James Norden, posted this quick test of him using the CAME-Mini 2 gimbal! The video consist of James taking the Mini 2 gimbal out on the street and following someone.
He was able to balance his Sony A7RII with the Voigtländer 21mm f/1.8 lens. James Norden does state that his setup did exceed the max weight the Mini 2 can handle. The CAME-Mini 2 is a tool-less gimbal that provides the shooter with incredibly smooth footage. It's really easy to balance your camera on the gimbal and it only takes four rechargeable 18650 batteries.
"Overall I'm very impressed with the CAME Mini 2 - with the right lighter lens it will produce excellent results." - James Norden
Recently, Tom Antos, posted this detailed review of the CAME-Single 3-axis gimbal. He does state that he was using a Sony A7s with a big lens that might of exceeded the max payload the CAME-Single can handle, but it still worked well and gave him steady footage. In this video he demos the Single with a Sony NEX-5R.
Tom Antos, goes through great detail on what the CAME-Single comes with and how you would normally setup/balance it. The cool thing about the video is that he actually cuts in some "behind the scenes" footage of a recent shoot he worked on using the CAME-Single. The CAME-Single works great as a portable gimbal that you can easily bring around with you.
Laurent Briere, follows hundreds of youths and adults running in this marathon that has been going on for 28 years. The CAME-Single is lightweight enough for the shooter to run side by side with a subject as they run, walk or jog. The brushless motors with encoders make the CAME-Single gimbal extremely stable and efficient.
He follows the BB-8 using a BMPCC with a Zeiss 50mm F1.7 lens balanced on the CAME-Mini 2 gimbal. The video is just under :30 seconds, but it demonstrates how stable the Mini 2 gimbal can be when trying to follow a fast subject. The Mini 2 has a clean and professional appearance by having all the wiring internally, so that it won't get in the way as you shoot. It takes four rechargeable 18650 batteries, which slide into the horizontal cross bar.
Laurent BRIERE, posted this quick video of him filming some of his friends at a skatepark with his Panasonic GH4 and CAME-Single gimbal!
The CAME-Single is great for getting steady footage when you're shooting a scene that requires you to follow a subject that's continuously moving around. Laurent BRIERE, has posted a lot of videos in which he follows athletes as they compete in some form of competition. The CAME-Single is a 3-axis gimbal that's designed for you to use one-handed. The new encoder technology allows the CAME-Single to use less power, but also increase the overall stability.
Recently, Dieter Knüttel, finished his five part review on the CAME-Single gimbal and now he just posted his review on the new CAME-ACTION gimbal for the GoPro.
Dieter Knüttel, goes through all the specs for the CAME-ACTION including the different modes and everything that comes in the box. The last few minutes of the video show a bunch of test footage he shot using the CAME-ACTION. The CAME-ACTION is able to work with the GoPro Hero 4, 3 and 3+.
Lucent Productions, was able to take the CAME-ACTION gimbal out to the park with his kid and grab some quick test footage with his GoPro.
The CAME-ACTION is made for shooters who want to get some stable action shots with their GoPro camera. It runs on three rechargeable 16340 batteries , which are small, lightweight and portable. It's made of aluminum alloy and weighs in at 0.66 pounds without the camera and batteries. Since, we introduced the CAME-Single with new encoder technology, the CAME-ACTION also uses brushless motors with encoders, which will decrease the power consumption and increase the overall stability.
David Oastler, posted this detailed review of the CAME-Single 3-axis gimbal. He goes through the balancing process with his Sony A7s and toward the end of the video he shows some test footage that he captured while using the gimbal. (NOTE: David Oastler, does state that there was an audio problem with his mic).
The CAME-Single is a tool-less designed gimbal that is made for one-handed operation. The built in joystick allows you to pan and tilt your camera depending on your shot. To turn on the CAME-Single, you press and hold the button located on the side of the handle. To switch between the three different operating modes, you simple click the same button until the mode you want is selected.
The video shows how the CAME-7800 gimbal can be a good piece of equipment to have for shooting action sports like BMX, skateboarding, rollerblading, etc. The CAME-7800 is a great gimbal for DSLR cameras like the Canon 5Dmkiii or mkii but can also work with smaller cameras like a Panasonic GH4 or Sony A7s.
Ken Lauguico, posted this video that highlights a wedding he shot using the CAME-7500 and CAME-Single 3-axis gimbals. He used two different DSLR cameras, the Canon 6D and the Canon 5Dmkii.
The video has a ton of great tracking shots that follow the bride and the groom as they both get ready for the ceremony. The CAME-Single is a great one handed gimbal that provides extremely steady footage because of the brushless motors with the new encoder technology. The CAME-Single is great for cameras like the Sony A7sii, Panasonic GH4 or the BMPCC.
Although, the CAME-7500 is no longer available, the CAME-7800 is an upgraded version of the 7500 gimbal and is tool-less. For more information on the CAME-Single or the CAME-7800 click below!

Here's a quick informative video on how to check the voltage on your gimbal batteries!
If you happen to have a multi-tester laying around, it would be a good idea to check the batteries you have for your gimbal. You want to make sure your batteries are fully charged before testing the voltage.
The 18650 batteries for the CAME-TV Mini/Mini 2 and the 16340 batteries for the CAME-ACTION gimbal should be reading at 3.7v or higher. The 3S Lipo Battery for the CAME-7800 and 8000 should be giving you a reading of 11v or higher.

Your card is formatted, talent's in place, and your gimbal is perfectly balanced. And just as you're about to roll camera.... your gimbal's battery dies. But wait? You charged your battery overnight, right? Even so, batteries, just like most things that involve power, have a shelf life.
The best way to avoid this nightmarish scenario is to test your batteries on a regular basis using a voltmeter/multitester. Among the many things it's capable of, a multitester can read the voltage of your battery and let you know if it has enough juice in it to perform. And just as easily, it can let you know if the battery is ready to be replaced.
If you don't own or readily have access to a voltmeter or multitester, then you can bring your battery(ies) into most electronics/repair shops or automotive garages. Most of these businesses will test your batteries for free.
