Hawkeye Firefly 8S by Redskull Youtube review

Description: Using the Sony IMX117 sensor, Hawkeye Firefly 8S certainly able to shoot or record high-qualities videos or images. It also has the Gyro Image Stabilization (GIS) that can stabilize the action cam so the picture that you take won’t look shaky. However, that GIS can’t be used for the 4K recording video. It’s only available for 1080p. In the daylight, the photos look amazing and nice, but at nighttime, they look a bit shaky and blurry. This action camera also supports external microphone, but it’s good to note that the sound won’t be crystal clear.

Pros

  • Can capture 4K @30FPS video
  • Package includes waterproof case (up to 20m)
  • Supports external microphone
  • 4K video quality is good and smooth
  • Colors in the videos or images look vibrant and balanced

Cons

  • Need to download app to operate the action camera
  • App connection is a bit slow
  • Gyro Image Stabilization (GIS) can’t be used while recording 4K (only 1080p)
  • Body is made of plastic
  • Battery capacity isn’t big enough (up to 15 minutes if recording 4K)
  • Videos in low-light mode is a bit blurry, shaky, and lacks of details
  • A lot of noise in the microphone
