camera controls explained visually

I was just pointed to this web page - it does an excellent job of visibly showing the exposure relationship between shutter, aperture and ISO; and the perspective / depth of field relationship between distance, lens length and aperture.

Nice find JimJohnson. I'll certainly be messing around with that. I don't know the procedures for making things a 'sticky' but this may be rather helpful to novices like myself. Perhaps the powers that be might pass judgement.

That's brilliant! I'll show this to my wife, who is just learning the basic concepts of SLR photography.
