Manual focus is handy for 3D Printing - wish there was a manual zoom too
Reviewed in the United States on April 22, 2021
Great camera - nice and clear picture and adapts well to various lighting situations. I'm using it with octoprint to monitor my 3D printer. It works well for this because I'm able to focus it precisely on the workpiece. I will say, though, that I wish it had a manual zoom as well as focus so that I could frame the timelapse videos I capture just the way I want. For larger pieces, it's great to have the wide field of view, but for smaller pieces, I'd like the option to zoom in. So the lack of a zoom adjustment and the overall size are the only reasons I have withheld the fifth star. I find it to be a little large for my tastes, especially for travelling along the printer bed as I have in my setup (see photo). It's a little bulky/heavy to travel along the bed, so it ends up vibrating quite a bit when my print bed switches directions. The high frame rate (60fps) makes up for the vibration for the most part, though, so that's another point in its favor. The third photo in my review was taken with very low light and as you can see, it does a good job at lightening the picture to compensate. Altogether, I'd definitely recommend!
