Doesn't seem to be lots of activity here in the tablet area, but here goes. My daughter has a Surface Pro 7. She's taking a math class where the teacher wants to see them doing their work as the test goes on, so the camera needs to be pointing down. I've looked for a stand with a 90 degree gimble to bring the device horizontal. I can find a few for iPads but nothing be enough to handle the Surface. Or is it is big enough, it won't go 90 degrees down
Anyone know of one?

Would it be easier to attach an external camera, using the USB port ?

Thanks, I thought about that but I'm not sure how the Zoom will respond to a second camera. I've noticed some weird stuff since their traffic skyrocketed. For a long time I could not use my laptop speaker for audio, then one day it just started working without me making any configuration changes.

I did wind up ordering a gooseneck stand that "looks" like it will hold it, we'll just have to see.

Zoom Can handle multiple cameras by running them through OBS or some other software like that. There’s plenty of youtuBe videos explaining how to run multiple cameras in zoom.
