I noticed in the Homebrew Pics section that none of the cameras accomodate a hole in the enclosure for the AutoFocus sensor (nor does mine). Any idea why this is not needed? Is this because the sensor would detect the glass in the enclosure? Does the camera default to inifinity with this blocked

I think the camera defaults to infinity, like you said, focus don't seem to be a problem anyway.

I don't know if the focus beam would go thru the glass or not.  I remember that my old camera with autofocus said it "would" go thru a window as long as the subject was off at an angle to the window.  The IR beam would reflect off the window glass if the subject was straight out from the window.......

I think what they mean't was if the focus beam bounced off the window, the window would be "in focus", so to prevent that "and make the camera adjust to infinity" angle the subject as above.....

at any rate, focus don't seem to be a problem.
