The Good

  • Real 4K at 30 FPS
  • Stabilised 1080p 60
  • True 12MP stills
  • Easy user interface
  • Smooth buttons on waterproof case

The Bad

  • Audio recording is a bit muffled
  • Waterproof case adds haze

Initial impressions of this camera are very positive, and this camera is fast becoming one of my favorite real 4K cameras I’ve tested to date. The reason I prefer it over competitors such as the SJ7 Star or the ThiEYE T5e, is because it loudly beeps when buttons are pressed, compared to the other cameras, which only have soft beeping that is difficult to hear in the waterproof case. I often use these cameras on my helmet and having a clear audible confirmation that the camera is recording is a huge plus. The video quality is similar to the other cams. The user interface is highly customized and simplified and the stabilization is slightly better than similarly priced competitors. More information about this camera will be released soon with the full review.

Author’s Note: Check out the Firefly 8SE. It’s this same camera but slightly improved in many ways!
