[Amazon.ca] Yi Action Cameras (Lite $70 / 4K $120)

Lite: https://www.amazon.ca/YI-150%C2%B0Wide- ... B075JFSZM9
4K: https://www.amazon.ca/YI-Action-Sports- ... B01FU6KDEG
A thorough review on the Lite model: https://www.tomsguide.com/us/yi-lite-sp ... -5546.html

Both are at the lowest price according to 3 camel.
I bought this since I have good experience with their indoor security camera and dash cam.

I used the lite camera on a Cuba trip. It's very good just keep in mind action cameras by nature have to be pretty close to the subject(s).

I'm very tempted to upgrade to the 4K.

Pretty tempted by the Lite Version. Any feedback on it ?

70 $ with a case seems pretty cheap

i would say its a no brainer but recently i bought a 75$ jeemak action camera and it was horrible. So i dunno if this one would be like that, they have identical specs

Picked one up, thanks OP! Heading to Mexico next month and was looking at an action cam for the water excursions. Was tempted by the GoPro 7 Atmosphere deal but at literally 1/6th the price, this was the better pickup even factoring in resale value afterwards. Definitely don't expect it to be GP 7 quality, but online reviews seems to be rock solid for it. For anyone looking to pick up some cheap accessories, the 39pc 3rd party kit has a $3 coupon going on right now: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00ZEK ... UTF8&psc=1 Not bad for $103 all in.

Is the waterproof case from the lite version compatible with the 4k version? Because the separate case for 4k costs almost as much as the lite camera + case

Yi cams are awesome. We have a 4K +. Very cool.. 4K at 60p.

Caution, at the higher frame rates, resolution, these (like all action cams/go pros) eat batts for breakfast. We're talking under an hour of recording.

Careful with the screws that come with this kit. Mine started rusting after one use.

Thanks for that info. I was thinking of picking one up for the scuba diving. I just read the video in low light environment is worst than the original Yi. I'll pass and wait for something better or spend more on a better quality one.
