Comments on quality against the competition including gopros and such like?
So many Yi posts lately
Not sure about this one, but the higher spec cameras from Yi perform really well. Really went the Yi 4k+ 60fps to go down, its been at £309 since i remember. Seen the 30fps go down on a lightning deal a few days ago.

I'd say between the GoPro 6 and Yi 4k+, they are almost identical. I'd say Yi has better colours in daytime, go pro performs better in low light and has better microphone quality. But for the 100 quid less, its a no brainer really.

Extremely similar the Hero 6 and 4K+ however the GoPro has GPS unique to it and the Yi has live streaming unique to it.

The GoPro is also waterproof touchscreen usable whereas the Yi is not once the case is on which is a bit of a disappointment.

Amazon had it on lighting deal today for approx £195 I think.

Just got back from Philippines where I've took one of these cameras. As I do take multiple cameras with me for trips, reducing the size, number of accessories or weight is always a key selling point to me. I do own a from gopro 3 silver up to sony a7r2 range. Biggest pro as a budget action cam is the touch screen and battery life. Close to 2 hour recording time is very impressive, my gopro probably could to 45-60mins with a single battery. Picture and video quality is much better, however to my taste slightly yellow tinted ( can be easily corrected ). Cons : difficult to get extra battery for it, and no easy way to change settings between modes once it's in the waterproof case. Big plus for me, can take pictures, timelapse, videos while charging ( did a long timelapse from sunrise until sunset )
Oh crap, 4K for £62 and it has a build-in screen as well? Shut up and take my money!

Makes the £20 1080p YI Action Cam last year almost look overpriced.

I seriously need to block this website on my broadband router.

These have some great sample videos on YouTube. Tempted!!!
Argh I paid 40 from CEX for the updates original (just before the 20 quid offer on Amazon...)

Great price! Voted hot. Just can't justify replacing something I literally just bought...
This is a great price, almost tempted to pick up a second one!
Cons : difficult to get extra battery for it, and no easy way to change settings between modes once it's in the waterproof case.

Can you not adjust the camera settings via the App?
Does this come with a carry case? Also has anybody got any advice on accessories?
I bought this recently and was going to use it occasionally as a dashcam. Turns out the loop recording only works 'per session'. So each time you turn the camera back on you have to manually delete all the seperate files, or it will refuse to record as space is full up from previous loop recordings. So when you have a 64GB card with 100's of 5min files - I don't think anyone in their right mind would manually delete that stuff. There's not even a delete all button! No firmware patch addresses this either. Refunded it after that.. stick to GoPro.

I just put a deal up for the 4k+ not long ago. Here's the Link. The promotion isn't on anymore unfortunately but it was on for at least a week. They still have the gimbal 50% off when you buy the camera at the same time
Am going skiing in March and was looking to get an action cam...this looks good but also considering AKASO EK7000 4K Sport, anyone any had experience to say which is better?

Both have good amazon reviews and similar price. 4K is not a killer feature for me as no way to make use of it so solid 1080p performance is fine.

I'm really disappointed i missed that ! I only saw the 30fps version go down Now im gonna be beating myself up for this, hopefully it'll be on sale too. Thing is I always check on Amazon and i never saw the price drop, is there special discount applied on checkout or something for lightning deals? Will have to start searching HUKD for it instead.

It wasn't a lightning deal that I posted. You just had to click on promotions under the price and there was £120 off voucher. They also had 50% off the gimbal and 75% off a carry case.
I own this camera. My two downsides to it:

- It does not currently support 180 degree image rotation (might come in future firmware update). This is an issue as it is not easy to mount it on a windscreen the right way up.
- The form factor of the latest Yi cameras (including this one) is slightly bigger (wider) than the norm for Chinese action cams. This means that certain accessories won't fit the Yi. (For example, a mounting frame for use with a car windscreen suction cup.)

Quality of video is excellent though and the touch screen user interface is great.

Gone up in price now.

I'd go with the yi. To start with the wonnie, at one point it says 2 x 1050mah batteries but when it says what will be included in delivery it says 1 x 900mah battery. No touchscreen on the wonnie, battery is unlikely to last as long. Yi is a more well known brand, using better parts etc.

Also the apps for the cheap action cameras are usually useless. I have 2 different brands (not the cheapest brands either) and they just won't connect to the phone. The yi app is great, connects without any problems.

The yi will also record at a higher FPS and has built in slow motion options.

To be honest most them cheap cameras are the same spec. I really would recommend a yi camera, especially when they're on offer.
£109 now less the £38 discount so its £71.99 on Sunday
Bought one then sent it back after a few days.

If youre buying this for cycling dont bother unless youre mounting it on a helmet or 'upright' on handlebars because you cant invert the recording when the camera is mounted upside down on a Garmin/GoPro out-in-front mount like this one.

I spent a better part of an evening trying to find an option in their android app which is already pretty bare when it comes to options but couldn't find anything.

Fired a query at their customer support team and they were equally as woeful. First response was directing me to an option in the android app that didn't exist. A day later they responded again, and told me my firmware was out of date and to update it. I had already check their website for firmware updates and it appeared that my camera was running a firmware that was more updated than the one listed on their website. The link the customer service rep sent me was for the first generation of Yi cameras.

I read on the Yi forums that the cameras dont support the feature of being inverted or flipped/rotated when it came to recording upside down and they would add the feature at a later date depending on customer feedback "Watch this space"

Boxed it up and sent it back to Amazon today. Really disppointed

I should have read the comments before posting myself but yeah, I share your pain about the 180 degree rotation. I only want to use this camera on my bike so its a waste of time for me to keep it around waiting for them to give us a firmware update to change this. Their first generation Yi cameras eventually got this feature so i dont know why they decided to leave it out with the 4K cameras.

Its supposed to be an Action Camera. what good is it when you cant record properly when you mount it in weird positions??
I carry on plodding on with my SJCam M10+ which im beginning to loathe as the battery life isnt very long at all and the battery compartment is fiddly when it comes to changing batteries.
many things including 180 degree rotation, raw files can be changed with an app called "Yi Pro", cost an extra £2.50 from play store

I actually wasted money on this. Sadly even though the display is rotated 180. the actual footage of it is still recorded as upside down
