  • Great camera, am glad I went with a model with the display screen on the back.
  • The new go pro has added great features such as the touch screen and voice.
  • The thought screen is really nice but I think that the menus are sometimes a little tough to navigate because it's such a small screen, I don't really let that bother me because it's so simple to connect tablet or phone to it navigating the menus on the mobile is very fast and easy to change.

What customers say about "Features"
Xiaomi YI 4K (DT-46487) Action Camera
  • Wifi connected. It works fantastically! I can use phone not only control the camera, but also download(or delete)all the pictures and videos.
  • Compatible other brand waterproof case and accessories (needs extra purchase).
  • Wide-angle lens can take more vision view. I could use it as a car recorded camera(use a car plug and charging cable).
  • The main problem is the audio and video don't match which just causes a headache if you need the audio. The mic isn't that great either.
  • Accessories are fairly hard to find and aren't of good quality.
GoPro Hero5 Black Action Camera
  • Great for vacations and it comes water resistant now. I've been using it in for snowboarding lately and the picture quality comes out great.
  • Durable easy to operate and awesome picture...great for family its small design and water resistance.
  • Much better than the previous model. Water resistant without a case to a certain depth.
  • Very user friendly and the voice control features is awesome!
  • Great Action camera, love the GPS setup and all the software that can be used with it.
  • In order to use the app, it appears I must use my data as connecting the GoPro unit disconnects the wi-fi.
  • Good product. Be careful when purchasing the SD card. The camera does not support all types and some SD cards will say they work with GoPro cameras but they do not.
