Obsbot Tiny 4K: OSC controllable gimbal webcam
Just wanted to share.
Purchased an Obsbot Tiny 4K Webcam
Works fine in Isadora as a webcam. In fact the picture quality is excellent.
It has AI tracking, which works fine on its auto modes - bit spooky that this thing follows you around the room! - but what I didn't know until playing with it is that you can control a lot of the parameters via OSC, so I've been trying it out in Isadora, controlling the position of the camera on its gimbal via OSC.
It's a little primitive, and I'm still figuring it out, but it looks promising. Here are the OSC commands:
Thanks ! It looks like a genius idea !

How smooth is the movement when controlled by OSC?

Still figuring that out: its inbuilt AI tracking is great. Seems to ease in and ease out of physical camera movements, but I'm still trying to get the OSC working well.

Looks very interesting. I see the "View Set" command, which sort of looks like you can give absolute Pan/Tilt/Zoom positions. Can you confirm that this is true? Have you tried it?

I have just not had a chance to try it out properly. Am working on a touring show - currently in Athens (Greece not Georgia) - and didn’t bring it with me.
Obsbot are just kickstarting a new camera that looks more geared towards pro use: they’re aiming at the church market. Has NDI built in. A cheap PTZ camera would be a great thing.
just an update on OSC controls of the Tiny 4K: this seems to work much better than Obsbot’s own controller:
