Thanks so much. I will definitely look into that.
I am a nature photographer who has become fascinated by fungi. I live in The Chilterns in Oxfordshire and am trying to identify all the fungi that I photograph on a daily basis. I'm very grateful for any help you can give. Thanks!

Do folk still recommend the Olympus TG-6 for on-the-go macro fungi photography? Does anyone here have any experience of how easy the OLympus software is to use?

Still using the TG4. The same comment as earlier. Good camera for someone with little or no camera skills and tends to abuse the equipment. I see no reason why the TG6 should be any different

The only trouble with these cameras is the lack of a cover for the glass in front of the lens. This means you have to put it in a case after every shot or it gets scratched.

People say that modern smartphones are as good as these compact cameras? Anyone have the TGx series and a smartphone with realwold experience?
