Xiaomi Mijia

Another new camera for 2017 is the Xiaomi Mijia. This camera uses the MStar MSC8328P processor (formerly named the AIT8328P) paired with a Sony IMX323 CMOS sensor. While numerous other cameras have used the MSC8328P processor in 2017, this is the first time we have seen it paired with a Sony processor.

The Mijiaa can record at 1080p resolution at 30fps with a bit rate of 16Mbps. Video quality during the day is very good and night quality is good. Leveraging the Sony IMX323 definitely improves night quality when compared to the cameras using the MSC8328P paired with the Omnivision OV4689 sensor (Mini 0805P, Mini 0801S).

While the Mijia is quite small at 88mm x 53mm x 28mm, the rectangular form factor is not the most discreet. On the positive side the camera is black with only some silver accents and the adhesive mount is small. The Mijia comes with a 3″ screen, G-sensor and WiFi. It does not come with GPS and uses a 240mAh battery instead of a capacitor (capacitor is better for hot environments). Build quality is very good as well.

To use the WiFi capability, download the Mijia app to your smartphone. Some owners have complained of inconsistent Wifi performance with this camera.

The Mijia has a very simple menu system but note currently the menu is only in Chinese. We would like to thank our member Agie who created a review on our forum and also this unboxing video. The unboxing video walks through the menu system as well.

Should I Purchase?

Overall, the Xiaomi Mijia is a decent camera from a video quality perspective but not outstanding. Build quality is good but the form factor is not the most discreet. Overall an ok camera for the money but not an outstanding camera on any dimension.
