In this episode of On-Photography, we will be looking at the neat find we made, as let me ask you a question? Have you ever needed 12 volts to power something but only had a 5 volt USB power bank? Well that was my problem too and I solved for less then $10 bucks! Now I was all set to solder up my own circuit and all but when I came across this, it was cheaper than I could even think of making one for!

What if you connected a majorly BIG lens to your YI M1 what would the pictures look like? Would they be any good, is it hard to focus and so on! Well we are going to hit the cold empty beaches of Lake Huron and see! Because we a going to connect 500mm long refractive lens via T-Mount to the YI M1 and do some LONG distance shooting so will it be a bust is there some value here? Well see for yourself!

So with the new version 3 firmware out, how does video stabilization work? Well since it is digital [stabilization] we know there will be some cropping so the smaller the resolution the likely better it will be. So we are going to take to the chilly November shores of Lake Huron and shoot some test video and see.
Note: the digital stabilization isn’t going to remove the jerkiness of my hand, yet should the shot. Now spoiler alert, watch the 4K version close then the 1080p. As the other thing I discover (if you can call it that) is the YI M1 needs a solid “focus” for the stabilization to work as what the computer inside the camera is doing, is finding reference points on each frame and digitally aligning them. So if the focus fall out or softens, the stabilization with lose the points and therefore stabilization will be lost
My summary: It is better then nothing, however far from pro and for a $300 camera it still is mind numbing the number of pro-sumer features it packs in and the fact YI keep improving it via firmware. So as an entry level camera on budget, I highly recommend it!
