    I thought to create a thread for sharing Bokeh Shots. They come out really nice.

    The blurring on the edges looks a bit poor IMO; it's blurring things it shouldn't be.

    Looks a bit poor on that shot. Seen better on a video on YouTube. Don't have a link. And don't forget, it's a beta.

    Have to agree. The blurring round the edges isn't much of a surprise but the one down the hair parting looks plain weird.

    Yes, there's a clear smudging artifact there.

    I'm very disappointed they're doing this with post processing blurring. It could have been done with stacking and merging multiple bursts from the two cameras. Not easily enough maybe, I admit.

    Wake me up when the Plus model has four cameras, and uses them to get stacked images with the depth of field of a dslr, with no blurring in post tricks.

    Isn't that what it's supposed to be doing? It takes a shot when it has 9 layers of depth.

    It's clearly a technology in progress, but it'd be great to see more pics taken by forum members on here.

    It is a beta and needs work - but in many cases does surprisingly well. They need to fine tune the algorithm to more aggressively blur some edges and less aggressively do so to others. It has a big problem with any kind of fine detail right behind a subject like lines in brick. In other cases it does a fine job. Definitely a beta.

    ...to confirm, you'd need to be on the latest iOS 10 Beta, to have the Bokeh feature, no?

    For a cell phone camera. I'm very impressed. Nice pics!

    Bokeh is define: "The way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light" - so what OP has is actually just a blurred background, or an example of depth of field.

    This is bokeh: https://pixabay.com/p-313994/?no_redirect

    Second, that blurred background looks forced, like someone took a flat image into Photoshop and did a cursory selection of everything except the girl and threw a gaussian blur on it. That's not real depth of field.

    This looks better (not sure why OP's looks so false). Still not bokeh, though.

    Weird you could do this with a 6 by just focusing on the nearest object.

    I guess the effect is more pronounced with the 7.

    With the 7+, they are building in a software algorithm. It's wonky.

    E.G. in the OP's post. Woman's hair goes blurry with the background, even though it is part of foreground. It's shittastic.

    So far, the feature seems to be pretty decent. Its going to be difficult for software to create what optics on lager cameras do with hardware. If you're shooting for money or profession you are going to use the bigger camera and fast lens. If you are doing this for an optional effect in your photos like you would with a filter this is a nice touch.

    So far it looks like you would get better results with just a bit of Photoshop skills.
    But this is much easier and faster. Most people will probably be happy with this.

    For me it's still just a gimmick

    Not a photo snob.
    Some may want to nit-pic how the camera is working or whatever.

    I'm not, all of those pics are pretty damn nice!
    The iPad/Watch pic above, I could see that being an Apple marketing photo.

    Which makes me think i'll be seeing the "Shot on 7 Plus with Bokeh effect" marketing campaign on the back of magazines now.
