Yongnuo has launched its first camera based on the Android operating system called Yongnuo YN450 at the CP+ 2019 exhibition. This smart 4G mirrorless camera will come with Panasonic’s Micro Four Thirds sensor and be able to use Canon’s EF mount lenses.
The top of the camera has a physical shutter button that supports half-press for focus. The simple underside includes battery cover and mounting tripod hole. The removable 4000mAh battery and replacement Front cover includes 2 LED flash lamp. It has a 5.0-inch Multi-touch screen display with FHD+ resolution. The camera also has a 3.5mm headphone jack, SIM slot, and a memory card tray and completed the device with the Android 7.1 Nougat interface.
Through the video as well as the actual image obtained from CP+ 2019 exhibition, it can be seen that the quality of a product from China does not seem good when using rubber and plastic layers that look quite low-end, The SIM and the headphone slots section really look disappointing.
However, Yongnuo should also have realized the idea that has existed for a long time, but is still on paper: a combination of a phone and a camera that can change lenses. Especially with its compact size and the ability to shoot 4K video at 30fps, this can be a convenient choice with a soft price for amateur filmmakers.
