The Yi Action Camera 2 from Xiaomi is, quite frankly, the only Chinese action cam that has impressed me so far.

Clickable =/= clickbait.

"Clickbait" implies that the title is not accurate. The title here is accurate, it's just a lot more interesting than "Product X Review."

Okay, let me change that. 

 

 

Can you stop with the Buzzfeed titles?

 

 

You can do "Product X Review - BUZZFEED TITLE OMG" much better for people who google for results or just browse the channel.

Would be great, if you could keep the catching title in the first days when the most of the traffic comes and then add the name of the product and the brand, to make it easily searchable.

It was a great review, GoPro really needs a noticeable competition. It´s also just a cheap camera from China, but extremely hyped up and while there have been better alternatives have been around for a long time, they get easily lost in the sea of low quality rip-offs.

About time other companies really start to take market share from Go Pro. They really have not been putting out any new products, and you cannot sit like that forever.

I planed to buy YI 1, but when I saw preorder YI 2 on gearbest, I was blown away. Still, little pricey for preorder but, when it comes out, and drops price for 3-6 months, this will be BestBuy killer.

Are you planning to release open doors for waterproof case that let more sound in?

Are you planning on releasing a water-resistant case that allows the camera to be charged while in the case?

@LinusTech Good review, but your first part, hating on other cheap cameras is a little unfounded, the first gen Yi was cheap and used a decent Sony sensor and records up to 2k at 35mbps, also the SJCAM 4000/5000 use Sony sensors and decent processors inside also, Dizzne P2 and others similar are actually pretty nice cameras for very little money

Also no mention or demo of some of the cameras features either like high framerate 120fps, burst, timelapse etc or mention of distortion correction 

Also since it has a tripod thread- you can use a gopro tripod mount to mount the camera to any go pro accessory outside of the waterproof case 

also there are external chargers for the camera batteries already available,

looks good my hero 3 black can do 4k at 15fps but i mainly use 1080 30 or 1080 60fps. this seems like a decent upgrade for the money.

I love my Yi 1st gen, I was going to review it on my own channel but it kind of passed me by :D took it snowboarding in Bulgaria and it did a great job

 

Are you planning any open cases like the aluminium ones that are available for the current Yi?

Also what bitrate is the 4k 30fps?

 

Any plans to introduce a flat profile for colour grading?

Yep that might be what we do. We'll see!! It all depends on how YouTube handles SEO for titles that change (does that burn the traffic we've seen up until that point? Will that actually increase our search ranking or does it mean nothing since we don't have many views with that title? All questions I need answers to :) haha)

At this point, probably not. That would mean changing our entire ecosystem over to Mac.
