I've watched Tom Antos's review on CAME 7000 gimbal. I was in a market for stabilzer and never though of 3 axis gimbal because they are usually expensive. However, this one is just under $1k

The basic features are:
3k carbon fiber gimbal
3-axis AlexMos controller
Battery and charger
one BGM5208-200T-12 and two BGM5208-75 motor

I've seached ebay and all these three motors and a board would come out maximum price of $400 + $200 the shell from came-tv would be total of $600? so would diy be better cost with the same part and models? maybe I have to add $100 for batteris and controller.

Would this hold 5dmk2 and tamron 24-70?

I'm curious if this actually performs better than a Merlin/blackbird/glide​cam type of device.

Hi everyone, I took the time and compiled together a full page of references for you to read on if you are interested in assembling your own 3-Axis Brushless Gimbal, I decided to go with Came-7000 from Came-tv.com because their product is sturdy, their customer service is good, and I got the kit within 3 days. Even cinematographer Tom Antos feels this is the best within the price range (under $1k).

So if you plan to build your own gimbal, consider using this page as reference.

Hey, I've watched your films on youtube already :) Nicely done on the review. What is the PID setup for your gimbal? Also what and where can we buy the extra battery?
