Raspberry PI Camera and Camera Box

Post by andrewpi » Fri Aug 31, 2018 7:59 pm

I have the Raspberry P:I Camera Board - Night Vision & Adjustable-Focus Lens (5MP)
ModMyPi - Pi Model B+ 2/3/3B+ Camera Box

But the camera doesn't seem to fit properly.
The 4 holes in the box, don't quite match the 4 corner holes on the camera board.
Also, even if I secured it with only two screws, the actual lens doesn't quite match up the square hole in the box and
then, even if it did, I can't see how the adjustable focus lens and the IR LED parts would attach.

Are these two items supposed to be compatible?

If you have this camera module - https://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi/ca ... ion-camera

Then you will need the case that is designed for the night vision camera modules:

Either the bundle - https://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi/ca ... e-b-plus23

or the case on its own - https://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi/ca ... x-b-plus23

The other camera boxes are designed to only work with the official Raspberry Pi Camera modules.
