Yi makes your favorite budget action cam, and right now its 4K sibling is just $170 with the code YISPROFF. I got a chance to test this guy out on the rapids of the Hudson River and let me tell you, it’s a lot of bang for its buck. So if you’ve got champagne taste but a beer budget, this is the action cam for you.
It’s a little bit larger in size than the GoProHero Black, but by only a little more than half an inch. It can shoot that coveted 4k at 30fps or 720p at 240fps, which is kind of astounding for an under-$300 cam (even if it can’t shoot 1080p at 120fps like the Hero4 Black). Plus, the listed battery life on the Yi is 2 hours, compared to the 1.5 hours on the GoPro.
