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

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.

In order to get smooth, steady shots with any of our CAME-TV gimbals, you want to make sure that your camera is properly balanced on them. However, sometimes our customers are so eager to put their new gimbal to use, that they don't take the time balance it accurately.

If you are reading this article, then chances are that you already have, or are in the process of balancing your gimbal. The video below, we will show you a very quick and easy test that will let you know if you've done so correctly.

For full, step-by-step instructions how to balance your gimbal, check out these useful videos produced by reviewer MrCheesycam. CAME-TV 7800 CAME-TV MINI CAME-TV MINI 2, Single

All CAME-TV gimbals have been designed to support numerous camera/lens setups. That is, as long as the overall payload does not exceed that particular gimbal's pre-determined weight capacity. However, it is also possible for a camera setup to be too light. When this happens, users may notice shaking, vibrating, and even noises coming from the motor of their gimbal. But don't panic!! Essentially, the gimbal's motors have been programmed to expect a slightly heavier payload and are just working a little bit harder than they have to.

A quick fix to this problem, would be simply to lower the Motor Power in the SimpleBGC software. But first, before making any changes, we advise archiving all of your current settings (ex: saving your profile or capturing screenshots). In the unlikely event that you may have to revert back to those values, you'll at least have your screenshots for reference. Once that's done, investigate the gimbal and find out which motor (Yaw, Pitch, or Roll) is giving you problems. Once you have determined the culprit, connect to the software and reduce the Motor Power settings accordingly. Step by step details can be found in the video below.

NOTE: For heavier camera setups, simply increase motor power settings instead of decreasing them.

During this motor power adjustment process, it is ok to turn on your gimbal and test functionality after applying changes. Please know that this is a trial & error process and it may take some time to find the perfect settings for your camera setup. And just as a reminder, once you're able to determine the correct settings in one profile to stabilize your gimbal, apply those settings to the remaining 2 profiles in the Basic Tab of the software.
