Vimeo user, Simon Shasha, was lucky enough to be chosen by Blackmagic to test their Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera before it hits the shelves. The video is beautifully shot and Simon, actually used two CAME-TV products to shoot the video - the CAME-Single and the new CAME-TV Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera Cage plus a Lumix 12-35mm lens.
The CAME-Single is a 3-axis gimbal that is designed to be portable and extremely steady due to the new encoder technology that has been implemented on the gimbal. It's completely tool-less, making it easy to balance and has a max payload of about 2.6 lbs. Simon, was also kind enough to post some pictures of his setup with the CAME-Single and the BMMCC.
The newly designed CAME-TV BMMCC Cage is made to fit the new Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera perfectly. All the buttons on the BMMCC are all easily accessible and it comes with a 15mm rod system. Not only does it come with a solid top handle, but it also comes with a wooden side handle that makes it more comfortable to hold. Take a look at his setup with the CAME-TV BMMCC Cage.

Vimeo user, Media Collaboratory, uploaded this quick video of him grabbing some footage with his new CAME-TV Single gimbal. His camera setup was a Panasonic GH-4 with a Lumix G 14mm f/2.5 ASPH II lens and it was all shot in V-Log.
The CAME-Single is designed to be portable and easy to use with just one hand. It's completely tool-less, so that there's no hassle balancing or making minor adjustment while your camera is on the gimbal itself. There are two main pieces of the CAME-Single - the handle and the frame, both of which have their own padded cut out in the hard case. Having the gimbal in two pieces allows the shooter to be able to quickly break it down and bring it to different shooting locations. The max payload of the CAME-Single is about 2.6 lbs and can work with lightweight mirror-less camera setups.
The CAME-Mini 2 is completely tool-less and has a sleek/compact body, making it extremely easy to carry around and hold. It's designed for compact setups for cameras like the Panasonic GH-4, BMPCC, Sony A7S and other mirror-less type cameras. The custom molded carrying case that the Mini 2 comes in, provides protection when you need to take the gimbal with you to different locations.The horizontal crossbar on the Mini 2 holds the four rechargeable 18650 batteries that power the gimbal.

TG Film & Photo, uploaded this test of him following his dog with the CAME-Single gimbal. He balanced his Sony A7SII with a Zeiss 16-35mm lens.
The CAME-Single is a one-handed basecam designed gimbal that utilizes encoder technology to increase the stability of the gimbal. The batteries are internal rechargeable batteries that can last up to 20 hours. The CAME-Single can hold camera setups that don't exceed 2.6 lbs, so its perfect for mirror-less cameras that are lightweight. In the first test video he uploaded, he was walking down a wobbly pontoon in the water to see if any of the bounce can be seen in the footage. Watch the video below! He also states that he didn't add any post-stabilization.
Vimeo user, Liszön, recently used the CAME-Mini 2 gimbal to shoot a music video for the song "Little War" by the band Spy From Moscow. It was shot using two BMPCC cameras and he would switch between three different lenses. Liszon, states that his Mini 2 setup used solely a Samyang 12mm F2 lens with his BMPCC and for the other handheld shots he used a Tamron 17-50mm and a Sigma 30mm.
The CAME-Mini 2 is completely tool-less and gives the shooter three different profiles to use. Profile 1 - enables follow mode on the pan and tilt, Profile 2 - allows follow mode on the pan (not the tilt) and Profile 3 - disables follow mode on the pan and tilt. All of the wiring and electronics are all completely enclosed in the frame of the CAME-Mini 2, which will prevent any wires from getting in the way while the gimbal is in use.
Vimeo user, PanoVerino, uploaded this quick video that he shot while he was on a trip over the weekend. All the aerials were shot with a DJI Phantom 3 and all the ground shots were filmed using the CAME-Single gimbal with his Sony A7SmkII + Sony 16-35mm F4 lens.
The CAME-Single provides the shooter with incredible stability, while also being extremely portable. It comes packed in a hard case with foam padding on the inside, making sure that the CAME-Single doesn't get damaged when you bring it to multiple shoots. Balancing your camera on the CAME-Single is easy due to the tool-less design and the quick release camera plate. The CAME-Single has a larger frame than most pistol-grip gimbals, allowing you to fully tilt the camera up and down.

Vimeo user, SkyKapture, uploaded this wonderfully shot video of his group trying out a new chairlift that opened up at the Kirchdorf Ski Resort in Tirol, Austria. He shot the entire video with just his Panasonic GH4 with a Lumix G 14-140mm zoom 1:3.5-5.6 and the CAME-Mini 2 gimbal, all while he was riding on a snowboard!
The CAME-Mini 2 is a 3-axis gimbal that is extremely compact and entirely tool-less. All the electronics and wiring are enclosed through the frame, so there are no hanging wires in the way while you use it. It takes four rechargeable 18650 batteries that are inserted into the horizontal cross bar of the Mini 2. The gimbal comes with a custom molded carrying case, making it easier to transport while on location for a shoot.
Stein Olsen, posted this short test of his first try using the CAME-Single gimbal. It was shot in Norway and he used a Sony A7SII with a Zeiss 16-35 f4 Lens.
The encoders on the CAME-Single increase the torque, stabilization and helps give the gimbal a longer battery life. The CAME-Single itself weighs about 1.2kg and can carry mirror-less cameras like the BMPCC, Sony A7S/A7R cameras and the Panasonic GH4. There are three different mounting points on the grip itself - (2) 1/4-20" and (1) 3/8". The mounting points will allow the shooter to mount a monitor, microphone, tripod stand or even attach the CAME-Single to a jib. The joystick is incredibly smooth to use, giving you the option to pan and tilt as you use the CAME-Single.
Roger Hall, from CameralandNL, took out his CAME-Single gimbal with his Sony A7S + the Sony 28-70mm f/3.6-5.7 lens and grabbed some awesome footage at his local airport!
The video not only shows footage from his camera, but also some BTS shots of Roger Hall using the CAME-Single. The battery life on the CAME-Single can operate for up to 20 hours due to the updated internal rechargeable batteries. The CAME-Single offers full 3-axis stabilization and is incredibly easy to balance for setups that are no more than 2.6 lbs. The size of the CAME-Single is perfect for mirror-less cameras such as the Panasonic GH4, Sony A7s /A7RII, and BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Cameras.
