EagleEye IV 4x or 12x?

Which camera would be recommended for a 10m x 4m room and 6m x 4m room?  Is there a general guide available for room size vs camera option?

 

Thanks.

Peter,

 

It's enough simple to choose the right camera. EE IV cameras give 65 grad. angular horizontal Field of View. At the maximum zoom the linear horizontal FOV will be: with 12x camera - about 0.1 by the distance, with 4x - 0.3. For example at 8 m distance (10 m room and a person at the far end of table) linear FOV will be about 2.4 m with 4x camera, at 5 m distance - 1.5 m. In both cases the FOVs seem to be too large to show a Talking Head (~0.2 m). So it can be recommended to use 12x camera in both rooms.
