Action cameras are a great way to capture, well, action. Designed to be both tough and low profile, they're easy to strap to your body to record your adventures hang gliding (or whatever). They're generally pretty pricey, though, with some high-end models going for hundreds of dollars. The Yi 4K Action Camera is already a nice bargain at its normal price of $121.99, and you can currently get 20 percent off the little guy on Amazon. Read More

Today Amazon has the YI 4K, in black, white, and pink colors, for $50 off. That brings the camera down to just $199.99. Read More
A few weeks ago I wrote a preview article introducing the Yi 4K action camera. The upstart Chinese company has boldly promised that their top of the line $249 action cam can outperform the GoPro Hero4 Black (the Hero5 Black had yet to be announced when I began testing) which sells for $100-150 more.
