Featuring tool-less adjustment and a 32-bit Alexmos board, the CAME-TV Argo is a motorized 3-axis handheld gimbal that lets you capture smooth and precise free-floating stabilized camera shots. The gimbal supports loads up to 6.6 lb, making it most suitable for DSLR and mirrorless camera setups, and sports a modular design that allows the gimbal unit to be attached to an included top handle bar assembly for two-handed operation, or to other support devices such as a jib, slider, or drone using a supplied adapter plate. Both handles on the top bar attach via thumbscrews for quick position and angle adjustment, with a center handle useful for low angle shooting or simply carrying the stabilizer between shots.

Gimbal operating mode selection and pan/tilt angle adjustments is performed using a wireless joystick remote. The remote can be mounted directly to the handle bar and placed near one of the handles for thumb control of the joystick, or used detached from the stabilizer by a second operator. As with sled-and-vest-style stabilizers, motorized gimbal systems require balancing. Argo uses a quick release camera plate and index markings for its tool-less position adjustment, making it easier to find optimal balance point and to recall settings for different camera and lens combinations.

A quick release LiPo battery attaches to the gimbal to provide up to 15 hours of power. Beneath the camera baseplate is a 5.8 GHz wireless video transmitter with micro-HDMI input to take the output from your camera and send it to a wireless monitor. Also located beneath the baseplate is a 12V D-tap output to power an optional accessory from the gimbal battery, such as a wireless follow focus motor, which can be mounted using an included single 15mm rod clamp and 3.9" long rod.

    Argo 3-Axis Handheld Gimbal Stabilizer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bang for Buck and oh Sooooo Sweet!!! I was hesitant. Did all the reviews on youtube. Looked at all the comparisons. Asked tech at B&H. Then decided. From all account it is a stellar product. And all accounts - were right. The fact that right out of the box I can balance with ease, and that it has built in wireless transmission, sold it. But it's easy peasy to control and set-up. Very stable imagery. I only have 2 little complaints. The battery casing on mine seems defective - so it doesn't fit well. But I believe a replacement will solve that. Also the HDMI mini to HDMI micro is very fragile. The connector head/ contact came off after a few hours of shooting. (but I figure that a only a couple of dollars to replace). Most of all - I like the fact that I can twist or turn the gimbal to any position that I want, and it will lock in - to quickly rebalance, or to do stabilized a dutch angle for example. Something not easily done with the main competitors. Also - I like the fact that the carry case is just a tad bit bigger than a briefcase. Not like other gimbal cases in it's class that are mammoth in size. So overall... I am a happy happy happy user of the came-tv. It's my first encounter with their products, but I believe that I may be willing to try more of their products based on this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use for DSLR cameras. I use other jimbal's like Nebula and the movie. In a moment to use is many time for calibrate. in this case i calibrate this Jimbal in the first time in almost 20 minutes. Manual no software. i liked very much. its very smother and in not heavy. i recommended for small cameras.
