Back to the eBay Deals we go, where the BuyDig eBay store is offering the new condition YI 4K Sports and Action Video Camera in the “white pearl” color scheme, in the US edition, for $155 with free shipping with a limit of up to five per customer.
Speaking of YI, their YI M1 Two-Lens Kit micro four thirds camera with the 12-40mm and 42.5/1.8 lenses is back to $379 with free shipping in black or white.
The new condition YI Action Camera available in three color schemes (black, white, yellow) is going for $70 and at the same time it has a promotion that gets you an extra battery for it for FREE. To get the freebie, you must add both items to the shopping cart, and both must by sold by “YI Technology” with the order fulfilled by Amazon.
You can “Add to Cart” from the “Special Offers” section of the camera listing, or you can add them separately, making sure both are sold by “YI Technology” fulfilled by Amazon:
+ YI Action Camera (US Edition)
+ YI Action Camera Battery Replacement
Alternately, the same free battery promotion is available if you purchase the $82 YI Action Camera with Waterproof Case Black. Similarly add the battery to the cart, or use the “Add both to cart” under the “Special Offers” section of the action camera listing.
PS: speaking of YI, their YI M1 camera with 12-40mm and 42.5mm f1.8 M43rds 2-lens kit continues to go for $379.
The new condition SLR Magic 8mm f4 Micro Four Thirds lens is on sale for a limited time for $200 with free shipping at Adorama, or for $199 plus shipping at B&H Photo.
Speaking of alternative M43rds manufacturers, the YI with 12-40mm continues for $299, and even better the YI M1 with 12-40mm and 42.5mm f1.8 goes for $379 with free shipping in either black or silver.
Ooops, I missed this last night when I posted the B&H Daily Deals, but the YI Technology Action Camera in black or white, is going for $55 with free shipping until 11:59pm ET or earlier if sold out. It probably looked like a security camera when I was checking late last night 🙂
But the headliner of the Monday daily deals remains the Tokina 12-28mm f/4.0 AT-X Pro APS-C Lens for Canon for $199.
This early morning lightning deal expired…
Ending by 10:25am ET in the Amazon Gold Box is the YI Technology M43rds sale that was promised and it’s pretty good for the YI M1 with 12-40mm going for $239~ with free shipping in the aforelinked black or silver color schemes. Limit one per color per customer. This was going for $300 before the sale, and $350 before Prime Day week. So it’s a pretty good discount… PS: there is also the two lens kit for $303~, so decisions-decisions.
The YI M43rds camera sale continues from Prime Day at Amazon’s website, but there’s more action on the YI sales front. Their entry-level YI action camera gets a FREE YI Action Camera Battery Replacement, all together for $60 with free shipping. You can add them to the shopping cart individually, or you can page down to the “Special offers and product promotions” of the action camera product page and click on the “Add Both to Cart” yellow button. No coupon is needed.
The price of the battery will be deducted at the top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page. No coupon is needed. If the price of the battery does not get deducted, it means the offer ended or there’s something else wrong.
These are sold by YI’s Amazon store, with the orders fulfilled by Amazon, so they are Prime-eligible if you are a member.
YI is taking Prime Day seriously with actual discounts, unlike many of the MAP-obsessed more famous iLC camera manufacturers. Their YI M1 with 12-40mm Micro Four Thirds camera is now on sale for $299 instead of its regular price of $350 in the silver or black color schemes by YI with the orders fulfilled by Amazon, so they are Prime eligible.
Their two other kits are also discounted (two lens kit, or with 42.5mm f1.8 instead of 12-40). The best bang for the buck is the YI M1 with 12-40mm and 45mm f1.8 for $379, so essentially $80 more gets you the 45mm f1.8 lens added to your bundle.
+ these are open to everyone, they are not restricted to Prime members!
This sale ended…
The new condition YI 4K+/60fps Action Camera with Waterproof Case with RAW capture is on sale for $280 with free shipping at Amazon.com offered at this price by both the YI Amazon store, and by Amazon itself. This is not a lightning deal but an “organic” sale. It is NOT restricted to Prime members.
GoPRO is no longer the only game in town when it comes to action cameras. YI technology (apparently action cameras hate long brand names mayhaps because there’s not a lot of space on the compact devices to write them on) is generating some buzz with their models, and at the moment, they have a combined purchase coupon and a freebie as well. The offers are stackable.
Here are the steps:
* start at the YI 4K+ Action Camera product page; page down until you…
* … locate the offer that says “Receive 1 Floating Grip free” (you will receive one FREE YI Floating Grip (randomly chosen color)
* hit the yellow “Add Both to Cart”
* if you don’t want the Gimbal, that’s it, proceed to checkout
* if you also want the Gimbal at 50% off, add the YI Gimbal 3-Axis Handheld Stabilizer to the shopping cart and enter coupon code YIGIMBAL
* the coupon cuts the price of the Gimbal from $200 to $100
* your total is $340 (Action Cam) + $100 (Gimbal after coupon) = $440
The top right corner of the Amazon Checkout page looks like this when all is well and this offer is stacked:
It look longer than the original Four Thirds planners envisioned, but there are more M43rds camera gear now by third-party manufacturers than ever.

Three different color schemes of the US Edition of the YI Action Camera are currently on sale for $80 at Amazon by Amazon itself.
