Endo camera modules on way:
To pair with the omni lens:
The problem with the full unit was 1) the glaring LED bathing the interior of the lens with unwanted light and 2) the tube the camera was in kept the camera aperture too far from lens … so it didn’t fit field of view.
The bigger difference between this and the lens from the older bloggy is that it is more of a periscope … with a mirror at 45 degrees … that the camera looks at. The unit has a cover with jeweler’s screws so might still take the mirror out and use camera co-axially with lens.
Won’t know until the modules turn up to see how much of the field of view is filled.
In mean time, coding in the background to work a 360 degree collision detection – stealing from a few places.
Now that I am also getting a couple of older omni lenses:
I will happily grind off the clip ends so I can hot glue or otherwise to bottom of my Parrot as I planned some time ago now.
