Live Focus

Bokeh effect comes into play

Help get the focus you want before you press the shutter button. Live focus lets you take beautiful bokeh shots where you make your subject stand out. And if you're not entirely satisfied, you always have the option to adjust the level of background blur afterwards.

 * Bokeh is the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens.

Please Note: Bokeh filters can only be applied when there is sufficient light in the background. If there is not enough light in the background of the image, the bokeh filter option will be unavailable.
