this camera literally came out 6 months ago for $200 less

it's called the Yi 4K+

don't tell me that GoPro has the better accessories support because a 99-cent adapter equalizes that.

We come here looking for deals. We use the savings on the things we buy to justify buying more things, thus filling our homes with tons of unnecessary consumer products. Such is the key to happiness.

they still need to up their game and offer a model with OIS like the Sony does.

Electronic stabilization still can't compensate for a lot of vibration types that blur footage.

Unless you make your living shoot action footage for a living.....I just can't see the justification to pay this much for an action cam. I spent $400 for my Sony X3000 and it does great for the vacation and some action footage I've shot, and even then I think I overspent a little considering other cheaper alternatives, but the OIS is what makes it worth the extra cost. With an adapter I use a lot of go pro mounts successfully too
Honey, I can't go to bed yet. Somebody is wrong on the Internet!

Current best deal is The Source with PSP brings it down to $617.49 and if you have an old $25 email coupon, brings it to $669.51, with 1% cash back from ebates, so about $660.

Otherwise, you can wait for 15% off Sport Chek gift card discounts again and use 10% off email sign up (assuming it works with GoPros) and it comes to $563.54 ($650 in gift cards at 15% off with a $11.03 difference left over). If you're lucky, you can get it during the F&F with the 25% off, brings it to a total of $468.37 which would be super ideal.

This is compared to a full price of $734.49.

Why old $25 coupon? Something wrong with the new ones?

They don’t stack with the PSP discount, it’s either or.

Doubt it, the 6 starts at a much higher price of $650 to begin with leaving the 5 at the regular ~$550 mark.

Man, these guys make slick edited videos with some of the coolest scenes. I see they're showcasing 4K 60fps by all the cleaner slowed footage. Is there any de-fishing?

No longer has an Ambarella sensor, so they are now different.
