Vimeo user, , posted this quick video of him using the CAME-Single with his Sony A7s camera and Sony 24-70mm lens.

The CAME-Single gimbal is the first commercially available basecam controlled gimbal that offers brushless motors with encoders. Encoders are usually used in robotics to get extremely accurate monitoring of the positions of the motors. The CAME-Single is tool-less, making it easy to balance your camera while it's on the gimbal.

Youtube user, Ed Rakel, posted this quick video of him using his new CAME-Single Gimbal with a Panasonic GH-4 + Olympus 12 mm f2.0.
The CAME-Single is designed around the idea of being able to operate a gimbal with just one hand. It's 3-axis with a 32-bit board and the brushless motors have encoders, making it the first basecam controlled gimbal on the market with encoders. The max payload the CAME-Single can handle is 2.6lbs and is designed for smaller cameras like the Sony A7s, Panasonic GH4 or the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.

Scotty Ray from Satostudiogear, posted a video a little bit ago of his hike up the famous "Half Dome" in Yosemite National Park. He recently uploaded this video of his review of the CAME-Single and mentions how he was able to pull off some of the camera shots he was able to capture in his Yosemite video.

"It was awesome to be able to pull a gimbal out of your backpack and have it up and running in 30 seconds... I also attached the Gimbal to the top of my Tripod by removing the manfrotto head. This is useful for shots you can't normally reach, or over tall cliffs " -Scotty Ray

Sean J Vincent, posted this detailed review on the CAME-Mini 2 Gimbal after using the gimbal on a current web series he's working on.

The CAME-Mini 2 is a completely tool-less 32-bit 3-axis gimbal with dual IMU sensors that can hold camera setups that are no more than 1kg(roughly, 2.2 pounds). It's powered by four rechargeable 18650 batteries that are placed in the horizontal cross bar of the Mini 2. A new "Stop Ring" has beed added to the Mini 2, preventing the roll motor from over rotating, which may cause the internal wires to become tangled.

In this video, Laurent Briere, used the CAME-Single to shoot this video that highlights a marathon at the royal city of Blois!
That CAME-Single is a 3-axis 32-bit basecam controlled gimbal that is completely tool-less, making it extremely easy to balance your camera. Currently, the CAME-Single is the first basecam controlled gimbal to offer brushless motors with encoders for highly accurate readings of the motors position. The sixth round of pre-orders are currently being accepted and should be shipping out around September 20, 2015.

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.

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.

Initially, you can download any version of the SimpleBGC software to connect to your gimbal. After your first successful connection, look at the version of the firmware on the screen (shown in green below). 

simplebgu_firmware_

Once you have verified the firmware version, you can go back and download the correct GUI version to match your firmware.

Typically, you will want the the software version whose number is equal or lower than the firmware version. For example, in the example above, since your gimbal has been programmed with a 2.56 b9 firmware, you will want to find a SimpleBGC software version that is equal or slightly lower than 2.56 b9. In this case, the closest software version available is 2.56 b7. You should always use the same GUI when configuring your gimbal. And most importantly, NEVER upgrade your firmware!!!

Download link for the SimpleBGC GUI software can be found here.

Youtube user, Yakir Yahish, posted a new video of him testing out the CAME-Single Gimbal at a Church in Israel.

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.

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."
-Scotty Ray

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.
