EPS32-CAM Out of Focus OV2640

My newly received ESP32-CAM is out of focus. It looks like the lens has been glued on incorrectly as shown in the picture.

Should I try and repair?
Looks like there is a thread on the lens, and if so it is certainly crossed. (like me :frowning_face:)

And a picture from the camera.

You have little to lose by trying!

Hi @dacho .

I have a faulty camera here.
I removed the glue.
Apparently the glue is a hot melt type.
Try to hot slightly and move the lens adjustment.

Thank you all.

I'm almost there as below picture, and can now screw lens in out for various closeup or other applications. :smiley:

PS: Love the STEMTera boards in photo.
