A few customers have reported that their recently purchased Mini-3 gimbal did not have an instructional manual that came with it. For those who are in need of it, you can find an online version of the manual available for viewing & download here.
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!
Currently, the CAME-Mini 2 is out of stock but make sure you click the image below to see all of our "Mini" gimbal products! Also, sign up for our newsletter to receive updates and information on any new products we release.
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.
More SimpleBGC tips can be found here.
Going to try a completely another way of filming experience with @cametv gimbal and #sonyrx10.

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.
