The Good

  • Decent daytime video
  • 4K30 with EIS
  • 4K60 max (no EIS)
  • Good 1080p footage
  • Great audio quality

The Bad

  • Daytime video could have more detail in 4K
  • Night footage is so-so
  • Camera waterproof doors could be better built


The Firefly X is pretty middle of the road: excellent audio quality, decent video and OK image stabilization. The only stand-out feature is the waterproofing (without external case). And I would not trust it all that much as it is pretty basic and some of the clips holding the battery door in place is pretty sketchy. They do not hold on as tight as I would hope so I do not trust this camera to stay waterproof. Overall I cannot find any glaring flaws in the camera but there’s also not too much that it excels at. Perhaps it’ll be more worthwhile when it goes on sale in the future but at a $170+ price point I think it is too much money.

Where to Buy



I wouldn’t buy it. Spend $30 more and get the DJI Osmo Action, which at $199 is better in every single way.
