Finally made time (maybe 30 minutes) to swap lenses on my V2.
This particular V2 has spent the past year outside in a birdhouse enclosure. It was pointed at a fairly useless spot so I figured I’d repurpose it.
I did manage to accidentally reset it while trying to focus the new lens. Since it was still out of its shell I was able to put the factory lens back in and get it to scan the QR code.
Anywho… this now lives upstairs pointed out a bedroom window to catch swingset shenanigans.
It’s a 25mm lens from ($15 on Amazon). I just got lucky that the 25mm field of view covers the swingset from the window I was planning on sticking it in. I have no worries about IR window reflections because the swingset doesn’t get used a lot at night. Though I did disable the IR LEDs because I’m not an animal.
As a side note: I hope the outdoor cam is as easy to work on. Obviously opening and swapping the lens could ruin the weather resistance, but it could still give a great platform to start with.
