Pick it up, turn it on and simply shoot the world as you see it.

With shooting modes for every scenario, every snap can deliver brilliance.

Different scenarios require different shutter speed, aperture, and ISO settings in order to get the perfect picture. High shutter speed with a wider aperture gives you a blurred background, which will emphasize the main subject. The narrower aperture gives an all-round sharper image. Lower ISO value gives you clearer details. It may sound complicated, but YI M1 has made it simple with a preset mode for each scenario. All you need to do is pick the right mode and press the shutter button.
