RIG - 1

Rig-1 was developed starting with the combination of a "Canon A640" camera and "Urbi-zoom" interface. These two components in fact ensure good quality images and zoom control. All other components of the rig were identified in relation to this equipment.

The final weight is under 600 grams. and could be further reduced by optimizing the structure and wiring but the weight is conditioned by the 250 gram camera which requires materials and components, adequate in terms of strength, power and reliability.
