Can someone please explain Hyperfocal Distance as if I was a dummy or well I'm an idiot. But all the sites I see have llenses that look like they come from film cameras with aperture rings.
Please can you explain with the modern lenses with just hyperfocal distance scale. Basically at the moment I have a Nikon D60 (With 3 focus points) with a 17-55mm and I just set aperture and auto focus and shoot. Is the hyperfocal scale better to use and why? Don't forget I'm an idiot
