I don't know if this as already been posted before, but here it anyway as it might help someone.

An online DOF calculator, the page is self explanatory:

If you need DOF calculator for S60 phones:

Someone once suggested to me (and I think it's a great idea) to take a picture of useful stuff like this and keep it, ie protect from deletion, on your SD card. You can just call it up when you need it and zoom in to read it.

It would be nice to have the DoF calculator built-in the camera directly, wouldn't it? Zoom, focus, press DoF preview... and get also the DoF calculation on the display based on the actual aperture, focal length and focused distance

Actually, the older lenses had it printed on them. First you focused, then looked to see where the focus lined up with the depth of field scale.

I meant it mostly as a joke, but... you wouldn't like a built-in DoF calculator in your camera? Precise, usable even with the new lenses, no more other DoF calculators or tables needed - imagine it!

some more DoF calculators ...

This seems like an old post, but today I got hold of 3 DoF calculators for phones that run Java ... I have tried these out with a Nokia 6300 ... and all three worked out ...

(1) Digital SLR DoF Calculator MIDlet for Mobile Phones

This one is the one I plan to keep, since I can match results with online tools, and an excel version I had built ... very simple and uncomplicated...

(2) curved-light.net - photography, 360 images and software

This calculates the Near, Far & Hyperfocal lengths, and also has Angle of View with no. of frames to cover 360 view etc based on focal length of the lens used ... possibly the slicker of the three ...

(3) Version 1.0 released! SourceForge.net: Project dofcalc

This is interesting since it tries to calculate either Focal Length, Aperture, Distance or DoF, based on any three provided ... so seems to be the most flexible ... but I couldn't get the same results as expected ... so I will track it's development since this was just v1 ...

Since these are Java based, these should run on most regular phones... I almost started picking up Java to make one for myself when all I could find were fancy iPhone apps ... (sigh)

Hope this helps ...
