The Came-Prophet is the successor to the very successful Came-Argo gimbal. Both the Prophet and the Argo are designed to support small to medium sized DSLRs with a maximum payload of 6.6 lbs (3 kg). However while the Argo contains a dedicated 2-handed setup, the Prophet comes with a single handed pistol grip handle, but with the option to use it with compatible two-handed accessories such as the dual handle.
The updated frame design also allows for the Prophet Gimbal to be operated completely inverted or underslung. The pan motor can be configured on either side of the camera to provide efficient cable routing and access to either side of the camera. All motors rotate a full 360 degrees without limitation for greater range and flexibility during operation.
The Prophet model also features encoders that help extend battery running time and allows quick and easy calibration. The battery life can be up to 10 hours on a single charge. The single handle has a built in Joystick. The CAME-Prophet has a quick release camera plate along with tool-less adjustments for easy and fast camera balancing that is compatible with the Manfrotto 501PL plate.
The Prophet battery is compatible with the widely available Sony BP-U30.
