Ac­tion Chal­lenger

DA MAN - - Gadgets -

The ac­tion cam—aka POV cam—seg­ment has long been dom­i­nated by a sin­gle brand. Now, a con­tender that might re­ally shake things up has ar­rived. Yi, which has the back­ing of Xiaomi, has re­leased the Yi 4K Ac­tion Cam­era and it’s proven to be quite a ri­val for the in­cum­bent king of ac­tion cams. This small cam­era can record ul­tra-high-def­i­ni­tion 4K videos at 30fps and 1080p at 120fps. It can also take 12-megapixel still shots. To be fair, the Yi 4K does leave out some fea­tures that many have come to ex­pect from gad­gets like this, like GPS, voice con­trol and auto up­load­ing. That be­ing said, the re­spon­sive touch­screen, big bat­tery and fast trans­fer speeds more than make up for those short­com­ings. All in all, the Yi 4K Ac­tion Cam­era is a very vi­able op­tion for ad­ven­tur­ers look­ing to record their lat­est ex­treme ex­ploits.
