Last month we released a brand new accessory for the CAME-Single, a wireless joystick that allows you to control its pan & tilt movements remotely. It's definitely been a hit with customers so far. However, whether you are a current CAME-Single owner, or if you're looking to one day get one, it's important for us to point out that not all Singles will be compatible with the wireless remote upgrade.

So how do you know if your Single is capable of the upgrade? The most important thing to note is that ALL CAME-Singles purchased after November 1, 2015 have been modified to contain a brand new circuit board that allows for connection of the wireless joystick receiver. CAME-Singles purchased before November 2015, will not have the same board, and hence are not capable of the wireless joystick upgrade.

If you do have a newer generation Single with the modified circuit board, then installation of the wireless remote receiver board is easy! Simply open up the handle, connect the receiver board to its corresponding port, and pair the remote. Full instructions can be found in the video below.

After receiving his CAME-singleAndrew Gerard Media, went out and grabbed some quick test footage with his Sony A7Rii!

The CAME-Single gimbal is perfect for shooters who want a simple system thats easy to balance and provides steady footage. The encoders that are built into the brushless motors allow the CAME-Single to be extremely stable. The max payload that the CAME-Single can handle is about 2.6lbs(1.2kg), which is perfect for mirror-less cameras like the Sony A7S series, Panasonic GH4 and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.

Youtube user, Slashcam, recently uploaded two quick tests he did with the CAME-Single gimbal! Both videos use the CAME-Single, but with different camera setups. The first video uses a Sony A7SII with a FE 3.5-5.6 / 28-70 OSS lens and the second video uses a Panasonic GH4 with a Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 lens.
Each video uses the CAME-Single in different variations. One video focuses on how it performs while you follow a subject and the other video goes through the joystick movements, pan/tilts and holding the CAME-Single as you ride a bike. The CAME-Single is one of the first commercially available 3-axis 32-bit basecam controlled gimbals to offer brushless motors with Encoders.

Check out this video that Darryl Smith posted of him using the CAME-Single with a Panasonic and a Panasonic 8mm f/3.5 ED Fisheye lens!

Although, the video is mostly a test on how the Panasonic GH4 looks when the 4K is down converted to 1080, he does use the CAME-Single gimbal the whole time. The CAME-Single is made to hold camera setups that are no more than 2.6lbs(1.2kg). The encoders that are built into the brushless motors allow the gimbal to be extremely stable and use up less battery than needed. The CAME-Single can operate for up to 20 hours when it's fully charged.

Filmmaker, Tom Antos, recently used a Sony A7sii balanced on the CAME-Single gimbal to film this entire music video! The video follows singer, Anna Cyzon as she walks around the streets of New York. The CAME-Single is perfect for a project that requires a lot of tracking shots, especially if it takes place in crowded areas.

The CAME-Single is small enough to be carried around, but is also strong enough to handle a max payload of 2.6lbs. Tom Antos, also posted a quick making of the music video, which he uploaded the same time as the music video was released. It goes through the creative process and even shows why he decided to shoot the entire music video with the CAME-Single. Watch the making  below!

, posted this quick test video a few days ago of him trying out the Samsung NX-1 camera paired with the CAME-7500 gimbal.

The CAME-7500 is the older version of what is now the CAME-7800 3-axis gimbal. The 7500 gimbal required users to build the gimbal and  required tools to balance the camera on the carriage. Now, most of the gimbals that we offer are tool-less, pre-built and some even have encoders built into the motor (CAME-Single & CAME-Action). The CAME-7800 is a good gimbal for setups that might be too heavy for the CAME-Mini 2 or the CAME-Single. We have a variety of gimbal models that can hold small action cameras(CAME-Action) or bigger setups like a Blackmagic Cinema Camera(CAME-8000).

TheVideoMode.com, posted a  detailed article about their experiences with the CAME-ACTION gimbal for the GoPro camera. Check out the sample footage they uploaded into the article below.

The article is separated into multiple parts that include: the features, in use and the overall verdict of the CAME-ACTION. The CAME-ACTION is designed for the Hero 3, 3+ and 4 GoPro models, along with some other action cameras that have a similar body type. It's completely tool-less, which make using it a breeze, especially when you are in a rush. The encoders make it extremely stable and increases the battery life of the CAME-ACTION when its in use because it allows the gimbal to run on less power.

Recently, Tom Antos, posted this detailed review of the CAME-Single 3-axis gimbal. He does state that he was using a Sony A7s with a big lens that might of exceeded the max payload the CAME-Single can handle, but it still worked well and gave him steady footage. In this video he demos the Single with a Sony NEX-5R.

Tom Antos, goes through great detail on what the CAME-Single comes with and how you would normally setup/balance it. The cool thing about the video is that he actually cuts in some "behind the scenes" footage of a recent shoot he worked on using the CAME-Single. The CAME-Single works great as a portable gimbal that you can easily bring around with you.

Laurent Briere, follows hundreds of youths and adults running in this marathon that has been going on for 28 years. The CAME-Single is lightweight enough for the shooter to run side by side with a subject as they run, walk or jog. The brushless motors with encoders make the CAME-Single gimbal extremely stable and efficient.

Lucent Productions, was able to take the CAME-ACTION gimbal out to the park with his kid and  grab some quick test footage with his GoPro.

The CAME-ACTION is made for shooters who want to get some stable action shots with their GoPro camera. It runs on three rechargeable 16340 batteries , which are small, lightweight and portable. It's made of aluminum alloy and weighs in at 0.66 pounds without the camera and batteries. Since, we introduced the CAME-Single with new encoder technology, the CAME-ACTION also uses brushless motors with encoders, which will decrease the power consumption and increase the overall stability.
