What is the focal length?, in 35mm camera terms.

Asked by: eddiegh
I have found this question at https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/new-8-megapixel-camera-board-sale-25/ The correct reply seems to be below For area ratio, here are my numbers: SLR FF frame: 36 x 24 mm = 864 mm^2 IMX219 frame: 3.674 x 2.760 mm = 10.14 mm^2 Area Ratio: 864/10.14 = 85.21 Sqrt(Area Ratio) = 9.231 3.04 mm * 9.231 = 28.06 mm “equivalent” focal length (IMX219 sensor area is “active” area, not counting masked pixels)
