  • acceptable focus and circle of confusion for 1/3 ccd hvx

    Quick question about figuring out acceptable focus for the hvx. First off, when figuring out the hyperfocal focus for 35mm the circle of confusion is .001 inch and for 16mm it's .0005 of an inch. Now would a 1/3 ccd camera be equivalent to 8mm circle of confusion and what would that be? Another question I have is once I find out what the circle of confusion for a 1/3 cam is, should I use the focal length of the HVX lense or should I use the 35mm equivalent which is the focal of the HVX multiplied by 7.74 and then use that number with the hyperfocal distance formula and then should I also use the 35 equivalent when calculating near limit and far limit depth of field of a subject? But then I'm wondering, would this also be limited to the sharpness of an HD image, would the acceptable focus range even be narrower because of this? Should I use a soft filter to compensate or maybe just calculate it by going a step down to a lower f-stop? :?
