There are different values used for field or angle of view. Sometimes
it's calculated across the sensor diagnonal, i.e. the diameter of the
image circle, sometimes across the width of the sensor. The number I
find much more photographically useful is the angle derived from the
width across the sensor in normal (landscape) mode. That tells me how
wide the standard view is without seriously tilting the camera to
squeeze more width out corner to opposite corner across the diagonal.
