The new Underwater case for YI 4K Action Camera is 40m waterproof and IP68 waterproof grade. German Schott glass is used in the Waterproof Case’S lens, 98.5% on light transmittance delivers high definition images above and below water. A GoPro mount – 1/4″ tripod mount adapter comes with the case, so you can use it with almost all GoPro mounts and standard tripod mounts.

YI Handheld Gimbal

YI Handheld Gimbal

 

YI introduced its YI Handheld gimbal which is compatible with YI 4K Action Camera as well as YI Action Camera. Image stabilization is not available in 4k for most cameras, as it is an electronic stabilization which requires sensor space, but in 4K all of that is used. Anyway the results of a gimbal are better than electronic image stabilization anyway. The bottom features a standard 1/4″ tripod thread, so you can attach it to the monopod to use it handheld.

New YI 4K Action Camera accessories are the leather cases. They are available in black and white and made out of selected European PU leather for protection of the camera. They come with an UV Filter for protection of the lens. The ultra thin UV lens frame processed by seamless aluminum alloy material prevents glare for optimal viewing.

3rd Party




 

Plastic Frame (3rd Party)

I try to avoid the underwater case if not necessary and therefore like the frame as it provides GoPro Mount. Better would be an aluminum frame, which I have for my YI Action Camera, as it provides more protection. Hope this item will also be available soon!

Aluminum Case (3rd Party)

Even better than a plastic frame, is an aluminum frame or case. It is very durable and has a strong protection for the camera. I always use it when I d0n’t have the camera in my underwater case.

Silicone Case (3rd Party)

Similar as offered for YI Action Camera 1, there is also a 3rd party YI 4K Action Camera silicone case. I try to avoid the underwater case if it is not necessary and like the silicone case which gives a a bit of protection for the camera.

Recently also a lot of sets were released. If you are getting started, and the this is you first Action Camera, this might be a good idea, to get the basic mounts set.

Handlebar Mount

You’ve probably seen one of my comparison videos which I usually record on my bike. I also like aluminum accessories as they last longer than their plastic counterparts. I was surprised that the original YI handlebar mount has a 360° rotate-able head, the aluminum 3rd party products don’t have that feature, so that’s a big plus for the original YI accessory.

Hand Mount

I like the hand mount a lot as you place the camera on your wrist and still have your hands free. I use it while swimming or riding a motorcycle. The original Yi hand mount is made from neoprene, so you can use it in the water. The mount can turn 360°, if you buy a third party product, make sure it has the function as well, as mounting is way easier. You can also turn the camera to film your face.

It seems that the existing monopod and remote control are also shipped with YI 4K Action Camera in a traveller pack. Still, an upgraded remote with more features would be nice.

Chest Strap

The chest strap is a great tool to achieve great first person shots, it is not as shaky as the hand mount. The original Yi chest strap is made of neoprene and therefore suitable for watersports usage. There are many 3rd party products available, I personally like the straps from neopine. I also used Chest Strap and Hand mount in my Motorcycle Mount Tutorial.

Head Strap

Also great for first person POV the head mount. Also for the head strap there are 3rd party accessories available. If you want to underline you are using a YI camera, the original mount gives you the opportunity as the straps are covered in YI logos.

Gimbals

I’m currently trying to find out which gimbals work with YI 4K Action Camera. I tested the Zhiyun Z1-Evolution, which works perfectly and the Z1-Rider2, which will work with the camera, but similar to the YI 1, doesn’t really fit, as the camera is too high.
