CameraSim for iPhone

By Tuitive

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


For iPhone 4 and newer: Learn by doing! CameraSim shows you how to use your DLSR 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
• A fun and engaging way to demystify your DLSR camera!

Please note that CameraSim for iPhone is in ENGLISH ONLY. (Other translations can be found in the iPad and Mac versions.)

Needs more content

It was cool for about 5 minutes. That's how long it took me to find out that if I use the exact same camera settings on EVERY shot I get a "good shot" but if I change them on any example it is off. They need to add a bunch more examples under a wide variety of lighting and motion situations and then it be awesome. Right now there are a bunch of examples of the EXACT same situation-- a little girl with a pinwheel swaying under overcast skies. The same settings work best for every example so it gets boring and useless fast.

Pretty good

It's a pretty good little app but I can't use it right now because there is no way to turn off the sound of the shutter clicking. The only time I can sit down and play with this app is when my baby is asleep and it wakes her up everytime. Which makes it basically unusable for me 😕 please make this more user friendly? It's a great tool just needs more options.

Read the description carefully ...

... this is what happens when you don't do it. The idea is that you practice controls on an app given picture. This is not a simulator on real pictures you are taking. I shoot film, so I needed a real controller app, to later take the picture. Not worth the money, for me.
