On sensors and lenses - reducing the confusion
Barnack is a program that provides an interactive platform for learning about the intrinsic camera parameters and their effect on the depth of field, the hyperfocal distance, field of view, et cetera.
Oscar Barnack (1879-1936) designed the first camera using the 24x36 mm format for German microscope manufacturer Leitz in 1913. Its name was UR-Leica and it is now known as "the precursor to all 35mm cameras".
