When it comes to most adventures, we all want an ActionCam that is rugged, has a resolution to die for, good battery life and other general stuff. But for some adventures- the tiny details make a lot of difference and any compromise would be disappointing. So we tested all our ActionCams to see which one was best for hiking and trekking. As you’ve guessed it by now, it is the Yi Lite ActionCam!
Below are some reasons why we rate this on the top when it comes to climbing mountains on legs rather than wheels:
- Ease of use:
Imagine hiking for long hours with a huge backpack on, being hungry and thirsty while realising that you’ve still got a few miles left to reach your camp site. When the going gets tough, even the slightest of ‘inconveniences’ can cause your ‘I love being around nature’ mood to go straight down to ‘I didn’t sign up for this’. During these ‘stressed times’, the mind becomes agitated and hence prefers tools that are simple and easy to use- just like the Yi Lite ActionCam. The feather touch screen, user friendly interface and smart navigation helps users adapt quickly and behaves the way you would want it to. It is so easy to use that you’d be happy to wake up in the middle of the cold night and change image parameters inside a tent on the Sandakphu or Annapoorna trek. What’s best? You could even buy the touch screen waterproof case separately in case you went on a snowy/ rainy trek.
- Fastest data transfer to your cell phone:
Since the norm is to travel light, you don’t need a hard drive or laptop with you to backup all your content from the Yi Lite ActionCam. This in our opinion has one of the fastest Wifi speeds among many ActionCams, including those expensive 300$ ones. With 5G speeds, one could transfer their 2.5 GB HD clip into their phone in just 2 minutes! Save up that space in your backpack for unique rock souvenirs or Buddhist prayer bells on the way back from your trek.
- Power Packed:
Among all our ActionCams, the Yi Lite lasted the longest in terms of battery backup. And it had too since it comes with a 1400 mAh battery as standard- only if you buy it from our website or any of our Retail Partners. With a continuous recording time of around 140 minutes, the Yi Lite helps in capturing moments in remote areas where power isn’t abundantly available. Use these hacks from us and you would smooth sail through your adventure efficiently.
- Stabilise those climbs:
The Yi Lite uses advanced image stabilisation that particularly helps in the kind of footage taken with the use of a chest strap mount. A mount widely used by trekkers, hikers and cyclists also, the view from a chest straps is often mesmerising when climbing or descending scenic landscapes. The Yi Lite ActionCam records the bumps and jolts of the adventure and smoothens them out with its Electronic Image Stabilisation, making your content more enjoyable to watch and share.
- 150 degrees of area to capture:
Take the Yi Lite on your next adventure on foot and get back with you all that you saw before your eyes in just one frame. The Yi Lite has a wide angle 150 degrees lens that doesn’t let anything go unseen. From Landscapes at dawn to starry nights in the forest, this ActionCam captures it all without a glitch. Get it to know it ! Want to record videos with a super wide view too? Just switch to 1440P resolution and enjoy the view.
- Price point:
All we want to say is that you get the above ‘Pro level’ advantages with the ActionCam in a tiny box packed with charging cable, tripod mount, waterproof case, a basic accessories/ mounts kit, a 2 year manufacturer warranty for just INR 12,500!
