Sensor and Lens Specs for Spy Camera

by jtriebwa on Wed Jun 12, 2019 6:47 pm

Good afternoon,

I was wondering if there were any kind of data sheet for the sensor and the lens used on the spy camera (PRODUCT ID: 1937). I need to know the pixel size as well as the focal length. If you could point me in right direction I would really appreciate it!

I'm afraid we don't make that one, and don't have any specs for it.

The lens assembly screws into the CCD though, and is adjustable. This tool makes it easier to tweak the position:

I do not currently have a raspberry pi to test, which orientation is correct (cable up, or cable down) ?

The RasPi's camera connector is vertical, so up and down don't carry any particular meaning.

The side of the flex cable with the contacts goes toward the thicker part of the fine-pitch connector. On a RasPi, the contacts are on the side closest to the Ethernet port.

Thank you for you reply. That was a poor description on my part. I am designing a mount for the camera and I would like to know which way is up for the camera. I dont want to have my camera mounted upside down.

Ah, I understand now: orientation of the captured image relative to the physical assembly.

I don't have one on hand, but will have someone check.
