as the examples posted show, not only do you need to be close, the background wants to be far away, not your typical shallow dof but better than P&S.

as noted, lens/sensor size is the determining factor, as well as f stops, etc.

if want compact,  fixed lens, you may want to look at Canon G1X, 1.5" sensor, slow focus but great IQ, much better shallow DOF.

other model suggestions?
