A photography app wants me to enter my camera's details:

Hugin Camera and Lens data

I have no idea what these numbers means (I entered the numbers pretty randomly), but I know the brand/model of my camera.

Is there a database that gives these values for most popular cameras/smartphones?

  • Horizontal field of view
  • Focal length
  • Focal length multiplier

The Load lens data... button asks for a .ini file, so a database of such files would be great too.

  • In the JavaScript file you linked to, are you talking about the var l= array towards the top? To me it looks like a list of captors, rather than a list of cameras or lenses. Feb 23 '18 at 4:09
  • yeah, but i meant to link to the form too, my bad. pointsinfocus.com/tools/… that form populates with fov data, i didn't really go through the js file entirely. just did quick swoop, so i could be entirely off here.
