Hi, I have a small project where I would like to control the pan and tilt of a camera. Basically I would want the camera to rotate at every 60 degrees, 6 times then the camera would tilt to new angle and then rotate again 6 times every 60 degrees and finally tilt again and stop.
So far I have seen that this is pretty much all possible using the Pololu Maestro Servo Controller and software to program it.
The main problem I have is finding the right servo that I can use to move at 60 degree intervals through a full 360 degrees. It seems that some servos only do 180 deg. I am pretty new to all this stuff and trying to avoid costlt mistakes.
Any help appreciated.

Do some research on gimbal motors. They are designed from the ground up to position cameras. They may be more expensive than servos, but they will get the job done very easily, I believe. I have no firsthand experience with them.
