Borrowing from smartphones: computational bokeh.
8

Just read an article on computational bokeh now used more and more in smartphones on DxOmark. We can see how various brands come out with  various approaches and how DxO scores them (and how their scoring works).

It is quite a tourtheforce for a smartphone to come with anything since most of the phones haveeverything sharp (some are now coming with a variable aperature though).

It seems like mFTs could at least add such an algorythm to its JPGs and it also seems nothing  extraordinairy is needed to get a result that is 2 stops better.
Otoh: it seems the cam needs to "guess" what is out of focus and by how much.  Then again: DFD by Panny  is based on the difference between focus and out of focus areas (depth from defocus) given  the results they are very good at guessing what is in focus and what isn't.

Do you think Panny (and Oly) should give us setting in JPG or in  post (in cam) raw editting to apply shallow DOF filters? I think so provided they do a good job.
