Hi Stitch ...... as you know .... adjusting the "amount" of depth of field is usually done by adjusting the aperture.

To adjust the aperture to a particular setting, switch the camera to EXT Mode and use the menu buttonto change the AE mode to APER PRTY (Aperture Priority). You will find this menu setting on the second page, it' thethe "Camera M" symbol (SETTINGS is the caption).

Use the left and right buttons on the joy-pad to change the aperture to the setting you desire. The shutter speed will automatically adjust itself according to the metered conditions. Once you use this mode ...I bet you will always use it!

Naturally, you can set a desired shutter speed in a similar manner. Use the menu button to set the AE mode to SHTR PRTY (Shutter Priority).

Cheers, KK

Just remember if you use the zoom at tele end then the depth of field is far less than used at the wide end

Hi Stitch .... didn't realise that it was a close-up shot you wanted ...... the depth of field is bound to be quite small for these types of shots ...... just go for the smallest aperture you can .... by providing lots of light, and follow the suggestions I made earlier.

Yum! The photo makes the siew mai look good enough to eat straight off the screen .... but do I detect a green cast from fluorescent lights or similar?

Cheers, KK

Tony ... I bet you are a Steak, chips and peas man! If you were brought (dragged) up in Liverpool, you'd be spoiled for choice too for Chinese food! We got some cracking Chinese restaurants in our historic China town!

Cheers, KK
