Tell us a little about yourself and the videos you create.
I moved from being a producer and engineer in the music business to being a director about 8 years ago. I’ve directed features, music videos and commercials and i write for Digital FilmMaker magazine in the UK as well as my own blog www.seanjvincent.com
How did you decide on choosing our CAME-TV Mini 2?
I was looking for a small and light gimbal to use with a GH4 for a Sci-Fi series called ‘Paradox’ i shot at the end of last summer. The Mini2 was the best of the ones i tried.
Do you use the CAME-TV Mini 2 often?
I use it on almost every job i do now. It’s so easy to use and i love how light it is.
What is your typical camera setup when using our CAME-TV Mini 2?
I use it with either a GH4 or A7S and always with my Atomos Shogun mounted on the top. I have modified my Mini2 by adding a much bigger top handle and a suspended microphone mount as well as an articulated monitor mount for my Shogun.
What kind of style do you typically try to aim for when shooting videos?
It depends on the project. I always like to bring a cinematic style to everything i do.
Would you recommend the CAME-TV Mini 2 to other videographers/shooters?
I would definitely recommend the Mini2. It’s so quick and easy to set up. I love the tool-less design.
How often do you go out and shoot videos?
Several times a week i’m shooting something. If it’s not an actual project i’m working on, i’ll be out shooting tests of some kind.
What do you like best about the CAME-TV Mini 2?
It’s easy to use, very light and i don’t need to carry any tools to use it.
Where does your inspiration to shoot videos come from?
Again, it depends on the project. For the ‘Mission 7’ project, i wanted to bring a cinematic action movie style to what is usually a more corporate type of project.
What is your favorite type of shot you like to achieve?
Flowing gimbal shots are always very satisfying to use….but i love any kind of shot that serves the story i am trying to tell.
Is there anything else you would like to share about your CAME-TV Mini 2?
The batteries last ages and i carry a spare set with me all the time. It’s really easy to shoot all day with it… and that’s not easy on most gimbals.
I want to try some CameTV LED lights next!
Currently, the CAME-Mini 2 is out of stock but make sure you click the image below to see all of our "Mini" gimbal products! Also, sign up for our newsletter to receive updates and information on any new products we release.
Jeff Estanislao, recently uploaded this wedding video he shot with the CAME-Single gimbal! He states that all the tracking/floating shots were filmed with the Single balanced for his Sony A7S and Sony 10-18mm F4 lens.
The CAME-Single is a solid one-hand designed gimbal that is made for cameras like the Panasonic GH4, Sony A7Sii/A7Rii series cameras and the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. The whole gimbal(including parts) fit in a protective portable hard case. The interior of the hard case has foam cut-outs that protect the gimbal and makes sure everything is kept in place. The CAME-Single has three different operating modes that you can cycle through via the button on the side of the handle.
If you are already in contact with a CAME-TV support associate regarding a problem or concern with your product, then we recommend sending videos in 1 of the 4 ways listed below. In the video itself, you can simply shoot it with your smartphone and through your POV (or while mounted on a tripod). It is easiest for us to diagnose and troubleshoot a problem remotely if we see exactly what you see.
(Ex: If you are reporting a problem with a shaking gimbal, shoot the video so we see the gimbal in the shot. Do not send a video from the gimbal camera's point of view).
1. Unlisted YouTube Video - Please upload a video to YouTube, save it as Unlisted and then send us the link.
2. DropBox shareable link - Simply upload the video to your DropBox account and provide us with a shareable link.
3. Vimeo Link (Password Protected) - If you have a Vimeo account, you can upload the video and encrypt it with a password for external viewing. You can then send us the video link along with the password that unlocks the viewing restrictions so we can view it on our end.
4. WeTransfer.com Digi-Delivery - If you do not own or have access to any of the accounts listed above, then you can send us your movies for free using WeTransfer.com. You can send multiple files up to 2GB per email for free and no account or membership is needed.
Why do I need to send a video for support?
- First and foremost, by giving our technical staff a first hand look at the issue that you are reporting, they may be able to recognize the problem more easily and in turn provide a timely solution.
- In the past, there have been incidents where customers have presented false claims of product malfunction/defect in order to receive a replacement for their product (which in truth was not defective). Providing a video is a way to show us and confirm that there indeed a manufacturing flaw with an item that is in need of support and/or repair.
Can I just send the video as an email attachment?
- We'd prefer that you DO NOT send videos through email attachments for several reasons.
1) Our support team uses a 3rd party email ticketing/organization system that limits all attachments to only 7mb. Most videos usually are larger in file size and will not be transmitted successfully.
2) Our email software is very sensitive in its security features, and at its discretion, will put suspicious emails with attachments into a spam/junk mail folder, which we likely will not be able to immediately see.
Went back to Sackville School yesterday to film @andytwyman s second music video. The cast were pretty lifeless! #sentientvisuals #musicvideo #cametv #filmmaking via Instagram http://ift.tt/1UPgRlM
Mike Smith, from Boxhead Media, uploaded this mini-documentary about UK based drum teacher, Simon Greenhill(aka Daddy Funk). The video features student testimonials and some drumming footage from Simon Greenhill himself. Mike Smith, shot a majority of the footage with the CAME-Single and his Panasonic GH4 balanced with a Lumix 12-35mm lens.
The CAME-Single is a one-handed portable gimbal that has a max payload of about 2.6 lbs. It's completely tool-less, making the balancing process a breeze out of the box. The solid hand grip is also where the updated internal battery is located. The new internal battery allows the CAME-Single to last up to 20 hours. The bottom of the CAME-Single has mounting points, so you can attach it to a jib or attach a small tripod stand.
All set up earlier for @itsrilloh 's new music video with @lil_ill2100 testing out my new @cametv 7800 3 axis gimbal with my @sonyalpha #sonya7 and #nikkor #28mm along side my #djiphantom3 for aerial work!!! #vitographyy#nikon #cametv #cametv7800 #pelican1600 #musicvideo #fontana #itsrhillo #sonyalpha #quadcopter #drone #aerialfootage # via Instagram http://ift.tt/22AKV7t

So now there's a 4th Axis of stabilization on the @cametv #ARGO #Gimbal mounted to the #cametv #Elastix. It's like a single ISO steadicam arm mounted underneath. Haven't tried it yet, but the idea of stabilizing up/down movement seems sound. I think it also works directly with a Ronin-M since the dovetail adapter is similar. via Instagram http://ift.tt/1R1QgRp
