Introduction

The Mobius ActionCam is a small, durable video recorder often used as a helmet or dash camera. In its default factory configuration objects must be a minimum of several feet from the camera to be in reasonable focus. However, the lens can be manually adjusted to focus on objects up to approximately 4" away, allowing the device to be used for macro photography projects.

There is good idea to use WebcamViewer V1.0 (You don't need to install and it's free) in order to focus adjustment "online", connecting Your Mobius CAM to PC like WebCam.

Here the link to the soft: http://www.bustatech.com/webcamviewer-a-...
