Guys... i know it's a bit off topic for you but i just need some advice to point me to the right direction.

I just bought a Yi M1 (mirrorless m4/3 camera) but unfortunately its video mode is just too limited by the company.
It has a very low bitrate, 30 min rec limit, no 24fps in 4k and 2k modes, a lot of noise in the shadows and just now on the v3.0 of the firmware we have full manual control in video mode.

I know nothing about coding but i am looking for a way to write some simple scripts for the camera.
Where do i start?

If someone is willing to help me, here it is the v3.0 of the firmware:
