Default camera pistol grip

I have seen some old photos of cameras set up on rifle stocks. i really love flare guns and noticed that the contour camera has a similar shape. i drew up a working linkage and carved this grip out of mdf. hope to have a working setup soon.

the black part is the camera. its similar to a go pro. eventially there will be a trigger mechanism that will turn the camera on and off.
