According to a survey conducted by co-op.kinja.com, the most recommended budget action camera among users is the Yi Action Camera. Rated 4.5 out 5 stars, this little device earned several great reviews on Amazon.
It stands up well next to the GoPro Hero 4 which is much more expensive. For about $80, you can own a sports camera with a 16mp Sony Sensor, ultra-wide angle lens, microphone, Bluetooth and Built-in Wi-Fi, which allows you to view the photos from your smartphone or tablet.
It’s available in black, white and lime green. Consider getting one of the bundles with a waterproof case, extra batteries, and separate charger while you are there. Oh, and you will need an SD card for this camera (here’s a class 10 64GB micro SDXC for $20)
The quality is impressive for the price although unsurprisingly, GoPro, which I covered yesterday, still stands out.
