thank you for your visit and kind words! "Great DOF" - often considered a disadvantage of compact cameras that they would not allow to isolate the object from a busy background. So I have decided to turn that disadvantage into an advantage by deliberately taking the background into the image with appoaching the object very closely at short focal length and small aperture settings, making me even happier to use a lightweight and versatile compact for documentation in the field. Would be very difficult if not impossible to achieve such a DOF with a full-frame SLR at reasonable shutter speed and ISO settings.
With best regards,
