RunPlayBack, uploaded this detailed video of how he made a D.I.Y rig, so you're able to capture steady shots while riding an electronic longboard or snowboard. He was able to achieve this by only using a handful of items: a Xiaomi Yi action camera, the CAME-ACTION Gimbal, a painter pole and a painter pole adapter. You can check out all these items along with some awesome example shots in his article Here>>
Here's one of the example videos from his article of his D.I.Y Rig in action!
The CAME-ACTION is one of the first commercially available 3-Axis 32 bit basecam controlled gimbals(made specifically for action cameras) to offer brushless motors with encoders. The design of the CAME-ACTION allows for one hand operation and the internal rechargeable batteries are fitted inside the grip handle. The built in Joystick can be used for controlling camera positions and for changing modes.
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.
All balanced + ready to go. Featuring the #panasonicgh4 + #rodemic #videomicro that is the perfect weight with no over powering from the motors of the #cametvsingle. Just chillin' with the #sonya7sii #SmallRig accessories + #canon70200. via Instagram http://ift.tt/1RG3UIM
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).
These are the newest #XEEN Cinema Prime lenses just released and just arrived. The 14mm and 35mm compliments the 24mm, 50mm, and 85mm. They say they are adding one more very soon (possibly 16mm). Really hoping to see a 100mm or 135mm too! @rokinon @samyanglensglobal #rokinon #Sony #FS7 #A7sII @satostudios @cametv Cage via Instagram http://ift.tt/1Tfoja7
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!
