Highly Advanced Technologies

Electronic Image Stabilization
Built-in 3 axis gyroscope and 3 axis accelerometer. Uses a cross-border compensation algorithm to compensate the motion change to produce stable video quality
Resolutions supported:2.5K/30FPS, 1440P/60FPS, 1080P/60FPS, 1080S/60FPS, 960FPS/60FPS, 720S/60FPS
Auto Low Light
With a normal camera, the user must manually adjust the parameters according to different light conditions. YI 4K Action Camera makes it easy for you, it senses the change of the light condition with CMOS, and ISP processor will adjust the frame rate and parameters automatically and to produce the highest image quality at low light.
Lens Distortion Correction
100% of the wide-angle lens distortion correction

Self-defined IQ parameters for demanding customers

YI 4K Action Camera has multiple high-level settings such as shutter at an exposure time of 30 seconds; Exposure Value compensation setting (EV), Setting of level of sensitivity (ISO); Metering Mode; White Balance (WB); etc. Together with the choice of 9 shooting modes, you can make impressive work like a professional photographer.
WB (White Balance)
Users can adjust the white balance settings to change the overall color of the video or photo.
White Balance Setting Recommended Lighting Conditions
Auto (Default)
Automatically adjusts the white balance via environment, without human intervention.
The original color
3000K, tungsten or sunrise / sunset lighting conditions
5500K, cool fluorescent, average daylight conditions
6500K, cloudy environmental conditions
ISO (Level of sensitivity)
Change the camera photosensitivity in low light environmental conditions to enhance the brightness for the video or photo. In low light environmental conditions, the higher the ISO value, the brightness the captured video or photo, the greater the signal noise, grainy strong, and vice-versa.
ISO for Video Resulting Video Quality
Auto (Default)
Automatically adjusts the sensitivity according to the environmental conditions
Darker video in low light, minimum image noise
Moderately bright video in low light, moderate image noise
Brighter video in low light, highest image noise
ISO for Photo Resulting Photo Quality
Auto (Default)
Automatically adjusts the sensitivity according to the environmental conditions
Bright photo in outdoor daylight, minimal image noise
Bright photo in indoor lighting, marginal image noise
Darker photo in low light, moderate image noise
Darker photo in very low light, increased image noise
EV (Exposure Value compensation)
It influences the brightness of the video or photo. When shooting in a contrasting light environmental conditions, you can adjust this parameter to control the brightness of the video or photo. Value adjustment will increase the brightness of the video or photo based on the default basis.
-2.0, -1.5, -1.0, -0.5, 0(Default), +0.5, +1.0, +1.5, +2.0
Metering Mode
Divided into two metering modes: spot and center.
Video Quality
Divided into high, medium and low grades.


High-density lithium polymer battery, battery specification is 3.85V, 1400/1430mAH(min/typ), 5.39/5.51Wh(min/typ), 8 hours standby. The sensor and ISP sleep in the low-power mode, a significant reduction in power consumption, up to 8 hours of standby time. The camera is ready to shoot video or photo in just 3 seconds from the off mode. The customized power management chip from Texas Instruments is designed to create minimum heat at working condition and enables quick radiation of heat. Continue recording for 110 min, but the camera will not overheat. Input Current: 1A Input Voltage: 5V.
