Busy week over here at PhotoJoseph's Photo Moments. We started off the week rounding out the "series" of videos using the Pearl-2. On Tuesday, Joseph covered creating custom white balance, and if you should use white or grey to get it right. A new GH5 arrived Tuesday afternoon, so Wednesday's show was an unboxing. Thursday was a test of the YouTube iOS app "go Live" function…with a bit of an Inception-like "stream within a stream". And on Friday, Joseph tried to show off macro extension tubes…but had a curveball thrown at him.

The last of the series on the Epiphan Pearl-2 (then I have to send this back... oh wait... I left the country... I'm SO not returning this thing 😁 ). This time we're taking a single 4K video stream and turning into multiple HD feeds.

Creating a custom white balance in-camera is easier than ever. But should you use a white card or a grey card to do it?

My new GH5 is here; this one in a box! Let's see what's included... granted this box has been passed around the Luminary team a bit, but we can still check it out ;-) 

The native iOS YouTube app is rolling out YouTube live to its users. It started out for those with 10k or more followers (of which I'm not!), but it just showed up for me last night. Apparently it's still not available for everyone still, but it appears to be coming!

Have you ever played with macro extension tubes? Let's see what we can do with them, both on normal and macro lenses!
