Hawkeye Firefly 6S by Pevly

Description: Hawkeye Firefly 6S may look like a good action cam that can capture and record 4k video. When you see the box, it doesn’t have the 6S brand anywhere in the packaging, which is weird. Things start to make sense when you use it. The features of the action cam don’t work as it was advertised. The 4K video is actually not 4K because it records only 2880 max and the 16MP camera is actually 12MP. Features like Vivid and Extended battery don’t give any specific changes. It’s good to note that quality always comes from price.

Cons

  • No recording or sound indicator while recording
  • Pictures quality is a bit blurry and lacks some details
  • Need a firmware update to enjoy the GSS
  • Flare effects when capturing picture in a bright daylight
  • 4k video isn’t an actual 4K (960 pixel lower compared to real 4K)
  • Small LCD display
  • Box said 16MP while in reality it’s just 12MP
  • Colors might not be as vivid as expected

Pros

  • Able to record 4K FHD video
  • Capture 12MP still images
  • In-built GSS (Gyro Sensor Stabilization)
  • Affordable price ($110-$120)
  • Supports Wi-Fi & waterproof (30m)
  • 1600mAh battery capacity
  • Design is a combination of Xiaomi YI, Amkov 5000S, SJ4000
