High-Res Camera Blurry

  • I've been trying to record 4k video with the high res camera on the RB5. It's to my understanding that I'll have to wait to get 4k footage based on this topic. But even recording in 480p, the camera is very out of focus.

    I'm recording video using the command below, not streaming.

    gst-launch-1.0 -e qtiqmmfsrc camera=3 name=tracker ! video/x-h264,format=NV12,width=640,height=480,framerate=30/1 ! queue ! h264parse ! mp4mux ! filesink location=video.mp4

    Things very close to the RB5 (within a few inches of the camera) are well in focus but past that, it's extremely blurry.
    How would I adjust the focus? Should it be happening automatically?

    The lens is fixed focus, but if you twist the little black part of the lens you should be able to focus.

  • Thanks! I was able to do that. I just wanted to make sure before finding a tool small enough to be able to do that, and trying to twist the lens without knowing if it should be twisted.
