Camera module V2.1 Focus

Wed Sep 22, 2021 1:04 pm

Hello
I recently bought a camera module V2.1 and I can not get it to focus on an object at a distance of about 1 meter. When I turn the "lens" (if that's what it's called) I can get good focus on objects that are very close to the camera (5-10cm). Am I doing something wrong?

I for the most part, don't mess with the focus. As far as I know they come preset for a wide field of view. That being said, the few times I did mess with it I found it a bit finicky to get right. I was going for distance, though, not close up stuff. Even then near objects were in focus. Everything was either in focus or fuzzy.

If its focussed at 5-10cm then the lens is screwed well out, screw it in very slowly to get to 1m, it's very sensitive so only rotate very small amounts at a time, eg only a fraction of a rotation.
