I needed an action camera to document DIYP’s trip to Photokina in September. I didn’t really want to have to fork out for a GoPro. It’s just not something I’d use often enough to justify the cost. So, I looked into the cheaper alternatives. This is when I found the Yi HD Action Camera, and some of the side-by-side examples I was seeing with the GoPro Hero3+ Silver just blew me away.
In a world of GoPros and a million cheap competitors, finding the good ones can often be difficult. It doesn’t help that every reviewer out there has a different definition of “good”. So, seeing side-by-side comparisons of footage taken with two cameras at the same time is usually the best way to really see the difference. Even if YouTube’s compression does often destroy what you really want to see.
