Forget DSLRs! Have a look at Xiaomi’s Yi Sport Action Camera

Are you tired of carrying a heavy weight DSLR camera with you? Not only the weight, you also have to be extremely cautious about the safety of the camera, especially when you live in Pakistan. Well, there’s good news for all of the people who are looking for a light-weight, high-resolution, and handy camera. Last year Xiaomi, A Chinese electronic company introduced Xiaomi’s Yi sport action camera.

The Features



Xiaomi’s Yi camera comprises of 2 main editions i.e. Standard and Travel. The only difference between these two is the selfie stick or the monopod that comes in the box with Yi camera’s Travel edition. Xiaomi’s Yi camera weighs just 72gm (size: 6 x 2.1 x 4.2 cm / 2.36 x 0.83 x 1.65 inches). 72gm is nothing as compared to those heavy DSLR cameras. The best part is, you don’t have to carry those heavy camera bags everywhere you go.


Have fun, take photos and record videos with this camera. This Yi camera comes up with 16GB storage along with Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0 and 1,010 mAh battery. Not only this, Yi camera features 16MP resolution along with the capability of capturing videos up to 1080@60 fps, 720p@120 fps, and 480p@240 fps.



In Xiaomi’s Yi camera you can also set up a self-timer for 3, 5, 10 or 15 seconds. It also features a snapshot mode which is able to capture 10 seconds of VGA-quality video for quick social sharing on your favorite social website, whether it’s Facebook or Twitter.



An additional feature of Xiaomi’s Yi camera is the Time Lapse of 0,5/1/2/5/10/30/60 sec. You can also have a separate water proof shell for your camera which makes it easy to record your favorite moments even in water.



The appearance

This simple looking camera contains only 3 buttons. The very first button at the top surface of the camera is for the shutter. In front, you have the on/off button which also switches between taking stills or video and finally, at the corner of the camera, you have the Wi-Fi button. Even though this camera looks very simple, it has multiple features which make it a better option as compared to other cameras and it is much cheaper as well. Xiaomi’s Yi camera comes in two colors i.e. White and Jungle.

We have gone through all the best parts of the camera so now here comes the saddest part- this is only available in China. According to the officials in upcoming years it will be available in the USA and most probably after a span of time, we will be able to have this in Pakistan as well. After looking at the specifications I’m really looking forward to pre-order this camera. I mean, c’mon. Who doesn’t want to have a perfectly-sized, handy camera comprising of so many specs at such a low price.
