6mm wide lens cant focus

by halvus on Wed Sep 22, 2021 8:07 pm

Hello,

I purchased the RPi HQ cam and 6mm wide lens. I cant get it to focus. I turned everything that can be turned. It seems like i cant adjust the focus down enough. Am i missing an adapter?

Can you post pictures of the lens and how you have it connected?

Fixed it! I had to remove the adapter ring pictured below. Also, a bonus shot from the HQ cam

Allright! I'm glad you figured it out. I was at a loss to know what to recommend.
