Now look up the specs on several lenses and see which focal length most closly matches that field of view.

    There is probably a better way to do this direct measurement, but this is what I can come up with just now. I welcome other ideas on how to do this.

    iPad Air is not included in the tests but I have compared it to a regular iPad and the field of view looked to be identical.
