Yi Lite is Yi Technology’s budget-friendly but powerful action camera.
This action cam offers 4k definition at 20f frames per second video shooting. It uses a SONY IMX206 image sensor which allows it to shoot at 16 megapixels.
The Yi Lite is equipped with a 150° wide-angle f/2.8 lens, allowing you to capture wider and shoot even in low light conditions. Easy navigation and robust screen are offered with its 2” Gorilla Glass LCD touchscreen. The interface is very user-friendly, too.
Shooting non-stop in HD without overheating is made possible because of the underlying Hisilicon Hi3556 chipset which stays cool even in warm condition — a really perfect feature, considering the Philippines is a tropical country.
It offers EIS or Electronic Image Stabilization which, by its name, electronically stabilizes the video without the need of a gimbal or other stabilizing gears. The EIS feature is available on 1080p 60fps and 720p 60fps, but is unavailable on the 4k 20fps and the 720p 120fps. A 360p at 240 frames per second can be used only in the slow motion shooting mode.
