Good morning- this is a thought I had this morning on the way in to work. With the 70D's dual pixel design, would it be possible to "digitally enhance" the bokeh of images? Could you load bokeh profiles since the camera knows what is in focus and what is not? Someone- Magic Lantern (when available), Canon, or even Adobe Lightroom could create bokeh profiles for the parts of the image that are not "in focus" based on what the sensor is reporting/sharpness.
Or does something like this already exist? This way, you could get F1.4 bokeh on almost any lens at any F stop.
That's not quite possible as bokeh is formed with the correlation of sensor size, aperture, and distance to subject. Now, you can digitally add a similar affect via photoshop, but there's no firmware that can match PS's capabilities straight from camera. Though time it would take to do so would not be cost productive, plus there are other added benefits with using a wide aperture lens, namely the ability to shoot in low light.
