YI Technology 88012 overview

  • 1Description

Capture high-quality video wherever you go with the YI Technology Action Camera, in black. 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 88012 reviews

    Action Camera (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding product for the price Right out of the box it is obvious that the Xiaomi Yi is a great camera. From the subtle yet firm click of the power button to the solid, sturdy feel of the main body, it is clear that aesthetics and feel was thought about extensively when the camera was designed. On top of that the image quality is supreme. It is sharp, has accurate, vibrant colors and handles lighting transitions and high-contrast situation very well. You can get silky smooth video with 1080p 60p or with an easy WiFi update get even higher definition 2k 30p video. Speaking of WiFi, there is a great phone app that connects to the camera and makes it easy to either change settings or frame a photo or video. Overall I am extremely happy with my purchase and would have to say nothing compares to this camera for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for my plans This camera was bought for my brother who recently found out he has brain cancer. After loading the app on his phone and showing him how to use it, he can easily record different things he is going through and then I can get the footage from the micro SD card. This is durable enough and simple enough for him to carry around and use when he feels like it so I do not need to follow him everywhere with a camera. I have not used it for any high speed action. But for a camera that does not have the extra protective gear, it has been dropped and kicked and is great.

    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 4 out of 5 by from Good image quality, less than perfect interface For the price, it has good image quality. User interface is less than perfect using iPhone. Beep sound is not adequate inside of waterproof housing making it difficult to use even at highest beep setting. For comparison my iPhone 6 takes better video and photos. Price coming at 1/3 of equivalent GoPro. Definitely a choice for none professionals. Need to make sure batteries are US specification rather than International. International batteries are thinner than US. It fits but it can shift to cause lost of power.

    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 Really good for the price Its a good camera for the price. BUT, I had a small problem after the purchase. After the first use Ive notice a kind of soft focus on images, but after a research on google I discovered the solution for the problem.@

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Yi is amazing value, here are some points. - Amazing price for what you get (bought 3 with insurance for the same budget I had for 1 gopro)- Quite resilient to impacts, even without any additional case.- I like the bright green colour because It is easy to spot in most terrain when it is dropped or lost.- Battery lasts long enough, and charges quickly enough.- Battery cover secures in place quite well. USB/Video Out/SD card slot cover secures well.- Flat and slightly rigid surfaces allow for easy securing.- Plenty of community support for firmware scripts and 3d printed accessories.- Default focus on some Yis is too short (designed for selfies?, etc.) but it can be adjusted manually (be warned, opening case may void warranty).- Default video capture settings are OK, but don't do the hardware justice. Luckily you can use a script to give up to 1080p60 at 35mbps using a super wide view (very crisp, looks like gopro).- Microphone seems to produce noise at peak volumes, not sure if this can be adjusted.- If you are looking for action cams on a budget, you CANNOT beat the Yi.- Shipping was fast, as always (Thanks, B&H).
