Camera Hire

Ever wanted to try out a specialised macro camera?

We have a range of Olympus & OM SYSTEM camera equipment available for hire.  Try your hand at macro photography, and capture some incredible images. Only available during your Let’s Go Buggin or Let’s Go Shroomin adventure in the Cairns Botanic Gardens.

OPTION 1 – Olympus TG-6

For those wanting something robust, small and easy to use, the Olympus TG-6 is a tried and true point-and-shoot compact camera with big results! Four Macro shooting modes makes this an excellent option for both insects and fungi. With its tiny minimum focusing distance of 1cm (0.4″) and small proportions, it’s perfect to get up-close-and-personal with your subjects. This highly-praised camera is light, waterproof and durable and would suit beginners and children.

OPTION 2 – OM-D E-M5 III with 60mm M.Zuiko Lens and Flash Diffuser Combo

The next level up for those keen to get some brilliant macro images. The combination of this medium-sized body with a professional-level macro lens, flash and diffuser is an ideal camera setup for those wanting to try out macro photography at a high level. With Bridgette’s assistance and settings suggestions, you can get images you’ve always dreamed of. The E-M5 III camera body is a 20 MegaPixel Micro four-thirds Mirrorless camera that has many of the main features of the top-of-the-range Olympus & OM SYSTEM cameras, in a slightly smaller and lighter package. The flip-out LCD screen is a fantastic feature that will allow you to get many images that are impossible with some other cameras. The 60mm M.Zuiko lens is a professional-level macro lens that is favoured by many macro photographers around the world. It’s a true 1:1 macro lens with a built-in focus-limiter, and combined with the above-mentioned body, has excellent auto-focus capabilities. With the majority of macro photography, and indeed on the Let’s Go Buggin Tours, it is necessary to have a flash to get the best images. This hire package also includes a Godox Speedlight flash and macro flash diffuser to give you the best opportunity to capture some incredible images.
