5.0 out of 5 stars Works fine for me
I also bought this wider angle lens for my Foscam Fl8905W camera. Swap out was simple; had to adjust the focus a bit; but finaly got it acceptable for my needs. [note: you may need to loosen the screw on the side of the lens to actualy adjust the focus; then re-tighten to 'lock' the focus]
My skill level: knows what direction to turn a screwdriver

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work well
These lenses are shorter than the 6mm lens that came in the Foscam FI8905E (which is exactly like the FI8905W, but supports power over Ethernet). Even without the front glass on the camera, it gave ghosts when a light source was facing the camera. Since its shorter than the original lens, there were even worse reflections when the front glass was on the camera. It's...

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and Good, February 19, 2013

Usually the combination Cheap and Good doesn't work but for this product it does.
Lens is of a good quality and a cheap replacement for the useless standard Foscam FI8905W lens.
It's just 2 mm (0.1 inch) short than the original but it's not a big deal as the video quality remains the same, just a very very small dark shadow at the corners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monoprice 4 mm lens for Foscam, April 26, 2013

It works great with the Foscam F18905W. Has much wider view than original lens (mine had a 6mm). Depending on your application you may need a wider angle lens than a 4mm(i.e., 2mm). Here's a link with instructions on how to change lens in camera.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good picture, easy installation, March 4, 2013

This device was a breeze to install and the new viewing angle is far superior to the default viewing angle on the stock lens with the Foscam FI8905W. The daytime colors are accurate, and the nighttime IR picture is also good. I will surely use this lens for all Foscam FI8905W cameras I use.

bought this for my Foscam FI8905W as the included 6mm is useless. This was a good upgrade at a great price and fairly easy to replace the original lens. Just wish they offered an even wider angle lens. I haven't been able to find one for less then $60!

I put the original 6mm lens back in and all the reflections and ghosts totally went away.

I have a outdoor Foscam and needed a wider view of the back of my house, looking around I found a wider angle lense then this one but it was also $70. So I bought this lense and overall it gave me maybe a 1/2' more?..

Pros
1. Easy install
2. Clear view
3. Price

Cons
1. Don't expect a huge wide angle increase maybe 1/2'

The lens that comes with the Foscam 8905w is silly, you can hardly see anything. Pop this guy into the camera, it is much better.
