Watch out GoPro! Xiaomi is coming after your action cam market with an amazingly low budget camera.
The Xiaomi Yi Action Camera has a 155 degrees viewing angle and features a 16 megapixel camera capable of shooting 1080p video at 60 frames per second. Weighing just 72 grams, the Yi camera can be used up to 40 meters underwater. It has a 64GB built in storage.
Surprisingly, the Xiaomi Yi Action Camera uses the high quality Sony Exmor R CMOS image sensor. It also comes with a smartphone app that can remotely control the camera.
The specs of the Xiaomi Yi Action Camera are quite comparable to GoPro’s entry level camera on paper. One thing that Xiaomi doesn’t have is the wide range of accessories like GoPro. But hey, they have a cat harness.
The Xiaomi Yi Action Camera is only available in China at the moment. Retailing at just $399CNY (approx S$87).
