CAME-TV CAME-ARGO Overview

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.

question

Hi,1. I'm after a 3 axis gimbal with detachable handles as I may want to run and gun my work if need be and at other times swap back to the handles. I'd like the ability to use the rig with a remote and a follow focus. 2. The gear it will swing will vary from a BMPCC 4K with a Canon 24-79/2.8 lens, to a possible EVA1 with same lens and a Atamos Shogun Inferno monitor and mic. 2. Are any of these rigs CF or just all Alum? 4. What do you suggest re above? Thanks, James
Asked by: James
The 2 outer, removable parts of the handle are Carbon Fiber, everything else is Aluminum. I got the cage for this gimbal and it also Aluminum.The gimbal is also equipped with a 15mm rod so you can install follow focus.

question

Will this work with fs5?
Asked by: Walter B.
I have heard it does fit the Sony Fs5! Also Came just released a V mount battery adapter. That will remove the battery from the camera. Making it easier to balance.

question

What happens if the wireless remote runs out of batteries during a shoot?
Asked by: Charles H.
According to customers who have used the Argo the included remote control will last a very long time, if not all day, on a single charge. You should not encounter an issue with the battery running out on the remote. If it does you'd need to recharge it and you'd still be able to operate the gimbal without the remote control.

question

Does this has a follow focus?
Asked by: Anonymous
I'm afraid not, this unit does not have follow focus included. It may be possible to mount a follow focus system to this stabilizer, but you will need to keep the total load below 6.6 pounds.
