Short Review: Excellent UPGRADE to an already GREAT CAMERA!!! If you aren’t on a budget this camera offers enough improvements that make it worth the extra cost EVEN if you don’t need 4K/60FPS.. These improvements include EIS, Voice Command, Raw Support, and more! If you are on a budget and don’t need those features, the regular 4K cam from YI is a GREAT VALUE.. Remember, this fits the regular 4K case so if you have a waterproof case already, you can order this camera elsewhere (Check Yi Technologies Website) without the waterproof case and save a little cash!
This review will be updated as I play with the camera more
1.) Image quality is GREAT just like the first Yi 4K camera.. it really gives GoPro a run for it’s money at a MUCH lower price
2.) Works with the already released 4K Gimbal for the Yi 4K Action Camera
3.) Works with previous Yi 4K Action Camera batteries! THANK YOU FOR THIS YI!!! I hate having to buy a new stockpile of batteries when a new camera comes out
4.) Sound quality is excellent without the case on and is decent WITH the case on
5.) Battery Life still AMAZES me!! The Yi 4K action camera revolutionized the Action Camera battery.. Gone are the days that a battery only last about an hour in an Action Camera.. On 4K 30FPS or lower you can expect to receive 2 hours or more battery life!! 4K 60FPS still offers WELL OVER an hour of battery life
6.) EIS works GREAT on 4K 30FPS or lower.. I however have the gimbal so I really have no need for EIS but it is a nice feature to add-on and have
7.) Gorilla Glass Screen is NICE AND DURABLE!!
8.) USB-C – PERSONALLY I am very happy about this.. So many devices I own are now going to USB-C and the more devices that convert over to it, the fewer chargers I will have to take places.. Plus USB C is MUCH faster
9.) Same EASY TO USE UI as the first 4K Action Camera from YI
Overall: So far the improvements are WELL WORTH THE PRICE for me even if I don’t need to use 4K 60FPS
