I have a raspberry pi 4, an HQ camera and the 6mm lens. I’ve set the pi, camera and lens up as recommended (so no C-CS adaptor, I’ve screwed the back focus all the way in), I enabled in software and I’m using “motion” to get a preview image from the camera. I get an “image” but it is basically one big blur : totally out of focus. Fiddling around with aperture and focus rings I cannot get it to improve focus at all.
I never like to accuse the product of being faulty but I’m getting to the point where either I’ve missed something basic or there is a fault.
Checking the sensor I cannot see a supplied covering so I don’t think that’s it. Doesn’t ‘feel’ like a software fault - if I wave my hands around in front of the lens or move the camera its clearly picking up light and an image of sorts.
Is there anything else I can try? Could the camera be faulty?
