Vimeo user, aLCk uploaded this promo video for the upcoming Superior FC event . The video was filmed with the CAME-TV Optimus Gimbal paired with the Panasonic GH5 & Panasonic 20mm, Sigma 30mm(with Metabones) and Panasonic 12-32mm lens.
The CAME-Optimus has a brand new frame design that allows the gimbal to be operated completely inverted or underslung. The single handle has a built in joystick, but the Optimus will also include a wireless Joystick Remote. 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 single handle can be changed to Dual Handles depending on the camera operator's requirement.
