    I use mine for a microphone at my desk. (I purchased 3 for this type of hack a few months ago)

    I think that instead of bonding the webcam directly to the armature I would have used something closer to a standard camera mount.

    I used to have one of those but it kept jumping up and down on every letter “I” it could find.  In the end it got quite messy.

    Technically this is a knockoff of a Luxo lamp, not an Anglepoise.

    What if you left the lamp/bulb but mounted the camera above the bulb? Ring flash?

    I have one on my desk right now holding a Samson C01U mike held in a wire cage, purchased back when I was recording my podcasts.

    Now I use it for recording high-quality audio for my video conferencing.

    Its actually quite usable.

    And we named him Wheatley.  He’s not bright, but isn’t he ADORABLE?

    I use mine as a desk lamp. It’s pretty good for a cheapie.
