    I thought I read some documentation that said the Vision 2+ lens could be set for either 110 or 85 degrees. Yet I haven't been able to discover the way to do that yet. Any answers? And thank you.

    In the app on your ios/droid in 1080p setting a side window allows choice of wide or narrow (110/85)

    In all other video settings the default is wide = 110.

    its funny to see the print on the camera bezel which says "140 FOV" when the max is 110 -- still plenty wide needing fisheye correction.

    The 110 is called Medium. The 140 wide or full FOV is only available in still photo mode, and is the only FOV available for stills.

    Actually, the lens is fixed at 140 degrees. The sensor is the piece that changes the FOV. The sensor is only sampled for certain areas to achieve the different/narrower FOV settings.
