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?!
How bokehlicious is this? Swirly, soft bokeh with a unique lens featuring a double aperture… whaaa??? THIS is the Lensbaby Burnside Lens!
This super cool (I hope) lens I bought on Kickstarter a while ago just arrived… it's a M43 pinhole lens for my LUMIX cameras from a company called Thingyfy! Let's open it up and check it out, and if you want one, go to http://photojoseph.com/thingyfy
The Velvet 56mm f/1.6 Lens from Lensbaby produces a creamy, uniquely soft, glowing image quality, and is great for capturing those dream-like portraits. You can control the softness with the f-stops and still achieve a shallow depth of field. Lensbaby is a third-party manufacturer, and offers versions of these lenses for all sensor sizes/brands.
We've got a variety of products to talk about, just in time for some last-minute Christmas shopping for the Photo/Video enthusiast in your life: The Westcott Eyelighter Reflective Panel and lensbaby velvet. Also, a general Q&A.
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.
Well, it's that kind of morning where things didn't go as planned BEFORE the show went live. Looks like we're just taking a first look at the Mactrem 2-in-1 Macro Lens Cell Phone Lens Kit.
Have you explored the world of vintage glass? I'm just opening that door, and this could be fun!
