Camalot C3 cams from Black Diamond have a single axle, three cam lobes and a 'U' shaped stem. This means that the C3s have a very small profile and are perfect for round and oval shaped cam placements where traditional four lobed cams can't go. The smallest C3 has a range that goes down to 7.8mm.
The spring on the C3s is plenty strong and means that the cam lobes really bite hard This reduces the chances of the cam 'walking' deeper into cracks. These cams are also easy to handle with a great feeling trigger and thumb loop for precise placement. The only very small down side to the C3s is that the 'U' shaped stem doesn't flex right down to the cam head as some other cams do, giving the stem a slightly stiffer feel. However this is a very small downside for a cam which is otherwise a joy to handle and to place.
