    Bokeh is a naturally occurring artefact that comes from out of focus light hitting the lens. The only way to get rid of it is to either re-frame your footage to avoid the light source or put your subject in the same focal plane (parallel distance from camera).

    Portrait mode on the other hand, tries to simulate this.

    I haven't seen any photos that have a bokeh effect, only blur. Examples shot with iPhone 8 please? (prefer not 8+)

    I find that it kinda over blurs the background.

    Bokeh are circular, I think it's more than just the blur.

    Sorta kinda, it really depends on the aperture of the lens.

    Some aperture blades produce a nice bokeh more similar to the digital blur effect you see in portrait mode. My Canon 70-200L 4.0 gives nice creamy bokeh.

    At the same Av a cheapo 50mm lens makes it look harsh. YMMV.

    It's really subjective.

    Not always.

    Apple is kinda faking the bokeh. It would not look good naturally with the tiny lenses.

    To me desirable bokeh is creamy and smooth. Bad bokeh is harsh and really detracts from the image.

    One thing to remember about bokeh is the background(the thing getting bokeyed) plays a big part. A simple background like a field of wheat, will dissolve into nice swirls. Whereas a background of bare tree limbs and branches will turn into a brown mess.

    Photos with perceived "good" bokeh are also composed well enough that they might look good even shot at f16.
    i.e. no matter how good your lens is, its hard to disguise a tree branch that appears to stick out of someones head with bokeh.

    There is no bokeh effect when filming though...?

    You only get the bokeh effect when taking a picture in portrait mode, which the iPhone 8 doesn't even have.

    As far as I know bowqué is removable from most media thanks to the embedded hybrid log-gamma and perceptual quantizer data

    iPhone 8 should be no different
