Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F505V Digital Camera
This may strike some as strange, and it is probably because I don't really know what I'm doing yet. When I shoot a macro shot with my 505V using manual focus and a low aperture, the background is (as expected) very unfocused. (I am not using priority mode.) Not a problem as that was intended, but quite often the background has a strange "criss/cross" or "lattice" texture to it that I cannot explain. Has anyone else experienced this unwanted effect? I could not find mention of it in the forum.

You may sometimes see this. It is normal, when it does occur. I believe this has something to do with the fact that the F505V relies upon a diamond-shaped shutter/aperture design rather than having more leaves. This leads to other interesting effects with diamond-shaped lens flares, etc. Not ideal, but nothing to worry about, really. It won't detract from the beauty and sharpness of your images.
