Thanks for the link, Man. I'll check it out!Man-Fai Wong said:Hi, Jarrell.
I use their site from time to time, but not the portable calculators in the field. I've read of plenty of folks who use the cut-out, paper dial one though -- and I'm sure quite a few folks here are aware of that site also. If I were still carrying around a PalmPilot, I would probably try the Palm-based calculator. OTOH, I don't often feel the need for DoF calculation as I don't usually shoot landscapes or macros.
BTW, if you often shoot w/ a Wintel laptop nearby, you might also consider trying this calculator too:
Thanks Joe. BTW.. how do you like the 500D? Also, you have some excellent photographs on your pbase site.joecolson said:DOF Master is good and I use their software to create DOF charts for my lenses. There are also programs for either the PocketPC or Palm Pilot that calculate DOF and hyperfocal. First read this: http://luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/understanding-series/dof.shtml
then this: http://luminous-landscape.com/reviews/pocket_pc.shtml#DOF and finally get the software here: http://www.dl-c.com/Temp/.
The PocketPC application is easy to use and very convenient. I also use the Ephemeris program that calculates sunrise/sunset/moonrise/moonset/moon phase for any location and date.
