camera viewing angle
show user profile  debodeebs
sorry for the questions but really trying to get as good as i can possibly get, anyways i know a human eye as a viewing of 45mm but when i use that settings in max on my camera it looks way to zoomed in so my question is how can i get a good view in a small 15ft by 11ft room with zooming out and making everything look stretched?

i can get a good view where a few items look well proportioned but then on the far end some items look longer and well out of proportion.

If you go for a lower mm camera it will be fish-eyed (distorted but with lots of depth). And vice versa.

For what you're asking for I'd go with a larger mm, say 88mm. Also delete or move the invisible walls (ones the camera can't see) so you can get your camera right in there.

A photographer would use a lens that allows wide angles. This introduces spherical distortion.
You might have luck with the camera correction modifier.


The human eye is about 95°.
