Specs, features and expert reviews for the new Xiaomi Mijia 4K action camera.

Summary

We spent over 5 hours scouring the internet for the best and worst reviews for this camera and here is our summary. This is a top of the range camera as far as specs go but at a quarter of the price of GoPro's new 5 and 6 releases. A solid looking first camera by Xiaomi which can only mean great things to come from them in the future. It's just a shame it doesn't come with any accessories, which you have to buy separately.

Reasons to buy

Reasons users are saying you should buy the Xiaomi Mijia 4k Action Camera

  • Priced at a competitive $110 and lower on some sites
  • A tried and trusted Sony Exmor IMX317 sensor which the Sony FDR X3000 uses and Ambarella A12 chipset
  • The sensor is 1/2.5" which means it's bigger than most other action camera sensors, which means better low light as a start
  • Can take JPG and Raw photographs
  • Real 4k footage, not interpolated and up to 200fps at a video res of 720p
  • Has inbuilt image stabalisation
  • Large battery size at 1450mAh and extra long battery life compared to similar cameras
  • Great price for the hardwear that you get in the camera
  • The touchscreen is great and easy to use
Reasons not to buy

Reasons to NOT buy the Xiaomi Mijia 4K Action Camera

  • If you need super wide, it only shoots at 145degrees FOV compared to some which can see up to 170 degrees
  • It's so new that spare batteries, chargers and underwater cases are only just coming out for it (early 2018)
  • Doesn't have mini USB so no easy external microphone option
  • Firmware updates are frequent but not the best, still issues after updating
  • It's memory capacity is only 64gb
