Can you tell me what would be the best point and shoot camera for getting good portraits with blurred backgrounds? I don't want a dslr and want to stay under $200 . I am willing to buy older/used to do that. I favor canon but am open to other brands. I've done pretty much studying into this but cant make up my mind :( Thank you
