Which lens should i choose for bokeh while video streaming?

More blur == larger aperture, if other factors remain fixed.

From 85cm you’ll need a 35mm lens to get head & shoulders in shot, possibly a 50mm if you can drop the camera back a way.
You can get a f/1.8 for a reasonable price or a f/1.4 for a lot more. $£€100 1.8 to $£€ 500 for a 1.4.

The shorter your lens, the larger aperture you will need to blur the background.

Examples… (ignore the quality, these were lit by the computer screen & one room light & the ISO ramped up to max – not exactly ideal lighting)
Bear at 85cm, centre of flowers test print on wall another 165cm

50mm 1.4

35mm 1.8

This is on an APC-C with a 1.5 crop, the Canon is a 1.6 crop so your framing would be tighter.

Personally, I’d always go for the 50 & try to gain some distance rather than the 35 which can get a bit ‘pointy’ for me – big nose, little ears.

If you don’t want to hear the autofocus motor, don’t use the built-in mic.
Pulling focus to follow a talking head at 65cm on either a 35 or 50 is going to be pretty distracting. You will probably have to choose between razor-thin DoF & not making your audience dizzy by sacrificing some of your blur.

Late edit
Another idea, if you want to “outcool the other kidz” is a fake anamorphic lens (or a real one if you can afford it, but they’re expensive 😉
This is a 52mm lens (a Helios 44M) I got from a Russian lens mod company, for $55 USD. It has a ‘fake’ iris inside which gives the impression of an anamorphic effect on bokeh. It is totally manual, so no more follow-focus issues to worry about. Look at the light I put in the scene, which is a single LED point-light. It gives it a vertical oval shaped bokeh, characteristic of anamorphic lenses. It’s actually only an f/2, but it feels much wider because of the distortion in the out of focus areas. Crop to a more movie-style 16:9 or even tighter & there’s your fake cool lens effect…

views – Choose location on a map and add to webform submission details – drupal 8

We’d like to be able to allow a user to pin point a location on a map and then be able store that information with lat and long in a webform submission.

I’ve looked into the add on’s on webform drupal 8 but there doesn’t seem to be any direct integrations to allow this to happen.

Looked into the geofield module with leaflet integration and it does what we want within a content type and allows content managers to choose a location, however, we’d like to get this working for drupal 8 webform. Any leads would be helpful.

optimization – How do I choose the right model for production?

I am trying to build a classification algorithm having 28 classes. These classes consists of Logo of companies like adidas , Nike etc. I have very low dataset below than 100 images and greater than 70 images. I have trained CNN model but not got decent results. We all know that if error of the test data is high , then model is overfitted and if model performs poorly on test set it is also overfitted. If training loss decreases , and then starts increasing gradually model is also overfitted. There are any scenarios to identify the problem . Which identification should I choose in my case.enter image description here

dnd 5e – Can an Aspect of the Moon Warlock choose to sleep whenever they want?

You can sleep if you want.

“Does not need” is not the same thing as “cannot”. This is evident from the feature’s use of both phrases.

You cannot be forced to sleep. This clearly means that no external force can cause you to be put to sleep.

In contrast, you do not need sleep, but this does not restrict your ability to do so. It simply means that you do not suffer any negative complications from insomnia.

As a DM, I just let my players sleep when they want, unless there is some extenuating circumstance preventing it, such as being in a rainstorm without shelter.
