    hiragana>> simple pointing-and-shooting will not achieve that function if the doll in the foreground is sufficiently far away from the camera.

    if you can't achieve that in camera, you can do so in photoshop, if it's weird, perhaps ur percentage of the blur tool strength is too much?
    try to lower it to 50% or lower, hope that helps ^^

    PnS camera has relatively small imaging recording sensor. hence, deep depth of field. DSLR has a much larger imaging recording sensor. it give shallower depth of field which gives u a nice defocusing effect.

    hiragana: graduation of lens blur/ gaussian blur cannot achieve as well? I did use blur tool on some of my photos to blur away the unwanted areas that i don't want to focus on. I've seen some nicely manipulated photos with that effect too.
    Not to doubt you but i would like to know more too? ^^

    in a photo, there can be many different type/brightness of lighting. these can affect the defocusing effect.

    different ppl got different opinion of the certain effect. some can say bad some can say good. in PS, u can achieve nice effect of blurness but not as natural as taken with lenses

    show u 1 example





    notice the particularly circular patterns at some of the lightings

    most of us can't afford/don't have SLRs.

    that's why simple point-and-shoot would be a hit-or miss.

    hiragana: i see ^^ but then again not everyone can afford a DSLR, that kind of effect of blurring is nice. meanwhile while most of us are using normal digital camera (not even the pro-consumer one), using photoshop to enhance our photos deem as the most cost effective way. Though many times i do wish to own at least a dlsr, probably a canon 20D will be good enough..., are you using nikon? i would love to know what's the most distinctive difference of photos taken with canon and nikon dslr. I do know how lens and dlsr works since i took photography lesson in sch before and handle them before.

    you can actually try shooting at end tele zoom maybe with macro mode. tele zoom can achieve pretty decent defocusing effect

    these 2 photos above taken with Sony a100, together with a more than 20 yr old lens
    lenses made the difference, not a camera body. different type/brand of lenses produce different quality of pictures
