four axis camera gimballA team has come up with a rather cool camera mount project for college. The mount is a 4-axis gimbal mount for a camera, designed in CAD, with its parts cut using a laser and milled down to specifications. A tiny point-and-shoot camera has been mounted in it in the picture above, but it’s apparently strong enough to support cameras of any size. The mounting ring can rotate like the hands of a clock while also pivoting on a horizontal axis. The bracket that holds the ring is able to rotate on a vertical axis and the whole rig can travel along the wire that is supporting it. You can check out a video of it in action after the jump.
