The folks at Yongnuo have posted a Micro Four Thirds camera module with an EF mount for the iPhone on their web site.

There are no specifications as of yet, but DIYPhotography appears to be the first to spot this interesting creation. We’ve seen similar products in the past from the likes of Sony and Olympus, so we’re not sure how successful this attempt is going to be.

Head over to DIYPhotography to read more about the YN43 from Yongnuo.

A Canon Rumors reader has sent us an image from the Apple App Store that seems to suggest this may be a 16.6mp sensor.

Thanks Joylon

Im going to get one as a crop factor for my 500mm.  There may be a few ergonomic issues but the weight savings will be worth it!

Oh dear, highly corrected glass for imaging on such a small sensor... worth the weight. Not.

Finally!  A mirrorless option for my EF Glass  ;D

HDR photos look best when I can't see them.

It really reminds me of the Olympus AIR..... one of the worst selling cameras ever. It set a new standard for bad ergonomics.

Just because something is technically possible does not mean that it is a good idea....
The best camera is the one in your hands

Bad experiences with yongnuo?

I’ve been pretty happy with my yongnuo 600rt flash clones and triggers, they are a quarter the cost of the canons.  While the quality is not on par the low price makes them a good way to supplement canon flashes (hummingbirds for me)8, now I have pretty low expectations for tech support or repair services and would have the same low expectations for yongnuo glass.   Buy use dispose when broke.

Absolutely, check this out!   What could possibly go wrong?

Going out of the house with this would qualify as suicide attempt in the US.

No its okay they have a right to bear arms so the Olympus Air would be fine

Yongnue are a great company. Their flashes and controllers are excellent in my opinion.
I'm not sure I'd have much use for on of those - a compact backup camera perhaps but I don't think it will do too well

I don't understand. Why not just make a shameless clone of a Canon 5D series body using the EF mount and M43 sensor? That seems like something Yongnuo would be more than happy to do.

A strange being - from the viewpoint of a photgrapher.

But much more interesting for teaching physics. I would like to demonstrate that inside a falling bottle (or box) you will experience zero forces. Would like to invite some ants or other insects for demonstration (and guarantee a soft landing on a jumping blanket held by the studends) with a live view. For that purpose I need a camera with a  MF lens in a compact size. I have a 25mm lens, if my memory serves well a pentax lens from their pocket film format SLR - yes, memory is consistent: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentax_Auto_110 - with the 24mm FL (only the lens arrangement) and with the help of 3D printing it should be possible to make a simple focusing unit.

But my interest depends on the price of that camera and its compatibility e.g. to a windows notebook.

... and writing this I remember another pending project: A document camera which I can give to students to present their homework from their places but with a beamer projection for the audience. For those who do not prefer to stand in the center too much :)
Most used tools: EOS 200D + EF-S 60mm + 4.0 / 70-200 IS AND/OR EOS 5D i  + 4.0 70-200 IS + 2.8 100 Macro
