View Full Version : Bokeh

Ok, I've been reading some articles on Bokeh and my brain has now gone cross eyed...

Starter for 10, how do you pronounce the word?! I've read conflicting articles...

Some say it is pronounced "Bow-Kay" while others say "Bockey"

Hmmm, it's definitely one of those words which people have different ideas on. I would go with Boh-ker, a la this video...

Thanks Paul :)

Now for the more difficult stuff... What is good and bad bokeh? Like I say above, I've read several articles and it all seems to be subjective, based only on what the writer thinks is good and bad bokeh.

Reason I ask is that I've been reading reviews of lenses and people have said that the lens has "good bokeh" or "bad bokeh". Should I let this be a part of the decision process when it comes to choosing new glass?
