GoPro Hero 5 Black vs Xiaomi Mijia 4K Spec Comparison

Comparison of specs and features of the GoPro Hero 5 Black and the Xiaomi Mijia 4K action cameras.

6 Advantages of the GoPro Hero 5 Black Action Camera

  • 15degrees more field of view, that means slightly larger view in your recordings
  • The GoPro uses a 1/2.3" sensor size compared to the 1/2.5" Xiaomi which means it should be better naturally at low light
  • 12mp photographs which are 4mp more pixels than the Xiaomi Mijia 4K
  • Only slightly faster frame rates, at 1080p 120fps compared to the 100fps available for the Mijia 4k
  • Waterproof and good to take underwater to depths of 10m without an extra case
  • Audio 3.5mm out for professional audio recording

6 Advantages of the Xiaomi Mijia 4K Action Camera

  • A hell of a lot cheaper for the Xiaomi Mijia 4k action camera, a quarter of the price at launch
  • A newer camera having only been released in mid 2017
  • Photos in video available
  • Double the battery life when recording the same footage size
  • Larger screen at 2.44" diaganol so you can see more of what you are doing
  • Lighter camera out of the underwater case at only 99grams
