The new CAME-TV Spry Gimbal has a detachable handle, and the Gimbal Head can be remounted onto an optional battery base. This allows for more creative mounting when you're not working with the Spry handheld. Possible ideas could be used as a bike mount, helmet mount, car mount, etc.

The Spry Gimbal comes with adapters for Smartphones, GoPro, and can support small cameras like the Sony RX100 series. There is a USB remote built into the handle that can control many of Sony camera protocols such as Zoom, Take a Photo, or Start / Stop video recording. Because of the focus on small cameras (but not too small), it could be the best gimbal for the new Sony RX0 camera.

Product Description via Came-tv.com:
The CAME-TV SPRY is our innovative 4-in-1 gimbal that comes with three different heads that can be quickly interchanged to hold a smart phone, GoPro, and point-and-shoot cameras up to 1.1 lbs . When using most Sony cameras (ex: Sony RX100), there are 4 buttons located on the handle that will allow you to control the camera directly such as zooming in out, picture focus, and image capture/video record. The included Bluetooth remote will control an iPhone when coupled with the "BT Shutter" application.

The pan motor can be configured on either side of the camera to provide efficient cable routing and access to either side of the cameras and phone. All motors rotate a full 360 degrees without limitation for greater range and flexibility during operation.

The SPRY Battery Foot is an optional part that includes a larger battery for longer run time and has threaded mounting incorporated in the base to allow mounting. Some creative mounting options could be a skateboard or underslung on a car, the threaded mount allow for mounting to a fixed object.

Hanging with the GearAddix team at a recent visit to PhotoPlus NY 2013, we stopped by the Mastor Tech booth who was showcasing an entire line of motorized gimbal video stabilizers.

The largest Pronghorn PN1 3-Axis version includes joystick controls built into the handle for both Pan/Tilt for single operator mode, or can be used with a second operator controlling the system through an RC Remote.

Three smaller 2-Axis hand held versions ( Sailfish SF1, Greyhound GR-1, and Cheetah CH1 ) all include a joystick for Tilt control (panning done by hand). The smaller versions offered are for the GoPro Hero cameras, Mobile Phones, and for cameras such as the RX100 or similar sized Point-n-Shoot cameras. A LiPo battery built into the handle can be recharged via USB and powers the units for up to 2 hours.

Needless to say Mastor Tech was one of the more popular booth at PhotoPlus NY 2013, so it was difficult to nail down a solid interview. Although we may see more of these coming to market, what was most appealing was the build quality and performance. There are no exposed wires or controller boards, and we would swap various cell phones and digital cameras on the systems and it balanced very quickly. This seems like a very polished finished product for the end-user, but possibly because they already have experience with designing aerial gimbal products.

These products won't be available until 2014 so stay tuned. For now, I would love to hear any questions or comments about what you think of this new product?
