Canon 500D -> Sony HVR-Z1 **Equivlent Focal Lengths**
Hi guys, hope somone can help me with this.
I want to go to a location with a couple of mates as stand in actors (for working out marks/framing angles only) and plan out my shoot using a Canon 500D for still images, and then use these to build up a story board and decide what focal lengths to use for each shot when it comes to shooting with the Sony HVR-Z1.
Can anybody tell me how to work out what the equivlent focal lengths on the Sony would be to my Canon 500D SLR?
i.e if I took a picture at 24mm on my 500D what focal lenght would I need to set on the Sony to get the same shot?
Cheers in advance

It's a little bit of math, but here it goes.
Crop factor of 500d = 1.6
Crop factor of Z1u 1/3" sensor = 7.2
So you need to plug in some numbers and do some basic algebra:
