Yi 4k+ Action Camera Launched (Go Pro Killer) - 4K at 60FPS - £248 aliexpress / yi Official Store

Found 28th Mar 2017
Yi just announced a few hours ago that this is available for purchase.

This is the world's first 4K action camera that can deliver 60 frames per second.

It's selling for $339.98 on their website at store.yitechnology.com/col…ase with free shipping.

Bizarrely, if you order through AliExpress, it only costs $311.19 with free shipping. You get added protection buying through AliExpress and if you pay an extra $12 or so to use PayPal you will get even more protection.

Full info about the camera at yitechnology.com/yi-…era

Ahhh I didn't see that. I had been checking the website most days and it was only announced five hours ago.

Yes you probably will have to pay import tax. It depends though. Sometimes AliExpress sellers will mark items as something else to help you avoid this.
Don't waste your time on crap Chinese imports. Wasted £60 on something similar which lasted five minutes.
GoPro Killer?? Okay...

Don't think that's what this is.... Please at least do some research before commenting.... This is probably the best small form factor action camera available today regardless of price.

This isn't one of those cheap action cameras you see on eBay. The Yi and Yi 4K were very popular. They all got very good reviews.

Next to the GoPro Hero 5, the Yi 4K did very well and cost half the price. The touchscreen was better and it handled certain filming situations better. The GoPro Hero 5 is still better than the 4K, but it cost double so that is to be expected.

The new 4K+ adds lots of new features including external mic support, improved built-in mic, and 60FPS 4K recording.

Reviews of the 4K+ have been very positive so far.
