We haven’t mentioned the Yi action cameras for a while but we really like them as they are close enough to a GoPro for many purposes at a much cheaper price.
Here is what we know:
- 2 fisheye 220 degree lenses
- 5.7K/30FPS and 4K/30FPS with auto-stiching
- 75 minutes of continue shooting at 4K
- $399 Price
- Sony image sensors
- Stated to be available in June
You can visit Yi’s website for more information.
You can view the specifications for this camera at the Yi Technology website. It’s nice to see 4K 60P finally show up in an action camera and we’re glad it’s Yi’s as they’ve had reasonable and value pricing in the past.
The sensor is the SONY IMX377 1/2.3” and will reportedly feature 4K 60FPS at 120Mbit.
Well it may not be a GoPro killer it is certainly a GoPro competitor and it should help to bring better prices to 4K action camera segment. The built in touch-screen display is a nice touch.
