Low profile M12 to CS lens adapter

Low profile M12 to CS lens adapter M12-TO-CS-ADAPTER was designed for wide-angle and fisheye lenses. These lenses typically feature a compact design and have a short back focal distance. The installation, however, can be slightly tricky as access to the M12 set screw is restricted. Below is recommended installation steps:
