How do you soften the background with the z74o?

Great looking photos. Nice use of the low F-stop to get that Depth of Field!

By softening I assume you mean focus or depth of field. Use the manual setting on the z740 and use aperture control and use the lowest number you can. It usually goes down to about 3.2 which is a wide open aperture setting and decreases depth of field.


Thanks to all for the compliments.
