Youtube user, JBF (Johnnyboy Films), recently uploaded this fanmade music video he shot for the song "Everything" by the band Black Skirts. It was shot using the CAME-Single Gimbal and the Panasonic G7! He also mentioned that he used three different lenses - the Lumix 12-35mm f2.8, Lumix 20mm f1.7 and the Sigma 17-50mm with a Micro four-thirds adapter.
The CAME-Single is a 3-axis basecam controlled gimbal that is designed to be used with one hand. It has a net weight of of about 1.2kg(roughly 2.6lbs), making it easy to carry around with you on different types of shoots. The CAME-Single is great for smaller setups that don't exceed 2.6 lbs - like mirror-less cameras such as the BMPCC, Panasonic GH-4 and the Sony A7S/A7RII cameras. It has a built-in joystick that can easily be used with your index finger for panning and tilting to achieve multiple types of camera shots. The new encoder technology that are built-in the brushless motors offer more stability, increases torque and decreases the power consumption - making the gimbal's battery life last longer.
Vimeo user, SkyKapture, uploaded this wonderfully shot video of his group trying out a new chairlift that opened up at the Kirchdorf Ski Resort in Tirol, Austria. He shot the entire video with just his Panasonic GH4 with a Lumix G 14-140mm zoom 1:3.5-5.6 and the CAME-Mini 2 gimbal, all while he was riding on a snowboard!
The CAME-Mini 2 is a 3-axis gimbal that is extremely compact and entirely tool-less. All the electronics and wiring are enclosed through the frame, so there are no hanging wires in the way while you use it. It takes four rechargeable 18650 batteries that are inserted into the horizontal cross bar of the Mini 2. The gimbal comes with a custom molded carrying case, making it easier to transport while on location for a shoot.
Stein Olsen, posted this short test of his first try using the CAME-Single gimbal. It was shot in Norway and he used a Sony A7SII with a Zeiss 16-35 f4 Lens.
The encoders on the CAME-Single increase the torque, stabilization and helps give the gimbal a longer battery life. The CAME-Single itself weighs about 1.2kg and can carry mirror-less cameras like the BMPCC, Sony A7S/A7R cameras and the Panasonic GH4. There are three different mounting points on the grip itself - (2) 1/4-20" and (1) 3/8". The mounting points will allow the shooter to mount a monitor, microphone, tripod stand or even attach the CAME-Single to a jib. The joystick is incredibly smooth to use, giving you the option to pan and tilt as you use the CAME-Single.
Roger Hall, from CameralandNL, took out his CAME-Single gimbal with his Sony A7S + the Sony 28-70mm f/3.6-5.7 lens and grabbed some awesome footage at his local airport!
The video not only shows footage from his camera, but also some BTS shots of Roger Hall using the CAME-Single. The battery life on the CAME-Single can operate for up to 20 hours due to the updated internal rechargeable batteries. The CAME-Single offers full 3-axis stabilization and is incredibly easy to balance for setups that are no more than 2.6 lbs. The size of the CAME-Single is perfect for mirror-less cameras such as the Panasonic GH4, Sony A7s /A7RII, and BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Cameras.
Laurent BRIERE, follows French ultra trail runner, Yoann Stuck in this documentary style video called "Town To Trail". In the video Laurent Briere used the CAME-Single paired with his Panasonic GH-4 and 12-35mm F2.8 lens.
The CAME-Single is perfect for these types of shots that require a lot of tracking and movement. The CAME-Single has a max payload of about 2.6 lbs, making it perfect for mirror-less cameras. The pieces all fit into one carrying case, which make it extremely portable and easy to carry around between locations. The CAME-Single has internal rechargeable batteries that are built into the hand grip, giving the CAME-Single more power and stability due to a higher voltage output.
Andrew Gerard, posted this final scene from a short film he's been working on. The scene was filmed entirely with the CAME-Single gimbal and his Sony A7Rii with the Fe 28mm F2 lens!
The CAME-Single is one of the first basecam controlled gimbals that offer encoders. The encoders will prevent the motors from losing sync, increase torque/stabilization and decrease power consumption. The CAME-Single is perfect for mirror-less cameras like the Panasonic GH4, the Sony A7S series, A7RII and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema cameras. If you haven't scene Andrew Gerard last Came-Single video, watch it below!
The sounds built into the gimbal serve several key functions - notifying you 1) when your gimbal is powered up, 2) when you've successfully switched profiles, 3) when your battery is running out, or 4) when it senses a general error within the system.
However, when you're right in the middle of a production, there are moments when silence is absolutely necessary - such as a wedding, a film/tv scene with recorded audio, etc. For these situations, it may be necessary to temporarily deactivate (or mute) the sounds coming from your gimbal. Simply connect to the SimpleBGC software, and then go into the Service tab and select which sounds you want to turn off.
Andrew Gerard, recently posted this fight scene called "Two Faced", which he shot with the CAME-Single and Sony A7Rii camera with a Fe 28mm F2 lens. The short film follows two guys as they duke it out in a boxing gym.
The CAME-Single was used the whole time for the short and he shot all of it in one day. The CAME-Single has encoders built into the brushless motors allowing the gimbal to have an incredible amount of stability. A 1/4-20" and a 3/8" are located underneath the handle for mounting the CAME-Single to a tripod/monopod or to a jib. The CAME-Single comes with a hard case for easy packing and portability.
Pano Verino, recently posted his second test of the CAME-Single paired with his Sony A7Sii! The video clocks in at about a minute, but it's filled with great shots that show the stability of the CAME-Single. No post stabilization was added.
The CAME-Single is designed to be lightweight, portable and easy to use with just one hand. It has a max payload of about 2.6lbs, making it perfect for cameras like the Sony A7S series, Panasonic GH4, BMPCC, etc. If you want to see Pano Verino's first test, check it out below!

Pano Verino, uploaded his first test with his Sony A7Smk2 balanced with the CAME-Single gimbal! He does state that there was No Post Stabilization added in post, but the Sony's in camera image stabilization is turned on.
The video is short and mainly focuses on how his setup handles while running and walking. The CAME-Single is one of the first commercially available 3 Axis 32 bit basecam controlled gimbals to offer brushless motors with Encoders. Encoders are often used in Robotics for highly accurate monitoring of the motors position. The design of the CAME-Single is made for shooters to operate the gimbal with just one hand and a 1/4 and 3/8 thread is located under the handle for mounting options.
Mesh Frequency, states that the main purpose of this video was to see how the CAME-Single handles when following a subject. He also mention how cold and windy it was while filming this field test.
It was cold and windy but it took only 5 minutes to set up the gimbal. I messed up the focus in few places but my main goal was to follow the subject. Unlike what few reviews on line said the whole thing fit in my bag. Over all I am very happy with the tool.
The CAME-Single offers full 3-axis stabilization with a built in joystick and brushless motors with encoders. It's extremely easy to balance with it's tool-less design and portable body, making it easy to take with you for shoots. The CAME-Single has an internal battery that will allow it to operate for up to 20 hours.
The CAME-7800 is a great gimbal for shooters who mostly film with DSLR cameras like a Canon 5Dmk2 or a Nikon. In this video, Park Life used a Sony A7S, which is lighter than a DSLR, but the CAME-7800 can handle it perfectly. The max payload the CAME-7800 is about 6.5lbs and the gimbal offers multiple operating modes, giving the shooter more choices for his/hers scene.
The CAME-Single Wireless Remote is super convenient when you want to remotely control Pan and Tilt on (some) CAME-SINGLE Gimbals. The remote feature works well with a second operator controlling the camera’s movements as the first operator moves around the set. Achieve perfect framing and complete more complex camera movements by working with Dual Operators. If you have your gimbal mounted to the end of a long Crane or Jib you can control easily control the camera with this remote. The system connects via Bluetooth up to 30 feet away. (Range will vary depending on Line of Sight and environmental interference.)
Note: This module is only compatible with Came Single Gimbals purchased after Nov 1st 2015.
