# Depth of Field of an Ideal Lens

```function enddof (d, f, cf, a, c=0.00002)
```
```  Far limit of DOF

If the lens is sharp to infinity the result will be negative.

```
```function startdof (d, f, cf, a, c=0.00002)
```
```  Near limit of DOF

```
```function dof (d:real vector, f:real vector,
cf:real vector, a:real vector, c:real vector=0.00002,
infinity=NAN)
```
```  DOF interval

d : focussed distance
f : focal length of lense (relative to film)
cf : crop factor (f/cf then is the true focal length)
a : aperture (F stop)
c : acceptable blur radius (0.00002 is the industry standard)
infinity : Use for infinity

If the lens is sharp to infinity the result will be negative.

Returns a 1x2 vector containing the bounds of the interval. If one
of the inputs is a vector the result is a nx2 vector of interval
bounds.

```
```function hyperfocal (f, cf, a, c=0.00002)
```
```  Hyperfocal distance

f : focal length of lense (relative to film)
cf : crop factor (f/cf then is the true focal length)
a : aperture (F stop)

The lense will be acceptably sharp from the hyperfocal distance
divided by 2 to infinity.

```
```function coc (od, d, f, cf, a)
```
```  Circle of Confusion

od : object distance
d : focussed distance
f : focal length of lense (relative to film)
cf : crop factor (f/cf then is the true focal length)
a : aperture (F stop)
