I'm wondering if it's possible to save different DOF settings, and switch between them easily. I want to do this so I can have different DOF settings based on where my camera is for taking screen shots of my level. Of course the DOF will be different for when I am taking close up screen shots, and for when I am taking large, scene shots.

I have the camera 'bookmarked' to locations with the Ctrl+# feature, but I am wondering how to swap out DOF settings quickly for each camera position.

Thanks in advance

Put different post process volumes around the camera locations and tweak the settings for them?

As Xendance said you can use different post process volumes to adjust the DOF.

You can also animate the DOF in matinee. That's how I did the pull focus shots in this video :

+1 to sprunghunt's suggestion, matinee is a great and easy way to accomplish this.
