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.

Vimeo user, Luigi De Vita, uploaded this short clip of a video he shot using the CAME-Single gimbal and his Sony A7SII camera + a Sony zeiss 24-70mm f4 lens.

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.

If you are unsure of which software version you should use, then click here.

Vimeo user, Media Collaboratory, uploaded this quick video of him grabbing some footage with his new CAME-TV Single gimbal. His camera setup was a Panasonic GH-4 with a Lumix G 14mm f/2.5 ASPH II lens and it was all shot in V-Log.
The CAME-Single is designed to be portable and easy to use with just one hand. It's completely tool-less, so that there's no hassle balancing or making minor adjustment while your camera is on the gimbal itself. There are two main pieces of the CAME-Single - the handle and the frame, both of which have their own padded cut out in the hard case. Having the gimbal in two pieces allows the shooter to be able to quickly break it down and bring it to different shooting locations. The max payload of the CAME-Single is about 2.6 lbs and can work with lightweight mirror-less camera setups.

Just going to put this out there right now... DO NOT UPGRADE YOUR FIRMWARE, no matter what the SimpleBGC GUI screen tells you. Doing so will completely wipe out your board and can potentially cause irreversible malfunction to your gimbal. And even worse, this course of events runs you the risk of voiding your warranty.

If you are attempting to connect to the SimpleBGC software for the first time, and you receive a pop-up message telling you that you should upgrade your firmware because of a "board vs. GUI mismatch" (as seen below), then it's best that you simply use a different version of the software, rather than upgrade your firmware. When this happens, simply disconnect and then quit out of the current SimpleBGC that you are using and then download the software version that is closest to the firmware version that the pop-up message is recommending.


So in the case shown above, we connected our gimbal to SimpleBGC GUI version 2.43 b9. However, the gimbal's internal control board has been programmed with a software version using firmware 2.50 b2, which is obviously higher than the GUI software that we are attempting to use (v2.43 b9). So as stated earlier, disconnect & quit out of the 2.43 b9 software, and then download and launch the version of the SimpleBGC GUI that is closest in number to the recommended firmware, which in this case would be 2.50 b3.


You should be able to connect successfully this time around with your settings completely intact.
