  1. Hey guys Right now I have the opportunity to use my dads very expensive camera to take pictures of my plants and I want to use macro shots.

    The camera is a Olympus E 510.. Could anyone tell me how to set it to macro?
  2. I think that is an SLR, so you'll need a macro lens. I don't think it has a macro setting.
  3. This.

    It's a D-SLR, OP, so you have to have a macro lens to take macro shots. If you open the aperture up the whole way (smaller f-stop) you might be able to get some decent "macro-like" shots. Or just close the aperture down the whole way (larger f-stop) and get everything in focus if that's what you're going for.
