Youtube user, JBF (Johnnyboy Films), recently uploaded this fanmade music video he shot for the song "Everything" by the band Black Skirts. It was shot using the CAME-Single Gimbal and the Panasonic G7! He also mentioned that he used three different lenses - the Lumix 12-35mm f2.8, Lumix 20mm f1.7 and the Sigma 17-50mm with a Micro four-thirds adapter.
The CAME-Single is a 3-axis basecam controlled gimbal that is designed to be used with one hand. It has a net weight of of about 1.2kg(roughly 2.6lbs), making it easy to carry around with you on different types of shoots. The CAME-Single is great for smaller setups that don't exceed 2.6 lbs - like mirror-less cameras such as the BMPCC, Panasonic GH-4 and the Sony A7S/A7RII cameras. It has a built-in joystick that can easily be used with your index finger for panning and tilting to achieve multiple types of camera shots. The new encoder technology that are built-in the brushless motors offer more stability, increases torque and decreases the power consumption - making the gimbal's battery life last longer.
Mimicking the success of the CAME-ACTION Gimbal for GoPros, the new CAME-ACTION 2 is designed with the same encoder technology offering unparalleled performance and stability for Smartphones like the iPhone 6 or 6s.
The CAME-ACTION 2 is lightweight and extremely portable - constructed from an Aluminum alloy and weighs in at a very light 300 grams / 0.66 pounds (without the battery and camera) and is compatible with the iPhone. Like the CAME-ACTION for the GoPro, the CAME-ACTION 2 is 3-axis and has a 32-bit board with encoders. The CAME-ACTION 2 is now available for pre-order and will start shipping the pre-orders in March 2016.
Vimeo user, SkyKapture, uploaded this wonderfully shot video of his group trying out a new chairlift that opened up at the Kirchdorf Ski Resort in Tirol, Austria. He shot the entire video with just his Panasonic GH4 with a Lumix G 14-140mm zoom 1:3.5-5.6 and the CAME-Mini 2 gimbal, all while he was riding on a snowboard!
The CAME-Mini 2 is a 3-axis gimbal that is extremely compact and entirely tool-less. All the electronics and wiring are enclosed through the frame, so there are no hanging wires in the way while you use it. It takes four rechargeable 18650 batteries that are inserted into the horizontal cross bar of the Mini 2. The gimbal comes with a custom molded carrying case, making it easier to transport while on location for a shoot.
Stein Olsen, posted this short test of his first try using the CAME-Single gimbal. It was shot in Norway and he used a Sony A7SII with a Zeiss 16-35 f4 Lens.
The encoders on the CAME-Single increase the torque, stabilization and helps give the gimbal a longer battery life. The CAME-Single itself weighs about 1.2kg and can carry mirror-less cameras like the BMPCC, Sony A7S/A7R cameras and the Panasonic GH4. There are three different mounting points on the grip itself - (2) 1/4-20" and (1) 3/8". The mounting points will allow the shooter to mount a monitor, microphone, tripod stand or even attach the CAME-Single to a jib. The joystick is incredibly smooth to use, giving you the option to pan and tilt as you use the CAME-Single.

Here is a Parallax Slider that provides automatic panning to track a subject. The innovative auto panning system is built into this lightweight carbon fiber slider which makes setup quick and transporting a breeze.
Roger Hall, from CameralandNL, took out his CAME-Single gimbal with his Sony A7S + the Sony 28-70mm f/3.6-5.7 lens and grabbed some awesome footage at his local airport!
The video not only shows footage from his camera, but also some BTS shots of Roger Hall using the CAME-Single. The battery life on the CAME-Single can operate for up to 20 hours due to the updated internal rechargeable batteries. The CAME-Single offers full 3-axis stabilization and is incredibly easy to balance for setups that are no more than 2.6 lbs. The size of the CAME-Single is perfect for mirror-less cameras such as the Panasonic GH4, Sony A7s /A7RII, and BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Cameras.
Laurent BRIERE, follows French ultra trail runner, Yoann Stuck in this documentary style video called "Town To Trail". In the video Laurent Briere used the CAME-Single paired with his Panasonic GH-4 and 12-35mm F2.8 lens.
The CAME-Single is perfect for these types of shots that require a lot of tracking and movement. The CAME-Single has a max payload of about 2.6 lbs, making it perfect for mirror-less cameras. The pieces all fit into one carrying case, which make it extremely portable and easy to carry around between locations. The CAME-Single has internal rechargeable batteries that are built into the hand grip, giving the CAME-Single more power and stability due to a higher voltage output.
