Are you planning for the vacation this summer and have packed all the goodies, then what about your action camera for yours action adventure that what you need it most in this summer. Well for that Xiaomi Yi 4K Action Camera 2 to make your holidays more delightful, hitting store near you this July.
On July 12th, YI Technology is launching their YI 4K Action Camera, and it’ll be available for just $249. This is their competitor to the likes of GoPro. The camera, as you can probably tell by the name, does shoot in 4K. In fact it shoots at 30FPS in 4K, when it drops down to 1080p, you have the ability to shoot in 120FPS and 720p can do even slower slow-motion at 240FPS.
The YI 4K camera features a 12 MP Sony IMX377 sensor, which can record and shoot stills in native resolution. Going hand in hand with the sensor is a seven-layer lens with 160-degree field of view and f/2.8 aperture.
The YI 4K Action Camera does also sport a 2.19-inch LCD display, which is a touchscreen display. It’s rather low resolution at 640×360 however. Powering the YI Action Camera is a 1400mAh battery which is rechargeable. YI Technology touts that this battery can record up to 120 minutes of 4K at 30FPS. Obviously the battery will last longer if you are shooting in 1080p. It does also sport built-in Bluetooth as well as WiFi on 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, to connect with the wireless remote control as well as the YI Action App that is available for Android.
Also included extra features are dual-band Wi-Fi support (2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz), a microSD card slot and Bluetooth 4.0 compatibility to sync with your phone.
