Camera Stopper and Tubing

After my tutorials last week it was established that the length of the tubing on the camera was not neccessary and this could simply be a hole. I made another prototype of how this would look and how it works.

The stopper of the tubing is a balloon valve. This valve will not let air out and keep the helium inside the balloon. I'm still waiting on some more valves being delivered which I hope work in a different way. The ones that I want will allow air in one way but not the other. If I can find these then this can simply be designed into the camera which would remove any difficulty for the user.
I'm not sure whether this could be a simple cork type action or if it should be screwed to reduce the chances of it falling out, this is something that I need to test out.
