08Mar [Upgraded] CAME 6000 2 Axis Gimbal w/ Side Handles


Tweet
FYi, a few weeks back I did an overview of the CAME 6000 2 Axis Active Stabilized Gimbal. My initial impressions were that the unit worked very well with my Panasonic GH3, but was awkward with only a single top handle. I immediately ‘modded’ my own side handles to the unit.

17Feb BlackMagic Design Cinema Camera on (Unbalanced) 3 Axis Stabilizer Gimbal


Tweet
A few weeks ago, I had a comment-chat if a BMCC can fly on a CAME 5000 gimbal. So four of us guys spent over half an hour trying to stuff the BlackMagic Design Cinema Camera into this CAME 5000 Gimbal, but clearly it was not meant to work. The BMCC is just too wide [...]

Typically i’ll just answer this question by replying with a text comment, but i’m sure it’s still not very clear. Hopefully this article can help visualize a few ways focus can be [...]

04Sep What’s Going On with this BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera?


Tweet
I just recently received two BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Cameras earlier today. So I decided to unbox one and start shooting around, but noticed some very odd lines in the screen. When I played it back on my screen the lines were very apparent. They are so prominent even focus peaking picks up on the vertical [...]
