    Why is the RGB FOV not wide on the D435?

    DrMaxP

      From the specs for the D435:

       

      Depth Field of View (FOV)—(Horizontal × Vertical × Diagonal)91.2 x 65.5 x 100.6 (+/- 3°)
      RGB Sensor FOV (Horizontal x Vertical x Diagonal)

      69.4° x 42.5° x 77° (+/- 3°)

       

      From the specs for the D415:

      Depth Field of View (FOV)—(Horizontal × Vertical × Diagonal)69.4° x 42.5° x 77° (+/- 3°)
      RGB Sensor FOV (Horizontal x Vertical x Diagonal)

      69.4° x 42.5° x 77° (+/- 3°)

       

      It seems a bit odd that the D435's RGB and DOF FOV do not match, like they do on the D415. Clearly, they've taken the same RGB camera arrangement and optics and used it for both.

       

      Can anyone comment. Surely this means that a significant part of the depth point cloud will have no RGB values?
