Android smartphone with huge sensor and Canon's professional mirror lens?


For our virtually unknown Chinese company, Yongnuo introduced its latest product – the CSC camera with the designation YN450. If you've ever seen this tag in your name, you probably will not even mind it, but when you read that it's an Android smartphone with a Canon EF bayonet lens …

Do we have the frenzy this year before? It took up to 11 months to get it? This Frankenstein can act as an interesting CSC machine, but it is not part of it. Mostly physical. But a little boy.

Yongnuo YN450 is mainly a camera that combines an Android smartphone. We had this here and it did not even matter to Samsung or Nikon. This combination is not really interesting for photographers. Waiting a few minutes until the camera calls is unimaginable.

The relatively slim body on the back has a 5 "Full HD touchscreen that features the Android 7.1 operating system interface. This is another mystery because the manufacturer has not even hit the new Android 8.0 or Android 9.0.

Inside, a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor from Panasonic is used by the manufacturer. This is a Micro 4/3 chip that a Japanese manufacturer uses on their CSC devices. Funny is the double LED flash information. It has practically no use in such a device. Render shows xenon flash …


The 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor allows the Yongnuo YN450 to record up to 4K Ultra HD videos at 30 fps. Surprisingly, however, there are only 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. This can be extended by a microSDHC card with up to 32 GB. Even in this case, there are individual workpieces visible or a reasonably long development with the use of several years of hardware.

But Yongnuo wants to have a different subject, and it's a bayonet for Canon's lenses. The manufacturer's rendering is even a professional lens with a focal length of 14 mm from Canon.

To be a bit, more precisely, next to the viewfinder in shooting mode, there is an 8-megapixel webcam. Yongnuo YN450 also has a GPS module, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, but also LTE. All this has to feed a battery of 4,000 mAh.

And now for this physics. If the Canon L-tip lenses could be used so easily, it would be too long for the lens manufacturer on their CSC devices and would not develop new lenses for the EOS R. The extremely short distance between the sensor and the lens start certainly brings failures.

By the way, Yongnuo has launched a competition to name this Frankenstein …
