This is the 6mm CS-mount wide angle lens from CGL Electronics Co. Ltd. for use with the Raspberry Pi HQ Camera Module. The lens produces a 3MP picture in a 0.5in image format and is easily interchangeable using the thumb screw and adapter included with the Pi HQ camera module.
This wide angle lens has a variety of applications when you need a large field of view (FOV) for projects like a DIY smart video doorbell, CCTV/home security, wildlife camera, or upgrade to IoT & robotics applications.
Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.

Lens worked well with the RPi HQ camera. The only thing that was a bit confusing is that you need to remove the CS lens adapter that comes installed on the HQ camera. Otherwise the lens is too far from the sensor and you can not focus. This is not noted anywhere, took some Googling to find the problem.
