What is your favourite FOV settings? Do you use the default or custom camera settings? What is best and most natural? Share your visual settings...

You can calculate the correct FoV for your setup here: http://carsfov.moritzlawitschka.de/

My FoV is 83. I race in cockpit view and have disabled all the stuff like cockpit vibrations, speed sensitive FoV etc. World movement I have set to 100, so my cockpit remains fully static in respect to my TV.

Mine is 48, but the correct FOV really depends on the size of your monitor(s) and the distance you sit from them.
Apart from my FOV my settings are pretty much the same as Zenzic's above.

65 helmet cam ; on a 32 inch tv about 3 foot in front of me. Calculator works out lower but find perspective a bit weird around tight corners below 60

Yes fov should be set correctly depending on screen size and distance. I do not reccomend fake extra wide that people often favour under the false assumption that it increases a sense of speed. Set the fov wrong and you will reduce your ability to judge speed and distance.

Mine is 80 degrees. My eyes are approx 21 inches from my 34 inch width (40 diagonal).

Cockpit view, all camera movement off as suggested above, but my WM is zero so my dash is moving and horizon more stable. The low wm is used as I feel that is what I see in a real car, and i believe the feedback from the dash moving realistically as you corner and brake is essential.

I find wm 50 plus feels quite sterile.

What is the real calculation?
1.Estimate with monitor's native resolution --Result 47!
2. Measure the monitor -- Result 53
This is worrying.
At Mr.Pix Fov calculater here:

The Fov is 47!
So wich is the ral data?

I found some inconsistencies with that calculator, so I use this triangle calculator, I am sure it gives correct results.

Length 'a' is distance to screen, length 'b' is half the screen WIDTH, not diagonal. Your fov is twice the angle 'B' given as the result.

I use a 55" screen and the fov calculator sets my fov so low that the speed sensation is almost non-existant.
Now I'm running 90 fov and it feels better. (More sense of speed-more adrenalin :))

Also on a 55inch but I use a fov of 53.

An Ophthalmologist told me the view for a human is 60 degrees. So, that's what I use with Trackir. I only have a single 21" monitor. I need to upgrade that.

When i used those calculator, it found it give a FoV maybe a bit too low, i couldn't see anything and the speed sensation was wierd. In the end, i found 58 to be the sweet spot. Well the lowest i could while still seeing something on my 24" display.

I've heard about this solution but I don't know if it's true.

1. take place in your racing seat.
2. put you arms out as you we're about to grap the edges of your screen with your hands.
3. the angle your arms are at is your FOV setting in-game.
