3. Using the XIAOMI Yi sports camera
The cheapest solution for making photos and videos of a model railway layout is to use the XIAOMI Yi camera. This is a cheap action camera from China, however, which provides an absolutely perfect image quality. One could say that it is a clone of the famous GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition camera.
The XIAOMI Yi camera is unfortunately too wide to use when shooting video with railways with oncoming traffic in HO scale. But when there are no catenary and no tunnel, the camera is a very inexpensive base system for model railroaders. The camera is so small, so that you can put it next to the railway line, on platforms or on miniature roads on your model train layout. And, the XIAOMI Yi camera generates an excellent image and video quality.
