  1. GoPro was the 1st large company w/active cameras. Yi Action looks a little “toyish” where GoPro is on par w/current cell phone & computer technology. I’m sure GoPro is waiting for the perfect timing to STOMP OUT these itzy bitzy competitors, however, if GoPro does not adapt, they will eventually be inquired by a larger firm w/better direction. W/that said, I still have faith in the new GoPro upper management -Homanator

    1. For sure the Yi camera looks a little ‘toyish’ – and with such a low price it might seems to good to be true. We can’t wait to test it to figure out if it will be a real threat for GoPro or not!

      1. These cameras and others are already in wide circulation in asia … costing 2000 Thai baht, or around $60 US they’re excellent.

  2. One huge plus is that it’s cheaper, so you’d be more willing to take greater risks with it than a very expensive GoPro. Think I might get one.
