    Re: Depth of Field Calculator

    the funny thought just got to me..

    youre outdoors, going to shoot a barn and some trees in the far background. you set the tripod, set the camera, whip out the app..you input some numbers, it says from 10ft to 70ft in range.

    now what? you go take a long range measuring stick and measure where 70ft ends to see what you want in focus, is?

    Simple...

    After computing the radius, apply two-points of Kentucky Windage (multiply by the crop factor if shooting DX) then apply a chi-squared distribution to the sum of the squares. Why do you guys insist on making this so hard??!!

    Rocketman beat me to the punch. How else would you know the distance? Plus, all that crap takes time. Sometimes, you don't have time and that's where the knowledge kicks in.

    Us nerdy types use laser range finders these days. The old measuring wheels and yard sticks are so 1990s.
