Picture of Joystick controlled Camera
First of all, my English is not perfect =)

I've seen many projects with Arduino that describes how to control 2 servo's with a joystick or use a lcd screen. All of the projects that i have seen are all seperate things. So i decided to make a short Instructable of these things combined. In this instructable is everything you need! Drawings, schematics, pictures and even the Complete Code that i've mostly written! This project is made on a breadboard because i just didn't have the time to make this in a nice shining aluminum box  :O

In the picture above you see the camera mounted in two aluminum brackets for the servo's. I have a instructable for that too!!!
Check it out!

Enjoy! =)

Can you edit the code and upload it to pastebin so I don't need to use the screen?

Can't you copy the code on this page?

Can I use a simple digital camera?
markie (author)  nyatuv2 years ago
Yes you can, I recommend to make something like in the picture. In this way your camera has more support then when its only attached to the side of the servo.

How did you built the cam mount and what cam do you used?
markie (author)  nyatuv2 years ago
Here's the link to my instructable for the cam mount :)

And for the Camera i used the Sentient Wired Camera. You can mount any cam or laser if you want, just re-design the mount attached to the servo.
