A small application for amateur photographers to compute the depth of field values of your photographs.
Choose your camera type and unit of measure in settings window.
Just set the wheels for focal length, aperture and focus distance in calculator window and program will calculate depth of field and closest/furthest distances of acceptable sharpness.
Very easy to use! You can use this application with almost any camera as a lot of crop factors are supported.
A useful tool especially for people who prefer to shoot with manual focus lenses.

Focal length

In most photography, where the subject is essentially infinitely far away, longer focal length (lower optical power) leads to higher magnification and a narrower angle of view; conversely, shorter focal length or higher optical power is associated with a wider angle of view.
Camera lens focal lengths are usually specified in millimetres (mm).
Due to the popularity of the 35 mm standard, camera–lens combinations are often described in terms of their 35 mm equivalent focal length, that is, the focal length of a lens that would have the same angle of view, or field of view, if used on a full-frame 35 mm camera.
Use of a 35 mm-equivalent focal length is particularly common with digital cameras, which often use sensors smaller than 35 mm film, and so require correspondingly shorter focal lengths to achieve a given angle of view, by a factor known as the crop factor.

Aperture (F-number)

In optics, the f-number (sometimes called focal ratio, f-ratio, f-stop, or relative aperture[1]) of an optical system is the ratio of the lens’s focal length to the diameter of the entrance pupil.

Camera & Crop factor

In digital photography, a crop factor is related to the ratio of the dimensions of a camera’s digital sensor compared to 35 mm film format as a reference.
This ratio is also commonly referred to as a focal length multiplier (\”FLM\”) since multiplying a lens focal length by the crop factor or FLM gives the focal length of a lens that would yield the same field of view if used on the reference format.
Most DSLRs on the market have nominally APS-C-sized image sensors, smaller than the standard 36 × 24 mm (35 mm) film frame.
For example, many Canon DSLRs use an APS-C sensor that measures 22.2 mm × 14.8 mm.
The result is that the image sensor captures image data from a smaller area than a 35 mm film SLR camera would, effectively cropping out the corners and sides that would be captured by the 36 mm × 24 mm ‘full-size’ film frame.
Because of this crop, the effective field of view (FOV) is reduced by a factor proportional to the ratio between the smaller sensor size and the 35 mm film format (reference) size.
For most DSLR cameras, this factor is 1.3–2.0×. For example, a 28 mm lens delivers a moderately wide-angle FOV on a 35 mm format full-frame camera, but on a camera with a 1.6 crop factor, an image made with the same lens will have the same field of view that a full-frame camera would make with a ~45 mm lens (28 × 1.6 = 44.8).
This narrowing of the FOV is a disadvantage to photographers when a wide FOV is desired. Ultra-wide lens designs become merely wide; wide-angle lenses become ‘normal’.
However, the crop factor can be an advantage to photographers when a narrow FOV is desired. It allows photographers with long-focal-length lenses to fill the frame more easily when the subject is far away.
A 300 mm lens on a camera with a 1.6 crop factor delivers images with the same FOV that a 35 mm film format camera would require a 480 mm long focus lens to capture.
Using an FLM of 1.5, for example, a photographer might say that a 50 mm lens on his DSLR \”acts like\” its focal length has been multiplied by 1.5, by which he means that it has the same field of view as a 75 mm lens on the film camera that he is more familiar with.
Of course, the actual focal length of a photographic lens is fixed by its optical construction, and does not change with the format of the sensor that is put behind it.

Camera & Circle of confusion

Circle of confusion (“CoC”) is used to determine the depth of field, the part of an image that is acceptably sharp. A standard value of CoC is often associated with each image format, but the most appropriate value depends on visual acuity, viewing conditions, and the amount of enlargement.

Depth of field and hyperfocal distance equations

Hyperfocal Distance

The hyperfocal distance is the closest distance at which a lens can be focused while keeping objects at infinity acceptably sharp.
When the lens is focused at this distance, all objects at distances from half of the hyperfocal distance out to infinity will be acceptably sharp.
The hyperfocal distance is entirely dependent upon what level of sharpness is considered to be acceptable.
The criterion for the desired acceptable sharpness is specified through the circle of confusion (CoC) diameter limit.

Setting focus at the Hyperfocal Distance gives maximum depth of field from H/2 to infinity.

H = (L x L) / (f x d)

H = Hyperfocal Distance (in millimeters)
L = lens focal length (ie, 35mm, 105mm)
f = lens aperture f-stop
d = diameter of circle of least confusion (in millimeters)

Near Focus Limit

NF = (H x D) / (H + (D – L))

NF = Near Focus Limit (millimeters)
H = Hyperfocal Distance (in millimeters, from above equation.)
D = lens focus distance (in millimeters)
L = lens focal length (ie, 35mm, 105mm)

Far Focus Limit

FF = (H x D) / (H – (D – L))

FF = Far Focus Limit (millimeters)
H = Hyperfocal Distance (in millimeters, from above equation)
D = lens focus distance (in millimeters)
L = lens focal length (ie, 35mm, 105mm)
