I have a Panasonic AGDVC7 and if you have one of these cameras you will know that it has a fixed lens.
I am trying to figure out how to get a tight shot of my subject and throw the background out of focus. Is there anyone with one of these cameras familiar with what I can do to trick this camera to make this work for me?

One idea is to take your camera and set it far away from your subject and then zoom in to the shot that you want. Remember to set the camera back a good ways though. I have used this idea before and it worked out ok. It's nothing like the range of depth of field on film but it will work.
Thanks
