Abstract/Artist Statement

Photography and videography are rapidly growing hobbies due to the increase in smartphones with cameras and its significance in creating long-lasting memories. Because of the growing market, this camera track has been designed to help users take their video experience to the next level. Unlike other camera tracks, this project aims for smartphones, pocket cameras, and some lightweight DSLRs, with a cheaper price than products currently available on the market. The entire project was made from simple parts that were either machined easily or available as standard low price parts. The project successfully met the objectives of being under $300, having a reasonable length of under three feet for portability, and having a small controlled motor connected to a precise lead screw that provides the ability to create professional looking videos.
