Xiaomi YI Action Camera 4K
Xiaomi has launched the updated version of the YI Action Camera, the YI 4K Action Camera, which, as you can tell, now records in 4K. Xiaomi YI, is lightweight camera, that can record videos in full HD in 30 and 60 frames per second.Yi Action Cam we see it has the same MicroSD slot, mini-USB and micro HDMI ports. Moreover, camera can capture still images in true 16 megapixels. Its biggest advantage is its price and overall value that you get from this low-budget device.Other than sharing new specs and features, the reviews include video, contrast and low-light shooting comparisons.The lens is a seven element piece with 155 degree viewing angle and f2.8 aperture.
The Yi Action Cam uses the same video processer manufacturer as GoPro, though it uses an Ambarella A7LS processor compared to the A9 chip in the HERO4 and the HERO3 Black’s A7.The YI 4K has a 12 megapixel Sony IMX377 sensor, that can also shoot stills in native resolution along with 4K video.
For this review Geekpark set the three cameras to shoot 1080p/30fps and mounted them to a parallel testing device. Along with 4K at 30fps, the camera can also record in 2.5K at 30fps or 1440p at 60fps.The selfie stick itself is really neatly looking one, and definitely looks much better then most cheap ones you will find online.
The six axis gyroscope enables the electronic image stabilization. On the back is a 2.19-inch touchscreen LCD.
