Okay after reading this entire thread I know it can be done!

I read this entire thread I thought okay after all of these people with way more experience say one thing or the other I just did what Jeff said originally and it worked in my house and the setup took all of 2 minutes. I used my XL1s set the app to 1.6, frame mode, shutter speed of 30. The subject was a regular size DVD movie type case roughly the size of someone’s head I shot it from about 8 1/2 feet away while the blue wheels (stroller) are about 9 feet away and it was pretty blurry while the case was in sharp focus.

Here is a link to a scene capture on my site

If you look closely on the top left corner of the DVD there is a fly chilling out didn't notice it tell I was about to post the picture ;-)

PD150/170/vx2100 vs. DVX100, which one can get a shallow DOF easier (means don't need to go 3 streets away to shoot the target!) and nicer?
