If you have a rangefinder camera the sharpness is ajustied by installation a corresponding value on the distances scale ring opposite to index of the sharpness depth scale. After this it's necessary to reach the required value of diaphragm rotation by turning of a diaphragm pre-installation ring.
If you photograph a number of subjects located on various distances from the camera those use a sharpness depth scale. This scale determines two values of distances within those subjects in a picture are represented sharply for each value of a diaphragm.
