A quick look at my Pan Tilt Zoom camera system

CheckItOut Blog   •   December 3, 2015

Since I’m a one man show, it’s more work to create YouTube videos with multiple angles and cameras.  The setup involves moving cameras, check the framing, move again, check again, etc…

I always wanted to have some sort of PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) system, but after looking into it, these are pretty expensive, even the ones that are connected by wire.  The wireless ones are even worse.

So since I like making stuff, I started looking into a solution using off the self parts and see if I could build my own!

This is what I came up with!  In this video I’ll introduce you to the system, the parts I used and how it works.

If you’re interested in building your own you can check out the complete Tutorial HERE, where I talk about the connections and the Arduino code I used.
