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?

Though this information can be found on all of our gimbals' respective product pages, below you will see a quick index showing the appropriate camera types along with the maximum payloads that each gimbal is designed to support.

CAME-Prophet
Cameras supported - Medium-sized DSLR cameras, including Canon 5D/7D Series, Panasonic GH4, Sony A7r/A7s series, etc.
Maximum Payload (including lens & accessories): 6.6 lbs / 3 kg

Note regarding lens adapters: We strongly suggest that only native lenses be combined with your cameras while being mounted on these gimbals. Lens adapters such as metabones will add excess weight to the setup (plus usually attached to heavier lenses), which will exceed the max payload, and prevent your gimbal from balancing properly.

Maximum Payload (including lens & accessories): 2.6 lbs / 1.2 kg

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.

, posted this quick test video a few days ago of him trying out the Samsung NX-1 camera paired with the CAME-7500 gimbal.

The CAME-7500 is the older version of what is now the CAME-7800 3-axis gimbal. The 7500 gimbal required users to build the gimbal and  required tools to balance the camera on the carriage. Now, most of the gimbals that we offer are tool-less, pre-built and some even have encoders built into the motor (CAME-Single & CAME-Action). The CAME-7800 is a good gimbal for setups that might be too heavy for the CAME-Mini 2 or the CAME-Single. We have a variety of gimbal models that can hold small action cameras(CAME-Action) or bigger setups like a Blackmagic Cinema Camera(CAME-8000).

Brandon Lane, uploaded this test video that is mainly focused on how the Sony A7Sii Slog2 performs. In the video he decided to try it out by following his dogs with the CAME-Mini 2 gimbal.
The video is all in slo-mo using a Samyang 35mm Cine T1.5 and a Samyang 14mm T3.1 lens shot at 120fps. Brandon Lane, does state that he shot the whole video with the CAME-Mini 2 set to  mode 1(Follow Mode). The CAME-Mini 2 is a tool-less 3 axis gimbal that is designed for smaller bodied cameras like the Panasonic GH4, BMPCC and/or the Sony A7Sii cameras. All of the wiring and electronics are completely enclosed into the frame, offering a clean professional appearance and to also protect the wiring.

With less than a month a way for the long awaited Star Wars movie, check out this CAME-Mini 2 test by Maxime Le Bec!

He follows the BB-8 using a BMPCC with a Zeiss 50mm F1.7 lens balanced on the CAME-Mini 2 gimbal. The video is just under :30 seconds, but it demonstrates how stable the Mini 2 gimbal can be when trying to follow a fast subject. The Mini 2 has a clean and professional appearance by having all the wiring internally, so that it won't get in the way as you shoot. It takes four rechargeable 18650 batteries, which slide into the horizontal cross bar.

Here's a quick informative video on how to check the voltage on your gimbal batteries!

If you happen to have a multi-tester laying around, it would be a good idea to check the batteries you have for your gimbal. You want to make sure your batteries are fully charged before testing the voltage.

Screen Shot 2015-10-30 at 11.10.29 AM

The 18650 batteries for the CAME-TV Mini/Mini 2 and the 16340 batteries for the CAME-ACTION gimbal should be reading at 3.7v or higher. The 3S Lipo Battery for the CAME-7800 and 8000 should be giving you a reading of 11v or higher.

Sean J Vincent, posted this detailed review on the CAME-Mini 2 Gimbal after using the gimbal on a current web series he's working on.

The CAME-Mini 2 is a completely tool-less 32-bit 3-axis gimbal with dual IMU sensors that can hold camera setups that are no more than 1kg(roughly, 2.2 pounds). It's powered by four rechargeable 18650 batteries that are placed in the horizontal cross bar of the Mini 2. A new "Stop Ring" has beed added to the Mini 2, preventing the roll motor from over rotating, which may cause the internal wires to become tangled.
