Quick Macro Mode Test on Olympus XZ-1

Note, this is not the Super Macro mode where it allows focussing distance as close as 1 cm from the lens.  This is the standard Macro mode.  Also, it is not as sharp as it can be due to a slight breeze and shots being taken hand-held, so please do not regard this as the capability of the camera.  I only meant to show what you can do on an ad-hoc basis with the camera hanging on your neck.

Bunga Raya I

The 100% crop of the area around the flower’s filament (the part that connects the anther to the main body of the flower.

100% Crop Bunga Raya I

A shot of the anther.  Note that there was a slight breeze and hence the clarity of the fine “brush” is lost. The original shot.

Bunga Raya II

100% crop of the area near the filament and the anther (focused on the “dead” anther).

100% Grop Bunga Raya II

The sharpness, in my humble opinion, is pretty good for a compact camera.
