This one doesn't work quite as well ... that blurry one kinda messes it up.

I agree on this. You could have focused on one that is on the foreground ;-)

Yes ... sort of a "hyperfocal distance focus". They don't print those on lens barrels any more, do they?

Speaking of what used to be, I just recently ran across this article on Ken Rockwell's site:
www.kenrockwell.com/tech/free-digital-camera.htm
No, it's not about getting a free camera; most of us already have the thing he's talking about, i.e., a film camera, and probably one of pretty good quality. He's talking about how to make digital photos with it ... cheaply, like almost free. I like the idea ... read the article, you might get inspired.

I think I should do that some day =) Put my old gear into use. I guess the resolution of scanned images they provide at labs is much better than it was 10-15 years ago. This would be a nice way to utilize also my old 16mm fisheye lens attached to my old fabulous Olympus SLR bodies (OM-4Ti and OM-1n).

EDIT: BTW, I did that thing quite often before I started to shoot with digital cameras. I ordered pictures scanned on CD.

dW: "a "hyperfocal distance focus". They don't print those on lens barrels any more, do they?"

I forgot to reply on this. First of all, this is not working for zoom lenses, and on prime lenses they probably stopped doing this when aperture control got totally moved inside the camera. Moreover, one can nowadays see the DOF much more easily on camera display than it was possible on view finder. Although, I remember myself pressing the "aperture preview button" quite often with my old Zuiko lenses. The latest innovation I have seen on one DLSR camera is that the DOF is clearly indicated with blinking colors on camera display. That I find a very useful feature!

LATER ADDENDUM:
I just found this extremely interesting article/video about a similar theme. I think it's one of these sites where someone has an idea and is trying to stir up some funding for it.

I've seen those on dP Review. I think the price of it is over $300. The only advantage of using it in an old dslr is the advantage you get using older prime lenses.

Which is not to be sneezed at ... the prime lenses were usually superb, and fast, too. Back in the day, before they had pooters to do all the skull sweat, it was the zoom lenses that left a lot to be desired.
