Swiftcam M4 broken after 2 days :
Published on Apr 30, 2018
When I went to japan, this video was shot on my 2nd days in NARA PARK with swiftcam M4 + tripod mount + SONY AS300R + adapter + weight balancer.
How I used this gimbal?
I charged the swiftcam M4 by using powerbank, and from Swiftcam m4, I put usb to Sony AS300R. I used it like that for the whole day.
But on my 2nd days, after using for 1 hour, the Swiftcam suddenly broken as can you see on this video.
There was burn smell from 2nd motor (dinamo) and the other is nothing. so when I press the power, yes it can power on. but nothing is working.
after I send it to the seller in Hongkong, they said the PCB was burn out because I cut the cable.
but does it make sense? if the cable problem, then the PCB will be burn out as soon as I turn on the device. not after I used it for 2 days.
the reason what I can think is, because I used it by charging the Swiftcam M4 and Swiftcam M4-Sony AS300R for the whole time (more than 8 hours), then somehow the electric from powerbank not stabilize and when I bought the swiftcam M4, it already had some problem from PCB. so, it burn out the PCB.
and Swiftcam company claimed that it is human false because I cut the cable by accidently.
in my experienced, I dont smell burnt on PCB. I only can smell burn one on 2nd motor (dinamo), not on PCB. when I shale the swiftcam it sound ckckck on 2nd motor too. and if the PCB burn out, can the device to be turn on? strage isn't it?
Well done then Swiftcam M4.
from the start I bought this device it already had a lot trouble. but not one solution you give me except fn button.
no good & logic answer from them.
