Our smaller, lighter, incredibly portable cameras provide more freedom, more flexibility and more creative possibilities. The perfect combination of size, technology and compact lenses – allowing you to carry further, react more quickly and shoot for longer.


We run a wide range of workshops, touch & try events and unique experience days across the UK. If you’re looking to meet like-minded photographers, learn from the pros and get your hands on the latest kit then book one of our events today!


Test & Wow gives you the chance to make up your own mind. Those looking for something special can try out key Olympus products – simply pick up from your nearest authorised retailer and we’ll give you a full 24-hour day with your chosen equipment.


If you’re a serious photographer
with high-end, professional kit living in the UK, our Pro Loan service is for you. Try out the OM-D System for an extended 2-week period and see for yourself why so many photographers are switching to Olympus.


Which loan is right for me?

Are you putting a toe in the water? Then take a look at our events including our team’s in store days where you can often book individual demo sessions.

Wanting to spend a little more time with particular products? Check out our Test and Wow scheme available through selected Olympus Pro Dealers. These are being extended all the time

Full time pro or owning a significant range of high end bodies and lenses? Talk to us about extended loans where you can really put the system thought its paces.

I don't have a website, can I still apply for PRO loan?

As it suggests, the Pro Loan service is designed for professional photographers but we are also happy to talk to serious amateurs especially in wildlife, sports and outdoor as this is where the weather proofing and system mobility really excels. We ask for a website or social media channel to help us judge what sort of service to recommend.

Can I attend an event if I don't use Olympus kit?

Yes – we welcome all comers and a good mix of Olympus and non-Olympus users often works well as attendees can share experiences and tips.

I want to apply for Test & Wow, but there are no participating stores in my area.

We are expanding our Test and Wow locations all the time but if there is not one available in your immediate vicinity, we suggest attending an “Olympus Day” at your nearest Pro Dealer and talking to a representative there about options.
