Hi,

i just bought a yi lite and i am a bit surprised that it isn't possible to rotate the recording mode 180 for when the cam hangs upside down. Is this a feature that can be added via firmware update in the future?

Best regards

Yeah, I just bought one yesterday and updated it to latest firmware (1.8.04), all works well and then I realised I can't find any setting to rotate the feed. I'm a bit miffed to say the least.

YI Lite currently doesn't support rotation, the future firmware version would add this function, but we haven't got the exact time, please stay tuned.
Any further question about this camera that you have, please contact us at support@yitechnology.com, we'll try the best to help.

YI Lite currently doesn't support rotation, the future firmware version would add this function, but ...

I bought this camera earlier this week and only managed to take it out for a bike ride today.

Since I mount my camera upside down on a 'out-in-front' Garmin/GoPro mount this camera is pretty much useless for me as I only want to use this camera for cycling and nothing else.

I thought this would be a great upgrade from an older and much inferior SJCam M10+ but not being able to rotate means I have wasted my time and effort trying to make it work. I have spent part of an evening trying to find the setting to make it work.

I contacted technical support and they pointed me to an option that DOESN'T EXIST in the android app.

What good is an action camera that you cant invert when its mounted upside down??? My SJCam M10+ manages just fine....

Now i read here that the camera doesnt support it and to 'stay tuned' ???

Im sorry, but Im going to send it back to Amazon for a refund.
