Hello,
I just bought a new pana z20, and I am taking some test shots.
I know that the digital non SLR have a huge depth of field, but I saw
some pics on internet using my camera with the background blurred.

So, I was wondering if you can give any advice and tip how to perform

1) MACRO or CLOSE UP
2) PORTRAITS

I know that I theory you should use a telelens and and big aperture
i.e. F8, but with these settings I found very difficult to focus when I
stand 1 or 2mt from the subject.

Can somebody can post me any example with the right settings of a pana
z10 or 20?

Any help?

Don't forget that your non-SLR digital usually has a small sensor area
compared to 35mm film. Not sure about the Z20, but for your average
consumer digital (A95, C760, etc) it means the aperture value is really
around 5 stops down from your equivalent 35mm setting.

For example, Z20 at f/4 will give you a similar depth of field as your
35mm SLR at about f/22 !! Assuming same subject distance and focal length.
