Olympus TG4

My new toy is an Olympus TG4 camera…..

 

Brilliant….. its very small, smaller than a mobile phone though a little bit fatter but not much. And it takes photos underwater, down as far as I will ever venture with my snorkel and flippers. It also takes close ups and focus stacks half a dozen photos together… no more messing about with photoshop and it has loads of different ‘clever’ modes. Here are two shots first with out stacking and second with stacking. For full specifications click here

And two more.

Most of all it does not give you back ache.

And here are some other photos I have taken with it.

There is a new version out called the TG5 but it does not do the focus stacking and I think it is 12 mega pixels not 16 ???? and it costs more!!!!! Why ?

Cladonia pyxidata

These are growing on the wall at the end of my garden. The lichens are a species of Cladonia, probably pyxidata but I am not sure and there is also some moss.

The whole scene is about 5cm across…. a little world of its own.

Taken with the aid of a flash unit and then 4 photos stacked together.
