    Just wondering if anyone knows of a supplier. I found a Pixco M12 to C-mount but not an M16 version.

Just an update for anyone else looking for an adapter like this…

No luck so far in finding one, but have found a CS mount that will hopefully replace the existing M16 mount on the board.
It uses the 20mm spaced mounting fixtures to allow it to be screwed to the board. Available from fulekan on AliExpress.

Will update again after it arrives to confirm it’s suitability.

I’m sorry you didn’t get any response here,
At present, our support team does not know much about lens-related parameters. Generally, you can send an email to [email protected] to ask for lens-related information.

No worries, I wasn’t really looking for help from the support team, rather I was hoping that maybe some other end-users had tinkered with C/CS mount lenses and had used a suitable adapter.

My goal is to be able to use some fairly long focal length lenses - much longer than the typically available 4/6/8mm M16 ones - to get a narrow field of view for long distance use.

I’m quite hopeful that the replacement lens mount I’ve found will be suitable and will allow C/CS lenses to be used with the 462 board.

For anyone looking for something similar…
I’ve finally received the replacement lens mount from Fulekan/AliExpress.

I’m happy to say it works perfectly. I simply unscrewed the 2 small self-tapping screws that hold the M16 lens holder onto the UC-755 sensor board , and fitted the new CS mount holder, complete with its own IR-cut filter to the board using the supplied small set screws. Added a 5mm thick CS to C-mount adapter and now am working with a 25mm C mount lens on the IMX462 board.
