I considered doing this with a fish-eye, it triggered even when nothing was there when set to 30cm and the sky should have been out of focus... not an easy task

Hi Mike,

Did you look at "The Flying Finger Test" ?

I essentially did the same thing to make sure my setup was working, but after leaving it for a few minutes and coming back with a card nearly full of nothing i realized the DOF despite things being out of focus was just too much to be reliable, it just triggered too many times... that was with the Rokinon 8mm F3.5
