Depth-of-field (DOF) is more than a button on the front of a camera; it is a complex mathematical system that interweaves focal length, focusing distance, and aperture. Many modern SLR/DSLR lenses no longer have complete or accurate DOF markings. So to aid photographers, this ExpoImaging ExpoAperture² Depth-of-Field Guide gives shooters a full scale that can effectively be read with a single glance.

To use the guide, one needs to select the sensor/film size—anywhere from a 2x digital crop factor to 6x6 cm film—then a focal length ranging from 15mm to 135mm. The scale will compensate for the varying film/sensor sizes in relation to the selected aperture. When the parameters are chosen, the guide returns a range of apertures and the corresponding areas that will be rendered in focus for each f-stop.

The ExpoAperture² is compact, and easily finds its home in just about any camera bag or pocket. This ExpoAperture² includes a printed quick-start guide, a storage pouch and a sensor/film format reference chart.

This version of the ExpoAperture² is a two disc kit that includes a standard guide for 15-135mm lenses, and a second disc for telephoto focal lengths from 70-600mm.

"Highly recommended!...Works as Advertised...The LEE Filters System is GREAT but, I had some existing 4mm thick filters I wanted to use with it....For the custom-made holder, I stacked two 2mm rails together so that the top rail can act as the end plate but I can't practically use it as it caused vignetting to my frequent used wide angle lenses."

Blue Crane's "Introduction to the Nikon D90" and inBrief Guide - If you have just purchased your D90, the controls on the outside of the camera, coupled with all the menus and custom settings, can be downright overwhelming. Blue Crane gives you a structure for looking at the controls, as well as a repeatable ritual for taking great photos with your camera. You spent a bundle on this camera, let it be an extension of your hands rather than a struggle.

The Nikon D90 is a powerful piece of equipment. A solid understanding of its features and controls can really unleash its potential. Once you learn how the camera's components work together, you'll have all the tools you need to capture the best image under all conditions.

All you need to take great pictures is this training DVD and about two hours, and you'll have the knowledge and confidence to create the images you want. The topics are arranged in chapters, so you can move at your own pace, and return later to individual subjects.

This item also comes with an inBrief Guide. Your camera manual covers all the functions on your new digital camera, but it's also over one hundred pages long. When you are in the field, you need quick and accurate answers to achieve the best shot. Blue Crane developed the inBrief line of camera guides so you can get the answers quickly, and more importantly, the shot you want.

Each card is divided into eight color-coded panels. If you have a question about metering or bracketing, simply look at the yellow panel. Questions about custom functions are answered on the green panel. The layout and description for the control panel and view finder can be found on the blue panel. And a color-coded index on the front page immediately points you toward the answer you need.

The inBrief guide is laminated for long life and protection from the elements. As importantly, the panels are separated by thin strips of clear lamination, allowing the card to be folded easily and stored in your camera bag.

Your inBrief guide won't be a replacement for your manual, but it will remind you what functions are available, and how you can get them to work for you.

Every inBrief guide includes a line drawing of your camera with the controls for shooting, displaying images, and general operation clearly labeled. It also has a panel that shows you, at a glance, the camera functions available for each mode dial setting, as well as a cross reference to flash sync modes.

So quit fumbling with the controls, and take control of your camera and the images you want to capture. Blue Crane will give you the answers inBrief.

"Great guide...Good intro DVD...I bought manuals that were helpful, however not as helpful to my learning and mastery of this more complex camera as the Blue Crane DVD and Guide.Using the DVD Guide together with printed material clarifies many of my more technical learning needs.The Introduction to the Nikon D90 has allowed me to learn at my own pace-practice using the camera and review the chapters and specific camera functions as often as I need to remember what I have learned and feel confident using this camera....I didn't watch it all the way through, but section by section until I was comfortable with the information covered."

"Worked as expected....Perfect for adding another filter to the Lee Filter System...Although the construction material of the side guides is sturdy, these side guides scratch the sides of the filters after some use....I am not sure if adding this would cause vignetting on some wide angle lenses, but I had no problem using it on my medium and large format camera systems."
