Whenever I try to investigate DSLR's vs. Point and Shoots, I find very little information on depth of field. Isn't that a major difference between the two or do high-end point and shoots now offer more flexibility here? I want to take fairly close-up shots (but not necessarily always macro) and keep 3 dimensional objects entirely in focus. My Finepix F45fd only seems to focus on one plane and does not extend from there. Whenever I inquire at camera stores they always tell me I need a DSLR to accomplish what I want. However some of these shots will require macro.... Is it possible to achieve what I want with one camera? I will never be able to purchase a macro lens. Close-up filters seem to create photos of poor quality. Thanks.
