Canon or Nikon: lens-based decision

[quote name='Brightcolours' timestamp='1299408160' post='6548']

Bokeh is NOT the amount of blur. Nor the shape of highlights. Bokeh is the CHARACTER of the blur. Only that. The pleasantness. The aesthetic quality of the blur.

[/quote]



With respect, Puxvida has not defined bokeh as the amount of blur anywhere in the above post: he merely stated "to my knowlege [the amount of blur is dependent on aperture size]", which is correct. Aperture degree/shape also affects the shape of the highlights, which is a factor of the quality of the bokeh: ergo, it affects the bokeh.

You can also affect bokeh by using a star-shaped paper cutout.



It is linguistically incorrect for you to claim that bokeh is "the pleasantness" of the blur, since pleasantness is a subjective attribute - it would be a bit like claiming that the word 'taste' defines the pleasantness of a particular food.



Sorry to have to say this, BC, but I have the impression you often only post on this forum to belittle other people or to prove you are right. In my opinion that is rather antisocial.
