FOV (field of view)

You can change this setting from; Steam\SteamApps\common\Sniper Ghost Warrior 3\GameSDK\game.cfg

The default setting can lead to motion sickness and if that is what you are experiencing then make the following change:

cl_sensitivity = xx (For Mouse)

cl_sensitivitycontroller = xx (For Controller)

This setting will disable blurring of distant landscape as well as the radial blur when using iron sights.

Film grain

Ambient occlusion / Screenspace space directional occlusion
