Logitech C270 webcam mod - solution to the dreaded M8 lens mount

Recommended Posts

I bought the Logitech C270 webcam to dip my toe into astrophotography, as I'd heard good things and it is usually a straight-forward mod. A known risk was that sometimes the lens mount is M8, not M12. And the M8 is what I received!


Knowing others have faced this issue too I decided to CAD and print a solution. The files are attached here, or you can obtain them from thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4792840


It would be better to mount to the board, and I am thinking of doing a new design which will replace the lens mount itself, but for now this seems to work well - the lip on the housing (and therefore the new fascia) must be fairly parallel to the board, as I haven't noticed any issues. Plus you don't need to remove the board for this mod.


Cheers, Matt.
