Focus Bracketing, which slightly shifts the focus location in multiple shots, can be used for macro shooting. Using this function and photo editing software to composite the recorded images, you can create shots that look good enough to be in an illustrated encyclopedia.

  • Cameras equipped with Focus Bracketing mode: E-M1 firmware V4.0 and later, E-M5 Mark II firmware V2.0 and later, E-M10 Mark II, and PEN-F (as of May 2016)

This lets you shoot macro photos handheld, with confidence.

  • Cameras equipped with 5-axis IS: E-M1, E-M5 Mark II, E-M5, E-M10 Mark II, PEN-F, and E-P5 (as of May 2016)
