At the IBC show Came-TV were showing a new accessory for the their popular Optimus brushless gimbal. The new adapter plate allows the mounting of the gimbal to tripods, car mounts, jibs or any other suitable platform via regular mounting screws. This increases the versatility of the gimbal and essentially turns it into a mini remote controlled head. The competing DJI Ronin series had this mounting option early on, but its good to see Came-TV adding this function to the Optimus as well.
The adapter consists of two parts. A round docking connector that replaces the Optimus handgrip, and a quick release plate that the docking connector attaches to. Swapping between handheld and mounted configurations takes seconds. Being able to move the gimbal between different setups in a hurry should be great for solo shooters looking to work quickly.
