MrCheesycam, uploaded this detailed overview on the new CAME-TV ARGO gimbal were he unboxes, balances and goes through some of the operating modes. The camera he balanced on the ARGO was his Panasonic GH4 and Sigma 20mm f/1.8 lens.
All the motors on the brand new CAME-TV ARGO are equipped with encoders, which makes the gimbal perform more accurately and precise. It comes with a pre-calibrated 32-bit ALEXMOS board and a wireless joystick that you can control and switch to different operating modes. The ARGO comes with a hard case that can fit all the pieces of the gimbal and also the carbon fiber foldable stand.
Brandon Rice Films, shared this wonderfully shot video called "Adrienne + Sean - A Love Story", which was filmed with the CAME-TV Mini 2 gimbal balanced for a Panasonic GH4 camera plus a Rokinon 12mm lens.
The CAME-Mini 2 is an extremely portable gimbal that has a max payload of about 2.6 lbs. It's perfect for lightweight micro four-thirds/mirror-less camera setups, just like the setup that Brandon Rice Films used for this video. The Mini 2 comes with a padded carrying case and a balance stand, which can also fit in the case when it is broken down. Balancing your camera setup on the Mini 2 is made easy because it's completely tool-less and any micro balancing adjustment to the frame can be done practically on the fly.
HDVideshop Berlin, uploaded this quick overview of our new CAME-ARGO 3-axis gimbal. The video goes over the main features of the ARGO and how easy it is to setup. In the beginning of the video, he has a Sony A7s with a Zeiss 24-70mm F/4 lens balanced on the CAME-ARGO.
The CAME-ARGO features a 32 bit Alexmos board and is completely tool-less, which makes balancing your camera on the gimbal a breeze. A wireless remote is included with the CAME-ARGO, which allows you to control the gimbal from a distance and also switch to different operating modes. There is a D-Tap output on the bottom of the gimbals frame, allowing you to power accessories like a wireless follow focus.
In the video, the CAME-Single is used for tracking the subject as he walks toward the van before ultimately getting in it. The van then drives off and we slowly follow as it starts to leave the parking garage. With a max payload of 2.6 lbs, the CAME-Single is designed to be portable, easy to balance and used with just one-hand. The encoders on the CAME-Single enhances the gimbals performance by preventing the motors from losing sync, increasing the torque/stability and decreasing the power consumption - allowing the gimbal to last longer.
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.
It has been brought to our attention that SimpleBGC GUI version 2.55 b3 is no longer available on the Basecam Electronics website. Since this software is developed externally by a third party company, we have no control over its availability through that site.
However, we know that many of you have CAME-TV gimbals that require this particular version of the software (and associated firmware). So we will provide you with a download link to the 2.55 b3 GUI version by clicking here.
