PocketDOF goes version 1.2 for both Android and Windows Mobile

This version allows you when you quit and re-run the application to recover the parameters that were previously entered. Hence you find your previous tuning back and win in productivity.

As usual, an upgrade from PocketDOF version 1.0 or 1.1 is free.

Note to Android users: For reasons regarding the application signature, if you had a previous version installed on you handset, you may have to first un-install that application before installing the newer one. This occurs when you try to install the latest version but that the installation fails.

If that happens, first uninstall the installed version, then rerun the installation of the latest version of POcketDOF. In that case, you will have to re-enter the unlocking code of the application.

PocketDOF goes version 1.1 for both Android and Windows Mobile

This version includes the reverse DOF feature.

Contrary to the classical depth-of-field calculation, the reverse DOF feature allows you to calculate the focus distance and moreover the minimal aperture , given the lens focal and the near and far limit of sharpness.

Upgrading PocketDOF from version 1.0 to version 1.1 is free.

You can download PocketDOF here at my caketuzz website.

PocketDOF, an hyperfocal and depth-of-field calculator for windows mobile

PocketDOF is dedicated to photographers who want to calculate the hyperfocal distance as well as the depth of field according to your configuration (camera, lens) from your WM device.

So what's this for?
The hyperfocal distance is used mostly on the field and represents, given a configuration, the distance from which everything will be sharp. Once your lens is set to that distance, you don't have to touch it anymore and hence you will be ready to shoot instantly.
The depth of field, well it's the area of sharpness in front of your camera. It depends on the lens focal distance, f-stop and the distance to the subject too. For example, with a 50mm/1.8 mounted on Nikon D40X three meters far from your subject, the DOF is 25cm. Pretty useful to know especially when you don't have an autofocus enabled.

The application is currently available for windows mobile, either smartphones or pocketpc (with a .Net compact framework). It will very soon be available for android and Bada too. PocketDOF is worth 2€ and can be purchased via paypal.

You will find it at caketuzz.com, my news website for mobile software.

prochain iPhone Killer: le Samsung i900 Omnia

samsung-i900_m.jpgRécemment annoncé par Samsung, le i900 est probablement mon futur téléphone.
Pour avoir eu le téléphone entre less mains pendant deux semaines, je vous le confirme, c'est vraiment une bombe. Pas de revue cette fois-ci, je n'ai pas eu l'occasion de faire des screenshots, mais une très forte impression.

Car non content de ressembler au fameux iPhone, le i900 a le mérite de faire arriver Windows Mobile à ce que j'ai pu voir de mieux: Windows Mobile Pro (équivalent PocketPC par opposition aux smartphones), écran passant des modes portrait ou paysage en tournant l'appareil, suite Office Mobile, un nouveau navigateur Opéra (pas mini), une machine Java d'origine, une connectivité complète, une puce GPS et j'en oublie beaucoup beaucoup. Surtout, à l'instar du Tourniquet du i600, Samsung propose sa propre interface (écran Today) qui est vraiment très réussie. Celle-ci intègre du reste un moteur de widget ... façon iPhone donc :)

L'écran tactile est une merveille, le look et le toucher sont très bien finis. Les senseurs de position sont un peu durs (il faut parfois secouer un peu l'appareil, pour que la vue passe en payasage ou inversement, mais j'ai eu un modèle de pré-séries), mais c'est globalement une superbe machine à naviguer le web (mobile et classique !), gérer ses emails et consulter ses fichiers bureautiques.
Avec l'écran tactile, vous ne jouerez jamais plus au bubble breaker comme avant.

Enfin, voilà une petite démo en images vue chez J. Langridge.
