    Usually useful if you are using a wide angle lens and especially on a range-finder camera. In low lighting, sometimes it is difficult to get something in focus. Therefore just set everything and shoot, shoot, shoot.

    Most cameras nowadays have autofocus, therefore there may not be any need for using HFD.
