With the composite kernel driver you can create as many virtual gadgets as you want from a single usb otg port. Lots of people have done it and documented extensively for the pi0. Here is my list (look at the composite gadget section): https://github.com/showmewebcam/showmewebcam/wiki/Further-Documentation

> So there is a market gap between so-so webcams for $100-200 and a full-blown setup with a mirrorless camera, an external mic and lighting panels that will cost almost a grand or two, if you're so inclined.
Try our free software project that uses a Pi and its HQ sensor to make a USB webcam . You'll have a wide range of lenses  and cases  that people cook up for their personal use.
Last time I commented here, there have been criticisms about the quality of the lens that the Pi foindation sell. We have discovered many other decent alternative lenses that help remedy the quality and distortion issue of the stock lenses. An example of a good guide is the commonlands lens guide .
The software is very actively developed and we have a pretty supportive community with good software engineering practices. Check it out, you might even like it!
