Ahh... labor job over, 3 more days off. It is a great day today wish I could fly.

Anyway I was thinking about what I want to do next with this project.

Since the interface is bad on this camera I decided I would make a phone controller for it.

Which is something I had thought about for the Pi Zero HQ Cam but not in this manner.

The camera will be like an API and the phone is a client.

For this I need a tripod (which I will match the design of common tripod screw mounts) and then make a modular frame.

I also want an extended battery attachment so that'll get made probably just an 18650 cell but that will give the camera a lot more life (eg. 3000mAh+) over the 720mAh it has by default.

Ehh I thought I had a better visual than this but I guess not.

I also throughout these projects actually want to "really" learn photography. Not just the basics so I can make a good interface on the mobile app (settings that can be changed which make sense).

Battery attachment would be something like this (while still working with a tripod)
