My new modular camera system made out of various bits and pieces. Note: this photo shows only one of many possible configurations.

a surprising discovery: When the camera shuts off (as it will) typically the only way to turn it on again is to toggle the lens cover on/off. However, when the camera is powered by USB if the camera is off and the USB port is toggled on/off the camera will attempt to reconnect over USB which in turn will turn the camera on. This knowledge could be useful in remote settings -- just need a way of toggling the USB port remotely...

NOT a gimbal -- just a homemade panorama adapter using bits and pieces from various camera accessories. The power is just a cheap "power bank monopod handle usb" (google it). Overall it makes it much easier to use -- especially in un-tethered mode.
