Xiaomi Yi is a $64 alternative to GoPro

Xiaomi Yi

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has just introduced the ¥399 ($64) Yi Action Camera, which looks like an interesting budget version of the $130 GoPro HERO, but with better specs. The Yi camera captures 1080p video at 60 fps and takes 16-megapixel photos with an f/2.8 aperture lens thanks to a Sony Exmor sensor. It features slow motion and adjustable time-lapse shooting modes, is waterproof down to 40m and includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for pairing with your smartphone to transfer media. Unfortunately, you’re only going to be able to get one in China right now.
