News: Yi M1 - Cheap Compact Mirrorless

Yi M1
Looking to get a compact mirrorless digital camera, but don't want to break the bank? The Chinese company Yi just announced a new camera coming out in a couple of days: the M1.

What's interesting is that this camera has a 20-megapixel micro-four-thirds sensor, and I'm guessing it's the same sensor found inside the Olympus PEN-F. The camera has a touch screen, WiFi and Bluetooth. It can save in DNG RAW and can capture 4K video. In other words, on paper, it looks like a decent camera.

You will be able to buy the M1 bundled with a 12-40mm f/3.5-5.6 lens for $330 or with a 42.5mm f/1.8 lens for $450. And, being a micro-four-thirds camera, there are tons of other lenses available by different manufacturers.

Sounds pretty intriguing to me. If you are on a tight budget (and who isn't these days?), this is one to consider.
