CAME-Single – A More Intelligent Lightweight 3 Axis Gimbal

CAME-TV showed us the new CAME-Single, a lightweight 3 axis gimbal with intelligent motors for one-handed operation.

Compared to similar popular lightweight 3 axis gimbal stabilizers, the CAME-Single is actually one of the first commercially available “32bit basecam” controlled gimbals, which offers brushless motors with so called “encoder” technology.

According to CAME-TV this new type of gimbal design “prevents motors from losing synchronization and skipping steps, provides important information about frame and camera angles, decreases power consumption (longer battery life), increases Torque, increases precision of stabilization, and more.​”

The CAME-Single is completely tool-less adjustable. It features a joy-stick, which controls the camera movement. The Gimbal has 3 different modes:

  • Follow Mode, which is always on.
  • Follow Mode is off in the pitch axis, but on in the yaw axis
  • Both pitch and yaw axis are off – the camera stays in the same place.

The batteries are embedded in the handgrip of the gimbal and last up to 20 hours, but cannot be replaced.

The CAME-Single 3-Axis Gimbal is available now and costs $988.

The joystick is cool. Wish my Nebula 4000 had it.

I really want to get this. I wonder if it’s possible to use this with a steadicam arm/vest system so you can really run and gun with it all day.

i wonder how much weight it could carry.
the nebula would have problems with heavier lenses.
so could this one here become an alternative?

According to their website the max payload is 1.2kg (2.6 lbs), which is the same weight as the rig itself. So a maxed out rig would weigh roughly 5 pounds.

What do you mean it’s “actually” one of the first available? As opposed to what other kind of non-actual availability? Do you mean it’s one of the first available?
