FPV Camera Lens Comparison Guide



1.7mm lens has approximate 170 degree field of view
2.1mm lens has approximate 158 degree field of view
2.5mm lens has approximate 147 degree field of view
2.8mm lens has approximate 130 degree field of view
2.9mm lens has approximate 127 degree field of view (Natural Human eye)
3.6mm lens has approximate 92 degree field of view
4.3mm lens has approximate 88 degree field of view
6.0mm lens has approximate 78 degree field of view
8.0mm lens has approximate 58 degree field of view
12 mm lens has approximate 28 degree field of view

I prefer 2.8mm as it makes FPV feel the most natural

Hi Blusky1, great information, thank you. I wanted to ask you a question. I fly with FPV with a 3.6mm lens on a 420 from securitycamera2000. The image is fish eye and it's a bit awkward when flying by objects to tell how close I am. I wrote to the company and they suggested a 6mm lens or an 8mm lens for a more natural view, not fish eye. I notice that you perfer the 2.8mm lens, but wouldn't that be even more fish eye than 3.6, 6, or 8mm? Thanks again for your information, can you help me to decide which lens to get?
