You might be a photo geek if you have painted your walls 18% grey.

Or added focus targets

Or see pattern noise when you close your eyes.  ;)

Or try to analyze the bokeh of your own vision... ???
Since the past 2 years I have great bokeh in my vision ... all I need to do is remove my reading glasses  ;D ... for deep dof I have to wear +2.00 reading glasses and it is only getting worse every year ;D

If I rub my eyes, REALLY HARD, I see some cool color patterns!  ;D
If I don't then the noise is pretty random and organic and confined to luminance channel only.
Since these sensors are always stuck on live-view I don't have the software to boost in real-time to check for possible underlying patterns.  It's OK tho, because in normal earthly lighting conditions they have exceptional dynamic range, resolution and the ability to identify the faintest of adjacent shade/tonal differences, probably exceeding 16 bit/color.  ;)

And with that I'm gonna go away and let that post-count sit for a little while.

...or if you carry and use pupil-dilating eyedrops to achieve a lower f-number and increased OOF blur.

Having had this done twice recently, it's unpleasant. You can't read for a couple of hours afterwards, and things are too bright, not surprisingly. It's not worth it, folks; don't bother!

Try increasing your shutter speed (ie, blink faster) :o
