So, here’s the dilemma, these are tough times: You love your Samsung Galaxy S8 or iPhone 7 camera, but at times, you’re looking for some bit of action and shooting more adventurously, say as you sky dive, perform stunts on your bike down the mountain, or even go for some underwater videography. The costs of replacing your iPhone screen (or even scratching it) sounds like premeditated murder. On the other hand, you think GoPros are really cool and professional, but we did say something about times being tough the beginning of the post, and also the fact that every Tom, Dick, and Harry now has one.
Well, you could let you indecision ruin all the fun for you as you sink slowly into despair and self-pity wondering why your check can’t get you a GoPro. Or, you could actually check out this awesome, tiny and not to mention dirt cheap action camera.
The YI 88001 Action Camera is a 16MP action camera with inbuilt wireless capabilities (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) to allow you to stream captured content directly to your phone. And as if that’s not enough, the tiny bugger shoots in full 1080p HD as 60 FPS. Oh, and did we mention that it is tiny? Well, here’s a number, the YI 88001 Action Camera enters the featherweight ring at just 2.5 oz. or roughly 71 grams.
The YI 88001 Action Camera is sold alone and comes in three colors i.e. Jet Black, Lime Green, and White. However, it also comprises a bunch of accessories listed alongside it such as a waterproof case and a variety of mounts. You can also purchase a rechargeable battery (2-pack) and a Dual USB Charger for extra juice to ensure you never miss an adventurous moment.
PSST!! The Lime Green edition looks really slick and trendy.
