I am working on a project where a dslr camera will be rotated on a tripod on 2 axes. I'm definitely using nema 17 motors as those are what I have. The motors will rotate 30 degrees every 5 seconds in normal usage so speed is not a requirement. The weight of the camera is 1170g and I'm using 3d printed parts for the remainder of the mount. I tried running nema 17 stepper motors off a Adafruit Motor Shield V2 but the whole thing overheats (battery, driver, and motor). By the way, the motor will be controlled by an Arduino. I need to find another motor controller to use. I looked on ebay and things like this came up for 20 dollars which seems too good to be true.
My question is what motor driver should I use for this project as I have little experience with them outside of Arduino shields
