lens conversion: HD/35 motion/35 stills

I'm trying to access a simple conversion formula
(potentially in the form of a published table!) for
focal length on an HD camera versus either 35 mm motion
lenses, or 35 mm stills.

I realize there are HD cameras with various sensor
sizes, and therefore different focal length factors.

But let's say a high end HD camera like the Panasonic
900 series. (Are these 2/3" sensors?)

Is this a naive request? Can anyone shed some light
on the conversion tables I'm after?

Thanks!

Thanks for the thought Brian, but I'm don't
understand the pananvision converter!
I'm too dumb maybe, but I'm not following
the width data it wants. The 'help' doesn't help.

I need something as simple as a director's
viewfinder, which lists the converstions for
the various focal lengths without getting
into frame widths, or sensor widths. Maybe
I'm asking for something too simple to exist.
