Macro Photography for One-of-a-Kind Programming

A member of the Canadian Association of Science Centres, MIGHTYmacro provides science centres, children’s museums, aquariums, Canadian science centresplanetariums, and other venues of informal learning about science, technology or nature, with compelling, interactive displays with macro photography.

  • Get more people visiting the centre, and in outreach programs, engaged through interactive displays: Click-Zoom deep down to the macro-level of insects, rocks, circuit boards, etc. Evoke wonder!
  • Keep better records of your collections: Higher resolution, data-rich (gigapixel) images via automated capture (less manual labour) using technology that won’t be obsolete in 10 years. Click-Share with scientists anywhere in the world!

Features of our macrophotography include:

  • Extreme close-up images from tiny objects to very large pieces
  • Ultra-high resolution
  • Deep focus (several layers in focus at the same time)
  • Digitized for interaction by the public (CLICK-ZOOM)
  • Easily shareable with colleagues, researchers anywhere in the world (CLICK-SHARE)
