Hi All

I have come across this problem and it's giving me some jip.

I have a function

I would like to be able to put in the field of view and then solve for the focal length. Is this possible, what with

there being 2 internal variables?

Many thanks in advance.

David

I see it, but I don't believe it.

Not without knowing 'width' too.

Hi;

You can solve for it but there will still be one more variable.
