This is indicating the area of the scene that is visible to the camera. In the Modify panel, you will see there is an option that says Show Cone, and in fact, if that is on, then the Frustum will always be displayed, even if the camera is not selected.

It's currently 45 degrees, so that means the angle here of this Frustum or Cone is 45 degrees. So if I increase that Field of View, we are going to get a wider angle shot to take in more of the scene. Notice that Fiel...
