TG Film & Photo, uploaded this test of him following his dog with the CAME-Single gimbal. He balanced his Sony A7SII with a Zeiss 16-35mm lens.
The CAME-Single is a one-handed basecam designed gimbal that utilizes encoder technology to increase the stability of the gimbal. The batteries are internal rechargeable batteries that can last up to 20 hours. The CAME-Single can hold camera setups that don't exceed 2.6 lbs, so its perfect for mirror-less cameras that are lightweight. In the first test video he uploaded, he was walking down a wobbly pontoon in the water to see if any of the bounce can be seen in the footage. Watch the video below! He also states that he didn't add any post-stabilization.
Vimeo user, llija, uploaded this quick test CAME-TV 7800 gimbal test. The whole test was shot with the Nikon D600 plus a 17-35mm F.28 lens.
With a max payload of about 6.5 lbs, the CAME-7800 is perfect for DSLR cameras like the Canon 5D series, Nikon DSLRs and even Panasonic GH-4s with a heavier lens. The CAME-7800 comes pre-calibrated with a 32-bit Alexmos control board and is tool-less on the Roll and Yaw axis, making it easier for you to balance your setup on the gimbal. There are two different version of the CAME-7800 that you can purchase - the 7800 gimbal by itself or with a case and a balancing stand.
Vimeo user, Liszön, recently used the CAME-Mini 2 gimbal to shoot a music video for the song "Little War" by the band Spy From Moscow. It was shot using two BMPCC cameras and he would switch between three different lenses. Liszon, states that his Mini 2 setup used solely a Samyang 12mm F2 lens with his BMPCC and for the other handheld shots he used a Tamron 17-50mm and a Sigma 30mm.
The CAME-Mini 2 is completely tool-less and gives the shooter three different profiles to use. Profile 1 - enables follow mode on the pan and tilt, Profile 2 - allows follow mode on the pan (not the tilt) and Profile 3 - disables follow mode on the pan and tilt. All of the wiring and electronics are all completely enclosed in the frame of the CAME-Mini 2, which will prevent any wires from getting in the way while the gimbal is in use.
Vimeo user, PanoVerino, uploaded this quick video that he shot while he was on a trip over the weekend. All the aerials were shot with a DJI Phantom 3 and all the ground shots were filmed using the CAME-Single gimbal with his Sony A7SmkII + Sony 16-35mm F4 lens.
The CAME-Single provides the shooter with incredible stability, while also being extremely portable. It comes packed in a hard case with foam padding on the inside, making sure that the CAME-Single doesn't get damaged when you bring it to multiple shoots. Balancing your camera on the CAME-Single is easy due to the tool-less design and the quick release camera plate. The CAME-Single has a larger frame than most pistol-grip gimbals, allowing you to fully tilt the camera up and down.
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.
Mimicking the success of the CAME-ACTION Gimbal for GoPros, the new CAME-ACTION 2 is designed with the same encoder technology offering unparalleled performance and stability for Smartphones like the iPhone 6 or 6s.
The CAME-ACTION 2 is lightweight and extremely portable - constructed from an Aluminum alloy and weighs in at a very light 300 grams / 0.66 pounds (without the battery and camera) and is compatible with the iPhone. Like the CAME-ACTION for the GoPro, the CAME-ACTION 2 is 3-axis and has a 32-bit board with encoders. The CAME-ACTION 2 is now available for pre-order and will start shipping the pre-orders in March 2016.
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.
