Hello all,

We are using a P4P v2 for mapping/surveying applications. I am trying to get the specs for the sensor to calculate the photo footprint at a given flight altitude.

I am aware of the following regarding the sensor: focal length=8.8mm, the field of view=84°, sensor width=3648 px, sensor height=5472 px

I also need to know the following: sensor width & height in millimeters

Also, can anyone tell me what the 24 mm dimension is describing under sensor specifications for the P4P?


Any help would greatly be appreciated.

The sensor is likely to be 12.8 x 9.6 mm.

There is nothing that measures 24mm.
The lens of your drone camera is described as FOV 84° 8.8 mm 24 mm (35 mm format equivalent) f/2.8 - f/11 auto focus at 1 m - ∞
That just means that the viewing angle is the same as a 24mm lens on a full-frame 35mm camera.
Because 35mm photography was the standard for so long, lenses are commonly described that way.
