What is so special about the EZCam HD?
The EZCam HD is specced out with 3D printer users in mind. We’ve used and sold the Logitech cameras for a while now but wanted something that offers better picture quality and features. The lens is a manual focus so you can lock in on your printer bed to get a crisp, clear picture without worrying about it changing.
Many webcams on the market have fixed focus or autofocus that make getting your printer bed that is close up hard to do without modification or advanced command-line configuration in Octoprint. Many cameras with autofocus struggle to keep in focus when mounted on a printer.
Inside the camera, we have a glass lens with an IR filter, a 1080p CMOS sensor, and hardware MJPEG encoding. This means that it delivers a clear image with minimal load on your Raspberry Pi CPU. The base that is normally used to set it on a computer monitor is easily detachable to attach the camera itself to a variety of mounts that we have designed so you can attach it to your printer bed mounts or frame easily.
STL Files For Mounting Where the camera attaches to the base there is a nut and screw inside that is accessible when you remove the plastic circles covering the ends. This bolt and nut are used to mount the camera to the STL files we designed for this camera. Included STL File Mount List:
