Does the lens come off?

Fri Aug 14, 2020 1:56 pm

I was wondering if it's possible to "unscrew" the lens component of the Pi Camera V1 (5 MP).

I attached a picture to show what I'm talking about. I'm not trying to take the entire camera module out of the PCB, just the circular part that contains the lens (the part circled in red, not the square part below it), to reveal the sensor.

Yes you can unscrew it. Be careful it's glued.

Hold the square mount whilst doing it.
