Increasing FOV

  1. Jun 26, 2009 #1
    i have a camera with the horizontal field of view as 40 cm, and vertical around 30 cm noted at around 5m from the camera.
    I wish to increase the FOV of the camera. Please suggest me a few ways to accomplish that.

    1. For a field of view measured in cm instead of degrees, stand further from your subject.
    2. Buy a shorter focal length lens.
