I want to match Houdini camera to photo I have. I have only this info about photo

Of course I do not need perfect match, but something I can work with.

I read this several times but honestly I am still not sure what to do

In the scene view, press ‘d’ to open display options -> background -> set an image and check ‘show background’. This shows the image in the viewport, from where you can use the camera controls to frame your shot. Once rendered, composite the output onto the background plate in COPS.

Thanks .

I am aware of that, mostly what I need is how to transform camera data, focal length to Houdini one. So I can match perspective closer.
I manage to figure it out, crop factor of this camera was what confused me. Now I have something so I can work with.
