Gives very wide field of view easy to fit and focus fits in a wide range of cameras
Field of view is too wide for many cameras. In most of my cams, the lense was so wide it showed the housing of the camera around the outside. If the camera you used it in has an exposed lense it would be OK but if it is within any sort of housing it will probably do the same.
The picture with this lense fitted showed a black circle around the outside of the screen - ie corners were cutoff as the lense view is so wide as to show the housing. I didnt have an IR filter on the one I bought - it worked well out of the box with the IR LED's on my camera
This item is as described but if it is used on anything other than a board camera it may be too wide. The view is also a little "fish eye" with distortion around the edges - as would be expected at this focal length.
