I’m an amateur photographer and would like to ask for some help!
I’ve recently bought a new camera, a Panasonic Lumix TZ100. Before that for 5 years I was using a Canon Ixus 255 HS.
So far I haven’t strayed from using the Intelligent Auto mode. I like the high quality images, how well it performs in low light and also towards the sun (no lens flare). However, I have noticed that it does always tends to focus on something in the picture, usually the object closest to the foreground.
I would like to take pictures with no focus at all, so that everything in the shot is in equal focus regardless of distance. My previous camera, the Ixus 255 HS did this perfectly.
My question is, is there a specific mode I can use, using specific adjustments to achieve this, e.g. changing the ISO? I’m not very knowledgeable in this area so any guidance would be a great help.
To illustrate my point, I am attaching some pictures;
Here, my old camera Ixus 255 HS, which took shots with everything in crisp focus, regardless of distance:
Now compare to the TZ100, where the background becomes very soft and blurry:
