Focal Length

Focal Length is a number used to describe a lens, with the length measured in millimetres. The focal length is the distance between the sensor and the ‘point of sharp focus’ in a lens when it is focused at infinity.  A lens with a focal length of 20mm would be considered a wide angle lens, while a lens with a focal length of 200mm would be considered a telephoto lens.
