I would like to use one, or maybe two wyze cameras to capture time release shots of cnc router carving projects. This is a dusty area over hours of recording. Will accumulated dust in the room degrade my image quality, and are there any suggestions to maintain a good image quality in a dirty environment? Also does any body know the minimum focus distance. I do not see a specification for that.
Same as the the workpiece, air is the only way to keep it clean. And if there’s a distance, I’ve yet to find it. While working on them, I’ve seen the stitching in my jeans with the cam in my lap.
Well you know dust is going to be a problem in the wood shop on a CNC.
Best thing you can do is just try things out but , to keep the dust off the camera you could set up a small 3 or 4 inch fan blowing across the camera or use an airline with low pressure and low volume , maybe a diffuser type of thing on an airline to slow down and spread out that air flow.
You could cover that back to keep dust from getting inside the camera , use a fish tank pump with a small hose pointing at the front of the camera to blow air on it , I used one on a scroll saw I had to keep the cut line clear , worked good.
Maybe you could use a dust collection hose to draw air a crossed the camera to keep dust from sticking to the lens and camera.
Might be better just to incase the camera in a clear plastic box.
