Why will the lens not focus?
When a lens will not focus on an IQeye camera you want to check the type of lens being installed. There are two types of lens mounts, C-mount and CS-mount.  All IQeye cameras use a CS lens mount, and can accommodate either a CS-mount of C-mount lens. If a C-mount lens is being installed it will require a C-to-CS adapter. A C-to-CS adapter is a 5mm spacer that threads onto the camera to provide the appropriate spacing between the lens and the camera so the lens can focus.
Note:  All C-mount lenses shipped from IQinVision include the C-to-CS adapter ring.

Are IQeye cameras sensitive to infrared light?
IQeye cameras use color Megapixel, Wide VGA, or VGA image sensors. An infrared cut filter is placed in front of the image sensor for accurate color reproduction. Therefore IQeye cameras with a permanent infrared cut filer will not be sensitive to infrared light.   IQeye cameras with a movable Infrared cut filter will be sensitive to Infrared light. IQeye offers the IQ75x and Sentinel series cameras with true day/night functionality ensuring infrared sensitivity with black and white video at night.
