Gopro alternative - Xiaomi Yi

Hello EF,


I am in the marked for a cheaper alternative to the famous Gopro.
So far what my search online have directed me towards the Xiaomi Yi.


Any of you guys / girls have hands on experience with this camera?
Anyone knows where I can buy it in CH online or in a shop?
I have searched the internet with my best german skills, and also went to FNAC and Interdiscount in Fribourg but with no luck.


Thx in advance for any tips etc.


/Kevin

I saw that one too, but I have never heard of the dealer, and they do not have the actual camera in stock. So was hoping there were other options out there.

If not on one of the main sites (digitech, microspot, etc) order online via Ebay straight from China. Done that plenty of times with lots of electronics and never had a problem. Delivery takes long (3-4 weeks) and you may have to pay tax at the post office but if it's not really available locally there's not much you can do.

This could be an option - thank you. I do not have much experience orderong stuff on Ebay etc. Guess one time has to be the first.

It's available from Amazon (as the vendor) on Amazon.de, but they won't ship to Switzerland. If you can get to a delivery address in Germany, that's an option. At least you have a good return policy to fall back on...
