What customers say about "Video"
Xiaomi YI 4K (DT-46487) Action Camera
  • The quality of the photos and videos are good as 4K.
  • Photos and videos look great when you see them on your PC or cell phone
  • Makes great photos and videos during the day!
  • This is a pretty cool little camera. I'm replacing my lost htc re with it. Pictures and videos look good. The lense and sensor are high quality, just as good as the re.
  • Overall it's video quality is pretty good. Bad audio but I don't use it for audio. The 4k works but I would not use it for moving parts.
Xiaomi YI 4K+ Sports and Action Camera
  • Very nice video quality. Great range of video resolutions.
  • Video quality is very good. I have no complaints about the overall image quality.
  • High quality video with lots of options. The menu is intuitive and easy to navigate. For 4k video you will need to purchase a high quality SD card.
  • The video quality I was getting out of the YI 4K+ was so poor, I became desperate to get rid of it.
  • All of the camera functions seemed to work fine. Battery life was OK. Quite good actually. I had no SD card problems since I bought the best and fastest brand name I could get. But the video quality was always poor. Dark, grainy and oversaturated reds.

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.
Xiaomi YI 4K+ Sports and Action Camera
  • Nice UI for settings (much better than my Hero 4 Silver)
  • Awesome video and stabilization quality. Sound is not the greatest but far better then the Hero 6 in my opinion.
  • The stabilization works great, I tried a chest mount with and without that setting and the difference is pretty amazing.
  • Voice control is very handy and works well.
  • Audio is horrible. It sounds like you are in a cave and what audio is recorded is very tinny. Very little to no bass, even with an external mic.
  • The only thing I wish it had is the one button operation that the Hero 5 and 6 had.
