readings of the motors position. The sixth round of pre-orders are currently being accepted and should be shipping out around September 20, 2015.
With the recent release of the long awaited Sony A7RII camera, the CAME-TV A7RII Cage is designed specifically for the A7RII to fit snug in the cage itself. It's CNC machined from aluminum making it lightweight, but also extremely strong. The base plate and the top handle thats included with the A7RII Cage, has industry standard 15mm rod mounting points for attaching accessories like a follow focus and/or a matte box.
Premini, recently uploaded his first CAME-Mini 2 Gimbal test on Vimeo! No post stabilization was added and he did a quick color grade. He filmed the whole thing with a BMPCC + a Kern Paillard Switar 10mm lens.
The CAME-Mini 2 is a tool-less 3-axis gimbal that is built to work with lightweight cameras. All of the wiring is enclosed in the frame itself, making sure that the wiring doesn't get damaged while it's being used. The Mini 2 is completely powered by four 18650 rechargeable batteries that you insert into the gimbals horizontal cross bar.
Vimeo user, PigMintFilm, posted this wedding video that was shot using the CAME-Single Gimbal of the Bride and Groom's first choreographed dance. The video was shot with a Sony A7S + Sony 16mm F/2.8 lens.
The CAME-Single is a 3-axis basecam controlled gimbal that has brushless motors with encoders, which allows highly accurate monitoring of the motors position. The CAME-Single comes with a hard case for storage and a battery charger that you plug into the handle.
Reviewer Tom Antos does a great review of our 1080P Wireless HD Video System for DSLR video cameras. Tom gives an overview of the product as well as some examples of why a wireless video system would be useful during a project.
This wireless system supports full 1080p HD at 60Hz with very low latency. With simple plug and play, you don't need any extra software to use the equipment. The system can transmit up to 80m/260ft and works best in range line of sight.
Vimeo user, Dieter Knüttel, uploaded this three part CAME-Single review. The first part is an overview and an unboxing, the second is a driving test and the third is labeled "Action Scenes" where he shows how the CAME-Single handles during some running situations.

The CAME-Single has a max payload of about 2.6 pounds and can work with small cameras like the Sony A7s, Panasonic GH-4 and the BMPCC. The new updated version of the CAME-Single has internal batteries located in the handles that produce higher voltage for more power and stability.
Dan Chung from NewsShooter.com, posted an interview that was filmed at the CAME-TV booth at the BIRTV show in Beijing. The video gives a quick rundown on the specs and profiles of the CAME-Mini 2 Gimbal.
The CAME-Mini 2 is completely tool-less, allowing the operator to change camera setups and re-balance the entire system on the fly. A quick release system has been added to the MINI 2 Gimbal making it easier for the shooter to detach the camera from the gimbal.
The CAME-Single is a 3-axis gimbal that is made primarily for those "on-the-go" shooters who want a quick one-handed setup. With it's built in joystick, it will allow you to easily pan and tilt while the gimbal is in motion or stationary. The 1/4-20" mounting point on the side of the CAME-Single's handle gives the shooter the option to mount a monitor or a smartphone.
The CAME-Single is one of the first one-handed gimbals that uses brushless motors with encoders. It has a high voltage internal battery built into the handle that gives the CAME-Single more power and stability with a run time of roughly 20 hours.
