The Optimus model features encoders and allows for one hand operation, but with the controls and battery now relocated outside of the handle, the single handle can be changed to dual handles. Another exciting feature is that all the motors on the Optimus can rotate a full 360 degrees without limitation for greater range and flexibility during operation.
Vimeo user, Stephane Kiss uploaded this short montage video that shows some of the highlights from last years "Burning Man" event. It was filmed with the CAME-Mini 2 gimbal paired with the Sony A7sII! Stephane, used multiple lenses to shoot the video - The Sony 35mm f1.4, Sony 24-70mm f4 & Sony 10-18mm.
The Mini 2 is completely tool-less, which will make it easier for you to balance your camera or to make minor adjustments. The max payload the CAME-Mini 2 can handle is 2.6 lbs, making it perfect for cameras like the BMPCC, Panasonic GH4 and the Sony A7S/A7R series. The CAME-Mini 2 3-axis gimbal is an extremely portable gimbal that can easily be brought with you to different shoots.
The CAME-Single has a max payload of roughly 2.6 lbs, making it perfect for cameras like the Panasonic GH4, BMPCC and the Sony A7SII/A7RII series. The CAME-Single is equipped with an updated battery that has a higher voltage output, which provides more power and stability to the gimbal. The CAME-Single has three different operating modes that you can cycle through via the button on the side of the handle.
Vimeo user, Gilles Havet uploaded this short video that follows some of the tennis players that were competing at the "International Women's Tournament" in Belgium. Some of the scenes in the video were shot with the CAME-7800 gimbal & CAME-Single! The cameras used were the Panasonic GH4 and Sony a6300.
The Single gimbal is designed to be operated with just one hand. The encoders on the CAME-Single: prevent the motors from losing sync/skipping steps, provides important information about the frame and also decreases the power consumption - increasing the battery life.
Although, the CAME-7800 gimbal is currently unavailable - we advise you to check out our new CAME-ARGO 3-axis gimbal. The CAME-ARGO features a 32 bit Alexmos Board and is completely tool-less, making balancing your camera setup easy and quick. The max payload that the ARGO can handle is about 6.6lbs , which is the same max payload as the 7800 gimbal.
The CAME-Single works as a great portable 3-axis gimbal that can easily be balanced and carried around. The Single has an internal battery that will allow it to operate for up to 20 hours and now the Single comes with the new Dual Gimbal Handles that will give the gimbal operator smoother pan & tilt motions.
The CAME-Optimus is the successor to our very popular CAME-Single 3-axis gimbal. All motors on the Optimus can rotate a full 360 degrees without limitation for greater range and flexibility during operation. The single handle has a built in joystick, but the Optimus will also include a wireless Joystick Remote.
Youtube user, Red Carpet Vlog uploaded this BTS video of him using the CAME-Optimus on a recent wedding shoot! The camera he used with the Optimus was the Sony A7sii paired with the Sony 10-18mm lens.
All motors on the Optimus can rotate a full 360 degrees without limitation for greater range and flexibility during operation. 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 hand grip for the Optimus can be changed to Dual Handles, depending on the camera operator's requirement.
