Re: SP2 HQ Housing Assembly IR Filter Assembly

Thanks, Realizator, I think if you just mention the (US) glue that you used, people could make their own local match.

Re: SP2 HQ Housing Assembly IR Filter Assembly

In the absence of any help, I went ahead and used some LePage "Ultra Gel" Super Glue which seems to have worked quite well. The built-in applicator with this allows you to accurately place a small drop without the use of a toothpick and it worked quite well for me. It may help to use a pair of round...

Re: ir filter.. protective film?

I too noticed what looked like a protective film on my filters. It's my belief though that what we're seeing may be a chemical film picked up from the plastic bags they were packed in .... most likely a release agent (silicone?) used in the manufacture of the bags. Certainly, my filters were clingin...

Re: SP2 HQ Housing Assembly IR Filter Assembly

Any response? I'm referring to the glue needed to install the IR filters in the black carriages. The assembly notes say: "Note: please do not use the cyanoacrylate "one-second" glue! Its condensed vapors can leave traces on the filter. Also, it is too liquid and can stain the filter. The best glue t...

SP2 HQ Housing Assembly IR Filter Assembly

Can you be more specific for the type of glue recommended?

"Henkel Pattex" covers a wide range of product from that manufacturer and if you're not familiar with them ....

Re: V2 kit assembly questions

The H and V flips didn't help utimately .... I hadn't noticed the rotate. For checking which camera is where, I just put one of the lens caps on and worked with one side .... less confusing. I have I believe fixed the problem by rotating the tft .... see my post in the https://forum.stereopi.com/vie...

Re: Image Upside-down in SLP2

The rotation thing at https://youtu.be/PPkERBPHNAg didn't worked for me (it changed things around but still didn't fix it). For reference, my assembly looks like the one shown in Stereopi-v2-camera-kit-13-5.jpg and Stereopi-v2-camera-kit-13-5.jpg of the "StereoPi V2 Camera Kit Guide". Mechanically f...

Re: V2 kit assembly questions

Thanks Eugene/Realizator.

I did wonder about flipping the screen or lens plate but wasn't sure that would end up with the left camera-image on the left side of the screen and vice-versa. Nice to have it confirmed that it works!

Re: V2 kit assembly questions

I believe I figured out the answer to my first question. The numbers in the drop down box refer (I believe) to the GPIO pin used for the connection. Duh!

Re: V2 kit assembly questions

.... but note that my copy of the StereoPi V2 Quickstart guide claims that SLP2 is marked with a Red sticker and OpenCV with a green one. Realizator's version is correct but be warned. Couple more questions: - When setting up the push-button for the still camera with "Use GPIO as button for Photo Sh...
