I’m very sorry to hear this news.
Can you provide some photos? I will report back on this issue.

Hey Edward,

Thanks for the swift reply. I’ll share some photos.

From our point of view it seems like an issue with the lens assembly, that is not parallel with the image sensor. We have tested 4 cameras, of which 3 show the issue. We have 1 that doesnt seem to have the problem, although some chromatic aberration is visible. All 4 cameras have the same lot code on the boxes (20230418).

All photos below are from one camera.

As you can tell from the shadow, the images are taken from a drone, but for these photos we held the camera still to not include any vibration issues.

Kind regards,




I think it’s a workmanship issue, I’ll have a meeting with them right away to discuss how this can be fixed, please wait a minute. I will give you a solution today.


Sorry, this question belongs to us. You can contact my email [email protected], I will help you arrange to replace the good camera.
