YI 4K+ Camera – World’s First Action Cam With 4K at 60fps

CES 2017 came to a close last weekend, but there’s one nifty new gadget we haven’t reported about yet: a new camera billed as the world’s first action cam that can shoot 4K UHD (3840×2160) up to 60fps built by YI Technologies.  It’s called the YI 4K+ and we have the full list of specs below.    Image Credit: YI Technologies  YI Technologies is perhaps best known for their affordable line of action cameras, gimbal and home camera security system, but the company has steadily been branching out, even releasing a mirrorless camera called the YI-M1 for $349.99. That price even includes a 12-40mm lens. However, it is their action camera lineup that has been making impressive strides over the last few years as a budget alternative to GoPro. The second iteration of YI’s action camera, called simply the YI 4K, matched the specs of the GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition at the time it was released in early 2016, but for about half the cost. The company has now announced the YI 4K+, which promises to shoot 4K/60fps (Wide FOV) compared to the GoPro Hero 5 Black that tops out at 4K/30fps. The YI 4K+ will also shoot 1920×1980 up to 120fps, has an in-camera 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer stabilization and it can take RAW stills. Like the GoPro Hero 5 Black,  it can accept voice commands such as “Take Photo”, “Shoot Burst”, “Start and Stop Recording”, and “Turn Off”. Voice commands make a ton of sense in the fast moving world of downhill action sports. Watch the video below for footage samples...
