Hello Frank. I’m ready to test this camera. Contact me. :ok_hand:


The official retail price will $284.9 under current usd/rmb rate.

Pre-sale will start at $229.9 very soon in SIYI Official Stores.


A8 mini does not come with it. We talked about the ONVIF standard when we release ZR10. The team requires some promising projects to make it higher priority. Would you mind discussing about it, please?

Appreciate it very much!

What will A8 mini gimbal camera’s video quality be like? I would say AMAZING!!! Even if it is just shot by engineering sample. Be sure that you are watching at 4K quality!

ONVIF is a standard for security applications. It is required when doing security UAVs or security Rovers.

Thanks for the information Frank.
