Camera on stand with remote control - a possibility for persons with extensive disabilities

Description
The camera is attached to a stand, see associated tip. The lens cap is attached to the camera strap with a string so it does not get lost.
Camera accessories include an infrared remote control that allows wireless activation of the camera shutter and zoom adjustment. The remote control sits in a holder on the back of the wheelchair and is operated with a mouth stick.

Authors comments
The attachment can also be used for an umbrella.
Today several cameras are available that feature remote control as a standard accessory.
