Ever since the amazing Xiaomi Yi burst onto the scene we supported these wonderful cameras, and now we support the latest 4k variant the Yi4k. I look forward to seeing what people can do with them.
Please note the image showing potential render of 9.5K :-)
IMPORTANT, read the note about the bolts below in the parts list.
The cameras cost from $249 roughly each including shipping, remember you need to add a memory card as well but they only cost about £9 for a 32gb version.

1 x Brahma-6 Yi4k rig, this one :-)
6 x XIaomi Yi $249 each,http://www.gearbest.com/action-cameras/pp_360138.html?wid=21
6 x Micros SD 32gb $11 each http://www.gearbest.com/memory-cards/pp_28060.html
6 x 1/4" hex bolts 3/8" length. http://ebay.eu/2ddSfSq
IMPORTANT NOTE on bolts, two of the holes are inset and the screws are 0.5 mm to long, so either get shorter bolts, or put a small washer in the inset to close it. This is part of making lenses as close together as possible, sorry it is a pain but this is as small as the rig can be to ensure the best stitch unlike some copies that have much larger rigs.
Camera stand which works well with this system http://ebay.eu/1OO9N7K
6 x Quality USB cables http://ebay.eu/1LjhRWw or use the supplied ones.
USB hub http://ebay.eu/1X3WjEd
Brilliant little adaptor to mount on base of rig mount with a 1/4 bolts through the hole to give a great camera mount, just get a 25mm (1 inch) bolt through the Rig mount hole into it and mount to stand on other end.
Please note I now have an adaptor for converting to a 5 camera horizontal system which give vertical seams, the other camera works better at this however due to the orientation of the cameras.
