    don't think its achievable for PnS to get a nice background blur (if there is any bkgrd blur achieved at all)
    tt's y i suggest shooting at the most tele end + half body shots or head shots.
    ha ha! yep... i was trying really hard to get the shallow DOF effect with a PnS camera managed to get some, but in the "extreme" conditions as you noted. it is really difficult when you need to take full body shots. the PnS camera has such a small aperture that it is not a true f/2.8, just relative to the sensor size.

    Lol. And now I really know the reason why people actually don't mind spending the extra money to get a DSLR to get a waaaaay better pic.

    eh, it really does depend on what you shoot though

    for me, i did not really have interest in bokeh, or portraits, so i was pretty happy with my prosumer for a while, even with relative image quality.. until i realised that i needed something wider. sometimes there just isn't enough space to go back far enough to capture the whole scene..

    no doubt, dslr allow more space for freedom of expression/creativity.. but prosumer/consumer cam are not inferior too and can offer some advantages. i am actually thinking of getting a random consumer cam to take street shots, bokeh or not - it's just less conspicuous
