A renowned Chinese manufacturer of lenses, lights, and cameras named Yongnuo has just introduced a new camera specially designed for live streaming called the Yongnuo YN433. With its Micro Four Thirds image sensor and Android operating system, this camera is tailored for live broadcasting, video conferencing, and other streaming applications.
We are talking about an interchangeable lens camera that supports micro four-thirds (M43) lenses — it is worth noting that this camera differs from its predecessor, the YN455, which features an EF lens mount. The YN433 is equipped with features specifically aimed at video shooting and live streaming. However, it is surprising to find that it lacks built-in WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, despite supporting an external USB network card.
Versatile Connectivity and Ease of Setup
The camera boasts a full-size HDMI port, a USB-C port, and two 3.5mm jacks for audio input and output. Additionally, it includes USB-C ports for connecting storage devices and power delivery. Setting up a live stream with the YN433 is straightforward according to an eBay listing.
Users simply need to insert a power supply, connect the camera to a computer via USB, press the front-facing mode button until the “UVC” mode indicator light turns on, and then open the accompanying live streaming software on the connected computer.
Specs and Features
The YN433 features a 20-megapixel M43 image sensor coupled with an 8-core 2.2GHz processor, offering excellent performance. It comes with 64GB of internal flash storage and 6GB of RAM, ensuring sufficient space for storage and smooth operation. The camera supports USB-C power delivery but can also be powered using an LP-E6 battery.
Although the YN433 is primarily geared toward live streaming, it is capable of capturing still images as well. The camera even includes built-in modes for time-lapse photography, showcasing its versatility.
Additional Details and Considerations
While information about the YN433 is limited at the time of publication, it’s worth noting that there is no explicit mention of an autofocus system. Therefore, it is possible that the camera relies on manual focus.
Detailed specifications regarding video modes, file types, and frame rates are also currently unavailable. However, considering that the YN433 shares the same processor and sensor as the YN455, it is likely that the maximum video resolution is capped at 4K 30p.
Pricing and Availability
The Yongnuo YN433 is available for purchase through various resellers on eBay, with a “Buy it now” option priced at $568. Customers can also try their luck by making an offer.
Although further details about certain features are still limited, the YN433’s impressive specifications make it a compelling choice in the world of live streaming and video conferencing.
