This application calculates the depth of field in a photo, visualizes it and simulates the background blur (bokeh) based on parameters like: lens focal length, aperture, sensor size and distance of the object and the background from the camera. Changes in parameters are immediately visible in the simulation. This allows to easily observe how they affect the final effect.
Activating the help mode allows to obtain additional description of the interface elements. By clicking on one of the buttons with question mark () you can read more detailed information about each panel of the interface.
All calculations are performed with assumption that the lens is a single, thin lens. Such approximation can cause slight differences from the actual values observed in reality.
The simulator makes use of modern web technologies, such as HTML5 and CSS3 and may not work correctly in older browsers. It has been tested to work with Chrome 20.0, Firefox 4.0, Opera 12.0, Safari 6.0, Internet Explorer 9 and newer.
