    I have a camera mounted onto a piece of wood that tilts up at an angle or goes flat. Right now I am doing it by hand, but I want to make it where I can have electronics do it for me with a remote, but have no idea where to start at. I didn't know if there was a "lift" mech that I could use or any ideas you guys might have.

    It looks like there may be several candidates if you google "diy camera pan tilt". A relatively inexpensive microcontroller might be used to drive a couple relatively inexpensive servo motors. Several options for control like, Sony SIRC (or other IR format) remote control (short line of sight distances), serial from a PC or another small microcontroller (moderate distances), or wireless from a PC or another small microcontroller (moderate distances).

    Cheerful regards, Mike
