Xiaomi YI is quite a good camera, but it does not come with any accessories inside. Buying accessories will certainly make things easier, but it will also increase the total cost of the action camera. If you are on a budget and have enough time, some of the accessories can be done as a DIY weekend project, which will save you few bucks here and there.
Even though most of the additional equipment for Xiaomi YI is quite cheap, once you start buying it will add up, so try to buy only the items you really need. There is no need to go crazy and buy every single item that says “for xiaomi yi”.
Instead, with the money you saved with DIY and go buy a bus ticket and go somewhere where you can create memorable videos. Remember, its not all about the gear.
However for important gear, such as waterproof case, remote controller or a battery, its better to spend few extra bucks and get original items rather then little cheaper but far more crappier gear from third party sellers and copycats.
