  1. I'd like to gauge views on shallow depth of field using a compact camera but before anyone launches into a treatise on the subject, I'm already aware of the countless comments on other sites about the limits of a small sensor. My question relates to using optical zoom.

    Does anyone have a view as to the optimum zoom to achieve a shallow depth of field on a compact? Mine only has a five times optical zoom and while it has a much greater digital zoom, I'm loath to use it.
