This is opinion, not well-researched fact: I think there are huge differences amongst digital cameras, but precious few amongst film cameras. I easily get variations in DOF with my camera, but this may not be at all true for other digitals. There seems little in the way of standardization yet, and there may not be any for a while since the technology is still changing quickly. Again, this is me, possibly talking through my hat.

Rod:

Any other reference to this magazine article? I did a google *****h and only come up with Digital Photographer magazine. Would like to read about this.

Thanks,

Rod, if it were true that a digital f-stop of 2.0 is the equivalent of f/11 in a film camera, I shouldn't think I'd be able to get the incredibly shallow depth of field I do get with f/2.0 on my camera.

Default Digital Photography

Digital Photography, Issue 33 is a British magazine (www.paragon.co.uk) I purchased at Barnes and Nobel. The issue with digital DOF vs. 35 mm DOF, was briefly discussed. I suspect each camera is a little different and probably related to sensor size and lens with respect to DOF. As an example, an Olympus C-400Z at f/2.8 provides an ecceptable sharpness equivalent to f/14 for a 35 mm film camera.
