CameraSim is an online SLR simulator which allows you to edit variables like distance to subject, focal length, ISO, Aperture and shutter speed and see in real time how they affect your end result. It’s quite ingenious and interesting to play around. It would be a great tool to showcase how all these items come together and affect your pictures. Via John Nack
