    Does anyone know how to set the Vision Field of View "FOV"? It states the that there are 3 FOV's available 140/120/90. I would like to set mine to the 90 degrees as the 140 is much to wide.
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Thank you. Which is the 90 degrees. I see the aspect ratio. Where is the 90 degrees?

    FOV is for VIDEO ONLY! (and even then, only for 1080 modes). There is no FOV setting for still photos.

    The unfortunately-misnamed "Size" setting is for still photos. But all it really does is change the ASPECT RATIO. Photos on the P2V camera are always 4384 pixels wide. The "Size" setting just crops the picture vertically to give you different aspect ratios, eg 4:3, 3:2, 16:9. The "Size" setting SHOULD have been named "Photo Aspect Ratio". Most people mistakenly think it has something to do with JPEG quality.

    When I open the app I will only see two FOV's instead of three. What does this mean?
