I bought a couple of Arducam B0031 cameras, because it claimed to use interchangeable M12 lenses. I also bought a set of Arducam LK002 lenses
Using the lens holder that came with the B0031 the LK002 lenses were unable to focus. I assume this is because the stock lens holder has too long a barrel (seems like a poor design choice to advertise replaceable lens but use a stock lens that is incompatible. But whatever).
The lens kit included one replacement lens holder, with a very short mount barrel. I replaced the holder on one of the cameras and tried to use one of the lenses. It was still unable to focus, probably because the barrel was too short. And because the mount holder was so short, only accepting a couple turns of the lens, I think I may have screwed the lens in too far and may have damaged the sensor. That also seems like a poor design choice.
Does the LK002 lens set really work with the B0031 camera? If it doesn’t, is there another set that does work? If it doesn’t work, why isn’t that documented better? If the problem is the lens holder, why is it so hard to find a lens holder with the right mount barrel length? Shouldn’t that be documented?
I’m not feeling very happy about this, I’m leaning toward a 1 star Amazon review. I’m sad because I had been satisfied with other Arducam products (CS mount lenses) and had recommended them to people.
