A handy compact camera!

The new unique camera is created through the teaming up of Yashica and Im Back. They started the program for the Micro Mirrorless on Kickstarter which received about USD 130,000 as support surpassing its target of USD 11,062.

The Micro Mirroless is a digital camera from the ground up featuring a tiny 12MP Sony IMX117 CMOS image sensor with a 1/2.3-inch which is quite unusually small. In relation, the same sensor is found on the GoPro Hero4 Black action camera.

With a 5.8 times crop factor provided by the image sensor, a 26mm lens would more closely resemble a 150mm telephoto, as explained by the makers.

In terms of lens, the Micro Mirrorless features a built-in lens mount and is compatible with three uniquely made lenses with compact and lightweight features. In actual focal length terms, the 20mm, 50mm, and 150mm equivalent lenses measure 3.4mm, 8.6mm, and 25mm, respectively. Unfortunately, there is no information with regard to the aperture yet. We will update this article once we find them.

When it comes to the lens, Im Back claims that the new product can work with large-format lenses if you attach an optional adapter. They claimed it can fit with SLR, DSLR, and mirrorless camera systems if you use the said adapter.

Meanwhile, the website also listed a coming soon teaser for an optional viewfinder attachment.
