Depth of Field: Circles of Confusion


Uploaded by StrayAngelFilmsInc on Jul 9, 2011 Here's the first video in a series I'm going to do on depth of field. I really want to get into the nuts and bolts of how depth of field works and how to control it. To that end, I think the place to start is with circles of confusion, a concept that informs almost every other aspect of DOF. As always, please feel free to comment if you have any questions!!!

Simple DoF Calculator allows photographers to calculate the depth of field and hyperfocal distance for any given settings. It calculates the near limit, far limit, total depth of field, hyperfocal distance, distance in front of the subject and distance behind the subject. The app shows al those calculated values in a simple image without unnecessary information.

Just choose your camera, aperture, focal length and focus distance and it shows you the depth of field. Calculations are done in realtime so there is no need to press a 'calculate' button.
Simple DoF Calculator is so simple because it's easy to choose your camera settings, just turn the wheel. It saves all your settings, so the next time you open the application it shows your camera and your last used settings.
