Super Bowl 2021 Fake Bokeh

From What to Watch:

Then there are the “Venice Cameras,” which you probably have already seen in action this year. CBS says they’re used to “capture a dramatic cinematic feel.” What they do is toss an unreasonable amount of bokeh into a live feed, blurring out the background with a really short depth of field. It’s artsy, and it’s something photographers and videographers love to use. And it still looks and feels really out of place in a live sporting event, and gives everything more of a video game sort of vibe.

And it looks fucking terrible.
