Xiaomi extends its product portoflio and wants to compete against GoPro with its Yi Sport camera. 1080p video recordings and 60 FPS is only one of its highlights, which makes this camera special. The camera is shipped without the stick! The stick will later be available for purchase optionally.
Fans have been waiting a long time for the Yi Action Cam 2: the surprise hit from China has finally got a successor. The Yi Action Cam 2 was redesigned from scratch and equipped with the latest technical achievements. Users can look forward to 4K shots at 30 frames per second and an ingenious new image stabilizer. But there are some more surprises hidden in the sporty housing of the new Yi Cam.
The heart of the Yi Action Cam 2 is certainly the ingenious Sony IMX377 sensor, which ensures razor-sharp images. Thanks to the fast f/2.8 aperture, you can take pictures not only during the day, but also in the evening hours. An Ambarella A9SE chip is responsible for good image processing. Movies are stored in MP4 format with h264 codec. Videos can be recorded in 4K with a resolution of 3840x2160 with 30 or 25 fps. Besides numerous other recording modes, the Yi Action Cam 2 even manages 120 frames per second for Full-HD recordings. Photos are taken at 12 megapixels. An ARM Cortex A9 processor ticks inside. Xiaomi uses a 3-axis gyroscope to avoid having to post-process the images with a software-based stabilizer. In addition, the Yi Cam 2 has been equipped with an electric image stabilizer. The sound is recorded by two microphones. The user can get an overview of the current recording with the 2.19 inch touchscreen on the back of the Yi Cam. The latter has a resolution of 640x360 pixels and thus manages a pixel density of an ingenious 330 ppi. Those who still don't want to do without the connection between smartphone and Action Cam can connect to the Yi Action Cam 2 via WiFi. Both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks are supported. Xiaomi provides the YiAction Cam 2 with a very large 1,400 mAh battery.
4K recordings are best suited to be displayed and admired on high-resolution screens. In contrast to Full-HD, the user can zoom into the image almost losslessly during post-processing to create varied jump cuts in 1920x1080 output. But even without those, users can still benefit from 4K recordings: dive into an adventurous documentation of your last holiday and impress your friends with impressive snapshots.
In order to be able to mount most of the action cams on a tripod, one first needs a respective adapter, which costs an additional 10 euros. Not so with the Yi Cam 2: on the bottom there is a recess for a 1/4 tripod screw. Herewith, the doors are opened in order to screw the Action Cam for example on timelapse tools as Turns Pro or a DSLR. Thus, the Yi Cam 2 can not only be used for exciting holiday shots, but also as a camera for outtake videos.
Often there is a lot of action on the piste. Even the surfboard guarantees hectic shots. The Yi Action Cam 2 meets all challenges: Thanks to the 3-axis gyroscope, shots retain their grip even in hectic situations. If you do without 4K shots, you can also enjoy the electric image stabilizer in Full-HD mode, which brings a little more calm to the picture. Both together make sure that you don't have to spend a lot of time editing your images, but can directly bring your friends into raptures.
While the first Yi Cam was operated with just two buttons, users can save themselves the trouble of reaching for their smartphone thanks to the 2.16 inch display on the back: keep track of your shots and operate the Yi Cam's settings more comfortably than ever before. Gone are the numerous connections between mobile phone and Yi Cam to change the recording resolution: with two clicks you can reach your destination without draining your Yi Cam's battery with a WLAN connection.
Thanks to the 1,400 mAh battery inside, you can shoot feature-length movies without having to change the battery. Don't worry about when the Yi Cam 2 battery runs out, you can concentrate on shooting. Unlike the latest competing action cams, the Yi Cam 2 still comes with a replaceable battery. With good care, the Yi Cam will be with you for a long time!
As already mentioned the Yi Cam 2 has an Ambarella A9SE chip. So the Yi Action Cam 2 is not only on a stand of the best GoPro ever, but also better than those. In contrast to the market leader, Yi Cam 2 users don't have to do without an LCD screen on the back. This is only used in GoPro with the Silver version, which naturally produces worse pictures than the Black Edition.
Action cameras usually come along with neglected sound. Not so with the Yi Cam 2: Xiaomi uses two microphones inside the Action Cam. This guarantees that you can look forward to the best possible sound for vlogs, short conversation clips or simply a pleasant background noise without the need for a case. On YouTube you can already find first examples for the good sound of the Yi Cam 2.
Depending on the recording modes, the user can quickly reach the limits of his SD card. If you really want to film a lot with your Yi Cam 2, you should go straight for a 128 GB card. The Yi Cam supports a variety of MicroSD cards, so you don't necessarily have to buy a new one. For 4K shots, however, it is recommended to use at least a U3 card to avoid any risk to your recordings.
Beside the already mentioned resolutions, there is even more that can be changed in the settings of the Yi Cam: Users can create photos in burst mode. Here 30 frames per second are taken. Those who like to record sunrises and sunsets will be pleased with the timelapse function for photos and videos. A new feature is the Slow-Motion mode, which allows users to take photos at low speed without having to edit the videos. Those who can't decide between photos and videos will take a picture while recording a video. Experts enjoy precise control over ISO, exposure and white balance..
Already the first Yi Cam could inspire Xiaomi fans worldwide. The Yi Cam 2 is no different: The action camera brings the latest in technology and combines it with a chic design and unobtrusive weight. In spite of its light body, the Yi Action Cam 2 is not an aerial number. The Yi Cam 2 shows how to build 2016 Action Cams. Try it out!
