Re: DOF- why do I only get a key-press preview?

But this is what makes no sense- most of these explanations are technical reasons for why it's not possible or desirable. BUT, in Scn mode on the camera, it literally does it. You go to a setting called "Background Blur" and adjust it, and you hear the lens changing aperture and the display shows the resulting DOF- not temporarily, it just shows it. As mentioned in my original post, it probably is adjusting all the various exposure params to account for the change in light, as the final image it's showing has the same brightness. In other words, they give you this "user friendly" setting to adjust background blur. So the whole system is obviously completely capable of permanently displaying the DOF.
