You get a LOT of DOF, just as you did in this canal picture. when it's in focus, it's pretty much ALL in focus.
my little pocket camera does the same. IMHO, this is not a bad thing for what you are trying to achieve.
Makes sense. Trying to limit the depth of field for portrait type shots I find difficult with these cameras.
