    I was not very happy with the camera angel and with the LEDs the camera looked straight into the left ones.
    Also the camera had too much of the head so I decided to change the angel.

    I'd love to try this to see how it would improve the camera position. Would you mind sharing the file...

    Yes, especially now that the files have been released. There are a few upgrade/revised files already on Thingiverse.com from @Alex9779 and @Spoon Unit

    This will be my final design, easy to print and effective.

    Would love to see the difference in the before and after PiCam images once you've got it working!

    It just rotates and tilt. Would be great to have a motorised version :)

    How well does that handle print vibrations and maintaining position?

    I will see once my printer is finished. In the worst case I will fix it with one or two M2.5 screws.

    Since my true ballhead was too sensitive to vibration, I have changed the design taking advantage by the fact my printer is down till the new driver arrives. I remove one degree of freedom but it is much more stable now.

    UPDATE: this design works wonders.
