    Some picts of focusing off-centre and on-centre for comparison might make a better point.

    Generally P&S can take pretty good shallow DOF pictures but only at Macro level. once you get big objects, even with a f2.8 aperture, its quite hopeless unless its some very brightly conditions. I tried with my prosumer camera, never could get it to work well with objects bigger than a pail!
    my bad. it shld be narrow. with my current cam, need to get upclose and personal to get a good shallow DOF. would using a tele converter make any diff or shld i just get a proper dslr instead?

    zoom to the longest focal lenght
    use the biggest aperture you have
    position subject further away from the BG
    position subject closer to the camera
    so if i get the tele converter on my p5000, do u think that would work?

    sometimes, not possible to move the subject far or any closer to the cam leh.
