Bokeh - take photos in a professional style
Let the object in focus stand out. The Bokeh app simulates a shallow depth of field by creating a blurred out background.
It captures two photos with different focus settings, which you can bring together to create a photo with one object in sharp focus, against a beautifully blurred background.

How to use Bokeh:
1. Start the Camera and select Bokeh as the camera mode
2. Tap the object you want to focus on in the viewfinder
3. Press the camera key to take a photo
4. Change the blur level and blur effect with the controls on the screen
5. Tap the save button

Tips for best photos:

To get the best results, please focus on an object 15-45cm (0.5-1.5 feet) away, make sure the background object is 5 meters away from the focus target and hold the camera steady.
Results are dependent on device and camera specifications.

Notes : 

Due to Android restrictions 'Bokeh-addon' app icon may disappear from the camera mode selector after updating 'Bokeh' app to version-2.4.12 or later. Please update the phone software to make it appear. Alternatively, you can access the bokeh app from application tray (Home application).

Reviews From google play store

Very good when it works - with adjustable de-focus - but majority of tries it reports that "background can't be blurred". So only 2 *

The app is working on my Xperia phone and I suggest that there should be also an option for this be used also on front facing camera which is really great. Hope you'll have tons of other awesome camera effects in the future.

Fantastic effect, but it no longer appears in my Camera app. Cannot find any way to add it back in.

I can't find it in sony xperia XZ camera menu, where is it? In Noughat I can find it in camera menu but in Oreo it just disappear... But I can update Bokeh in Oreo, weird. Anyway love the application 💓

I'm expecting portrait mode in Sony but still they aren't providing

Update app for XZ2 & XZ3 line up with up to 12MP resolution and better edge detection. Thankyou

It's very bad for xperia xz premium also this app os not performing well

Joy to use but always rest camera on something because the slightest wobble can mess up things! Also, go easy on blurring as it really looks fake after 60%.

it's good when it works, too bad most of the time you just get the message "could not blur the background"... so many tries with dead steady camera and it's just not working...

this app is a waste , sony should learn something from google camera app, bcoz Gcam is a new app and they improve there app day by day but Sony just give update of this app but do nothing , i am a Sony User i love my device currently m using XZ2 but i am not happy just bcoz of this app bcoz they don't think about there valuable customers

awesome, but you should use tripod for best result. i just imagine if this app have grid menu, light and like the others menu as like as default smartphone sony camera app. thanks for the dev for this great app.

You can't take close up photo with this app, an error occurred if you tried "Can not blur the background", you always need to maintain the specific distance from the object. This app blurred the background of left side only, right side and an object which you have kept focus on, remains the normal. Very disappointing application from the reputed Sony Mobile Communications brand who has its identity in market for clarity only !!!

It needs to get a major upgrade. Please sony read the comments atleast once. Everyone here is just begging to get a proper portrait mode. Atleast on flagship devices try and update this app to capture professional portraits of humans. I own a xzp everything is flawless except the missing portrait mode feature. Also sony doesn't support camera2api so we cant use google camera mods which include portrait mode and hdr+. So we are helpless. Please listen to your loyal fanbase and get a proper portrait mode

Rubbish, you can't even have a heart beat if you want to use the app as any tiny movement will cause it not to work. It's not intelligent, the blur seeps into the subject and there is no way to rectify it with an after effect option where you could drag the blur where needed. Disappointing lazy app.

The state of this app is a reflection of SONYs ancient camera processing, algorithms and optics, seriously in need of an update and overhall (the new android 9 camera UI itself is nice, but the processing and low light needs work).. Sony, please show your Mobile phone supporters some love..

Thank You Sony, one of the major reasons, i wanted to change my xperia Z1 was that it was not having bokeh mode, but you did a fascinating job via a software app. This app lets you to blur the background and makes your single camera similar to that of iphones' dual snappers.

I am a 20 Xperia device by family and friends Xperia user for 9 years. Please can you improve this app by adding zoom, exposure, front camera selection and more MP count? Please let Xperia users enjoy more of it. I personally use now an XA2 ultra dual and the options above are a must. Thank you very much for understanding!

Need major improvement. Please add potrait mode on front camera. Even older version of Gcam are better on bokeh effect than this. Come on Sony, your loyal user are waiting. Great hardware but weak on software are useless.

Doesn't work . Fails to do its one job

Don't work. After taking a photo I always get the message "can't blur the photo". Using a sony phone too. Don't waste your work this app.

I am very surprise the phone came with such bad quality camera, apps and album management. This app is so kindergarten thing compared to other phone. My first sony phone will be the last one.

Great app . Doesnt work for all scenarios and can be a little harsh on the edges sometimes, most of the time it's very impressive!

Great phone, pity about all the unwanted apps that can't be uninstalled and take up storage and use downloads. So much for being a "smartphone"

This app is amazing imagine that Apple today announced a new iPhone that can alter the aperture after the photo has been taken hahaha mugging people off again. Sony needs to let this app do full 19mp or at least 12mp! Otherwise top app.

Have XZ PREMIUM already and still have problems shooting with this app. Only very close,very stable shots will blur!! But with poor isolation after all Love u SONY -_- HOPE U REINNOVATE IT

It is not supporting front cam on my XZP. Whenever iam chooaing thia mode tge camera is switchingvto rear cam. With tge limitation of 45cm for tge object to focus, it is useless IMO with rear cam shotz.

Waste of time on Sony Xperia ZX

please upgrade/improve this app. the blur effect is not clean at all. and please increase sa range of taking photos to have a more good looking photos

This not working not very well and have lost of work to do it's not capturing photos 2 shots at a time consuming more to take a shot and could not getting blurring image.

Please update the software and make the app better. It's sad because the xperia lineup has the best cameras in the market and the software is the worst. Please add a good bokeh function to your flagships like Samsung did on S8+

Always says cannot blur background..

Useless app. Most of the time it fails to blur the background.

Worst app .its not working properly on my xperia x .only 8mp provided out of 23 mp camera.its not working everytime,everytime show you couldnt blur . sony plz update xperia cam app

This bokeh app is sucks. Can't take a regular picture even. They have to develop it so much more.

App: *takes two different, random zooms of the shot" App: "Could not blur background"

It takes dual shot, its too longtime for users, if it works with single shots then we will more happy

can't able to use bokeh mode. Not able to focus background.

Need to improve it more sometimes background doesn't get blurred..

It is even worst then a budget smartphone phone bokeh... Plz make it polished... I am ashamed that i waste 800 bugs on a smartphone that didn't have quite well bokeh...

dear sony.. , please do something, xiaomi can do bokeh with single shot on single camera. i think Xperia can do better! use the tof sensor man! c'mon

Need can take picture with more than 20mp picture camera. Now i can only take up to 8mp picture. I'm using xperia z5 dual.

Most of the time returns an error cannot blur the background

The quality of the pictures taken with Bokeh app is disappointing.

why this thing can't blur the background and only use back camera only?

please give better update for this apps sony, this has potential for single camera phones but have to give major improvement in this. hope to get update soon

Such a shame.. Sony makes such bad apps!! The blur is not accurate whatsoever.. That's too bad..

I did'nt expected an app from sony to be this bad!!!sony needs to improve this app for their fans and customers who are waiting for this feature to work perfectly in their xperias...

Still have problem recognizing and separate object form backgrounds

You can't take photos with long distance.. This app only use for close up.. Please give update

It will be even better if selfie bokeh is supported. They should add selfie to it

It needs to doesn't work properly.

Terrible and Creepy, I don't know how Sony is one of the leading manufacturer in the cameras field and moreover they are manufacturing camera lens for other phones (e.g. one plus), yet they are not enhancing their camera experience. Sony are using the same processor that all the flagships (Snapdragon 835 for the XZ1) are using which is the same processor the Pixel 2 is using, but unfortunately we as users are not getting the best of it from our Sony devices

Crashes. Please fix. Having an xzp for nice feature apps such as this portrait mode

must using tripod & close capture. no update

always can not blur the background.... pffftttt.. disappointed sony users

My phone picture is not getting baground defocus?

Is no working,i have xperia z3+ and is not working it say cant blur the background

rubbish, not sure why I believed that Xperia has great camera. it sucks and this app is useless

Very useless app, Sony plz do something about portrait mode

แอ๊พนี้ หน้าชัดหลังมั่วครับ - This app is the worse. Not usable.

Pls. Copy the technology or the Idea on how they do it perfectly on Google pixel phones. Even they only have 1 camera, they nailed it! Pls. Don't Break my Reputation on sony phones, Or I will Change brands. BTW I'm using Xperia XZ

Always says cant blur background

Nice app but not dual camera blur effect so pls update next
