Hi Botball Teams,
Does any of the other teams have problems with the camera? We have two teams at our school and two of our cameras stopped working properly. The camera is completely blurry and we can't recognize anything through it. We can't just get new ones, since it worked at the workshop and stopped working after a few days.

If I recall correctly, the cameras have a manual focus adjustment on the lens. Try rotating the ring that goes around the lens and see if that helps. Also make sure there aren't any smudges on the lens by wiping them off with a microfiber cloth (if you have one) or some other soft fabric (a shirt, tissue, etc).
