Our Latest Featured Customer Video Is with Sean J. Vincent,  who Uses The CAME-TV Mini 2 Gimbal to shoot this promotional video for The Project 7 Tactical Gear.

Tell us a little about yourself and the videos you create.

I moved from being a producer and engineer in the music business to being a director about 8 years ago. I’ve directed features, music videos and commercials and i write for Digital FilmMaker magazine in the UK as well as my own blog www.seanjvincent.com

How did you decide on choosing our CAME-TV Mini 2?

I was looking for a small and light gimbal to use with a GH4 for a Sci-Fi series called ‘Paradox’ i shot at the end of last summer. The Mini2 was the best of the ones i tried.

Do you use the CAME-TV Mini 2 often?

I use it on almost every job i do now. It’s so easy to use and i love how light it is.

What is your typical camera setup when using our CAME-TV Mini 2?

I use it with either a GH4 or A7S and always with my Atomos Shogun mounted on the top. I have modified my Mini2 by adding a much bigger top handle and a suspended microphone mount as well as an articulated monitor mount for my Shogun.

What kind of style do you typically try to aim for when shooting videos?

It depends on the project. I always like to bring a cinematic style to everything i do.

Would you recommend the CAME-TV Mini 2 to other videographers/shooters?

I would definitely recommend the Mini2. It’s so quick and easy to set up. I love the tool-less design.

How often do you go out and shoot videos?

Several times a week i’m shooting something. If it’s not an actual project i’m working on, i’ll be out shooting tests of some kind.

What do you like best about the CAME-TV Mini 2?

It’s easy to use, very light and i don’t need to carry any tools to use it.

Where does your inspiration to shoot videos come from?

Again, it depends on the project. For the ‘Mission 7’ project, i wanted to bring a cinematic action movie style to what is usually a more corporate type of project.

What is your favorite type of shot you like to achieve?

Flowing gimbal shots are always very satisfying to use….but i love any kind of shot that serves the story i am trying to tell.

Is there anything else you would like to share about your CAME-TV Mini 2?

The batteries last ages and i carry a spare set with me all the time. It’s really easy to shoot all day with it… and that’s not easy on most gimbals.

I want to try some CameTV LED lights next!

A few common questions that we receive from customers regarding our gimbals are (A) Does my camera & lens combo work? and (B) What is the gimbal's maximum payload?

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.

simplebgc_firmware_screen

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.

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, 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.

The sounds built into the gimbal serve several key functions - notifying you 1) when your gimbal is powered up, 2) when you've successfully switched profiles, 3) when your battery is running out, or 4) when it senses a general error within the system.

However, when you're right in the middle of a production, there are moments when silence is absolutely necessary - such as a wedding, a film/tv scene with recorded audio, etc. For these situations, it may be necessary to temporarily deactivate (or mute) the sounds coming from your gimbal. Simply connect to the SimpleBGC software, and then go into the Service tab and select which sounds you want to turn off.

You can always re-activate the audio alerts whenever you feel the need to.
