Yongnuo teases YN450 mirrorless camera with Android, 4G connectivity
Chinese company Yongnuo has revealed plans to launch an Android-based mirrorless camera. The model is being referred to as "YN450," but Yongnuo is soliciting name suggestions in a new contest on its Facebook Page. The public has until January 2019 to submit their name ideas.
The Yongnuo mirrorless interchangeable lens camera features 4G connectivity and runs on the Android operating system, which is accessible via a touchscreen display that covers the entire back of the camera. PhotoRumors elaborates on the Facebook post, claiming the YN450 camera will feature a memory card, headphone jack, 4000mAh battery, 4K/30fps video recording, support for RAW files, and built-in GPS.
Yongnuo will reveal the model's final name in January 2019 and send contest winners a YN50mm F1.8C/N YONGNUO lens. As noted by MirrorlessRumors, the January date hints at a possible CES 2019 unveiling, though the company hasn't confirmed the rumor.

Tamron is developing a fast, compact 70-180mm F2.8 tele-zoom for full-frame Sony mirrorless cameras. The lens will weigh just 815g (1.8 lbs) and will offer a linear focus motor, weather-sealing and a short minimum focusing distance.
Tamron has announced three compact F2.8 macro lenses for full-frame Sony mirrorless cameras. Buyers can choose between 20, 24 and 35mm flavors, all of which are the same size, have a 0.5x magnification and use 67mm filters.
Both features have been discovered in the app code by a reverse engineer and activated manually.
