Odd question I know. I am considering getting a 4K Home Security Camera. I want to know how it will see my yard, so I took a photo where I will mount it using my phone. (Pixel 6a, focal 2.2 resulting image is 3024x4032) Specifically, I'm considering mounting it up very very high and want to know if I'll be able to get the detail I want, or if I should mount it 10 feet lower.)
4K resolution is apparently '3840 x 2160' so I am wondering if I scale my image to that resolution if I will have approximated a security camera.
I suppose the Security Camera will have wider field of view? Some say things like '2.8mm fixed lens with a max aperture of F2.4 and 40º-110º viewing angle' or '2.7mm ~ 13.5mm lens with a max aperture of F1.5 and 113° viewing angle'.
What would be the best way to get a sense of how my yard will look under these cameras without having to buy one and run all the cabling through the attic just to test it?
I understand this question is probably at the border of this StackExchange's acceptable questions, just hoping for some help...
