Field of View

Field of View is a specification used to describe how ‘wide’ a lens can view a scene.  A 28mm lens on a full frame camera will have about a 75° field of view, while a 200mm lens will have about 12°.  The shorter the focal length, the wider the field of view. Angle of view is also referred to as ‘Angle of View’.
