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.

David Oastler, posted this detailed review of the CAME-Single 3-axis gimbal. He goes through the balancing process with his Sony A7s and toward the end of the video he shows some test footage that he captured while using the gimbal. (NOTE: David Oastler, does state that there was an audio problem with his mic).

The CAME-Single is a tool-less designed gimbal that is made for one-handed operation. The built in joystick allows you to pan and tilt your camera depending on your shot. To turn on the CAME-Single, you press and hold the button located on the side of the handle. To switch between the three different operating modes, you simple click the same button until the mode  you want is selected.

Ken Lauguico, posted this video that highlights a wedding he shot using the CAME-7500 and CAME-Single 3-axis gimbals. He used two different DSLR cameras, the Canon 6D and the Canon 5Dmkii.
The video has a ton of great tracking shots that follow the bride and the groom as they both get ready for the ceremony. The CAME-Single is  a great one handed gimbal that provides extremely steady footage because of the brushless motors with the new encoder technology. The CAME-Single is great for cameras like the Sony A7sii, Panasonic GH4 or the BMPCC.

Here's a quick informative video on how to check the voltage on your gimbal batteries!

If you happen to have a multi-tester laying around, it would be a good idea to check the batteries you have for your gimbal. You want to make sure your batteries are fully charged before testing the voltage.

Screen Shot 2015-10-30 at 11.10.29 AM

The 18650 batteries for the CAME-TV Mini/Mini 2 and the 16340 batteries for the CAME-ACTION gimbal should be reading at 3.7v or higher. The 3S Lipo Battery for the CAME-7800 and 8000 should be giving you a reading of 11v or higher.

Your card is formatted, talent's in place, and your gimbal is perfectly balanced. And just as you're about to roll camera.... your gimbal's battery dies. But wait? You charged your battery overnight, right? Even so, batteries, just like most things that involve power, have a shelf life.

The best way to avoid this nightmarish scenario is to test your batteries on a regular basis using a voltmeter/multitester. Among the many things it's capable of, a multitester can read the voltage of your battery and let you know if it has enough juice in it to perform. And just as easily, it can let you know if the battery is ready to be replaced.

If you don't own or readily have access to a voltmeter or multitester, then you can bring your battery(ies) into most electronics/repair shops or automotive garages. Most of these businesses will test your batteries for free.

1080 Digital Media, recently uploaded his second test of him using the CAME-Single gimbal. The majority of his first video was how it performed while walking. 1080 Digital Media, states that the main focus on this video was for driving and "following a person" shots. He used a Panasonic GH3 recording at 50fps, but states that Vimeo re-conformed it to 25P.

This is mainly a test for driving shots and following (a person) shots. These 2 areas are the rig's strong points so far.

Since the CAME-Single has brushless motors with encoders, it has the ability to make your driving shots incredibly smooth and more stable.

Recently, Stanly, posted this video of some shots he edited together using his Sony A7s with a Zeiss Loxia 2/50 lens balanced on a CAME-Single.

Even though the video is short, it looks like a very cinematic music video. The beginning shows the main soundcheck, but at the end it transitions directly into the bands live show. The CAME-Single gives the shooter incredibly smooth footage while operating the gimbal with just one hand. The CAME-Single is the first commercially available 3-axis 32-bit basecam controlled gimbal that offers brushless motors with encoders.

CAME-Single Review With Dieter Knuttel

In this video, he jam packed even more test footage of him using the CAME-Single! It's great to see customers going out on the field and gathering a ton of footage with the CAME-Single. Dieter does state in the description "Any stutter you might see does not come from the gimbal but is a 25p on a 30p timeline problem".

Vimeo user, Remo Chapeaublanc, uploaded this quick video of him testing out the CAME-Single Gimbal for the first time with his Sony A7RII and 16mm F/2.8 lens.
The size of the CAME-Single is perfect for mirror-less cameras like the GH4, A7s and A7RII. The quick release plate on the CAME-Single is completely tool-less making balancing your camera on the gimbal a breeze. Due to the encoder technology on the CAME-Single, stabilization is more precise and information about the frame and camera angles are more accurate.

Vimeo user, De Rienzo Films, went out to Trafalgar Square in London and grabbed some shots with his Panasonic GH3 with a 14mm pancake lens balanced on a CAME-Single 3-Axis Gimbal.
The CAME-Single is a handheld gimbal that is made for smaller cameras like the Sony A7s, BMPCC or the Panasonic GH3/GH4. The brushless motors with encoders, prevent the motors from being out of sync and can give you detailed information about the frame and the angle of your camera. The internal rechargeable batteries are fitted inside the handle of the CAME-Single itself, making it easier to plug-in and charge.

Youtube user, DayZeroSurvivors, uploaded this quick test of him putting the CAME-Single through a running test with his Panasonic GH-4 + Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm lens.

The CAME-Single has a larger frame than most pistol-grip style gimbals, allowing you to fully tilt up and down. The brushless motors are also significantly larger and have encoders built in them for more accurate motor readings. The CAME-Single has a run time of about 20 hours when the battery is fully charged.
