While today the news is mostly about the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge and HTC ONE M9, Xiaomi just launched another potential Hotseller – The Xiaomi Mi Pro Camera. Xiaomi officially launched their XIaomi Mi Pro Camera for just 399 Yuan, that is 64USD. That is slightly more then we reported initially about the Xiaomi Mi Pro Camera, but still much cheaper then the Go Pro Hero.
As we reported earlier Xiaomi finally launched their Xiaomi Mi Pro Camera and that much cheaper then the Go Pro Camera. The Yi Action Camera as is the official name of Xiaomi’s first Camera can record 1080p videos an sports a 16MP Camera with Sony’s high quality Exmor R BSI CMOS image sensor. That is even better then the Go Pro Camera which comes with a 5MP Camera and 30fp in Full HD or 60fp in HD. That of course is just on paper and we need to see the real world experience.
The Xiaomi Mi Pro Camera is able to beat the Go Pro Hero as well in the internal memory department and weight. The Xiaomi Mi Pro Camera comes with 64GB (double of the Go Pro) and just weights 72g, compared to the 111gramm of the Go Pro. As well it has a larger battery. With the Yi Action Camera you can go underwater up to 40 meters, which might be one of the most important features for many of you, bringing it to your holidays.
For this price of course there are some difference to the Go Pro Hero. The Xiaomi Mi Pro Camera comes without casing or any notable accessoires, thats a main difference to the Go Pro. You Are able to buy a “Travel Edition” of the XIaomi Yi Action Camera though. The “Travel Edition” will come with a Selfie Stick Mount, which will be probably very famous here in Asia.
Xiaomi Mi Pro on your Cat 😉
Apart from that it looks like you can really stick the new Xiaomi Mi Pro Camera to everything – even a cat. While this is funny it means that you can use the Xiaomi Yi Action Camera with your Motobike, Surfing Snowboarding – really everywhere you go. We only hope Xiaomi will launch a protective case for the camera. Especially for Action Sports this would be useful. You can control the Xiaomi Yi Action Camera via an Xiaomi Android App, similiar to the Air Purifier and other Xiaomi products.
