Fractions of a foot instead of inches
The inability of this app to translate DOF into inches rather than fractions of a foot made me uninstall it right away and revert to PhotoCalc. Too bad, I would have really liked to give a better review to this app that tries to offer a simple tool in an elegant graphical fashion but fails due to complete laziness on the part of the developer. When I'm trying to calculate DOF, I need a quick set of measurements, down to smallest increments, rather than being left with mental gymnastics.

MATH IS CORRECT, if you understand.
At first glance i thought the math of this calculator was off. Why was it giving smaller DOF measurements for cameras with smaller sensors? It should be the opposite. But then i realized the difference between focal length and angle of view. If you take two cameras with the same 50mm lens, one camera w/ a full frame 35mm sensor and the other with a 1.5x crop sensor, the DOF of the 1.5x crop camera will actually be slightly smaller. The reason is that even though the camera has a smaller sensor (and therefore greater DOF) that lens is now behaving like a 75mm lens. So it is providing the angle of view and the DOF of a 75mm lens on a full frame body. If you want to compare the same angle of view between the two cameras then you need to compensate for the crop factor. In other words a full frame body w/ a 75mm lens will have shallower DOF then a 1.5x crop body w/ a 50mm lens and both cameras will have the same angle of view.

Good app but...
it would be nice to have the option to display the DOF in inches rather than fractions of a foot once it is under 6 inches or so. I just have a hard time getting my head around .05 feet. Of course this is a very shallow DOF, but the whole point of using an app like this is to be able to calculate just how shallow.

Easy to use!!!
Great little tool. Much easier to use than other apps that use a slider or text entry. Well worth a few bucks!

Best DoF Calculator that I've found
I like how quick you can make adjustments to awe the results. I only wish the answers were in feet & inches (not just feet with a decimal).

Very well thought out app
This is a very easy to use app that makes calculating depth of field quick. My only suggestion to improve the program is that it would be nice if the depth of field could be set to display inches or feet. Worth the money!!!
