Douglas Software announces today the release of version 1.0.0 of Camera Module for Windows. 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.
Once you have got used to Camera module for Windows, calculating optical equations becomes refreshingly simply. 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 two metres and a resolution of five lines per mm at an aperture of f/8. Using the module, you specify the 35mm film format, select the resolution of five lines per mm. Then you should specify a focal length of 100mm, an aperture of f8 and the Manual option for Distance and enter two. 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 icks when selecting the calculation options.
