Sort of

This time most of the pictures saved vs. almost none

I have to add this file size check

I almost thought when I got the field that it was broken, since I stopped a battery profiling test (takes hours eg. 8) but thankfully it was working still, had to get past a white screen, probably a white on white text to background situation.

Got some cool shots though.

The v3 ultrawide was disappointing, damn... at least stretched out, too much detail.

Some pics from camera/lenses

There's a weird w shape distortion with the wide, idk it's easier to tell when you have uniform lines

The 16mm telephoto lens has some really nasty bright spots idk how to explain it, I'm not sure if the one I got is bad or this is just how it is... next time I have $50 to drop I'll get another one to test.

This could be a cool pic if it didn't have the crazy background branches popping out of the blur

I don't want to say it, but I think right now the 8-50mm arducam lens is the best lens I have for the HQ cam. The 16mm just has correct color vs. the 8-50mm (slight purple tint).

This is also with the 16mm and I focused on the tree.

Here's an 8-50mm shot in comparison

The v3-standard was the best though I also hate to say since the HQ cam supposedly will have legit lenses.

These trees are called "red buds"

Cool macro vibes here v3 standard again

Last frame from sunset timelapse which was bad since I had 25 mins left of light and each photo was taken every 5 mins ha.
