    Roger Evans mentioned that a DOF app is indispensable when using long lenses.

    Which one do you use?

    I use Simple DoF.  Its quite easy to use all you have to do is to select your camera from a drop down list and then enter your aperture, focal length and focus distance.  As an example if you enter f/2.8, 400 mm and 8 m the depth of field is 6.4 cm compared to 9.1 cm at f/4.0 (Canon 5D).  How often do I use it, once in a blue moon.  I think that if you know your limitations and that of your kit you can have more fun taking the images.

    Thanks Martin. Another recommended was f8 DoF, there is a charge for that one and, I’m not stingy, just don’t want to pay by phone.
