Recently, Vimeo user, Kluzo, used the CAME-7800 gimbal to cover an event in Paris!
The CAME-7800 uses three motors that stabilize the camera along with the pan, tilt, and roll axis. The motors will help compensate for shakes, vibrations, and other unwanted movements, allowing you to get some smooth shots.
In this quick video posted by Youtube user, Joe Taravella, he takes his new CAME-Single gimbal out for a test run! The footage looks great, especially when he walks up and down the stairs. He used his Sony A7S with a Sony 10-18mm F4 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 CAME-Steadicam can hold camera setups that are roughly 5 to 33 pounds with a minimum height of 27.5 inches and a max of 40 inches. The CAME-Steadicam comes equipped with a baseplate that has a Power, AV and HDMI connector. You also have the option to buy the stabilizer and the vest separately or as a package.
If you have connected your gimbal via USB, you may need to install the proper driver for your Mac or PC to communicate with the control board which can be found Here>>.
Once you have installed the proper Mac or PC driver and restarted your computer, connect the gimbal, go into the SimpleBGC software, and on the upper left, select the proper USB port, and hit 'Connect'.
If you still do not see the gimbal or if you already have the proper drivers for your computer, please check your USB cable to make sure it is a Data cable. We suggest either testing the cable or just change the cable entirely to make sure it is not an issue.
Make sure the cable is fully connected to the gimbal and your computer, then restart the SimpleSBC program.
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 size and weight of the Blackmagic Design 4K Production Camera will not work with the CAME-TV 7000 / 7500 / 7800 Gimbal Stabilizers. For cameras such as the BlackMagic 2.5K, 4K, and RED Epic we suggest using our CAME-TV 8000 Gimbal Stabilizer.
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!
