I've been rehearsing with a PD150 zoomed to 6mm and want to know what the equivalent focal length is in 35mm spherical.
The formula for working this out would be useful.
Thanks!

Equivalent focal lengths can be worked out here.

To get an equivalent 35mm focal length for a 1/3" size, just multiply by 7.

So, 6mm x 7 = 42mm in 35

Of course, equivalent FOV will differ depending on the aspect ratio you intend to shoot in 35.
