Pi wide Angle Camera Module - Out of Focus

Recently purchased the Pi Wide Angle Camera Module, image seems to be out of focus.
Is there a way to adjust the focus ??
The lens seems to have a thread on it but it does not turn. Don’t want to put to much pressure on turning it as it might beak. Web page says adjustable focus, how do I do that ??

I have 2 Pi Camera V2 and adjusting the focus on them is pretty tricky This device really helped.

Hey James! (nice name by the way)

I’ve confirmed that the thread is kept in place by a small amount of glue, and that applying moderate twist to the lens breaks this glue and allows you to adjust it.

I didn’t observe any damage, so you should be fine to give this a go yourself.


Yep it was glue.
With the one I had it was quite a lot of glue, covered about 1/4 of the circumference. Scrapped as much off as I could off, then gentle use with pliers it came loose, and now in focus. I could not turn it by hand to begin with, now I can.

Thanks for checking, cheers
