Better than expected – Replacement Fixed Iris Lens for CCTV Camera (1.8mm) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
The lens screws nicely into my cheap USB webcam. I expected to have to glue it in place or something like that, but I did not.
Image quality is good, at least as good as my original lens anyway. It's a cheap webcam so I can't tell whether it's exceptional or not.
Distortions are quite acceptable in my opinion.
Cons:
You can't call that a con, but the front element is very exposed. You have to be careful not to scratch it. The included cap comes in handy.
Other:
The lens is IR filtered. I didn't try to remove it, but it doesn't seem any harder than removing the filter of a typical webcam lens. It appears that you would have to pop some sort of cap at the rear end.
Bottomline:
This product gave a new life to my webcam. I'm very happy with it.
