Xiaomi YI vs SJCAM SJ4000 WiFi Which one is better?
In this video I compared cameras from various aspects. Video, Photo, Audio test. Accessories comparison, usability, etc.
This Xiaomi YI vs SJ4000 video is based on my personal experience of using both cameras for 3+ months. So I assure you I am not a paid YouTuber who promotes crap. I want to share my own honest view on both cameras.

Great video! Thank you. For me it's a plus that the Yi as no screen. They break so easily if you mount them on a multirotor and crash :)

Can I use it for recordin' videos for my educational YouTube channel ? I mean, I need a camera which could record good 1080p videos at 30fps at a fixed distance in 10K range ?

The videos from SJcam are much sharper and more detailed than the YI, YI seems more saturated. Audio is much better with the YI.

Because I will be in some wet situations where using a phone to see what I have in shot and if I like the settings I have adjusted for a particular environment would NOT be possible, SJ4000 won for me by having a screen. There isn't a lot to it though for low-light the YI does seem to beat it (and the YI has truer-to-life colours in video comparisons than the SJ4000). So I just ordered one, but I might get the YI later on, if I want to use it for my cave-diving expeditions.

Really good review. I decided to order a Yi Cam, Chinese edition, but I am a little worried that it will not work with the English (international) app... do you know if it will be a problem?

very very excellent review... thanks
I choose sj4000 for me since I only use a cam maybe 3 or 4 times a year on my vacation on beach. I need the lcd to view the modes and edit, really convenience. Sj cam beats xi in pictures though, but not on videos.

Well .. i was already looking at prices for the sj4000 but now he Xiaomi Yi`s colors look more realistic and the video is more stable (better video stabilization ) And the sound seemed better ...
i would love to have a screen but i have my phone on me at all times and the 6" 4k screen on my phone always wins against pretty much any tiny screen so ...
Xiaomi Yi wins it for me

What video editing software do you use? Mine always destroys the quality of my footage.
