    I was looking for a site to compare modes, f-stops, ISO and settings. Stumbled upon this animated site that I think we might all learn from:

    Thank you vinman, the page you posted is brilliant, simple and visual (which is more helpful to me than numbers and fractions). I've read F.stops, S.S and ISO info 100 times but using that slider and getting instant results just make it far more understandable, so thanks.

    Thanks from me too, vinman. That is one of the best (and simplest) explanations I have ever seen for getting my head around manual shooting.

    Brilliant! This is how I learn. Thank you!

    @vinman, @coffeecream, @tommy, @bez27, @mypaintedpath - You guys should also check out the very nice Camera Sim (see here) created by Jon Arnold. It's a fantastic learning tool. Happy shooting!

    Excellent excellent tools! I bookmarked for future reminding reference.

    I needed this badly since I was getting lost in the manual.

Howdy, Stranger!
