I built this camera pan and tilt a couple years ago and have just now finally gotten around to putting it on here. I wanted to be able to wirelessly control the direction of my wireless camera that i had, so i started looking thru all of my junk piles finding stuff to make one out of. I built the base out of a cd drive tray, and used the motor that controlled the opening and closing for the pan function. I built the base of the mechanism that the camera would sit on out of a piece of the metal cd drive case and some erector set pieces. For the tilt i used a motor out of an out floppy drive that already had a gear reduction on it, i glued a shaft onto the end of the gear and created a deck for the camera to sit on. Now for the wireless part i used an old remote control car, i connected the forward/reverse wireless to the tilt part of the camera, and the side to side movement to the pan. The whole project is powered by a 6volt battery, besides the camera which has its own power supply. This is my first instructables, so if you have any questions please leave comments.
