    Perspective issue

    Hi guys, I'm wondering if I can retrieve the position of a camera, based on few information.

    Precisely, if I know the two angles (a1,a2) and I know the size of the item the camera is seeing (h,w), can I get the camera distance (x,y)? I presume y will be directly proportional to h, for instance (y=h*?).

    I'm a bit lost at the moment

    Thanks a lot for any help!

    Also the angle between a1 and a2 is known. Now I'm trying to get the x comparing a1 and a2, and then see where I get from there.

    To mention, I just opened a branch exploring the law of sines approach
