CAME-TV, makers of budget handheld gimbals like the CAME-TV Mini and CAME-TV Single, have added yet another affordable 3-axis handheld gimbal to their lineup called the Came-TV Argo. The new gimbal sports a design reminiscent of the one of the popular DJI Ronin M, with internal cabling, 32bit AlexMOS board with encoders, and a few other tricks up its sleeve. The CAME-TV Argo features a tool-less design and a new 15 hour battery. The new gimbal can take camera-lens combos up to 6.6 pounds (around 3 kilos) making a lot of cameras from the mirrorless Sony A7sII or Panasonic GH4 to large sensor Super 35 camcorders like the Sony FS5 when paired with a pancake lens.
The CAME-TV Argo weighs in at 6 lbs. and also features an integrated 5.8 Ghz video transmitter (standard def) at the bottom of the cradle with a built-in power tap (D-tap) output for powering accessories such as monitors or follow focus units. Check out this informative video from Berlin-based HDVideoShop about the new features of the Argo:
