Let’s look at the cons.
- it doesn’t contain memory card (buy separately);
- YI isn’t waterproof (need Waterproof Case for yi action camera);
- battery life could be better (about 55-60 min).
The thing people are most afraid about is that it is a Chinese camera. People who are well known with cameras highly recommend this one and suggest people should not be afraid of the state it’s made in. Everyone says that this cam is the almost only Chinese camera that impressed them so far.
When it comes to video options, it is comparable to GoPro Hero4. When it comes to cons users mentioned, it is true that it doesn’t come with extras, such as waterproof housing, memory card, and mounts. Yes, they need to be purchased separately. But, even purchased separately, those extras with both camera will cost you under the price of some other cam with the same quality. So, it’s a good thing to keep that in mind.
YI Action Camera has a very simple design, a small box with a 155-degree angle of view lens. The Wi-Fi button is placed on the side. Direct controls on the camera are the shutter button (to start and stop recording), a Mode button to switch on and off and between stills and videos. The setup and connection to the Wi-Fi is incredibly easy (initial passwork for WiFi is 1234567890).
The video quality is where it really stands out – well-balanced colors and no over-saturation and excess contrast, which is a common issue, you may agree.
So, let’s make a summary! This a great, cheap and high-quality video and photo camera, including Wi-Fi option. Incredibly easy to use, pocket sized and an ideal companion that can be used to capture quick lifestyle shots. YI Action Camera is great for everyone who wants a personal video/stills camera.
