What's your favorite DOF calculator on your smartphone ?

The days when we carry tables of DOF numbers are way over. Now we have smartphones instead Quite nifty for those without a good memory for numbers - like me - or simply don't want to learn boring tables of numbers by heart.

Best of all, the apps are free !

So which one do you use, why do you like it or what do you dislike about it?

I'll start:

This one is very handy:


What's nifty:

  • Ability to set 3 different "cameras" each one with its own sensor size and COC diameters. Very convenient if you switch between different COC's (it's useful even if you have one camera !) or have cameras with different sensor size.
  • You can quickly scroll through the tables sorted by 2 fixed parameters (typical example is distance to subject and focal length fixed and you want to see in one quick check how different apertures affect the DOF).

What's not so hot:

  • It is not available for iphone's
  • The interface feels a bit cluttered, although this is unavoidable
