Default 3 degree of freedom head tracking


Anybody know if someone has done 3 DOF head tracking to 3 DOF camera mount? All I see lately are these pan and tilt systems.

Been wanting to do that Matt, was thinking of a 3 axis setup like a CCPM on helicopters with 1 servo below to spin it. Perfecting my pan/tilt unit for sale right now, uses data modems so that I can send telemetry data back down from airplane or other vehicle. GPS, temperature, Turbine info (if so equipped), etc, etc.

They are made for larger professional film and video cameras. Usually consist of a ring around the camera and a motor drive. Never have seen one for very small cameras.
