Olympus E-M1X is a jack of all trades and master of many. Which is what one would expect from its relatively high (though, fair in a way) price. One of the many things this camera excels in is macro photography. This article is going to be a quick introduction of the camera and the OM-D ecosystem in the context of macro shooting. I've only owned this camera for three weeks, and I've still got a lot to learn about it, but I will try to be as thorough as possible. Anyway, let me tell you a few things about the Olympus OM-D E-M1X.
As far as dedicated macro glass goes, Laowa is quite an affordable all-manual lens for APS-C cameras from China. Whenever "China" and "affordable" appear in the same sentence, most people would think "not a very good piece of glass." I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it is anything but. Let me tell you all about it.
Raynox has made its name among macro photographers with their excellent DCR-150 and DCR-250 diopter lenses. While the diopter lenses are generally the easiest and most convenient way to convert a non-macro lens into a macro lens, their optical quality is typically not that great. Raynox is an exception. In this post, we'll take a look at both the DCR-150 and DCR-250 diopters, and see how they are used and what kind of results they yield.
