action cam, but surely doesnt seem water or dust proof. maybe it should be crash cam instead ?
Here's a video comparing the new 4K YI Action Camera with the older YI Action Cam:
yi 4k cam is made by yi tehnology not xiaomi. I don't understand why this confusion and nobody cares.
I contacted some sellers over ebay, reg availability of this in India....
Well, it will be available in June... that means soon, not too late.
Now, my worry is its price....
Samarth N8 808 user, 19 May 2016Yes, but this one will be expensive too, right? For example, Yicamera costs about 6000-8000... moreyeah this is important to consider! I'll wait to see its price here in Singapore first ;)

For example, Yicamera costs about 6000-8000 INR, while this 4K model might be around say, Rs. 16000-20000 by the time it gets here.
This is enough to rival some low end DSLRs, (agreed this Yi4K device is capable, but still.)
So, think about it. You can get about 2-3 Yicameras for just one of this.
Samarth N8 808 user, 14 May 2016Its already on latest firmware. It does 2K for now, although only 1080p60 was promised on launch.I was ordering one when I saw the news about the new one, yi 4k. Luckly I was able to cancel the purchase, I'll wait for the first week of June to get it.
mir, 16 May 2016A lot of people here who mention gopro are the ones who know nothing about action cameras. The... moreMaybe a bit exaggerated, but true. At the best GoPro is comparable with 2013/2014 top smartphones (better than iphone obviously), but majority of Android flagships had comparable or better cameras back then. As of today, GoPro technology is outdated and quality just above average.
Hopefully they at least set the focus on the lens properly for this model.
Anyway, 4K is great, but I think the trend is on 360 degrees now. Still, hopefully Xiaomi make this available worldwide.
A lot of people here who mention gopro are the ones who know nothing about action cameras. The image and video quality of a gopro camera is only ever comparable to what flagship smartphones from 2011 can offer.
Well, i bought the chinese yi version when it was released. It peformes very good but i really wanted a 4K cam. Now it comes up when i waisted my money. I hope this will be better for Â€200,-. I hope they will add a kind of protune software.
there should be many brand that make action cam, so every brand will improve their action cam. especially go pro with it battery life
