This DoF calculator Provides the Focus Range from a Lens and Sensor Combination.
Camera Depth of Field Calculator
This camera calculator allows you to determine the depth of field (DoF) of a camera based upon the selected system configuration. The depth of field can be characterized by three metrics: Hyperfocal Distance, Near Focus Distance, and Far Focus Distance. The depth of field for a camera is dependent upon the camera sensor pixel pitch, the lens effective focal length, and the lens F/#.
- The Hyperfocal Distance is the distance at which a lens should be focused to achieve acceptable focus out to infinity.
- The Near Focus Distance is the closest distance which will be in focus, given a specific focus distance. When a camera is focused at the Hyperfocal distance, the Near Focus Distance is equal to half of the Hyperfocal distance.
- The Far Focus Distance is the further distance which will be in focus, given a specific focus distance. When a camera is focused at the Hyperfocal distance, the Far Focus Distance is equal to Infinity.
We provide custom calculations as part of our consulting services and for volume lens RFQ purchasing. These include Depth of Field plotting and optimization. Example use-cases and projects include endoscopy and finite conjugate lens design.
