Unboxing CAME 7500 Ready To Run 3 Axis Gimbal Stabilizer

Now that CAME-TV is offering up several different gimbal options, the popular question right now is whether to go with the 7000 or the 7500 model. The CAME-TV 7500 model is listed as a 'Ready to Run 3 Axis Gimbal Stabilizer'. Price is just $200 dollars more than the DIY 7000 Kit.

Though it's delivered mostly assembled, many parts are left loose for you to adjust and balance your camera. Once you have your camera balanced, it's a good idea to run through and make sure that every bolt is tightened up. This is VERY CLOSE to the 7000 32 Bit DIY model with a few exceptions. The big difference with the 7500 (as opposed to 7000) is that you don't need to build it yourself.

The CAME 7500 will also come preloaded with a few different profiles that are loaded by clicking on the center of the joystick. [NOTE: The video I share above was an earlier model, so your profiles may be different]. Aside from paying extra for a preconfigured system, they claim the CAME-TV 7500 model is using more powerful motors and also provide a case mounted to the back to protect the control board with an ON/OFF rocker switch. Considering there are not many '32 bit' complete gimbals coming in at this price this is a great addition for those who don't want to build it themselves.

Now just because the system comes assembled or 'Ready to Run', it will still benefit you greatly to have an understanding of the different parts, pieces, and software configurations in case you need to troubleshoot or fine tune for your different applications.

    @mcb311 - Sorry I haven't run into a 'sensor not connected bug'. If a sensor is not detected typically it means there is a problem with the wire. Make sure the wires haven't been damaged. Check the connection at each sensor and make sure it hasn't been pulled out. Make sure there is no damage along any of the wires. If you have a multimeter you can do resistance checks.

    Also make sure the back of sensor is not touching any metal that will cause it to short out. If it is attached to the carbon fiber frame that could also cause a short. Make sure the bare metal is not up against the carbon fiber. Add a small piece of tape to the back if it helps.

    @Emm - I think that would bring me one step closer (knowing with which Firmeware it was shiped)so you just update your gimbal to basecams newest Version ?
    I thought maybe the problem is somehow related to the Firmware version.

    Are you btw aware of that "sensor not connected" "Bug", seems like a few people has encountered this but there is no sollution by now...
    (and sorry for asking so much questions...)
    Do you now what that (Red Led on / Green Led fast blinking) error-code is meaning ?

    @mcb311 - I won't be able to extract the 'firmware' from the board. You have to find and download it from the Basecamelectronics.com website. I'm not even sure what the firmware version is, I would have to see it when i'm connected.

    Thanks for your response, I´m not looking for the Profiles actually (as I have saved them) but for the Firmware the gimbal came with (or maybe I would need an readout from the Eprom ?!) I just try to "reset" everything so itßs like fresh outa the box...does this make sense ?

    You just could send it via E-mail (must be only few Kb ?!)or I could supply you with a dropbox...

    @mcb311 - You can try to contact CAMETV for the profiles, but I'll have to see if I can download the profiles and upload them somewhere. I may not be in the office for a few days though.

    Hi everyone...
    I´ve some big problems with my new Came-7800 Gimbal. After some test (were it work just fine) I calibrated the sensor, powered it up and "nothing" happened. The red LED on the back went on and the green was flashing fast, I wasn´t able to connect to the gimbal just got "error readin profiles" from the GUI (also worked fine before), so I flashed the board with the recovery Firmware and updated the it (to 2.43b6).
    Before that I think there were 2.43b5 on it...

    Now I can connect via the GUI but it says "no sensor connected". I´ve backuped all profiles from Came-TV but would like to "reset" everything.
    Can someone provide me with the Firmware (and everything else) that comes with the Gimbal ?

    Thanks in advance

    @MC - Some of what you're saying doesn't make a lot of sense. I doubt they would literally say "sometimes things break, hope this helps".

    So first question, where did you buy it from? Apparently there are some companies trying to sell gimbals using their name on eBay, and they have made a note about this on their website. Outside of that, let's talk about the gimbal.

    First make sure you are using a fully charged battery. Use the provided charger and let is sit until it's fully charged. These gimbals are programmed to 'not work' when the voltage of the battery is under a certain amount. So if your 12V battery drops down to 10V it may not work. Even trying another dead battery isn't going to help.

    If you want to connect to it, make sure you've downloaded the correct software from Basecamelectronics.com, balance your camera properly and then put the gimbal on some type of stand.

    If you're using a Mac computer you have to also install a Driver. Check out this article: http://gimbal.cheesycam.com/downloading-installing-and-launching-simplebgc-software-mac-osx/.

    Make sure you are using a 'Data' USB Cable. Not the usb cables that are used to charge a GoPro. Although they may look the same, some cables don't have all the pins setup for data, they only have a few pins setup to power 5V and charge a device.

    After installing the driver, launching the software, and using a correct USB cable, you should be able to use the drop down menu on the top left to select a port. Typically it will be the last one on the list. Then hit connect.

    First thing I would check is make sure it shows Profile 1 (top right) and hit the Write Button. Next hit the 'Motors On/OFF' button and see if the motors start responding. Let me know what happens when you get this far, and it would be more helpful if you could share a video showing the product, what the software is showing, and how it is responding (or not).

    Hey...I hope someone can help because CAME TV are as helpful as a brick!! I'm so angry with this 7500 I bought from them.
    1. It arrived and one of the arms was completely broken! Then after plugging in a fully charged battery and setting it up...the thing just beeps, judders for a second then does absolutely nothing! The joystick doesn't work...just 2 blinking red lights on the back!
    Came TV - their response is 'we have national holiday, sometimes things break, hope this helps'!!

    Anyone have any ideas? I have tried a new battery...same deal. I have tried to go into the GUI etc for recalibration but it won't recognise the firmware [com port says wrong serial number].

    I'm getting extremely angry now and feel I've been scammed!

  9. Hey @Emm, Which hard carrying case do you suggest for the Came 7500? Also, do you suggest the calibration holder they sell for $200, or do you think I can use proper light stands?
