Nioe cheap wide angle lens. – 3.6mm Fixed IRIS Lens for Webcams and Security/CCTV Cameras Reviews

posted by selmo on 04/14/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Clear crisp image
wide angle view
works in my foscam clone (12mm mount)
comes with a lens cap (outward side only)
Cons:
All very minor points:
Hard to grip during focusing, could use some knurling.
No markings on it to tell you the focal length / f rating. -- use a fine point paint pen to write it on the lens cap!
No protective packaging (box or plastic case -- just in a little baggie).
No lens cap for the back.
Other:
Would like to see a wide angle lens like this with a wider f/stop for low light situations.
Bottomline:
Does what it's supposed to, very cheap.
