**New GoPro HERO 5 Comparison vs YI 4K:

The YI 2 4K is a fantastic action camera for a great price! I’ve been using GoPro’s for many years, and though they’ve created a great product and pushed the envelope for development, they’ve definitely had their recent problems, a couple including an expensive price point, and no built-in screen for it’s highest-end model, the Hero 4 Black. (Kinda absurd IMHO.)
The YI 2 has “borrowed” a lot from the GoPro playbook, yet improved on it, created a BETTER product, AND it’s MUCH CHEAPER in price!

Here are some of the main specs of the YI 2:
-155 degree wide angle, f/2.8 lens
-1400mAh battery, (~2hr recording time at 4K 30fps), (8hrs standby)
-2.19 inch screen, 16:9 ratio, 330PPI
-Dual-band WiFi
-Dual Microphone
-Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS), 6-axis

Watch the video for my full review – side by side comparison shots to the GoPro start at: 1:34 (In my opinion, I’d say the YI 2 footage looks just as good, or slightly better (slightly sharper) than the GoPro. I do miss Protune, but maybe we’ll see that with a future update.)

Other negatives or wish list items I forgot to mention:
-I’d love to see a cutout backdoor add on for the housing case, thus I can use the touch screen controls when the case is on (if I’m not going underwater with it of course)
-The Flat color profile seems a little off, maybe it’s the White Balance or other settings, but I’d like to see this improved with future firmware updates
-There is no “digital crop-in” or “Narrow FOV” modes – not a big deal, I never used those modes anyway, but just FYI
-The microSD card slot is under the battery compartment door, thus not easily accessible if it’s mounted on a tripod

In conclusion, I really like the YI 2 action cam, and IMO it’s the new best action camera on the market, for now! (Especially for the price!)
I’m looking forward to see what GoPro has planned for it’s next Hero model, and we’ll see if it can reign again…
