I have a question..now i have a yi sport cam and i'm very satisfed.
My main use of that cam is for selfie and shooting panoramas..
I use also for video but is a secondary use (less than photo use).
Now i found a good offer for buy new cam yi 4k (not the last one 4k plus) and i want to know if that upgrade is a good idea or not..considering my main use i risk to shot worse photo??!!!
Photo quality of yi 4k it's better or not respect old model of yi??
My fear is that sony sensor imx377 12mpx(yi 4k) is better for video but worsens phto quality respect old sony imx 206 16mpx (yi)..
thanks for all ;)

The IMX206 was designed for photo cameras, the IMX377 is designed for video, yes in some ways the 206 is the better sensor for photos. Possibly if you were using raw photos you would prefer the 377 for better dynamic range.

You might find you prefer the lens on the 4K, but it might be better to wait a bit longer for a good deal on a 4K+ which has a really good lens, then you will see a genuine improvement.
