Depth of field is a critical component of camera lenses. It is heavily used in photography, film and computer graphics as a creative element, in typical examples ranging from portraiture to macro photography. Depth of field is governed by three factors: aperture, lens focal length and shooting distance. Many consumer class cameras, however, do not provide sufficient and independent control of these parameters. Digital cameras, in particular, usually show a wide depth of field – i.e. they are more tolerant to defocus effects. While this may be welcome in some instances (e.g. snapshot applications), it is often a serious deficiency in others (e.g. portraiture/macro photography).
