This Camera Field of View Calculator Provides the Lens Field of View from The Lens EFL and A Camera Sensor.
Camera Field of View Calculator
This calculator is designed for engineers and hobbyists who want to calculate the lens field of view on the fly. The allows you to accurately build a new digital imaging camera such as a surveillance camera or a DIY Raspberry Pi High Quality camera. This calculator outputs the camera's angle of view (Field of View) given a image sensor and a lens effective focal length. There are three values for field of view which are calculated: horizontal field of view, vertical field of view, and diagonal field of view.
The field of view is dependent upon the focal length of the lens, the image sensor size, and the lens distortion. Currently, this calculator does not factor in optical distortion so the output values will only be correct for systems that have <5% distortion.
Instructions: To use the calculator, enter the value(s) and press Tab or click any white area. The next section will open.
