Shana Vassilieva of Happy Shiver Productions, filmed this highlight video for Empowering Women and Girls through Sports. It's a great program that focuses on increasing the number of woman and girls from around the world to get involved in sports. The documentary highlight video was primarily shot using the CAME-TV Single gimbal with a Panasonic GH4 camera and Lumix 12-35mm lens.
Shana was kind enough to share some great BTS pictures of her on location shooting the video with the CAME-Single. We encourage you to check out Shana's article that she posted on her blog that will give you a little more insight on the program.
The Sony a6300 continues to be a popular camera with more and more camera tests being uploaded. In this video, PIGMINTFILM, tests the autofocus features of the Sony a6300 camera with the CAME-TV Single gimbal. The lens he used was the Sony FE 28mm f2.
The CAME-Single is a tool-less 3-axis gimbal that is designed to be operated with just one hand. With a physical weight of about 1.31 kg, the CAME-Single has a max payload of about 2.6 lbs. It was made for lighter camera setups like a Panasonic GH4 with a Lumix 12-35mm lens or a Sony A7s with a Sony 28-70mm lens (more camera and lens compatibility can be seen on the product page). The new internal battery produces a higher voltage output, which will give the Single more power and stability.
The brand new CAME-TV Mini 3 is the latest edition in our CAME-Mini gimbal series. Unlike the Mini 1 and Mini 2, the new Mini 3 uses basecam 32-bit controllers with encoders. Having encoders on the Mini 3 gives the gimbal more stabilization, increases the torque and decreases the power consumption for longer battery life. The new smart battery is quick and easy to install and provides up to 10 hours of runtime(depending on your setup).
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!

Jeff Estanislao, recently uploaded this wedding video he shot with the CAME-Single gimbal! He states that all the tracking/floating shots were filmed with the Single balanced for his Sony A7S and Sony 10-18mm F4 lens.
The CAME-Single is a solid one-hand designed gimbal that is made for cameras like the Panasonic GH4, Sony A7Sii/A7Rii series cameras and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. The whole gimbal(including parts) fit in a protective portable hard case. The interior of the hard case has foam cut-outs that protect the gimbal and makes sure everything is kept in place. The CAME-Single has three different operating modes that you can cycle through via the button on the side of the handle.
