Top 5 Best Bridge Cameras for Macro Photography | Point and Shoot Cameras for Macro

Today I’m gonna talk about 5 best bridge cameras for macro photography. They may not be able to match an expensive DSLR with a 1:1 magnification macro lens, but are great if you wanna start with macro photography and don’t wanna invest lakhs in gear. A point and shoot will be light weight and cost effective, and can also give you sharp, well-lit, and magnified images.

When it comes to macro photography, the lens is more important than the camera. The lens should allow you to go close to the subject and should be designed to capture small items at a size equal to or bigger than a 1:1 ratio. So here are the 5 bridge cameras for macro photography.

1. Ricoh WG-50

The body of the Ricoh WG-50 is incredibly durable; not only is it waterproof down to 14m, it’s also shockproof, freezeproof, and crushproof. Its ability to take excellent macro shots underwater, make it an appealing choice for some users. Price on Amazon Rs 47,999.

2. Olympus TG-5

Another waterproof camera on the list is the Olympus TG-5. It is waterproof to 50 feet, dustproof, shockproof from 7 feet, crushproof to 220 lbs. and even freezeproof to -14 degrees means you can’t destroy this camera easily.  It is a great tool for macro photography, as the macro mode lets you focus from 1cm to infinity. Price on Amazon Rs 69,086.

3. Nikon Coolpix W300

This is the next waterproof camera on our list. Like the Ricoh camera, it has a dedicated macro mode that can focus as close as 1cm. This mode, coupled with the 5x optical zoom and Vibration Reduction technology make it a stronger performer as a macro camera. This camera is available in 4 different colours and the price is different for each colour, but it is around Rs 25000.

4. Panasonic DC-ZS70 Lumix

Next on the list is the Panasonic DC-ZS70 Lumix priced at Rs 59,999 on Amazon. It has 4K video recording capacity, 30x optical zoom, and 20.3 Megapixel MOS sensor. One of the mean features that drive this macro performance is the ability to focus stack, effectively giving a larger depth of field than would otherwise be possible. It also has a macro mode that means the minimum focusing distance is 3cm. 

5. Fujifilm FinePix XP130

Integrates four rugged protection features: waterproof to 65ft/20m, freezeproof to 14°F/-10°C, shockproof to withstand drops from 5.8ft/1.75m, and dustproof to keep out sand and other foreign particles.
