Leopold Hotz, recently used the CAME-Mini2 Gimbal to film a talented biker cruising through some parks! It was filmed using a Panasonic GH-4 with the Panasonic 12-35mm lens.

The CAME-Mini2 is completely tool-less, allowing the shooter to balance and change camera setups quickly. A quick release system has been added, making it easier to remove or insert your camera onto the Mini2 Gimbal. All the wires are completely enclosed into the frame, so that the wires won't be in the way as you shoot.

Vimeo user, Remo Chapeaublanc, uploaded this quick video of him testing out the CAME-Single Gimbal for the first time with his Sony A7RII and 16mm F/2.8 lens.
The size of the CAME-Single is perfect for mirror-less cameras like the GH4, A7s and A7RII. The quick release plate on the CAME-Single is completely tool-less making balancing your camera on the gimbal a breeze. Due to the encoder technology on the CAME-Single, stabilization is more precise and information about the frame and camera angles are more accurate.

Vimeo user, De Rienzo Films, went out to Trafalgar Square in London and grabbed some shots with his Panasonic GH3 with a 14mm pancake lens balanced on a CAME-Single 3-Axis Gimbal.
The CAME-Single is a handheld gimbal that is made for smaller cameras like the Sony A7s, BMPCC or the Panasonic GH3/GH4. The brushless motors with encoders, prevent the motors from being out of sync and can give you detailed information about the frame and the angle of your camera. The internal rechargeable batteries are fitted inside the handle of the CAME-Single itself, making it easier to plug-in and charge.

Youtube user, DayZeroSurvivors, uploaded this quick test of him putting the CAME-Single through a running test with his Panasonic GH-4 + Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm lens.

The CAME-Single has a larger frame than most pistol-grip style gimbals, allowing you to fully tilt up and down. The brushless motors are also significantly larger and have encoders built in them for more accurate motor readings. The CAME-Single has a run time of about 20 hours when the battery is fully charged.

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

Sean J Vincent, posted this detailed review on the CAME-Mini 2 Gimbal after using the gimbal on a current web series he's working on.

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.

Initially, you can download any version of the SimpleBGC software to connect to your gimbal. After your first successful connection, look at the version of the firmware on the screen (shown in green below). 

simplebgu_firmware_

Once you have verified the firmware version, you can go back and download the correct GUI version to match your firmware.

Typically, you will want the the software version whose number is equal or lower than the firmware version. For example, in the example above, since your gimbal has been programmed with a 2.56 b9 firmware, you will want to find a SimpleBGC software version that is equal or slightly lower than 2.56 b9. In this case, the closest software version available is 2.56 b7. You should always use the same GUI when configuring your gimbal. And most importantly, NEVER upgrade your firmware!!!

Download link for the SimpleBGC GUI software can be found here.
