My best gift to you all who own V1/J1
Nov 3, 2012

We have been discussing depth of field and so and here is my best gift to you, which is related to dof.

On your V1 (or J1) set the camera to manual focus mode, click on OK dial to bring the MF assist scale, slowly bring the focus to touch the top of the bar, the infinity mark. Make sure it just touches the top of the bar and does not go further than that.

Set the F stop to 5.6 and shoot away without any care, all your images will be perfectly in focus from foreground to background even at telephoto end of your zoom lens, but mostly on normal to wide range.

If you're shooting at 10mm even at f2.8 everything will be in focus.

Try it and you'd be very surprised and happy.
