Almost setup for the first filmmaking seminar. @cametv is here helping us and showing off their latest products
Vimeo user, Simon Shasha, was lucky enough to be chosen by Blackmagic to test their Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera before it hits the shelves. The video is beautifully shot and Simon, actually used two CAME-TV products to shoot the video - the CAME-Single and the new CAME-TV Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera Cage plus a Lumix 12-35mm lens.
The CAME-Single is a 3-axis gimbal that is designed to be portable and extremely steady due to the new encoder technology that has been implemented on the gimbal. It's completely tool-less, making it easy to balance and has a max payload of about 2.6 lbs. Simon, was also kind enough to post some pictures of his setup with the CAME-Single and the BMMCC.
The newly designed CAME-TV BMMCC Cage is made to fit the new Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera perfectly. All the buttons on the BMMCC are all easily accessible and it comes with a 15mm rod system. Not only does it come with a solid top handle, but it also comes with a wooden side handle that makes it more comfortable to hold. Take a look at his setup with the CAME-TV BMMCC Cage.
It has been brought to our attention that SimpleBGC GUI version 2.55 b3 is no longer available on the Basecam Electronics website. Since this software is developed externally by a third party company, we have no control over its availability through that site.
However, we know that many of you have CAME-TV gimbals that require this particular version of the software (and associated firmware). So we will provide you with a download link to the 2.55 b3 GUI version by clicking here.
If you are unsure of which software version you should use, then click here.
Kyle SHOX Brown FILMS, posted this promo video of the Bassline Festival that took place in Manchester. He used a Sony A7s with a Canon 35mm F2 and a Zeiss 24-70mm F4 lens - all balanced on the CAME-7800 for the video.
The CAME-7800 is a 3-axis gimbal that is able to hold setups that weigh up to 6.5 lbs, making it perfect for shooters who want to use their DSLR/Mirror-less cameras with a slightly heavier lens. Right out of the box, the CAME-7800 has multiple operating modes that give the shooter different options while shooting a scene. You can disable the follow mode on the pan/tilt, enable the follow mode on the pan/tilt or a "commixture" mode, which allows you to enable the pan but disable the tilt. All the modes can easily be cycled through by pressing the joystick down.
Vimeo user, Media Collaboratory, uploaded this quick video of him grabbing some footage with his new CAME-TV Single gimbal. His camera setup was a Panasonic GH-4 with a Lumix G 14mm f/2.5 ASPH II lens and it was all shot in V-Log.
The CAME-Single is designed to be portable and easy to use with just one hand. It's completely tool-less, so that there's no hassle balancing or making minor adjustment while your camera is on the gimbal itself. There are two main pieces of the CAME-Single - the handle and the frame, both of which have their own padded cut out in the hard case. Having the gimbal in two pieces allows the shooter to be able to quickly break it down and bring it to different shooting locations. The max payload of the CAME-Single is about 2.6 lbs and can work with lightweight mirror-less camera setups.
