my board camera scopeless (so far)

Post by demonfox1 » 11 Feb 2016, 21:24

This is what I've built so far with an effio e board using 2 switchable ir cut filters back to back to cage the board using my fujinon f1.4 50mm ,haven't decided on the viewing part yet but impressed so far

Nice project! What camera did you use exactly? I'm thinking of building a cheap scopeless for my second airrifle. I want the ej230 and an CS lens adapter but not the pricetag that comes with that. How did you fix the lens to your Effio cam?
On a side note: that Spa does use mags right? Can't imagine how frustrating it would be to use a single shot pcp when out ratting. Reloading in the dark :crazy:

This is the link to the camera

to hold it in place used these

I took the cut cut filter bits out drilled and tapped the legs to m3 used brass washers to get focal length also had to cut into the board mount holes to fit the m3 and that then screws on to one of these

ill peel the tape of and take a photo in abit the cs lens is really good
I still need to cut the wires once I decide on the viewer
and the spa does have a mag it's a good little gun

the unit without the lens is using a 32 mm x 32mm effio e board I liked it cause the privacy masks stayed in colour when you were in b/w not the most important thing granted,it's fixed using m2 6 mm standoffs
It's now the test unit as when I removed the ir filter I took the next piece that covers the chip and put an annoying scratch on it :thumbdown:
This what I've done so far thought I would share

Very good idea to use the two IR filter holders. Maybe it is a bit pitty you did not leave the front filter in place - it would allow you to have day/night switch and see correct colors in daylight.

The only thing I do not like is the duct tape - you can do almost anything with it, I admit, but still... :-) Will by any chance some standard square tube fit over the two adapters?

Thanks jirka
The tape is just temporary to keep light and dirt out it will be changed that's the last bit to do,I originally built this using a front of a camera housing for the rear then 30mm spacers then with the cut switch intact at the front I was to big ,the idea of reversing 2 cut filters was to close the space around the board .
For my improved version I have the 1/2 inch cmos board slow boating it's way here that will fit inside the 2 cut filters with 5mm spacers

you could use these CS to C mount they fix straight onto the board camera

Then you could screw this into the C-mount to allow you to use an M42 lens

Morn gypo
I get what your saying I have those bits ,but how do I mount it, the way I've tried there is no weight on the board itself and can screw it to c mount tube which is a micro under 30mm straight into a mount ,ive tried to keep it simple cause I'm not confident in my machining skills :thumbdown:
I found this helpful to attach to daves tube 300929576732
I just thought that this was a rigid,simple and cheap way to mount a board camera as scopeless

I get your point at least with the method you have used the lens is supported and no weight on the board. It has given me an idea for a board cam/C-mount spotter. I Built a near eye board cam spotter a while back that was for an M42 lens here. I ve been thinking recently how to do the same but for a C-mount lens. with a bit of tweaking I think I can use your idea :thumbup:
