YI Technology 88001 overview

  • 1Description

Capture high-quality video wherever you go with the YI Technology Action Camera, in white. Featuring a backside-illuminated Sony Exmor R CMOS sensor, the camera records up to 1080p video at 60 fps and 720p video at 120 fps to microSD memory cards. It is equipped with an ultra-wide lens that provides a 155° angle of view to capture nearly everything in front of it. A single LED-backlit button on the front of the camera activates recording, making the camera easy to use. You can also use the camera's built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity to pair it with your smartphone for remote control using the free Yi Camera app. Additionally, the app enables you to sync files to your phone, cut clips together, apply filters, chose a soundtrack, and then share videos on your favorite social networks.

Compact in size and weighing only 2.5 ounces, the Action Camera can accompany you on any journey; from vacation travels to everyday excursions around town. Despite its weight, the camera is reasonably durable thanks to its ABS polycarbonate body. A variety of optional mounting options are available, including options for wearing the camera on your wrist, attaching it to a helmet or bike, or even strapping to your pet.

    YI Technology 88001 reviews

    Action Camera (White) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yi Action Camera This is a great competitor to the GoPro action camera. It's much smaller than it looks and very versatile. There are easy to use scripts and other hacks you can find online to modifly what the camera can do. The smartphone app allows you to use your phone as a remote viewer, which is very handy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gopro Killer, Nikon Keymission Killer I am very impressed with the YI Action Cam. The absence of screen in my view is a plus when you consider the extended battery life and ease of using a smartphone to manage the camera. I have plugged in an external USB battery and recorded hours long elapsed time captures. I will soon be added a more rugged housing and protection for the lens which some say is prone to being easily scratched. Having bought the Nikon Keymission 170 my comparison is the YI is a great value. The Keymission requires a new battery every hour, the video while good, is recorded in a very wide panoramic aspect. The WIFI connection is problematic, the app is very limited and cumbersome to operate. For the price I could have bought 5 YIs for the cost of one Nikon Keymission 170. Yi Action Camera is a good deal lots of bang for the buck.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelente desempe�o Soy un usuario de la marca XIAOMI en diferentes dispositivos, aunque nunca hab�a usado c�maras de esta marca, la c�mara Yi me sorprendi� por su desempe�o y calidad. Excelente construcci�n, muy buena cadlida de imagen y la app para controlarla es muy intuitiva y completa, nada que envidiar a la Go Pro.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pro features and quality video at a great value Bought this for use on an FPV/AP quadcopter (drone) and it is almost perfect. The video quality is on par with the basic gopro models, and this is a value purchase at under $. Deducted 1 star due to the lens being out of focus slightly, which affected my ability to use it for FPV on my drone. However, this issue was easily fixed by removing the front plate and some hot glue, and turning the lens approximately 1/8th of a turn clockwise. A little hotglue back on the lens and it is now perfect. If you have a drone and want a cheaper gopro alternative, pick up one of these. It is not an exact match, so your gimbal may require some modifications (mine needed some extra padding), but otherwise you can't beat so many features at such a great price. B&H had fast shipping, and the white model looks really nice on my white drone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had issue but B&H did a great job resolving it! Great camera but my first one I received had an issue! It would not detect the SD card properly tried several SD cards all had the same issue. Camera would not even boot if SD card was inserted before power up! Contacted B&H photo and they exchanged the unit very quickly and the new one works great!! It is a awesome action camera!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from To Action Cam Went from a GoPro 3+ to the $99 Yi Action cam. This is at least as good, if not better. Need to use the phone app to change settings beyond switching between photo and video, but besides that, this thing is an incredible value. Very happy with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with this! I'm very happy with this action camera. It's MUCH better than my SJ-5000. Low light is decent for an action camera. To my surprise, this camera also does 2K at 30 fps. App works great on my phone and tablet. I will be purchasing more in the future.
