HYPERFOCAL DISTANCE TABLE PDF

You know that when the lens is focused at the hyperfocal distance, everything that falls at distances from half of this distance out to infinity will be acceptably sharp in the image. The hyperfocal distance chart is the fastest way to calculate the hyperfocal distance for the settings you need. Just introduce your camera, focal length and aperture and read the values on the chart. As a result, when closing the aperture, by shooting with the lens focused at the previous hyperfocal distance, all the elements at the horizon will remain in focus. You want to capture as many stars as possible so you set a short focal length for example, 14mm to capture as much sky as possible.

Show pages 6 Pages You may have wondered "How do pros make those wonderful landscapes where everything seems to be in focus? They maximize DOF depth of field , the region of acceptable sharpness, by focusing at the hyperfocal distance. A simple function of lens focal length, aperture and the diameter of the Circle of Confusion. The wider the angle of a lens, the shorter its focal length and deeper depth of field. So, as an example, an 18mm lens will have deeper longer depth of field than a mm.

Also, the smaller the aperture you use the bigger the depth of field; i. You may want to check our articles on the subject of DOF. Focusing at the hyperfocal distance will make an image with DOF from half of that distance to infinity The Circle of Confusion CoC has nothing to do with other camera brand users.

Anything larger is seen as a small circle, not a point and is therefore perceived as out of focus. For 35mm film and FX format the diameter of such circle is 0. Often rounded to 0. The calculator in the next page allows for you to use any CoC of your choice, via a drop down menu.

The one on top was made focusing at infinity, the image below was produced with the lens focused at its Hyperfocal Distance. Hyperfocus set at infinity Focus set at the Hyperfocal Distance H.

Take notice of the sharpness of the bush on the right hand side of the frame and the expanded DOF all the way to the horizon when using Hyperfocal Distance. Printable hyperfocal tables Please forgive me the decimal fractions in the table below for 35mm film and Nikon FX format. It is hard enough to approximately set any distance on a lens.

As long as it is close, it will look good.

You are out photographing a landscape. You have a nice foreground and background in the frame, and you want as much as possible in focus. You set a small aperture to get a nice wide depth of field. But still, you know that not everything in your frame will be sharp. The fact is that lenses just cannot keep everything — from what is right in front of you all the way to the horizon — acceptably sharp at the same time.
