Camera DOF Calculator

Camera DOF Calculator

SHAIK AHMED

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 all 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.

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.

How High or Far

How High or Far

Colmertech LLC

Measure the height of, or the distance to an object.
Great for finding out the height of that tree in your backyard (without climbing it!).

Using the iPhone's camera, sight the object through the cross-hairs. The iPhone's accelerometers are used to obtain an accurate elevation angle to the object.
Enter the distance to the object and its height can then be calculated. Alternatively, if the object's height is know, then the distance to it may be calculated.

The image with overlaid measurements can be saved as a photograph.

Features
- use cross-hairs overlaid on the iPhone's camera display to accurately measure the elevation angle to the object
- calculate either the height of, or the distance to an object
- a button to hold the angle to allow easy adjustment of other parameters
- includes optional height offset to add a fixed value to the height calculation
- ability to safe the image with measurement details as a photograph
- can be used as an educational tool to teach trigonometry
- metric and imperial measure

Tack Sharp 2.0

Tack Sharp 2.0

Chris Hunt

Tack Sharp 2.0 is a complete re-write of the original 2009 Tack Sharp, an already well-established and much utilized app for photographers. In addition Tack Sharp 2.0 adds Apple Watch support.

Tack Sharp 2.0 helps photographers with rapid determination of camera settings for the sharpest focus range of multiple subjects. Tack Sharp allows photographers to explore different camera settings before shooting, to decide which settings to use for optimal focus.

A swipe gesture reveals user settings including Day and Night options for outside or studio photography. The Tack Sharp 2.0 engine is customizable with five other settings: preferred units (meters or feet); six different camera sensor formats which each provides a recommended "circle of confusion"; the ability to enter a specific "circle of confusion" for other sensor sizes or personal preferences; and specification of the number of f/stops and stop increments to be used, all ensuring this tool will work effectively for any photographer in a wide range of situations, cameras, and lenses, as part of their personal photographic process.

Tack Sharp 2.0 setting changes are communicated to a connected App Watch instantly.

Apple Watch support allows photographers the same focusing optimization tool on their wrist and avoids the struggle of handling an iPhone and a camera together. The interface is a direct parallel to the iPhone interface, offering intuitive ease of use.

Tack Sharp 2.0 uses standard equations for Depth of Field, so there is no mystery to the internal workings and users can place their full confidence in the calculations. What makes Tack Sharp different is the simple user interface and approach, to be used as a practical tool for any level of photographer, without any fuss or complexity.

CicadaWing

This App contains more than 130 lenses of Canon mount.Lenses include Canon,Sigma,Tamron,Tokina,Zeiss,Voigtlander and Samyang.
This App also has many calculators for photographic formulas, include DoF Calculator, FoV Calculator, FoA Calculator, CoC Calculator, Magnification Calculator.

Functions as follows:
1 Measurements:
Contains Sharpness,Distortion,Vignetting,Chromatic Aberration and Specification data. Some lens at the same time with Full-Frame DSLR and APS-C DSLR data.
2 Ratings:
Lens in accordance with the Sharpness, Distortion, Vignetting, Chromatic Aberration sort, and follow the lens is listed first.You can focus the lens of interest, the level of these lenses can be easily seen in the sort.
3 Comparisons:
You can contrast at all focal lengths and aperture any lens, and results in accordance with the focal length divided into a number of forms.
4 Depth of Field Calculator:
This view lets you calculate the depth of the field of acceptable sharpness in a displayed image. This depends on the subject distance, focal length, aperture, and the circle of confusion (CoC). The program calculates the CoC value based on the film size, but you can put your own value in, if you like.
5 Hyperfocal Distance Calculator:
In Depth of Field tab display.
5 Field of View Calculator:
The "field of view" calculator lets you solve two photographic problems. The primary one is, given a film size, lens length and distance to the subject, how much of the subject fits in the frame? By fiddling with the calculator a bit, you can also solve a slightly different problem: given a film size and lens length, how far away does one have to be to take a picture of a subject of a certain size?
6 Angles of View Calculator;
Imagine a rectangular pyramid projected from your camera's lens, with the point just behind the imaging area. This pyramid expands from this point to enclose the imaging area and then out through the lens to encompass the area that the camera can "see." The imaging area's aspect ratio forms the shape of the pyramid, and the lens's focal length dictates how that pyramid spreads from the camera outwards. A shorter focal length results in a flatter pyramid, and the wider the imaging area's aspect ratio, the less symmetrical the pyramid's base is.
7 Diameter of circle of confusion Calculator:
This view lets you calculate the diameter of circle of confusion.

Lumariver Depth of Field Calculator

Lumariver Depth of Field Calculator

Xarepo AB

The Lumariver Depth of Field Calculator is an app that helps you maximize the sharpness of your photographs. It’s primarily intended for landscape, architecture and all other genres where the goal is to have a sharp image front to back. Rather than being a calculator for theoretical exercises it’s designed for being a practical tool in the field, and it has a thorough user manual that describes real use cases. The user interface is optimized for one-hand operation using scrollers.

In addition to the normal depth of field calculator it supports tilted depth of field (tilt-shift lenses, Scheimpflug principle) as well as focus stacking. The functions you don't intend to use can be turned off to keep the user interface as clean and simple as possible. Custom circle of confusion sizes can be set, which in addition to a fixed number may be relative to airy disc diameter and/or pixel pitch. It even supports dual circle of confusion sizes, one “sharp” and one “soft” to make it easy to do controlled trade-offs in difficult situations. By entering your own camera(s) and lenses once you have them easily accessible by name making the workflow efficient in the field.

Distances can be shown either in meters or in decimal feet.
