The field of view, relative to a standard
lens in a 35mm still camera, expressed in degrees, e.g. 30°. For
practical purposes, this is the area that a lens can cover, where the
angle of view is determined by the focal length of the lens. A
wide-angle lens has a short focal length and covers a wider angle of
view than standard or telephoto lenses, which have longer focal lengths.
