Re: V2 HQ Housing Assembly Focus issue

p.s. Here is the photo which can clarify the 6mm lens adjustment margin. This feature in not obvious from the official datasheet for this lens. Look at the left lens here:

I mean other lenses might have the same "feature" of extra adjustment.

Re: V2 HQ Housing Assembly Focus issue

joedevivo, you intrigued me with your 6mm lenses issue. Did you try to tighten the iris fixing screw and rotate the very top ring after that? This adds one more level of focus freedom for the 6mm lens :-) Could you please share a photo of the 6mm lenses installed? In my photo, you can see two 6mm le...

Re: sync camera timing precisely XVS test points on multiple rPi's

Hi 3DStereoPhoto, At first, you found the key topic on Raspberry Forum for HQ cameras sync. :-) So: 1. Choose the camera you are planning to use as a Master. If you choose CAM0 - this connector is near the USB C port. CAM1 connector is closer to micro SD card slot. Both camera connectors have a name...

Re: Customization of HDMI output modes on SLP image

Hi glowingskull, Wow, you have a tricky task. To say briefly, not all HDMI screens are supported by Raspberry Pi OS out-of-the-box. In some cases, you should manually set the correct scxreen resolution and mode inside the config.txt file. You can take a look at the official documentation from Raspbe...

Re: V2 HQ Housing Assembly Focus issue

"Official" 6mm lens (recommended by RPF) are CS-mount, and they are working fine with the HQ housing without C-CS adaptor ring.

Re: V2 HQ Housing Assembly Focus issue

joedevivo, long story short - 8mm. When you fully screw in a 16mm lens using the 8mm ring, you get a good focus with the approximate "middle" position of the "far-near" regulation ring on the lens. It means you have some reserve for adjusting the focus in both directions. I prefer using the smaller ...

Re: V2 kit assembly questions

dnaman, you can swap/flip/rotate camera from the administration panel (link to the description in our Wiki ). The easiest way to check which camera is where is to put a finger in front of one of the cameras and look at the screen. Please put a finger in front, but not on the camera lens :) Do not fo...

Re: V2 HQ Housing Assembly Focus issue

Hi joedevivo, The issue is that the 16mm lens is C-mount, and has a different working distance. You can notice that HQ camera has a special black ring to adjust this distance, and this led to difficult solution with additional components and threads. The easiest solution is to use an appropriate C-C...

Re: V2 kit assembly questions

Hi dnaman, Drop-down numbers are GPIO numbers. To simplify the first connection, we draw a connection diagram in this section of the Wiki . Right after the diagram, you can find the photo of the pins used for the button connection. As for the upside-down screen, we discussed the solution in this top...

Re: How Do I Watch?

Hey thismarty, I can't recommend any VR device, since this market is exploded now too fast. We try to work with the most available helmets now, i.e. Oculus series. Who knows, maybe in a year or two this market will turn into something like the Android phones market - a huge choice of devices from $5...

Re: Image Upside-down in SLP2

Hi thismarty, TFT screen is actually mirroring the HDMI screen. We are using fbcp-ili9341 library for this, and this library is extremely "unfriendly" for outside parameters. To change any settings we have to fix the source code and recompile it. When I need to rotate the screen relative to cameras,...
