I am replacing a V3 that has a foggy lens with an OG. But I have it mounted useing the magnetic mount. I was wondering if anyone has removed the mount from a V3 and placed it on an OG? (I am waiting for my OG to arrive.)
I don’t think you are going to be able to do this easily.
The OG Mount Screw that goes into the bottom of the cam is an integrated Thumb Screw that you can’t use without its mount post.
The problem is, that screw is a different size than the screw that secures the Mount on the V3. So the screw that you get with the V3 Mount will not fit into the bottom of the OG. It isn’t the right size.
If you can find the right size screw to fit the OG, you might be able to get it to work though.
Here are some threads discussing it.
The Cam OG uses a nonstandard #8/32 screw mount for the camera stand. The v2/v3 cams use an industry standard 1/4"-20 screw mount, allowing you to use literally thousands of different 3rd-party mounts with your cam. It is very difficult to find a 1/4"-20 Female to 8/32 Male screw adapter. So…
Wyze, please make a new accessory: the Wyze 1/4"-20 Female to 8/32 Male screw adapter. It would greatly increase the versatility of the Cam OG and incent people to upgrade their Cam v2/v3 since they wo…
I got the new OG Telephoto to play around with and right off the bat I notice the mount is not great. It only has the ability to tilt in one direction (bearing), and this made it useless for me. There is no way to rotate the main stalk after the mount has been screwed down, such that the tilt notch can be aligned in the direction I needed.
Also, Wyze has changed the screw thread for the mount post to 4mm. This makes is incompatible with most mounts out there. Thanks for that Wyze (rolleyes) …
A word of warning about the new Wyze Cam OG, which I just got. There are 2 issues with the mount/stand that seriously compromise functionality versus the Cam v3 or Cam v2.
First, the Cam OG stand is pretty useless. It only has 2 axes of adjustability. So you can move the head up/down but not side-to-side. If you wanted to mount this stand on a wall in a hallway, for example, you can’t turn the camera to look down the hall.
Second, the size of the screw mount that is used to connect the sta…
I bought adapters on Amazon. They work fine.
You can use
M4 to 1/4-20 adapters. It’s ugly, but doable:
The fact the OG is not using a standard camera 1/4 inch mount is so silly!
