Simple DoF Calculator
By Dennis van den Berg
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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.
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.
Automatically uses feet or meters, based on you system regional settings or you can choose them yourself.
Aperture range: f/0.95 - f/64, focal length range: 3 mm - 1200 mm, focus distance range: 1 in. - 999 ft.

And a list of Circle of Confusion values.
Your camera isn't on the list? Let us know and we'll add it. With the refresh button you'll see if there are new cameras available and the app will download them immediately.
What's New in Version 4.1
Fixed multiple bugs
Tried a number of DoF calculators. Most suffer from inconvenient method to enter data: focal length, distance, f/stop; you have to erase current value, then use the keyboard to enter new values. So slow in practice. Many offer long lists of camera models to choose from; kinda nice but the DoF calulation mostly related to sensor size, not camera model. Likely you only need to do this once, though. Many cameras models use the same or equivilent sensor.
And lastly, the DoF formula is based on a specific value for the circle of confusion (CoC). (In fact when you pick a camera from the list, you are really selecting the CoC that will be used in the DoF calulation.) Many photographers prefer to choose a value that is somewhat smaller than commonly specified; this has the effect of suggesting a smaller f/stop and larger DoF.
Here's where this app shines: it uses scroll wheels to enter data. This makes it incredibly easy to fine tune the DoF values when making compositional changes to focal length using a zoom lens. And in addition to the common list of camera models, you can simply select the CoC you want to use. It also support two camera model (or CoC settings) if you have cameras with different sensors.
Whether you decide to use a Camera Model or select a CoC, this app is fast to use and easy to read DoF values. The fact that it's free is amazing!
Excellent program with no in-app purchases
Easy to use and does what it is supposed to do. Even offers no cost updates for new cameras. No attempt to sell me anything else. Nice.
I tried some other DoF apps but none compare to the slick interface and ease of use of this one. Well worth the couple bucks.
