The difference in terms of visible horizontal FOV

To demonstrate the difference between these three cameras in terms of visible horizontal Field of View, we’ve created some triangles. These triangles represent the widest view that these cameras can generate when fully zoomed out, at 5 meters from the filmed object. Angle C is the location of the camera.
