HomeYI releases much-needed firmware update for Yi-M1 mirrorless camera

The YI Ultra Dash Camera’s image quality is twice as clear as 1080p resolution, and the 140° Wide-Angle lens provides an ideal field of view, covering three lanes with minimal lens distortion and capturing clear images of license plates or road signs without losing any details.

YI Technology’s latest camera supports video recording and image capture, allowing users to easily and efficiently control the camera with integrated voice control. The camera’s three-axis Gravity Sensor can be instantly activated and in case of collision, will store and lock entire collusion footage.

When we got our hands on Chinese camera maker YI’s first mirrorless camera, the YI-M1, we didn’t have a lot of positive things to say. Despite a great sensor, the camera was unrefined. But the company just released a new firmware version for the M1 that promises to smooth out some of its rougher edges.

Key updates include (much-needed) improved AF speed, the addition of a RAW+JPG shooting option, exposure control in P, A, S and M modes when shooting video, AF/MF control during video capture, and the addition of a histogram in live view while shooting both stills and video.

YI believes that the very best imaging and sensing technology should be easy to use and accessible to everyone. With the company’s passion, hard work and commitment to combining the highest quality technology solutions with great value, it aims to provide millions of users of all ages from every corner of the world with peace of mind, and inspire greater connection between families, friends and communities.
