Just to make sure I am reading and using this correctly, for example, the line that reads:
"6.0 ft at f/8 (3.0 ft ... infinity);"

means that with the aperture set at f8 and the focus barrel marker set at 6 ft, everything will be in focus from 3 feet to infinity. Correct?

Correct. This is how hyperfocal distances work.

Just dropped £220 on one of these today! Love the results I've seen.

What aperture/distance combination would you recommend to keep a crowd all in focus?

I'll be taking it in the nightclub with me tonight, but not quite sure what the best settings would be for crowd shots and close-up artistic portraits!

Thanks, pulsar. I tried the technique today and the shots look good, focus-wise. :)

My first attempt at an "artistic panorama" (a full sphere panorama, 360/180 degrees). Made with my DIY zero-parallax tripod head (moves both in horizontal and vertical directions). Stitched with Hugin - apparently without any stitching errors. (Thanks to the zero-parallax head!) I also learned to make nice full-sphere VR panoramas from such shots with Pano2VR - looks great. I will probably post a mini-tutorial here on making panorama shots with Samyang, Canon crop camera, and Hugin software.

This is a three shot pano from Death Valley. Shot with the Roki and stitched in PS. It shows a roughly 270 degree field of view.

No problem. Let me see if I ever uploaded them individually to my hosting site. If not, I will.

Here you go. Corrected for light in RAW. Original pano was stitched from the full sized images. These are obviously reduced for posting.
