Xiaomi Yi 4K Camera: A Budget Alternative For GoPro
Xiaomi has unveiled the newest generation of its Yi Action Camera series -- the Yi 4K -- which many tech savvies suggest as the budget alternative for GoPro's most affordable edition.
Coined from the name itself, the latest device shoot 4K videos at 30fps as well as 2.5K at 30fps and 1440p at 60fps. Slowmo videos are possible at 1080p at 120fps, 960p at 120fps or 720p at 240fps. And opposite to that, time lapse shots are in 4K at 0.5/1/2/5/10/30/60 second intervals, according to GSM Arena.
Talking about specs, the Yi 4K is equipped with a 12MP Sony IMZ377 image sensor featuring a sensor size of 1/2.3-inch sensor size, 7P lens with f/2.8 aperture and 155 degree angle view, according to Tech.Firstpost. This is the same sensor used in Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, the Unbox revealed.
Display on the rear side is a 2.19-inch, 30 PPI touchscreen LCD with a resolution of 640 x 360 pixels and protected with Corning Gorilla Glass. It also has a dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz Wi-Fi support and Bluetooth 4.0 to pair with an Android device.
Xiaomi's Yi 4K action camera also uses Ambarella A9SE95 chipset, which is similar to that of Go Pro's Hero4. Meanwhile, in terms of battery life, the device is equipped with a 1400mAh battery, able to withstand a 2-hour 4K video recording.
Xiaomi's latest action camera has three different colors to choose from, including black, white and rose gold. Even though this is quite wider than its predecessor, the Yi 4K is still way smaller than GoPro Hero4 with dimensions at 2.36 x 0.83 x 1.65 inches.
Although the product is not immediately available for the U.S. consumers, the newest member of the Xiaomi family is available at Gearbest for $249.99, according to The Verge. Other online sites such as banggood.com and geekbuying.com are accepting orders.
