Focal length is not an useful value, since its numeric value depends on the size of the sensor, which is information totally opaque to the user (a 35 mm wide sensor, the size of old-fashioned film, will have a "medium wide angle" focal length of 35 mm; a 9 mm wide sensor will have the same angle of view with a 9 mm lens).

We should use angle of view as the selection parameter. Surprisingly, ImageCapture, which incorporates a "zoom" control, hasn't solved this problem.
