Simple DoF Calculator allows photographers to calculate the depth of field and hyperfocal distance for any given settings. It calculates the near limit, far limit, total depth of field, hyperfocal distance, distance in front of the subject and distance behind the subject.
Just choose your camera, aperture, focal length and focus distance and it shows you the depth of field, calculations are all done in real time.
Aperture range: f/0.95 - f/64, focal length range: 3 mm - 1200 mm, focus distance range: 1 in. - 999 ft.

Ratings and Reviews
Very well done, minor usability quibbles
As a long-time user of DOFMaster on the Palm and recent switch to iPhone, I downloaded Simple DoF Calculator based on the high reviews. Simple DoF Calculator makes data entry fast and simple because all data entry is done on one 3-slider wheel. DOF calculations are identical between the two (as they should be). Couldn't imagine a simpler and more straightforward way to design this app. It does exactly what it should and is attractive and very easy to use.
Two minor quibbles:
1) The focus (distance) and focal length (lens) choices should run in consistent geometric progressions just like real cameras. It's odd to see choices of 90, 95, 100, then 101, 102, 103, ... for focal length, and a 1 mm precision at 100 mm is not really useful and makes it harder to find the right setting. Instead, have every choice be, for example, 5% or 20% bigger than the last one depending on whether fast spin mode is selected. Similar for f/stop.
2) Even though it is likely rarely needed (maybe never), it would be nice to have the focus setting go beyond 100 feet.
Tried a number of DoF calculators. Most suffer from inconvenient method to enter data: focal length, distance, f/stop; you have to erase current value, then use the keyboard to enter new values. So slow in practice. Many offer long lists of camera models to choose from; kinda nice but the DoF calulation mostly related to sensor size, not camera model. Likely you only need to do this once, though. Many cameras models use the same or equivilent sensor.
And lastly, the DoF formula is based on a specific value for the circle of confusion (CoC). (In fact when you pick a camera from the list, you are really selecting the CoC that will be used in the DoF calulation.) Many photographers prefer to choose a value that is somewhat smaller than commonly specified; this has the effect of suggesting a smaller f/stop and larger DoF.
Here's where this app shines: it uses scroll wheels to enter data. This makes it incredibly easy to fine tune the DoF values when making compositional changes to focal length using a zoom lens. And in addition to the common list of camera models, you can simply select the CoC you want to use. It also support two camera model (or CoC settings) if you have cameras with different sensors.
Whether you decide to use a Camera Model or select a CoC, this app is fast to use and easy to read DoF values. The fact that it's free is amazing!
Excellent program with no in-app purchases
Easy to use and does what it is supposed to do. Even offers no cost updates for new cameras. No attempt to sell me anything else. Nice.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
