Picture of Camera Support: The New Deal.
For the new scanner, I happened to have the remains of two Elmo Classroom Presenters. They're usually used in classrooms to project the handwriting of the professor.

The arms from these units are nearly perfect for cameras -- they can be extended, they lock easily, and they have a rotating bit at the top.
