On focal length

The picture angle of this camera is narrower than that of a 35 mm-format camera. You can find the approximate equivalent of the focal length of a 35 mm-format camera, and shoot with the same picture angle, by increasing the focal length of your lens by half.

For example, by using a 50 mm lens, you can get the approximate equivalent of a 75 mm lens of a 35 mm-format camera.
