Just going to put this out there right now... DO NOT UPGRADE YOUR FIRMWARE, no matter what the SimpleBGC GUI screen tells you. Doing so will completely wipe out your board and can potentially cause irreversible malfunction to your gimbal. And even worse, this course of events runs you the risk of voiding your warranty.
If you are attempting to connect to the SimpleBGC software for the first time, and you receive a pop-up message telling you that you should upgrade your firmware because of a "board vs. GUI mismatch" (as seen below), then it's best that you simply use a different version of the software, rather than upgrade your firmware. When this happens, simply disconnect and then quit out of the current SimpleBGC that you are using and then download the software version that is closest to the firmware version that the pop-up message is recommending.
So in the case shown above, we connected our gimbal to SimpleBGC GUI version 2.43 b9. However, the gimbal's internal control board has been programmed with a software version using firmware 2.50 b2, which is obviously higher than the GUI software that we are attempting to use (v2.43 b9). So as stated earlier, disconnect & quit out of the 2.43 b9 software, and then download and launch the version of the SimpleBGC GUI that is closest in number to the recommended firmware, which in this case would be 2.50 b3.
You should be able to connect successfully this time around with your settings completely intact.

The CAME-7800 is an upgraded version of the old CAME-7500 and comes pre-assembled. The 7800 has an updated quick release plate with tool-less adjustments on the roll and yaw axis, making it easier to balance your camera on the gimbal. Although, you4reel doesn't state what type of lens he used, the CAME-7800 is able to hold more weight than our Mini 2 gimbal. It has a max payload of about 6.5 lbs and is perfect for your Canon 5D model DSLR cameras.
The CAME-Mini 2 is completely tool-less and has a sleek/compact body, making it extremely easy to carry around and hold. It's designed for compact setups for cameras like the Panasonic GH-4, BMPCC, Sony A7S and other mirror-less type cameras. The custom molded carrying case that the Mini 2 comes in, provides protection when you need to take the gimbal with you to different locations.The horizontal crossbar on the Mini 2 holds the four rechargeable 18650 batteries that power the gimbal.

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.
Going to try a completely another way of filming experience with @cametv gimbal and #sonyrx10.

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.
