Ximode - The best extension for your Xiaomi Yi action camera.
Ximode is the long time requested video and photo mode extension for your Xiaomi Yi action camera. Ximode provides Yitune (GoPro's® equivalent: Protune), SupYiView (GoPro's® equivalent: Superview), improved auto mode (standard mode of your Xiaomi Yi action camera), normal mode and nightlapse mode. Upgrade your Xiaomi today!
CAPTURE BETTER VIDEOS
This is the basic mode which the normal Xiaomi Yi uses, but improved. Capture now two times longer videos without the files beeing split. The JPEG quality has been enhanced to 100%. All uneccesary _thm.mp4 and .THM files are deleted each reboot!
Mode for night or low light environment filming. We limited noise reduction that the videos are not that "grainy". HDR sharpness and saturation/vibrance correction have been added too. The bitrate has been increased to 35 Mbps. All other configurations from AUTO mode have been implemented too.
Normal mode has a better color correction and was created for daylight shootings. The videos have a more natural look. Moreover we implemented an HDR script which makes the videos sharper and the Xiaomi Yi action camera shoots RAW images too. The bitrate has been increased to 35 Mbps. All other configurations from AUTO mode have been implemented too.
Yitune is a flat video mode and is perfect for postprocessing your movies. In addition is auto-sharpening disabled. The bitrate has been increased to 35 Mbps. All other configurations from AUTO mode have been implemented too. (GoPro's® equivalent: Protune)
Mode for immersive wide angle perspective, captures 1600x1200p60 4:3 videos and stretches it to 1920x1080p60 16:9 videos, uses the height of the camera's sensor that you get with 4:3. Makes the borders "roundened". The bitrate has been increased to 35 Mbps. All other configurations from AUTO mode are implemented too.
Mode for timelapse photography in dark/night surroundings. Shutterspeed is set to 7.9 seconds, ISO is at 100 and Gain at 0. This ensures that you have clear, no noisy images during timelapse shootings!
If you don't like any of our settings, or want to use one more mode, and you know how to edit autoexec.ash's scripts, we implemented two free spots to add your own mode!
If you need a script on the go and noone of our scripts apply to your needs, simply use your android or iPhone to create a custom script for your Xiaomi Yi. (App needed: Telnet)
