I'm testing my camera for text but I have a problem with both center and far edges being out of focus while an 'inner ring' is in focus.
Text is 5pt. Lens edge is 15cm from paper. Loop (x3) sits against the lens.
Is this because of the loop? Because in the no loop picture it seems there is also a varying degree of focus in the same areas so maybe it is the camera lens itself. Will I have consistent focus if I loosen the ring and focus it myself? Full frame focus isn't what I expect to get but at least a consistent center and midfield shouldn't be too much to ask.
Will I get better results with the 1.3 camera? I can get +100 1.3 cameras €25/each while the new 2.1 costs €32.
I don't understand who found it a good idea to 1) glue the thing 2) make it so dangerous to get it loose... Who wouldn't pay €5 extra if it had a sturdy adjustable focus or came with an adapter that opened it for easier 3rd party support.
Nobody expects professional pictures. But on the other end who expects a €30 module that out of the box takes fuzzy pictures in any real life setup. If you can pay €80 for a Canon ixus 160
with 20mp, autofocus, 28-224mm zoom, screen, battery and charger, then €30 surely should get a better camera module?
