Question about Canon Cameras
SOURCE: Canon Powershot S5IS Aperture
To get a narrow DOF with the 5S you have two choices: Shot from up close with macro mode or shot from far away with the zoom. Of course you also need to select a wide appearture (under 4).
At a normal 35-80mm equivalent, in most situations it is impossible to get a decently shallow DOF with this camera.

According to Canon, only some of the A series Powershots are compatible with this function. See...

The A580 is not one of them.

I also have the same problem and I took it to the canon service center. They told me that I have to replace the whole lens kit the problem was with the shutter not closing properly thus overexposing the pictures
