Will anyone be buying mechanical-mirror DSLR cameras in 5 years?; This link and the following one were suggested by Sue Moran Thole.
SoloShot
SoloShot is a robotic tracking device for video or still photography. You or your subject wear a tag and the base unit (mounted on a tripod) will tilt and pan to keep the camera aimed at the tag. The base can support up to a 5 pound camera. Some DSLRs will require an additional cable to hook up.
