So,I decided to make an arduino infrared remote controlled camera array . An arduino prototype board with an infrared led and two servos controls at least four different pieces of video equipment and has a few options useful for nature and wild life photography as well. A motorized camera rig is on the way.

|A "hacked" 433MHZ radio link -we just get TTL Rx/Tx signals and 5V to feed Arduino|
|Arduino infrared prototype feeded by a 7.4V LiPo (5400mah!!) , a 3A/ 5V swiching regulator, and a hacked 433Mhz serial link . Bottom center is the Infrared led and one of the two optional servos for shutter and zoom functions.|
