Rotary Encoder & Potentiometer

Rotary Encoder & Potentiometer

I just thought I'd add my idea for Rotary Encoders and Potentiometer shields.
Hopefully you will like the idea Ken, I'll get one for free.

As you mentioned, it may only be feasible to make one with only encodeing chips. I can see that and that would be fine for me.
For those who wish to do no soldering, it might be good to be able to just clip in on top.

My first idea is a handgrip, with encoder as a remote follow focus control .. probably wireless.
This is for when I have to mount a camera on a crane or jib arm, or up on a pole.

I like this idea. My first thought was to use it with the ribbon cable so it could be remotely mounted directly on the rotating item, but you're right, this thing is so small it could be mounted anywhere with the TinyDuino, even inside a twist hand grip!
