day 4192 - 356/365.  odin sets up his christmas surprise - a yi action camera.

we’re traveling so we left many of odin’s presents in wisconsin to be opened when we get back. but not all of them! we surprised him with a YI action camera which is comparable to a gopro hero but instead of costing $300+, it costs less than a $100. you can get it for $69 but we paid $20 bucks more for the convenience of amazon prime. an an underwater housing was on sale for $10 (?!) and a set of every mount he’ll need to get started ( helmet mount, chest mount, selfie stick, suction mount etc ) cost us just $25 more.

while that’s not nothing, it’s certainly makes it easier to get it for odin and not feel too much pain if ( when? ) he breaks it while starting to explore his interest in extreme sports videography :-) you can see the camera’s capabilities on their youtube page. i expect we’ll see much more video from odin soon.

unboxing impressions were great. he had the app downloaded in and was controlling the camera from his iPod in no time.
