Youtube user, Matthew Buckman uploaded this quick review on our CAME-TV Single Gimbal. Matthew, recently took our CAME-Single to France were he used it to film a 3-day event at the beautiful Chateau Vaux-Le-Vicomte. Make sure to read the full review on the article he posted here.
He used two different setups with our CAME-Single to film the event. His first setup was the Sony A7RII with a Sony 16-70mm lens and his second setup was with the Sony A7SII with a Zeiss Loxia 21mm lens.
So overall, I absolutely loved shooting with the Came-Single paired with my a7-series cameras. The a7rII and a7sii have the in-camera stabilization that helps smooth things out even a bit more. And I shot everything on the gimbal in 4K so I have plenty of room for the Warp Stabilizer to work with. I don't know how many people out there were like me and had stuck with their Glidecam because they never got comfortable on a MOVI or Ronin, but if there are any of you out there, you may want to give this or the upcoming Optimus a try.

Johnnie Behiri from Cinema5D, passed by our booth at NAB 2016 and talked to us about some of the new products we were showcasing at the convention. This interview is all about our new CAME-TV Accordion Jib!
The CAME-Accordion features an extending scissor arm that puts the camera right where you need it. The Accordion motion allows the arm to extend 4.7 Meters (15 feet) out and then retract back in. The drive is powered by a V-Mount battery (Not included) and is controlled by a rocker switch. The max payload is 15Kg (33 lbs) and works well when it's paired with our Argo, Prodigy or Mini 3 gimbal.
The CAME Optimus has a new frame design, which allows the gimbal to be operated completely inverted or underslung. The single handle has a built in Joystick, but the Optimus will also include a wireless Joystick Remote and on a single charge the Optimus can run up to 10 hours. All the motors on the Optimus can rotate a full 360º without any limitation, giving the gimbal greater range and flexibility.
The CAME-Optimus is the successor to our very successful CAME-SINGLE gimbal. The Optimus model also features encoders and allows for one hand operation, but with all of the controls and battery now relocated outside of the handle, the Single handle can be changed to Dual Handles depending on the camera operator's requirement. All motors on the Optimus rotate a full 360 degrees without limitation for greater range and flexibility during operation.
The CAME-Single is a 3-axis 32-bit gimbal that is designed to be used with just one hand. The Single comes with encoders built into the motors, which prevents the motors from losing sync, skipping steps and it decreases power consumption - giving the gimbal a longer battery life. The Dual Gimbal Handles provide gimbal operators smooth camera panning and tilt motions.The handles can also be configured to act as a stand when the handles are positioned right angled to the cross bar.
@stefangelion hard at play!
New project on the go

BlackStunt Prod, filmed his projects with the Canon 70D with multiple lenses: the Canon 10-22mm, Canon 50mm f1.8 and a the Canon 24-70mm f2.8. He does mention that he also used a handheld stabilizer for some of the other shots. The CAME-ARGO features a 32 bit Alexmos board and is completely tool-less. All of the motors are equipped with encoders, which increases the overall performance of the ARGO and makes the battery last a lot longer.
The entire top handle bar can easily be separated from the gimbal, which than can be mounted to other devices like a crane, slider or drone with the included adapter plate.
