After months and months of waiting, the CAME-TV 8000 heavy duty gimbal is finally available for order, in stock, and shipping. For anyone who shoots with a Canon C100 sized camera or larger, your choice for a gimbal under $2K had been limited. The 8000 is now available for just $1980.

While the new CAME-TV 8000 was designed specifically to handle RED, Canon EOS Cinema C100/C300/C500, or BlackMagic Production Cinema Cameras it can still be tuned to work with smaller DSLR systems. Here's a recent video showing it's stability with a Canon 7D DSLR.

Unlike the 7xxx CAME-TV gimbals which share similar parts found on other kits, the 8000 has been exclusively designed completely from the ground up. New product photos have replaced the prototype version on the website. The new images show a completely encased system with no exposed wiring, battery, or motors.

A huge step for CAME-TV gimbals is now the addition of fine tuning tool-less adjustments for quick and accurate balancing. A 15mm rod clamp on the system allows for mounting accessories to your rail set (such as a follow focus). The CAME-TV 8000 unit ships with a Gimbal Stand + Hard Case as well.

Available now for $1980 and additional information can be found at the 8000 3-Axis Gimbal Product page at CAME-TV.com

If you follow this blog, i've somewhat been in tune with several different affordable Gimbal Stabilizers such as the CAME-TV 7000/7500 and Varavon Birdycam2. The simple fact though is that if you wanted to fly any camera larger than a Canon C100 you're most likely looking into the $2999 DJI Ronin. Well CAME-TV has been teasing about a new heavy duty gimbal for a few months. Until recently the new 8000 model was only shown in drawings, but here's an actual demo with a protoype unit by MJIT Berlin.

Keep in mind what we're seeing in the video above is still a protoype unit, but the results so far look very promising. The new images show the CAME-TV 8000 with fine tuning stage, a quick release system, 15mm rail adapter for rod accessories, and a built in joystick (which the Ronin lacks BTW). For a Gimbal capable of carrying a large camera, and with an introductory price $1,000 dollars cheaper than the Ronin, this could be another popular stabilizer in the market.
