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?

Hardware: Lens Adapters
Here's a variety of lens adapters to and for Micro Four Thirds, including brand conversions, macro tubes, and more
(links to each product are in their respective videos)
Everyone knows about the Metabones Speed Boosters… but for those of us on a budget, that may be out of range. Does adapting full frame lenses have to be so expensive? Maybe not. Can this Pixco brand version do the same thing?
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.
How close can you get with macro extension tubes, and what lenses work best? In some cases, do you even need the macro tubes to get the shot you want? let's explore!
Switched to Micro Four Thirds, and have some old Canon glass laying around? Breathe new life into your old gear with these super inexpensive lens adapters!
In part 3, we see the problem I've run into with the Atomos Ninja Inferno and the V-Log footage on an HDR timeline. Do YOU know what's wrong?!
In part 1, I show off the GH5S ISO settings, discuss the difference between auto/low/high ISO settings, compare in-studio shots of ISO 400 vs 2500, then show test shots from the blacksmith shop shot in V-Log on an Atomos Ninja Inferno in Final Cut Pro X!
It's an AMA show! We haven't done one of these in a long time, (our viewers more more than prepared). We covered a wide range of topics concerning: The GH5S (one is on it's way), suggested lenses for a variety of specific uses, GH5 Autofocus with 150° Shutter Angle, a quick product rundown of everything on the desk, and so much more!
Joseph released a video over the weekend of his son running around in the woods. Let's go behind the scenes! It was recorded with a mix of modern and vintage technology. The setup was the GH5 body and the vintage Russian индустар (Industar) M39 Thread Count lenses. The video was then optimized for the iPhone X screen aspect ratio… and factoring in the notch.
