I saw a similar posting (http://forums.openmv.io/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=929&p=5829&hilit=m12+to+C+mount#p5829) to this question but it got a bit off topic so I thought to ask a new one. So, I have seen as high as a 50mm M12 lens (from a few different companies) that I am pretty sure will have no problem working with the Open MV sample scripts for reading bar codes. I did try the telephoto lens sold by Open MV but the range wasn’t far enough to do what I needed. I was about to purchase one of the 50 mm lenses I have seen out there for M12 but then one person recommended using an adapter from M12 to C Mount which was mentioned in the previous Open MV post listed above. I have located an adapter online for purchase but was curious if a C mount lens would still work with the barcode reading open MV script? I would think that anything passed to the board from any lens would act the same way as the standard M12 lenses do but I wanted to reach out to the community before just buying some stuff that may not work. Clearly I will have more options for focal length if I go to C mount lenses but the price does go up and I’m not sure I can spend the money just to find out. Any suggestions? Sorry if this should have been an add on to the existing forum post listed above.
Thanks in advance,
