I'm keeping the 4 star review, in the spirit of this camera sensor only being ~$30 and a great project for the raspberry Pi.
I never owned or used the original 5MP camera but this one is as expected for a $30 camera. I'm not seeing any focus issues on my unit like another reviewer has, but I'm sure I'll end up tinkering with it anyway. The only thing I had to do was update the firmware on the Pi by running "rpi-update". I had to do this because the image out of the box was mirrored, which took some googling to see that lots of people have the same issue. If you intend on using motioneyeOS (not the normal motioneye inside Raspbian) that the image will be mirrored since you can't update the firmware in that OS and they haven't updated their code at the time of this writing.
8MP resolution is 3,264 x 2,448 the video specs are max 1080p30, which is a lower FOV than you'll probably want. The full frame video resolution I'm currently using is 1620 x 1232 which achieves 4:3 aspect ratio (full frame). Doesn't seem to place a big load on the CPU. See the attached images for the documentation on resolution modes with this camera.
Right now I'm using this as an IP camera using RPi-Cam-Web-Interface which works well if you're after a good IP Camera solution with a nice web GUI front end.
Obviously, if you want IR night time viewing with an external IR light source, you need the NoIR version of this camera. Beware though, that the daytime image will looks slightly...weird. But you already knew that if you own a Pi and are interested in this stuff, didn't you....
Best thing about this order? It came with a perfect tool to adjust the focus!
No more breaking glue loose and scarring up the camera with pliers just to
adjust the focus.
After reading several stories of success, I used a razor blade to remove some glue holding the lens in place, and refocused the lens with my fingernails. After some minutes of focusing and going back and forth, I was able to drastically improve the camera's focus on distant objects, making it perform very similarly to the V1 camera. See comments below for a link to full resolution snapshots of before and after.
I've added back two stars to my review.
Despite this having a superior 8 megapixel sensor, the lens is much inferior compared to the original 5 megapixel Raspberry Pi Camera. Images have poor focus, particularly for distant subjects. This problem is affecting everyone, not just me. Refocusing the lens helps a little, but does not completely solve the focus problem. To adjust the lens focus, glue must be removed first.
My recommendation: don't buy the V2 camera module. Find an older V1 module instead, or wait until the lens problem is fixed officially.
Right now it's serving duty watching the front room and checking up on my dog when I am not here. More than up to the task.
Great price and an essential part of a terrific system - the Raspberry Pi.
Now that I'm disappointed I'm doing the homework I should have done in the beginning. This problem has apparently been known since April a year ago.
December 10: raised to 3 stars. I made a wrench for the lens by drilling a hole in an old credit card and filing prongs to grab the ribs on the lens. it didn't take much torque to break loose the glue which apparently is intended to keep the lens at the 4 foot focus. Now it's pretty close to infinity and the quality of the picture is really quite good. There is an outfit which provides a small wrench with their pi cameras. But not this one.
