    I found the fixed focus very limiting compared to most USB cameras.

    My board came with the focus set very close and, although adjusting it is possible (by rotating the small component that rings the lense), it's difficult to do so accurately or safely. (Posted on 23/05/2018)

    It works and it's a camera. No instructions included. Which means some searching but this will save you some clicks. To use the camera "sudo raspi-config" and enable raspberry pi camera then "sudo modprobe bcm2835-v4l2". I'm using the app "motion" but test it with "raspistill -o image.jpg" to take a picture.

    Great camera for the Pi that is a huge improvement over the already impressive v1.2 camera. The only thing that could improve it more would be the addition of an M12 lens holder, so that alternative (wide/narrow/zoom) lenses could be used, maybe the Raspberry Pi Foundation will surprise us with the v3 (Posted on 22/08/2016)
