Thanks for the suggestions. If I were doing this in my own lecture hall,
some of these would seem more feasible. I need something that I can take
with me to other venues: classrooms, auditoriums, gyms, etc. It needs to be
quick and easy to set up and use, plug-and-play, as they say, on my
WindowsXP laptop or directly into my old Epson projector.

I believe I've seen some flex-cams in use at some of the demo shows at AAPT
meetings and am wondering which of the many versions some of you may have
experience with.

There is also a photo suggesting that if one does
not actually need an enlarger, there is nevertheless
a multitude of uses for the variable (parallelogram)
support structure, whereby one can support cameras etc
at various angles and altitudes.

There is also a rack and pinion arrangement that could
be adapted for variable positioning uses.

You can also check on PIRA-chat for any other of our
available items.
