The challenge

Camera holder for VictoriaVictoria is a young lady with limited use of her hands who wished to follow her hobby of photography. However she had problems holding the camera steady and operating its controls from her wheelchair.

A suitable shutter operating mechanism was devised using a lever to operate a conventional pneumatic squeeze-bulb. A movable frame based on an Anglepoise lampholder was made to hold the camera in position.

Victoria can now follow her hobby.
