    $99.99
    YI Lite Action Camera
    The $100 gets you just the camera, a quick guide, a 1400 mAh battery and a short (8 3/4") USB cable - no case and no accessories.
    The camera has just 1 button, because on the back it has a touch screen.
    Learning how to navigate the touch screen menus is trial and error because there is no documentation, hard copy or online.
    But anyone having some experience with such menus shouldn't have to much trouble susing it out. After all. I managed. Even though I'm an old guy. I just by played with the camera off and on a few times today.

    One of the nice features of this little action camera is that it has a built in 1/4-20 tripod socket.

    Unfortunately this action camera is a tad wider than the $47 Eonfine action camera I had gotten several months back. I can use a lot of the Eonfine accessories but I can't use the Eonfine's waterproof housing.

    Kupton looks to have a decent accessory kit for the Yi Lite.
    I've got a couple extra batteries and a charger coming from Newmowa.

    Looks like fun. $99.99 seems more than fair.

    I got it to take on my Next AMTRAK California Zephyr Adventure.
    I be shooting video with the action camera, my cell phone, and my DSLR.
    I'll use an external directional microphone with my DSLR and cell phone. Unfortunately, the Yi Lite doesn't have an external mic jack.

    I got a monopod with a fluid pan head and feet too.
    I'll use the monopod and my GorillaPod SLR Zoom with my DSLR, phone, and Yi Lite.
    With an adapter I can take the fluid head off the monopod and put it on the Gorilla Pod.
    I'll also have a SmallRig Clamp Mount with me for the phone & Yi Lite.
