With the recent release of the long awaited Sony A7RII camera, the CAME-TV A7RII Cage is designed specifically for the A7RII to fit snug in the cage itself. It's CNC machined from aluminum making it lightweight, but also extremely strong. The base plate and the top handle thats included with the A7RII Cage, has industry standard 15mm rod mounting points for attaching accessories like a follow focus and/or a matte box.
Premini, recently uploaded his first CAME-Mini 2 Gimbal test on Vimeo! No post stabilization was added and he did a quick color grade. He filmed the whole thing with a BMPCC + a Kern Paillard Switar 10mm lens.
The CAME-Mini 2 is a tool-less 3-axis gimbal that is built to work with lightweight cameras. All of the wiring is enclosed in the frame itself, making sure that the wiring doesn't get damaged while it's being used. The Mini 2 is completely powered by four 18650 rechargeable batteries that you insert into the gimbals horizontal cross bar.
Vimeo user, PigMintFilm, posted this wedding video that was shot using the CAME-Single Gimbal of the Bride and Groom's first choreographed dance. The video was shot with a Sony A7S + Sony 16mm F/2.8 lens.
The CAME-Single is a 3-axis basecam controlled gimbal that has brushless motors with encoders, which allows highly accurate monitoring of the motors position. The CAME-Single comes with a hard case for storage and a battery charger that you plug into the handle.
Reviewer Tom Antos does a great review of our 1080P Wireless HD Video System for DSLR video cameras. Tom gives an overview of the product as well as some examples of why a wireless video system would be useful during a project.
This wireless system supports full 1080p HD at 60Hz with very low latency. With simple plug and play, you don't need any extra software to use the equipment. The system can transmit up to 80m/260ft and works best in range line of sight.
Vimeo user, Dieter Knüttel, uploaded this three part CAME-Single review. The first part is an overview and an unboxing, the second is a driving test and the third is labeled "Action Scenes" where he shows how the CAME-Single handles during some running situations.

The CAME-Single has a max payload of about 2.6 pounds and can work with small cameras like the Sony A7s, Panasonic GH-4 and the BMPCC. The new updated version of the CAME-Single has internal batteries located in the handles that produce higher voltage for more power and stability.
Dan Chung from NewsShooter.com, posted an interview that was filmed at the CAME-TV booth at the BIRTV show in Beijing. The video gives a quick rundown on the specs and profiles of the CAME-Mini 2 Gimbal.
The CAME-Mini 2 is completely tool-less, allowing the operator to change camera setups and re-balance the entire system on the fly. A quick release system has been added to the MINI 2 Gimbal making it easier for the shooter to detach the camera from the gimbal.
The CAME-Single is a 3-axis gimbal that is made primarily for those "on-the-go" shooters who want a quick one-handed setup. With it's built in joystick, it will allow you to easily pan and tilt while the gimbal is in motion or stationary. The 1/4-20" mounting point on the side of the CAME-Single's handle gives the shooter the option to mount a monitor or a smartphone.
The CAME-Single is one of the first one-handed gimbals that uses brushless motors with encoders. It has a high voltage internal battery built into the handle that gives the CAME-Single more power and stability with a run time of roughly 20 hours. Also, if you haven't seen Yakir Yahish, other CAME-Single test check it out below.
The CAME-TV FS7 Cage is designed specifically for the Sony FS7 camera, allowing you to mount multiple useful accessories to the cage itself that will help your shooting experience. The FS7 Cage has two rosette mounting points(one on each side), which gives you the option to mount the FS7's remote control grip directly to the cage.
BBW Production, shot this short video of the "Speedtest Glassdrive Racing" Event entirely on the CAME-7800 Gimbal!
With a max payload of roughly 6.6 pounds, the CAME-7800 Gimbal is designed for cameras like the 5Dmk3, GH4 or the Sony A7s.
In this beautifully shot video, Scotty Ray, traveled to Yosemite National Park to hike up "Half-Dome". He brought along the CAME-Single Gimbal to document his trip and was able to piece together this video.
"I used the CAME-Single over other gimbals because of its size and reliability. It does everything I need and fits inside my normal DSLR bag. It's a great overall gimbal.
For the video, I used a Sony A7s with a Sony 16-35 Zeiss version lens. The video was shot in one day which took about 14 hours without having to charge the CAME-Single."
The CAME-Single is a one handed 3-axis gimbal featuring motor encoders that prevent the motors from losing synchronization and skipping steps, decreases power consumption, increases precision of stabilization, and more. The CAME-Single is perfect for small mirrorless cameras such as the Panasonic GH4, Sony A7s or A7RII, and BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera. With the upgraded battery, the gimbal can run up to 20 hours on a single charge.
All CAME-TV gimbals have been designed to support numerous camera/lens setups. That is, as long as the overall payload does not exceed that particular gimbal's pre-determined weight capacity. However, it is also possible for a camera setup to be too light. When this happens, users may notice shaking, vibrating, and even noises coming from the motor of their gimbal. But don't panic!! Essentially, the gimbal's motors have been programmed to expect a slightly heavier payload and are just working a little bit harder than they have to.
A quick fix to this problem, would be simply to lower the Motor Power in the SimpleBGC software. But first, before making any changes, we advise archiving all of your current settings (ex: saving your profile or capturing screenshots). In the unlikely event that you may have to revert back to those values, you'll at least have your screenshots for reference. Once that's done, investigate the gimbal and find out which motor (Yaw, Pitch, or Roll) is giving you problems. Once you have determined the culprit, connect to the software and reduce the Motor Power settings accordingly. Step by step details can be found in the video below.
NOTE: For heavier camera setups, simply increase motor power settings instead of decreasing them.
During this motor power adjustment process, it is ok to turn on your gimbal and test functionality after applying changes. Please know that this is a trial & error process and it may take some time to find the perfect settings for your camera setup. And just as a reminder, once you're able to determine the correct settings in one profile to stabilize your gimbal, apply those settings to the remaining 2 profiles in the Basic Tab of the software.
FocusPulling (.com), uploaded this video about getting some extra battery power for your camera. He goes through a bunch of gear that you might need and if you skip to around the 07:32 mark in the video, he goes over the specs of the CAME-TV VM02 V-Mount Plate.
The CAME-TV VM02 V-Mount Plate offers 12V, 7.2V and 5v outputs and comes with an industry standard 15mm rail mount, so that mounting it to your rig is a breeze.
