Runs very smoothly with these overclock settings in /boot/config.txt
Here's a very compact little panning cam I cobbled together from some spare parts I had lying around... even glued a magnet to the case so I can stick it almost anywhere.
Just thought people would want to know

Will Pikrellcam run on the new Pi Zero v1.3 using the older 5MP Pi camera? (I think the new 8MP camera would be too much data) Would love to have such a tiny camera setup like the Zero running Pikrellcam... would be the ideal setup for my dashboard cam project!
Also... are you aware of these Pi cameras being sold with built-in IR-cut filters and IR LEDs?
Does Pikrellcam have GUI support for turning on and off IR LEDs? It looks like the IR-cut filter is on the same circuit as the IR night-lights... so if Pikrellcam supports turning on and off IR lights via GPIO for the Pi NOIR camera, this camera should work as both night and day camera very nicely....
Which I guess brings up another question... is there any way to automatically schedule when motion detection turns on and off? For instance, I would like to leave the camera running, but turn off motion detection at night so it doesn't just record headlights moving across the frame.
Also, has there been any progress on making Pikrellcam capable of motion tracking with servos? Just curious, last time I was on here you had said it was something that you were working on. You wouldn't really need something as complicated as full object tracking or facial recognition... Would be nice to have Pikrellcam pass vector direction information to the servo control and just simply tell it to snap to the next servo preset in the direction of the motion, then once no motion is detected snap back to the center preset and wait for the next motion event. This, in my opinion, would make the ultimate security cam software for the Pi... motion tracking would allow people to use just one camera for covering a wider area... and without having to use wide angle lenses which degrade picture and video resolution and detail.
