Components / Peripherals Questions
I am creating a bracket to hold the camera used by a robot in a parts picking assembly operation. Can you tell me if there is a standard camera mounting configuration/bolt pattern, or a "most common" bolt pattern in use by multiple manufacturers?

Jon -- As others have said, except for the usually single 1/4x20 threaded hole, there is no standard. The 1/4x20 thread, designed originally for tripod mounting of photographic cameras, is unsatisfactory for industrial use. The easy approach is to use an intermediate plate that can be customized for the specific camera mounting hole configuration but have a standard mounting configuration to fit to your robot end effector.
