    I feel like we must have had different tools... Mine was very short and wide, and it gets nowhere even close. I'd have to drill out like a 3/4" hole to get it to the camera.

    I'm assuming the RPi V2 camera is an upgrade from the original camera. Someone let me know if I'm wrong; I don't want to buy it if it's the same one.

    Regardless, I am going to upgrade the camera and fix that pesky angle. It is rather annoying.

    Ok, this kinda sucks. I bought the new V2.1 camera, printed out the parts to fix the angle, then installed. It was out of focus so I was going to try and adjust the lens a bit, but I wanted to practice on the original camera. While doing so, I realized it was the exact same camera. I already had the 2.1 in my R2! Well, at least I have a replacement now right?
