View in App Store


Simple DoF Calculator allows photographers to calculate the depth of field and hyperfocal distance for any given settings. The app works on your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Just choose your camera, aperture, focal length and focus distance and it shows you the depth of field.

Frequently Asked Questions

My application doesn't work anymore, what can I do?

Delete it and let iTunes reinstall your application.

My camera does not appear to be in the camera list, but it is listed in your app description. How can I select my camera?

In the camera list there is a refresh button at the top, if you press it the app will start loading new cameras.

A full-frame camera has less dof than a crop-sensor, your app is wrong?

A full-frame camera only has a smaller dof than a crop camera if they have the same field of view. If you compare those cameras in the app, with the same settings, you have a different field of view for each camera. In that case the full-frame camera has the bigger dof.

I have a crop-camera, do I need to set the lens value to mm * cropfactor?

No, if you choose your camera in the camera list the app does that conversion for you.

What is the Circle of Confusion?

The Circle of Confusion (CoC) is almost impossible to explain in non-technical terms. You shouldn't worry about it if you're just beginning as a photographer. The CoC is used to indicate the sensor size of the camera and calculate the depth of field.

What is the Hyper Focal Distance?

The Hyper Focal Distance is the distance beyond which all objects are acceptably sharp if you focus on that distance. You can also tap the Hyper Focal Distance, then the app sets that distance as the Focus Point.
