Not the most exiting image, but my first attempt at a user define camera.

The camera revolves around the y-axis through the look_at point. The 
radius specifies how far it is from that point.

Changing the radius dos not change the scale of things, I expected the 
thing to become thinner. For now it just prevents intersection with the 
objects within the radius.

Also I'm not sure what to do with the Y-function in the direction, just 
leave it at v or should Y be incorporated somehow?

Added a vertical angle, now it gets 'thinner'
