Hawkeye Firefly 6S by Pevly Youtube review

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.

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

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

Hawkeye Firefly 6S by chaseontwowheels Youtube review

Description: Hawkeye Firefly 6S is a Chinese copy camera of the GoPro Hero 4 black. If a copy usually doesn’t work properly, you should see this cam specs. It has almost the same feature as the GoPro and functions really well. Both the videos and images also looks good and stunning, including the in-built microphone sound. The battery capacity is also bigger than the GoPro, which lasts 10 minutes longer. Unfortunately, the 4K is only @24FPS, if it’s @25FPS above, this cam should be remarkable. The blinking light is too subtle that you can’t even tell whether you’re recording or not.

Pros

  • Able to shoot 2,5K @30FPS, 1080p @60FPS, and 720p @120FPS
  • Can capture 12MP still images
  • Provides adjustment in ISO, sharpness, and color
  • Colors quality in the images or videos looks vivid and balanced
  • Video recording isn’t shaky
  • Battery capacity is bigger than the GoPro’s (1600mAh)
  • Camera navigation is easy to set
  • Has in-built microphone
  • Affordable price (around $100)

Cons

  • 4K is below @25FPS (@24FPS)
  • The blinking in the power button is too subtle
  • Doesn’t support external microphone
