YI Technology has announced the YI 4K+, the first action camera to capture 4K photos and videos at 60 frames per second (fps), and their new Erida tricopter drone.
Based on the YI 4K, the YI 4K+ is the third action camera in YI’s line of quality and affordable solutions. The faster frame rate of 60fps is double that of GoPro’s Hero5 products and allows for more realistic, video content.
“2016 has been a whirlwind of product launches including an exciting partnership with Google to develop a virtual reality camera rig,” said Sean Da, CEO of YI Technology.
YI’s Erida is a full carbon drone, which combines strength, speed and YI’s 4K Action camera in a unique, three-rotor design. Due to the durable and lightweight nature of Erida’s carbon frame, the Erida is fast and agile, reaching speeds of up to 75 miles per hour and flying for up to 40 minutes in initial runs.
YI’s Erida Features:
» Up to 120 minutes of recording time and an integrated, high-resolution camera touchscreen
» Manual IQ parameters for advanced photographers including shutter, exposure value compensation, level sensitivity, metering mod and white balance
» Advanced gimbal system for smooth shooting
» Patented, folding rotors offering a compact design that makes it portable and easy to carry
» Controlled by the corresponding YI Erida mobile app
» Advanced sensor and radar system with a built-in laser scanner for maximum safety
The YI Erida drone was created in cooperation with Atlas Dynamics, a team of aerospace engineers and software developers. YI Technology and Atlas bring together aerospace expertise and research with world-class imaging technology in the newest, industry-leading drone.
