Thanks, @Gaia80.
Most of the recent pictures are taken with Olympus TG5 compact camera.
If you are considering getting it, don't bother but go for the new model, TG6 which is recently launched, it is a much better camera with a few nicer features for better macro photography. I have already ordered the new TG6 :)
