First version of Pi camera.
I was not able to find a good camera support with pan and tilt functionalities so I made one. Please not this thing requires some amount of tinkering (soldering, connecting electronic components, etc).
I also wrote a short post with link to Github repository on my blog.
Let me know what you think!
1/ the camera flat cable is not the best choice for pan and tilt applications. So far worked well nonetheless. The design is already compatible with a round cable.
2/ requires a thin tool like a screw driver to access the SD card release mechanism. This will be solved in further releases
- 30 cm FPC camera ribbon (http://www.ebay.ch/itm/Ribbon-FPC-15pin-1mm-Pitch-30cm-flat-Wire-Cable-for-Raspberry-Pi-Camera-Module-/271557924455?hash=item3f3a1d1667)
- DC Power Apply Pinboard 5.5x2.1mm Adapter Plate (http://www.ebay.ch/itm/DC-Power-Apply-Pinboard-5-5x2-1mm-Adapter-Plate-/370890293427?hash=item565ac8c0b3)
- LM2596 Step Down Module DC-DC Buck Converter (http://www.ebay.ch/itm/LM2596-Step-Down-Module-DC-DC-Buck-Converter-Power-Supply-Output-1-23V-30V-New-/251066005460?hash=item3a74b337d4)
- SG 90 servos (http://www.ebay.ch/itm/10pcs-SG90-9G-micro-servo-motor-RC-Robot-Helicopter-Airplane-controls-/400980196653?hash=item5d5c483d2d)
- nuts, bolts and wires
Basically you need a power regulator to ensure a steady supply for the Raspberry Pi and the servos plus a power distribution board (big name, just 3 lines of a prototype board will do).
Below some pictures of my setup.
