CameraSim for Android Tablets is here!

Learn by doing: CameraSim shows you how to use your DLSR camera! (Please note: this is NOT a photo-taking's for learning how to use a DSLR camera.)

This is the enhanced version of my DSLR learning tool featured by Wired, USAToday, Engadget, Gizmodo, Lifehacker, PCWorld, and MacWorld that is rapidly approaching 1 million “stumbles” by the StumbleUpon community.

CameraSim visually explains the controls of a DLSR camera. Using a specially designed example image, CameraSim lets you experience the effects of various settings.


• Aperture/f-stop
• Shutter speed
• Lighting
• Focal length
• Parallax
• ‘Camera shake’ blur
• Tripod stabilization
• Subject motion blur
• Over- and under-exposure
• Exposure priority modes


• Experiment with wildly different settings and see how each affects the final “photo”
• Get instant feedback about your “photo:” see what you did right, or get advice on how your settings can be improved
• Observe the effects of preset example settings, or experiment with settings of your own


• Provides an interactive visual aid that demonstrates principles of photography to students

CameraSim is a fun and engaging way to demystify your DLSR camera!
