YI Technology: YI M1 Mirrorless Camera Features 20MP Sony EXMOR CMOS Sensor, Micro Four Thirds Mount, 4K Video

The Micro Four Thirds Standard is attractive to new companies jumping into the Interchangeable Lens Camera (ILC) market. Take the case of the latest newcomer, the XIAOYI (aka YI, Young Innovator) M1 mirrorless, with a Micro Four Thirds (MFT) mount, the Sony IMX269 image sensor, which is a 20MP Four-Thirds EXMOR sensor, 4K video at 30 fps, a 3″ 1.04M-dot touch LCD, and Real-time BLE Bluetooth Connection.

The following videos presents YI M1 Mirrorless Digital Camera:

There are two kit lenses available: a 42.5mm (85mm equiv.) F1.8 prime portrait lens and a 12-40mm (24-80mm equiv.) F3.5-5.6 zoom lens. Suggested retail price is US $499 (body + 12-40mm zoom), US $599 (body + 42.5mm prime) or US $699 (body + both lenses). Of course, having the MFT mount means that the YI M1 will also accept over 50 MFT lenses from Panasonic, Olympus and other lens manufacturers.

YI M1 with 42.5mm F1.8 and 12-40mm F3.5-5.6 zoom lenses

The YI M1 minimalist design is a tad too close for comfort to that of the Leica T, even sporting a red “dot” (square in this case). On top, there is the shutter button and an ON/OFF switch around it, the Mode Dial with a dedicated Movie button in the center, and a Command Dial. Like the Leica T, it relies heavily on its touch panel LCD for everything else.

Major features:

  • 20MP CMOS sensor
  • ISO 200-25600
  • 81-point Contrast detection AF, sensitive to -4EV
  • 4K/30p video
  • 3″ 1.04M-dot Touch LCD
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
