Chris McGinnis bought his first Olympus OM-D camera in 2014 and was determined to learn its ins and outs. Chris joined Instagram and made a commitment to post one photo a day for a year. The experience helped him master his camera and discover something important: he loved the small natural wonders that go unseen.
Geraint Radford bought his first DSLR in 2010 and turned pro a year later. After five years and a switch to the Olympus OM-D system, he followed his heart and dedicated himself to macro photography. Today, he’s an Olympus Visionary and has been featured in BBC calendars, magazines and numerous online articles.

It adjusts for all types of camera movement and delivers up to 7.5 shutter speed stops of compensation to capture crisp, clear handheld shots even in low light. It’s an essential feature when using magnification to shoot small subjects.

BETTER MAGNIFICATION

Macro photography is all about making small things look bigger. Thanks to the Micro Four Thirds platform, Olympus cameras and lenses yield greater magnification than other camera systems. One-to-one with an Olympus gives you 2x magnification versus 1x with a full frame camera.
