The camera lens options control the way 3D objects are represented in a 2D image.


This matches how you view things in the real world. Objects in the distance will appear smaller than objects in the foreground, and parallel lines (such as the rails on a railroad) will appear to converge as they get farther away.


With Orthographic perspective objects always appear at their actual size, regardless of distance. This means that parallel lines appear parallel, and do not converge like they do with Perspective.

Render from the same camera angle as the previous examples, but with orthographic perspective.


Panoramic cameras only work in Cycles. See the Cycles panoramic camera settings for more information.

Focal Length

/Field of View
The focal length controls the amount of zoom, i.e. the amount of the scene which is visible all at once. Longer focal lengths result in a smaller FOV (more zoom), while short focal lengths allow you to see more of the scene at once (larger FOV, less zoom).

Perspective camera with 35 mm focal length.

Perspective camera with 210 mm focal length instead of 35 mm.

Lens Unit

The focal length can be set either in terms of millimeters or the actual Field of View as an angle.

While the camera is moving towards an object the Focal Length property can be decreased to produce a Dolly Zoom camera effect, or vice versa.

This video demonstrates the Dolly Zoom camera effect.

Orthographic Scale

This controls the apparent size of objects projected on the image.

Note that this is effectively the only setting which applies to orthographic perspective. Since parallel lines do not converge in orthographic mode (no vanishing points), the lens shift settings are equivalent to translating the camera in the 3D View.


Shift X/Y

Allows for the adjustment of vanishing points. Vanishing points refer to the positions to which parallel lines converge. In these render examples, the most obvious vanishing point is at the end of the railroad.

Horizontal lens shift of 0.330.

Rotation of the camera object instead of a lens shift.

Notice how the horizontal lines remain perfectly horizontal when using the lens shift, but do get skewed when rotating the camera object.


Using lens shift is equivalent to rendering an image with a larger FOV and cropping it off-center.

Clip Start/End

The interval in which objects are directly visible, Any objects outside this range still influence the image indirectly, as further light bounces are not clipped.


For viewport rendering, setting clipping distances to limited values is important to ensure sufficient rasterization precision. Ray tracing renders do not suffer from this issue so much, and as such more extreme values can safely be set.

When Limits in the Display panel is enabled, the clip bounds will be visible as two yellow connected dots on the camera line of sight.
