Encoders are often used in Robotics for highly accurate monitoring of motor position. Some of the benefits of using Encoders are to: prevent motors from losing synchronization and skipping steps, provides important information about frame and camera angles, decreases power consumption (longer battery life), increases Torque, increases precision of stabilization, and more.
Currently our only gimbal with motor encoders is our CAME-Single.
Voyager Video, posted this quick test of the CAME-Mini 2 gimbal! It was shot with the Sony A7S and a Zeiss 24-70mm lens.
The new CAME-MINI 2 Gimbal is completely tool-less, which allows the operator to quickly change camera setups and re-balance the entire system for optimal performance. All of the wiring and electronics are enclosed into the frame offering a clean professional appearance and also protecting all the wiring.
The CAME-MINI 2 is a full 3-Axis stabilizer (Pitch, Roll, and Yaw) using the latest 32 Bit SBGC controller with Dual IMU sensors. This is the most advanced controller and sensor combination available for gimbals using SBGC system.
The CAME-7500 3-axis gimbal is designed to compensates for shakes, vibration or any unwanted jitter while shooting, allowing you to capture smoother shots that look like your camera is floating freely. The updated version of the CAME-7500, now includes new quick-release knobs that make it easier to adjust on the roll and yaw axis.
Youtube user, SWAF Jarrad, posted some quick test footage from his CAME-Single 3-Axis gimbal. In the video, he does mention that he had some trouble in the beginning, but once he changed the lens on his camera, everything was a lot smoother. His setup in the video was a Panasonic GH-4 with a Panasonic 14-140mm lens. Check out his footage below!
Here's a quick test of the CAME-Single that AeroVideo shot with his Sony A7S camera plus a Sony 28-70mm lens.
The new CAME-SINGLE is one of the first commercially available 3-Axis 32-bit basecam controlled gimbals that offer brushless motors with Encoders.The design of the CAME-SINGLE allows the shooter to operate the gimbal with just one hand and has a 1/4-20 and 3/8 threaded mounting point located under the handle.

The CAME-Single is equipped with brushless motors that have encoders. The encoders prevent motors from losing synchronization, skipping steps, decreases power consumption, increases Torque, increases the precision of the stabilization and provides important information about frame and camera angles.
