GoPro is single-handedly responsible for the boom in the action camera market, but it’s definitely not the only game in town anymore. Other companies have swooped in to launch some fantastic alternatives and we recently got to test one out when YI sent us a YI 4K Action Camera with Selfie Stick & Bluetooth Remote to try. This action camera is ultra-compact and yet it captures 4K Ultra HD footage that is absolutely gorgeous. And perhaps best of all, it costs about $80 less than GoPro’s most popular camera, which can only record at resolutions up to 1080p.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Records 4K/30fps (60mbps), 1080p/120fps, 720p/240fps video and 12MP photos using a 155° wide-angle lens with F2.8 aperture. Rechargeable 1400mAh high capacity 4.4V lithium-ion battery records up to 120 minutes of 4K/30fps video with a single charge.
- Built-in 2.19″ LCD touchscreen with 640 x 360 HD resolution for easy previewing. Designed with Gorilla Glass Retina to resist scratches. World’s leading technologies: Ambarella A9SE75 Chip, Sony IMX377 Image Sensor, 7 layers of glass lenses, and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) to guarantee ultra-clear and stable 4K video resolution and 12M pixel photos even in low light conditions.
