I was annoyed by the use of a tripod in a workshop, that otherwise has a small space, so I made a wall camera holder.
This camera holder is made from scrap wooden boards and some accessories, so it is very cheap for making. The selected dimensions allow the camera to be positioned within an area of 8 m2 (86.11 ft2), or about 16 m2 if the camera holder is mounted on a ceiling.
When folded, takes up very little space and does not bother in work. Thanks to the metal box and ball bearings, this camera holder also has a slider function for panoramic frames. Depending on the chosen footer, it can be used for mobile phones or cameras.
Also, it is possible to mount additional lighting on this camera holder.

Looks good, one thing you might want to do is drill lightning holes in the booms to lower the weight when extended far out. It will save your joints ..

I tried a camera arm but any vibration would jiggle the camera when the arm was extended. But my shop is wood framed. Might work better for you. I like John Heisz’ gantry but don’t have high enough ceilings.

This is awesome! I really like how you incorporated the lights right into the mount.
