Seattle, WA—YI Technology released its YI 4K+ action camera, which will be initially available on YITechnology.com, Amazon.com and Aliexpress.com. The company is marketing the YI 4K+ as the first action camera to capture 4K video at 60 frames per second (fps).
“Following the success of our YI 4K action camera and the overwhelmingly positive feedback and enthusiasm for the 4K+ at CES 2017, we are proud to release what we believe to be the world’s best action camera,” said Sean Da, CEO of YI Technology. “As always, we have listened to all the feedback from our customers, both professional and consumer, to offer the most advanced image quality settings for pros, while maintaining a simple and intuitive interface .”
Based on the previous YI 4K cam, the new 4K+ action camera features upgrades. In addition to doubling the frame rate of its predecessor, the YI 4K+ is the first camera to use an Ambarella H2 SoC processor. The processor provides a maximum bit rate of 120 Mbps. It also permits the camera to consume extremely low power to maintain battery life (approximately 71 minutes for 4K 60-fps video). In addition, the camera employs electronic image stabilization support for 4K/30-fps video and outdoor audio.
YI 4K+ Accessories
The YI 4K+ action camera is backward compatible with all of the current YI 4K accessories. These include a waterproof housing and handheld gimbal as well as the newest model, the YI 2 handheld gimbal. The camera comes with a fully reversible USB Type-C connector for faster data transfer as well as external microphone support. The YI 4K+ sells for $339.98 with its waterproof case.
