[Question] What is the [Miniaturize] in the Premium Shot mode ?

This mode captures an image that appear to be a picture of dioramas.
This mode will make out-of-focus the upper and lower parts of the image, which will give the impression that the scene is miniaturized and recreated like dioramas. You can change the range of the out-of-focus part before capturing.
