Default Bokeh

Hi There - yes, it is confirmed ...... I am thick and I was just wondering if some one can explain bokeh to me as I have no idea of what this is. Thanks

Hah, Gary beat me to it. I didn't realize until very recently that the word is actually Japanese (and I speak Japanese!!). It means fuzzy, or out of focus, often used to describe an older person that is senile....I know that's mean

Nice one Saly haaaaaaaaaaaaaa !!! Yes I used the link and found out it was a Japanese word. I thought the individual letters made up some kind of acronym ........... so we can safely say that I am bokeh ...... senile too
