The process of finding the maximum resolution, sharpness, and contrast of a selected subject by manual focusing.
2. Why do you need to focus?
Due to the different installation positions of the camera with fixed focal length, the video effect presented is different. At this time, we need to adjust the focus to achieve the best state.
This article will introduce you two methods of focusing, focusing method 1.0 (remove the case), and focusing method V2.0 (no need to remove the case). We will give a brief overview of the advantages and disadvantages of the two methods, and describe the focusing steps in detail for the focusing method V2.0.
Focusing Method V 2.0
To print an external mount print, clamp the protrusion in the lens groove through the hole, and turn the lens to adjust the focus of the camera
1. No need to disassemble the shell
2. There are skills in installation
3. There are skills in rotating and focusing
Where to get the STL file of this tool?
Step 1 - Print the Twist Focus Tool
1. Find the hole size suitable for your camera lens size
Maybe you can't find the best diameter size in the link. At this time, you can use the "XY Size Compensation" setting in "Advanced" in the slicing software to compensate (the parameter name comes from PrusaSlicer 2.4.2, other slices Software generally has parameters similar to compensation).
2. Print the full version of the focusing tool
After you find the size that fits best, you can find the full version of the focusing tool and print it again.
Step 2 - Install and Adjust Focus
1. Install focusing tools
Align the hole of the focusing tool with the groove of the lens, then install the two sides of the focusing tool with both hands. Press lightly to ensure that the focusing tool is stuck in the groove of the lens.
2. Rotate the focus tool
Turn the focusing tool by hand to adjust the focus. The only thing to note is that the focusing tool in this method cannot bear the force perpendicular to the lens, please gently move the hand-twist part to adjust the focus. Too fast, or applying force in the wrong direction can cause the focusing tool to disengage from the lens groove. In this case, you need to re-engage it, and then rotate it.
The defaults version of the camera is night vision mode. When you install the focusing tool, Beagle Camera will automatically switch to night vision, so you may see the video in black and white. At this point, you can select settings on Beagleprint and find "Camera Night Version" and change it to "Color Night Version".
Focusing Method V 1.0
This is the way to disassemble the shell and turn the lens directly by hand to adjust the focal length of the camera.
2. Self-tapping screw installation, cannot be disassembled multiple times
3. Involves cable removal, which requires careful operation
However, it is worth it if you are serious about the video quality of your camera. Our goal is to bring you as much fun as possible with the Beagle Camera.
