Xiaomi Mijia review – small action camera 4k touchscreen


Xiaomi is the well-known Chinese brand that is emerging in so many fields worldwide, offering cheap products at really competitive prices compared to the competition, ranging from mobile phones to robotic vacuum cleaners, laptops, tv and action cams. We remember the first Xiaomi Yi, a great action cam of a couple of years ago, which competed hardly with the Gopro. The Yi brand then went to the Yi technology that produced other 2 cams of excellent quality, the Yi 4k and Yi 4k plus, the first action cam recording at 4k @ 60fps as will the future Gopro 6.

Now Xiaomi is again part of the action cam scene, presenting this new Mijia, aesthetically beautiful and technologically advanced and with exceptional price for what it offers. This cam allows you to record real-time 4k video at 30fps thanks to the Ambarella A12 chipset and the brand new Cmos Sony IMX 317 sensor.

The lens has a 145 ° FOV, which is smaller than the 170 ° class, bad news to the fisheye lovers, but it will make happy those who prefer less distortion.

The aesthetic is very pleasing and original, dark black color, rounded corners, lens surrounded by a chrome plated, with integrated UV filter. One button, on the top, like the Yi 4k.

 

Hardware then to the top of the range, accompanied by a huge 2.4 inch screen with 960 x 480 resolution which is even touchscreen! The thing in itself is not extraordinary, but if you look at the price of only 96€/115$ it becomes so! The action cams with touch screen, which have a certain video quality, never drop below 150€, such as the SJ7 and Yi 4k. So this cam will do a competition both at the slightly higher price range action cams such as the SJ7 and the Yi 4K, as well at the cheaper as the Firefly 8s that does not have the touchscreen.

But it does not end there, because the Mijia also has a 6-axis EIS stabilizer with Bosch gyroscope and accelerometer, dual microphone, bluetooth and wifi, 1450mAh battery with 120 minutes (4K recording), all in only 99grams and small dimensions of 71.5 x 42.7 x 29.5mm.
