@scottfilms busted out his new #cametv #single #gimbal on a recent shoot! He balanced his #Sony #A7sii camera and Sony #55mm lens!
Laurent Lichtenstein, uploaded this teaser trailer for an upcoming French travel show he's directing. In this teaser trailer titled "Mission Hawaii", Laurent, mostly filmed it with the CAME-Single and BMPCC Camera plus a Kowa Prominar 8.5mm lens.
The CAME-Single is extremely portable and can easily be brought with you on location to different shoots. The CAME-Single comes with a custom hard flight case that has foam cut outs inside for the handgrip and frame. The quick release camera plate system makes it easier for you to precisely balance your camera setup or to do some fine-tuning when you're out on a shoot. With the new internal battery design combined with the encoders, the battery life can roughly last 20 hours.
Dan Chung, from newsshooter.com posted this test video and article about his experience with the autofocus feature of the Sony a6300. For the video, he filmed a dance group using the a6300 paired with the CAME-TV Single gimbal.
The CAME-Single is a 3-axis gimbal that is designed to be used with just one hand. The encoders that are built onto the brushless motors make the gimbal more stable and precise while you shoot. On one charge, the CAME-Single can last roughly 20 hours because of the updated internal rechargable battery. The Single has a max payload of about 2.6 lbs, which is perfect for smaller/lightweight camera setups.

A very basic, yet common question that we get is "How do I know when my CAME-Single is done charging?" First off, a full charge can typically be accomplished in about 2-4 hours. Keeping it plugged in any longer can run the risk of overcharging your battery, and causing it to go into a protective sleep mode.
However, as a visual indicator of the battery's charge status, you can look no further than the LED indicator light that is on the charging plug.
When plugged in, a red light on the plug shows that charging is currently in progress. Once full, the light will switch over to green, indicating the battery is completely charged and the gimbal is ready to use.
Many of our newer gimbals such as the CAME-Single, Mini 3, Argo, etc. now come with a wireless remote that allows you to toggle between profiles and control its pan/tilt movements. To charge the remote, you'll simply need a Micro USB cable and plug it into any wall outlet or portable USB charger. These Micro USB cables are very common, as they are the same type that charge many Android smartphones and numerous other mobile accessories.
The CAME-Single is designed with a single handgrip that allows the shooter to use the gimbal with just one hand. The CAME-Single is completely tool-less and has a quick release plate, so that balancing you camera is extremely easy. The new internal battery on the CAME-Single has a higher voltage output, which gives the gimbal more power and stability. There are mounting points on the bottom and on the side of the Single, allowing you to attach accessories like a LED light or a camera monitor.
