It’s been an incredible first day at VidSummit and I have a ton of notes of things I may do to the channel. Let’s take a quick look at the list of what I've learned so far!
Many of you know I'm doing a photography workshop in India in Jan/Feb of 2019 https://photojoseph.com/india in case you don't). I'm now planning a scouting trip in November, and thought it was a crying shame to do this alone. So… ONE person can come with me on this INCREDIBLE whirlwind tour of India. It won't be cheap… but it will be epic. Is it going to be you?
The Panasonic Leica 15mm f/1.7 lens is one of the first high-end micro four thirds lenses I started using, and I've been in love with it since day one. Let's see some sample photos and hear my thoughts after years of use.
For those using Lightroom Mobile, a change in iOS 12 has made importing and managing your photos (between Lightroom and the Photos app) just a little bit easier. Follow along to see how you can streamline your mobile workflow!
Lensbaby is known for funkilicious lenses, and the Sol is no exception. I took it out for morning of fun on a LUMIX G9 and LUMIX GH5S… let's see what it can do!
Ever made a shooting mistake with your camera settings? Yeah, me too. Learn from PhotoJoseph. Don't be like PhotoJoseph. Grrrr…
Why should every photographer and cinematographer have an Variable ND (neutral density) filter? How does it even work?! I hear you cry! Well, wonder no more, because this show will explain it all.
The rumors were true. Panasonic is developing a full frame LUMIX series, the LUMIX S1 & LUMIX S1R. Learn about them, and other announcements from Photokina!
Extension tubes are awesome. They turn any lens into a macro lens, and they're very inexpensive. So, why bother buying a macro lens then? Is it worth having the macro? Or are the tubes good enough?
This is just one mass unboxing free-for-all… and there's a little bit for everyone. Looking for some LED lights? Take a look at the Aputure Amaran Tri-8s. Need a simple stabilizing tripod alternative for your camera? The Platypod Max just might be for you. Would an external monitor make your workflow easier? The “new kid on the block” PortKeys LH5T has a touch screen! Want to use your phone as a second (or third) camera? The Viewflex Video Kit VF-H6 Video Grip will get the job done!
Think Tank has done it again, with an excellent upgrade to the already superb soft & form-fitting Retrospective 7 bag. Is version 2 worth buying a whole new bag over? Let's find out!
I've been using this massive BenQ 31.5” 4K HDR monitor for some time now… so, what do I think?
Apple's September 2018 Keynote presentation event came and went, and we had some fun during the show, (make sure you join us again this coming spring!). Apple Watch Series 4 is coming out, (right after I replaced mine… of course), as well as multiple versions of the iPhone X. This is my post-show (post-bio-break) takeaway from the September Keynote Event.
There is a lot of junk on Amazon, and filtering through it all can be a fool's errand. So how about we grab some random inexpensive video product and see what it can do? This dimmable LED ring light is one such thing. It's white. It's orange. It's dimmable. It comes with a light stand and smartphone mount. But… is it any good?
Ever seen a bendable, flexible, twistable LED light? No? Then allow me to shed some light on that.
Have you ever played with an Infrared converted camera? It's a lot of fun and can create some totally unique images. Let's have a little fun!
