A few weeks ago I adapted a vintage M42 Russian Helios lens to my Micro Four Thirds LUMIX cameras, but the process was somehow incomplete. Now, we get the rest of the story with this cheap speed booster alternative made by Mitakon Zhongyi.

PhotoJoseph's Photo Moments
PhotoJoseph’s Photo Moments are a short video series that go live every weekday at 9:30am PDT. The topic can be anything photography related… gear, technique, what I’m shooting today, how I edited a photo… whatever! You can watch live at Facebook.com/PhotoJoseph and catch up on past ones here. If you want a question answered in a future Photo Moment, post it on a recent video or announcement on Facebook!
Have you heard of the platypod plate? No, not the egg laying mammal, but the spike footed camera support! It's a very handy device for stabilizing your camera in the most unusual of situations, and I've got one to show you!
Is color calibrating your computer screen necessary? My answer probably isn't going to surprise you, because “it depends”. If you are doing anything in the world of “print”… then the answer is a resounding YES. If you're just in the world of displaying your work digitally, then it's really up to you and what your eyes prefer.
I've got a (relatively) cheap wireless lav called the Comica CVM-WM100. Let's see what's in the box and how it stacks up against a Sennheiser at 4x the price!
There's another tiny LED light in town, from Sokani. I'm gonna compare it to the Aputure AL-M9 tiny LED and see how they stack up to each other. Let's have a look!
The epiphan Pearl Mini is a complete live streaming and switching package in a box not much bigger than a hardcover book. In this detailed training, we'll go through the complete setup and configuration. It's gonna be a long one, but don't worry… that's what chapter markers are for!
I produce THREE Photo Moments shows every week, so when it comes to editing them, every minute matters. My Final Cut Pro X workflow is very refined, using a series of custom effects presets and reusable assets. Check out my workflow and possibly pick up some tips for your Final Cut editing, and maybe offer some suggestions on how I can make mine even better!
Aputure is known for making very good LED lights that are popular among the YouTube community. They reached out to me to see if I was interested in doing a video on their Amaran HR672 (following my look at their little AL-M9), and I figured many of you would appreciate it — so here we go!
I've had a chance to use the new Panasonic Leica 50-200mm lens, and I want to share results and tell you what I think!
PhotoApps.Expert is now PhotoJoseph.com — so what does it mean, and where do I find things? All of your questions will be answered here!
I've been assembling a “frankenlens” out of the Helios 44-2 2/58, a M42 Converter, and a Wide Angle Adapter for fun and giggles, but it's not quite right… what do you think I should do next?!
Gyroor sent over one of their Warrior All Terrain Hoverboards for me to review, and an idea hit me. You've heard of gimbals… you've seen the hoverboard… what about a hover gimbal?! (OK it's just YOU on a hoverboard holding a camera, but seriously… this could work!!)
