Progress on the HD camera

Sorry for the lack of updates lately, I’ve been really busy. But in the time I managed to squeeze in for RC I have managed to build a simple lens mount for the Aiptek Z500+.

It works great, and it’s light weight. It’s nothing more than two PG-7 plastic nuts that I glued in place. The treads on the nuts were way to steep but after screwing the lens in and out a couple of time they succumbed and the lens is perfectly straight and secured.

The total weight of the camera at this moment is 35 grams! And it works!

I also added some glue to the ribbon cable connectors to make sure that they aren’t stressed when panning.
