The camera is not a typical FarmBot tool in the sense that it does not mount onto the universal tool mount and it is not stored in a toolbay. Instead, it remains fixed in place on the z-axis next to the UTM and can be used at any time, even when other tools are mounted.

The camera itself is a borescope style camera that is fully waterproof. It can be used to take photos for weed detection, phenotyping research, or time lapse photography of your plants growing.

Step 1: Attach the camera to the z-axis

Sandwich the camera between the two camera mount half pieces. Then attach the camera and mounts to the z-axis using the two M5 x 10mm screws and a 40mm nut bar.
