    Official!

    YI Technology, the leading, international provider of advanced, intelligent imaging technologies, today announced plans to unveil the YI 4K+ at CES 2017, the first action camera to capture 4K photos and videos at 60 frames per second (fps). The company also plans to fly the YI Erida drone, the world’s fastest tricopter, for the first time live in the U.S.

    “2016 has been a whirlwind of product launches including several new action and home security cameras, the YI Erida drone, our first mirrorless camera the YI M1, as well as an exciting partnership with Google to develop a virtual reality camera rig,” said Sean Da, CEO of YI Technology. “CES 2017 is an important milestone for us as we look to demonstrate our full product line and reveal novelty solutions. As a challenger brand in the changing imaging technology market, we are constantly looking for ways to push the boundaries and set new standards for the global industry.”

    Based on the award winning YI 4K, the YI 4K+ is the third action camera in YI’s successful line of high quality and affordable solutions. The faster frame rate of 60fps is double that of competitor’s products and allows for more realistic, high quality video content.

    YI will demonstrate its full line of connected imaging technology solutions, including the YI Erida drone, YI 4K+ Action Camera, home security cameras, dash camera, and the professional grade mirrorless camera, the YI M1, at two different locations during CES 2017:

    Pepcom’s Digital Experience!: Wednesday, January 4, 7pm – 10:30pm PT, The Mirage Hotel The Sands, Tech West: January 5-8, Booth #46324

    Not so good news is that they want to hike price to almost $350.

  • This looks like more bad news for GoPro. I wonder how warm it gets running 4k 60 inside a waterproof housing? I want one!

  • @kendalloz

    Must be cool, as it is 14nm highly integrated chip.

  • 4K60p is great. As always, however, no stabilization, not even digital, at that resolution and frame rate.

    Get the small gimbal finally :-)

  • Bitrate info still not available - upto 135 mbps on which mode ?

  • @zcream

    120Mbit in 4K 60fps mode.

    All else will come with reviews soon.

  • Even though the Ambarella H2 is capable of H.265 encoding at 2160p60, Yi Technology seems to be sticking with H.264 encoding only, at least judging from the specs released so far.

    Does the camera have an HDMI port or just USB Type C?

  • @davedv

    Check photos on their site ( link at first post), as I remember it has both.

  • In the photos on their website, all of the ports seem to be covered up. But I did manage to find this photo elsewhere, which makes it seem likely there's no HDMI port, only USB-C.

    A bit disappointing, but not too surprising, as the earlier Yi 4K Action Camera which had a similar design, also lacked an HDMI port.
