I have seen several posts about blurring the background of photos, but I want to know how this relates specifically to my camera. The P100 has the following specs:
Megapixels, image sensor size, type: 10 megapixels, 1/2.3-inch CMOS (backside illuminated)
Lens (zoom, aperture, focal length): 26x, f2.8-5 26-678mm (35mm equivalent)
If I want to take pictures 3 to 5 feet from the subject with blurred background, what would be the best settings and how far away would the background have to be?
