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.
- New: expanded camera/lens preset database (note: entering custom always possible)
- Fixed: manually entered distance values was not compensated for non-zero nodal point separation
- Fixed: corrected a few nodal point separation values in the preset database
Ratings and Reviews
Very useful app but after having spent a lot of time putting in the various cameras I own from linhof to 2 different leicas when I come to open it again I have lost all the settings. Am I doing something wrong or should I get a refund. If it doesn’t save there’s not much point.
Great DoF and tilt app
Best DoF app out there, and the tilt function is an added bonus. All in all highly recommended.
