Calculate Your Camera Performance and Limits

Douglas Software understood that there are allot of geeks out there who would like to calculate the exact value of some photographic parameters (useful for camera comparison and understanding the photo technology). Therefore, they released Camera Module for Windows. This software calculates various optical equations such as depth of field or hyperfocal distance to let photographers make more effective use of photographic equipment.

This software provides a photographer with instant assistance in solving many day-to-day optical equations such as angle of view for selected lens and film format combination, depth of field, including near focus, far focus, total depth of field and hyperfocal distance as well as image width and height. The Camera module covers 37 digital formats including 9 digital backs and 12 conventional film formats. With Camera module for Windows, both amateur photographers and professionals will be able to make a more effective use of their photographic equipment while leaving the complexity of optical calculations and formula in the background.

Let us say, for example, you want to know what the depth of the field is with a 35mm camera with a 100mm lens at a distance of 2 metres and a resolution of 5 lines per mm at an aperture of f8. Using the module, you specify the 35mm film format, select the resolution of 5 lines per mm. Then you should specify a focal length of 100mm, an aperture of f8 and the Manual option for Distance and enter 2. The programme will immediately respond with a calculated figure. The best thing in this software is that all your efforts are restricted to a few simple clicks when selecting the calculation options.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
