I was worried after looking at crop factor that this camera would be lacking at wide angles, I like the way you can compare lenses. I've got a tokina 11-16 and worked out equivalent on my slr and have been wondering around the house framing stuff. It's easy wide enough for me :).
Thanks for posting and abelcine for inclusion.

This calculator is very useful and helps to clear up the misconception that field-of-view is lens brand/mount related. I would have preferred a natural landscape shot. The extreme moire on those buildings hurts my eyes and brain. :eek:

Wait... so how does this work. Camera A is the reference? Because a crop factor of 0.4 seems... odd? (I am sorry, I am not good with these format relationships.)

Well...which camera do you have for your A?

It's about comparing in order to match.

I love that Abel FoV calculator. You can do the same comparisons with an iPhone and pCAM.

That's the 5DM2 simulation. ;-)

Very cool, just wish it went below 10mm, because a lot of the fixed-lens HD cameras have shorter lenses (like the EX1, 5.8mm at wide).

For some reason I don't get the image in the boxes. Anyone else have this issue, or idea why?

I believe you need an HTML 5 compatible browser to view it. Maybe check your browser version?
