Depth of Field Simulator

Stereographic version              Home
Drag the wireframe model on the left to inspect the effects from various angles. Green portions of the wireframe lie within the depth of field; the portions that are yellow, red, and eventually gray, are increasingly out of focus. Move the sliders on the right to change the camera controls. (Requires Java: get it here.)
alt="Your browser understands the <APPLET> tag but isn't running the applet, for some reason." Your browser is completely ignoring the <APPLET> tag!

This applet demonstrates the relationships between the fundamental camera controls and the effects they have on the resulting picture. Aperture, lens focal length, distance to subject, and film format interact to create a field of view, magnification, and depth of field.

There is also a stereographic version, if you like that sort of thing.
