YI Technology has today launched its new YI 4K Ultra HD action camera that is now avilable throughout the US to purchase for $250, and is available from the likes of Amazon and other online retailers.
The latest addition to the range of YI Technology action cameras is backward compatible with accessories for the first generation, so your waterproof housing and mounts will still function with the new 4K Ultra HD version.
YI Technology has equipped the YI with a 160 degree viewing angle together with connectivity via Bluetooth, a dual microphone as well as support for LDC lens distortion correction.
Other features include the use of Gorilla Glass and a handy 2.19″ sensitive touch screen together with the ability to record at a 16: 9 640 x 360 pixel with 330 PPI resolution. The action camera has been created to automatically change the frame rate based on your lighting conditions allowing it to capture higher quality video footage when in lowlight conditions.
The YI 4K Action Camera is built with Sony’s 12MP IMX377 CMOS image sensor and the latest A9SE75 processor from Ambarella, allowing users to capture and share moments with increased speed and lower power consumption – including 4K30 video recording at 30fps. The built-in Lens Distortion Correction and Electronic Image Stabilization mean videos are clear and natural. And when it’s time to slow the action down, there is a built-in Slow Motion mode, with no need to edit video later.
The YI Technology 4K camera is also equipped with a six-axis gyro electronic image stabilisation technology, and is fitted with a wireless Broadcom BCM43340 dual-band chip that supports both 5GHZ and 2.4GHz wireless connectivity offering a transfer rate of 30Mb per second.
