SX260HS, sometimes AF gives me shallow DOF sometimes it doesnt?
6 months ago

I shoot in manual, today doing some testing.

When I held up something white (for instance a white usb charger end) and put it far (like 1 foot) away from my background it was giving me reasonable out of focus background which is what i want. Obviously my aperture only goes to f3.5.

Sometimes placing different objects against the same background the whole background was coming in focus.

Any idea why this happens?
