The dual lens system will also enable the popular bokeh effect for photos shot with Sony's camera, however, it will be made available sometime after launch in Q3 this year. The camera's low-light capability - as well as its artistic effects - are available for viewing with the live view-finder for an accurate representation of your subject.
