I have remixed the existing M12 lens adapter to fit the Pi V2 camera.
Apparently the mini connector on the V1 camera is centered whereas the V2 camera connector is offset.

I printed this and after cleaning up the supports, fits like a glove.

This works excellent. FYI you will have to take out the existing Pi Camera Lens

Hello, Is there a lens on raspberry pi camera v2 by default. Is it easy to take it out. I would like a buy a RPI camera (without IR filter), and would like to be able to change lenses and add IR filter as well.

Yes, there is, you'll have to remove it. Its not the easiest thing in the world, but its completely doable.
I would recommend you print a Pi camera lens spanner, such as this one : https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1574661
You print two of these, one to hold the body, the other to unscrew the lens.

Be careful though, once you remove the lense, the CMOS sensor is completely unprotected and vulnerable to even the smallest
speck of dust.

Thanks for designing this! I've got a couple questions about it - I want to use it for a camera project I am working on with RPI. I apologize in advance for my lack of familiarity - I am new to this.

Firstly, I'm wondering what filters you use on your M12 mount and where you get them. I am interested in some filters found here (http://midopt.com/mounting-solutions/custom-mounting/), that would slip on the end of this adapter. Have you, by chance, used these types of filters and mounting solution?

Also, what is the measurement of the outside diameter?


Cant say I have used any of those. I could not find the precise UV wavelength lowpass I needed, so I had a crystal disc custom cut and used a piece of heat-shrink tube to fasten it on top of the lens (leave just enough sleeve hanging beyond the filter so it wraps around the edge when shrinked)

I'm glad it worked for you!

Excellent work! I had been thinking of doing something like this, and here you've already done it for me. I think this M12 mount is a much better solution than the non-threaded, reversed microscope adaptor I did to get a longer lens with http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1565909
