    I'm reading on hyperfocal distance and DOF, and I have one big issue. I have a very hard time estimating distance. I'm playing around with this DOF calculator and say if hyperfocal distance, I wouldnt know how far is 32 feet from where I'm standing to whatever is out there. Any tips other than getting a very long ruler :o
