    Bit of both, i've come from a Canon Powershot S45 so Super-Shallow DOF is new to me but i've got a fair idea of how to control it. :)

    Wide depth of field (lots in focus) = small aperture/large f-number
    Narrow depth of field (not much in focus) = large aperture/small f-number.

    I think you already know this, but it'll help explain to some newbies looking through here why your photos here have such a narrow depth of field.
