Different Lenses Available
There are several different lenses available for this camera. The smaller the mm lens, the wider the view. The larger the mm lens, the more narrow the view. The 3.6m lens is suited for wide-angle viewing, whereas the 25mm lens is suited for telephoto "zoomed in" applications.
Use the following number for mm and Field of View (FOV) determination
- 3.6mm Lens @ 25ft away sees 25ft width
- 6mm Lens @ 25ft away sees 15ft width
- 8mm Lens @ 25ft away sees 11ft width
- 12mm Lens @ 25ft away sees 7ft width
- 16mm Lens @ 25ft away sees 5 1/2ft width
- 25mm Lens @ 25ft away sees 3 1/2ft width
These numbers are for viewing 25ft away. If you're viewing further away (like 50ft), you would simply double the width.
