Read a few of these article from photography sites and most of them failed to mention that a good part of the reason for the fall of GoPro came directly from one competitor - YI line of action camera. Yi was able to catch up with simialr spec and output as the GoPro equivalent but cost less and Xiaomi was a major distributor of those YI camera.

It would be interesting to see what Xiaomi would do with YI and GoPro.
The Devil made me buy it - RFD. :twisted:

That's what happens when you decide that your brand is so popular that you will charge a crap ton extra just for your name.

I knew someone that had a GoPro and although it's cool how small they are, I wasn't overly impressed to be honest, all the demos you see in stores are nice and all but those are under perfect conditions for those cameras (and they boost up the colours like stores do on tv displays to make them stand out more).
