Floating Hand Grip For Xiaomi Yi
Like a waterproof case, this piece of gear comes as a must if your intention is to use the camera underwater. Its main purpose is to prevent your tiny camera from drowning. Yeah really, if you accidentally drop your camera while it being attached to a grip, it will not sink. Instead your camera will float.
Floating grip can not only serve as a protection but also help you stabilize your video while swimming or diving, because it provides firm and much better grip.
Plenty of people would say : “I do not give a damn about dropping the camera at the bottom of the ocean, it is cheap anyway, I will buy another one”. Okay, so with this logic, do these people do not even need a waterproof case underwater, because the camera is cheap, right? Oh boy.
I am not a diver myself, but when going underwater just for fun, I always use a floating grip. For this particular camera, you can use any.
There is an official one, which is pricier then third party ones.
If you ask me, it does not make huge difference which one you will get. If you are on a budget, you can get cheaper one, you will be just fine, as long as the grip floats, no needs to spend tons of money on official items.
