Good hyperfocal distance tip:

although i rarely have to get it out of my bag anymore, the chart over time gave me a focusing process that never fails: find the close object (CO), estimate or pace the distance to the CO, double it, focus there, then take that distance (CO x 2) and check or remember appropriate f/stop from hyperfocal chart (at CO x 2) and set camera. if in doubt underestimate distance and this will move you toward a smaller aperture and you’ll be bracketed safely.
