People use iphone just don't know enough or don't care picture quality

even 1 inch sensor greatly exceed it in IQ
Canon G9X only 200 gram , Panasonic LX10 300 gram
all with real zoom
anyone with slightest interest in photography no reason not carrying a real camera

sick and tired hear the constant iphone talk
those are for people who are NOT photographers
a person using iphone should be ashamed to called himself a photographer

Most wanted in order of importance
1. Weather seal
2. in body 5 axis IS
3. brighter aperture like F2
4. wider lens like 24mm
5. 24 MP copper sensor as in A6300

Please Ricon, #1 most important, give all of us (the whole photographer community) a large sensor weather seal camera

For landscape 28mm is most narrow that can be accepted
even 30mm too narrow. I am surprised many often mention 35mm
They are for certain not landscape photographer

24mm even better but I can tolerate 28mm
any narrower not suitable for landscape

Just the sensor alone is worth the price (the Chinese original price) even if the camera is just functional

If it is decent than it is crazy value

Look at China price of this and think about how overprice Olympus/Panasonic camera is
Either they make unreasonable profit or their cost too high

dansclic: I would never buy from a company who copies Apple and puts non removable spywares in their smartphones. Ethics is important.

With that logic u can said all smartphone including Samsung copy Apple

So can only buy Apple phone.

Jefftan: I think Yi just killed the 16 megapixel MFT camera
I am sure from now on Panasonic and Olympus would not dare to put 16 megapixel sensor even in their cheapest camera

expensive one like the new g85 with 16 megapixel is a joke
When they design this they probably not aware Yi M1 exist

now they probably regret doing so. Seeing how much this M1 cost, they are really cheating their customer using an old sensor on new and expensive camera. Even E-PL8 is a rip off, G85 more so

All MFT people should thank Yi for killing the stupid old 16 MP sensor
Thanks XiaoYi, sincere thank you from me

"Hmm, such "stupid old 16 MP sensor" gave me superb pictures now for years on my Oly EM5 and continues so until today ;-)! "

U can say 10 years old camera give u superb pictures with 8 MP ( or 5MP who knows) too
The fact is good enough doesn't mean wanting something even better in a NEW camera is wrong

Panasonic/Olympus know that too and make u paid Pen F/GX8 price
People should really thank Yi for bringing 20 MP to the mass

MFT before Yi is becoming ridiculous when entry level APS-C is 24MP
yet many believe the Oly/Pana BS that 16MP is enough

Told u the truth, my 2011 NEX-5N is better than my 16MP GM5, It is actually very good not just good enough
So I will never need to buy a new camera because 16MP APS-C is good enough?
Doesn't make sense

El Chavo: So much hate for it but I don't get it why?

All Japanese companies basically copied German ones and here we are. There is no innovation without imitation at some point.

Heck so many photographers here, me included, copy styles and remix them to my/our taste. Why being so anal about it?

This little system is actually one of the only innovations this year in Photokina if we discount Sony and Fuji. I say good on them.
Remember: "Good artists copy; great artists steal" - Pablo Picasso (copied by Steve Jobs later on and by me now).

Hate?
Who?
not me, cheap latest generation 20MP Sony MFT sensor with 4k

We should all thankful whether u decide to buy all not
because it would put downward pressure to Olympus/Panasonic price and weight

kill the 16 MP sensor and stop the ridiculous trend of MFT going PRO (translate heavy and expensive)
In fact the Yi camera go back to the true spirit of MFT , lightweight, cheap, cutting edge

By the way of all new camera (not counting A6300) only 2 got my real interest
both entry level mean lightweight and cheap but both with advance sensor
1 Fuji X-A3
2 Yi M1
nothing else, not GH5,G85, Em1 II
just the weight would make me run away and without saying the crazy price

noflashplease: I wonder if we'll ever see a standalone, boxed version of Lightroom 7?

color is very subjective
unless the debate center on something objective
like realistic color as real life
or detail extract

this kind of debate is totally meaningless

In reply to:

Shiranai: You got the same thing wrong like a lot of news sites due to bad research.

The camera manufacturer is NOT Yi. Yi is a brand name like EOS or Instax.
The manufacturer is the well-known company Xiaomi, also responsible for smartphones, drones and robot vacuums.

I also doubt that Yi stands for "young innovators", that might also be some false information.

I know Chinese
XiaoYi mean little ant
not in any way related to young innovator

Have to buy the Yi M1 because I want to have that 20 MP Sony sensor
Guess even E-PL9 will always be 16MP

I most worry about AF
Looks like can't even select "central" AF point and use "lock and recompose"

also MF no magnified view in focus peaking

Focus is the number one worry
slow is not a big deal if for stable subect but if inaccurate than the whole camera useless

lightweight and cheap
20 megapixel latest generation sensor

This is what MFT camera should be
Look at what direction Olympus and Panasonic taking
Professional
which translate expensive and heavy

I still can't figure out how can they brainwash people to accept
professional and last generation sensor

FrankS009: You mentioned the Panasonic G1 off the top, and the EOS M5 reminded me of that camera before you mentioned it. A compliment to Canon. But the Canon tele lenses are going to be much bigger and heavier. APS cameras are an uncomfortable compromise - trying to be smaller, but with lenses that can't ignore physics. The best thing Canon or Nikon could do would be to join m4/3rds.

F.

I don't agree at least for nomal focal length
look at X-A3 with kit lens cover 24mm-75mm weight about 530 gram

APS-C is best compromise between weight and IQ
If u want tele the best bet is MFT

Link | Posted on Sep 19, 2016 at 02:10 UTC

Any Canon APS-C DSLR has 4k now?
Is there any technical reason no 4k and not just so u will have to buy m6 to get 4k?
