Learn how having accessories like extra batteries, a camera bag, and a tripod will help you take better photos with your digital camera.

The Olympus 75mm f/1.8 is a powerful telephoto lens for Micro 4/3 cameras. The lens acts like a 150mm lens would on a "full frame" camera, but at a much smaller size and weight. Its large, f/1.8 maximum aperture takes in a lot of light and lets you blur backgrounds for creative effect.

The Olympus 45mm f/1.8 lens features a light-gathering, dimension-enhancing f/1.8 aperture and a perfect length for portrait photography that's equivalent to 90mm on a 35mm camera.

The Olympus 12mm f/2.0 lens features a generous, expansive wide angle that's perfect for sweeping landscapes, city panoramas, or your group of friends posing together in your cozy living room. Plus, the wide f/2.0 aperture lets you work with the light that's available.
