Xiaomi Yi 4K camera with touch screen
Xiaomi Yi 4K the GoPro 4 Killer
As I remember, Xiaomi Yi was the first camera that I introduced here on Best Action Camera. Now it’s time to write some words about the newer upgraded Xiaomi Yi 4K model. In my opinion, this Yi 4K camera 2 looks like a completely new product, not like an upgraded version of its predecessor.
Unlike any other GoPro clones, this Xiaomi Yi 4K features a generous 2.19″ live-view LCD screen with touch screen and Gorilla Glass.
Thanks to the Ambarella A9 SoC imaging processor, which is also used on the GoPro Hero 4 Black edition, this Xiaomi Yi camera 2 is capable to record videos with 4K resolution at 30 frames per second.
While the previous Xioami camera featuread a 16 MP Sony imaging sensor this new Yi 4K features a 12.53 MP one (Sony IMX377).
In order to record some cool slow motion footage, this camera allows to capture Full HD 1080P videos at 120FPS and HD 720P videos at 240FPS.
As I’m a drone enthusiast, I’m curious if it will have AV-out for first person view flights.
