Douglas Photo Calculator provides a versatile, easy-to-use solution for amateur and professional photographers alike. It allows for a choice of camera formats from digital (including digital backs) to conventional film cameras as well as Super 16mm with the database regularly updated. Douglas Photo Calculator automates the calculation of key metrics for photographers in pursuit of consistent and creative results and takes the uncertainty out of high quality photography. This innovative software provides the capability to make crucial optical calculations quickly and easily. We're talking here about calculating, amongst other things, depth of field, hyperfocal distance, angle of view, image area and diffraction. Depth of Field – Making sure that the nearest and furthest parts of your subject are in acceptable focus is vital. Douglas Photo Calculator enables you to control a variety of criteria – including the often-misunderstood 'circle of confusion'! Hyperfocal Distance – With a just a few clicks, Douglas Photo Calculator will work out the distance from your camera lens to the nearest part of the subject that provides an optimal level of focus. Angle of View – The focal length of a lens will determine its angle of view in conjunction with a given film format size. Douglas Photo Calculator will calculate the optical equations for ANY LENS with an 'angle of view' between 1 and 179 degrees. Diffraction – Effectively limits the lens to be stopped down below a certain point. This software will work out the smallest aperture that can be used to avoid distortion. A comprehensive Help file is included with Douglas Photo Calculator and there are numerous examples to show users how to make the very best of this versatile and feature rich software.
I have been starting out with photography and I just bought a manual mode camera. The man at the store recommended this app so I decided to try it. It really makes all the confusing calculations involved with manual mode easy, the app does the work... I take great pictures! Overall, very good app.
Until recently, I kinda knew how to use manual on my camera but didn't really have a good understanding. All the different numbers were hard to combine and I had trouble making sense of it all. I found this app and i am sooo happy I did. It really helps me take full advantage of the awesome camera I bought. The app has given me some great photos in situations where I was happing trouble. It is well designed and it is one of my favorite apps.
