Depth of Field calculator

Hi,

I have found this handy online DOF calculator:

http://www.dofmaster.com/dofjs.html

I would like to use it with the EX1 but I am unsure of a couple of things:

'Camera, film format, or circle of confusion' - its about sensor size - what do i choose?

'Focal length' - do I choose 35mm equivalent or the actual focal length shown on the EX1.

thanks.

the built in one on the ex1 does a pretty good job if you need it

Put in the EX1 focal length, not the 35mm equivalent.
