Re: DOF

All of these cameras pretty much have the same focal lengths and F-stops so, optically speaking, I don't see how there could be much difference in DOF between them.

Could it just be because Casio tends to always use a wide aperture in macro mode? Or maybe there's something funky about macro mode that invalidates f-stop/focal length calculations of DOF.

You can see from the frog example that the Casio does not have the
DOF of other cameras. I tested mine against several other ultra
compacts. In particular the Sony P200 had a much greater DOF. In
some shots this looked good, in others the increased DOF seemed to
take the appearance of depth out of the photo.
