DEPTH OF FIELD (DOF)

Definition of Term

  • the distance between the nearest and farthest objects in a scene that appears acceptably sharp in an image.
  • The DOF is determined by three factors:
    • The APERTURE or F/Stop (how large or small the opening in the lens)
    • Camera-to-subject distance (how close the subject is to the lens)
    • Lens focal length (the amount zoomed)
