IMX519 16mp B0391 - Manual Focus

  1. Where did you get the camera module(s)?

  2. Model number of the product(s)?
    Arducam B0389

  3. What hardware/platform were you working on?
    Raspberry Pi 4

  4. Instructions you have followed. (link/manual/etc.)

  5. Problems you were having?
    I would like to adjust the lens to focus closer.

  6. The dmesg log from your hardware?

  7. Troubleshooting attempts you’ve made?

  8. What help do you need?
    Is it possible to un-thread the lens a bit to bring the focus closer to the module? I am trying to reach a focus distance of no more than 3cm.

You’d better not unthread the lens. This camera uses a stock lens that can not move the lens.

Thanks Dion. Are you saying the lense is not threaded? From the module pictures I have seen there are some very fine threads on the lense.

I’m sure it’s probably glued in place from the factory but so we’re my webcams I used for testing and I was able to remove the glue no issue.

What would be the risk?

The risk is that if you remove the lens, there is no warranty.
