Especially in the model making could “Hawkeye” already making a name. In addition to traditional Action Cams manufacturers also introduces a range of ultra-compact, lightweight cameras, which are often recovered on drones and other flying models. The Firefly Micro is a published early 2018 mini camera model that is priced already available for $23.59 on Gearbest.
The Firefly Micro is a tiny among the high-resolution action cams. Not even coin-sized, rectangular housing is only 24 mm wide, 24 mm high and 32 mm deep. The weight is a light 14g. Thus, the mini-camera is all about lightweight model aircraft with an additional camera function to expand. An appropriate bracket is included. A water protection does not offer the housing.
The power supply takes place via a permanently integrated 230 mAh battery. According to Hawkeye, this is enough for a maximum recording time of 60 minutes. The charging time is according to the manufacturer at 2 1/2 hours. On the luxury of a WiFi or Bluetooth function is waived. Nor does the mini-camera have a display. The operation is pure via two control buttons.
The Firefly Micro takes videos in 1080p (Full HD) and 720p (HD). The refresh rate is 30 frames-per-second. The built-in 2-megapixel image sensor comes from “General plus”, whose sensors are mainly used in inexpensive dash cams. The recordings made in AVI format can be saved on a microSD memory card. For a particularly wide field of view provides a 160-degree wide-angle lens. Matching the video, the sound is recorded via an integrated microphone. An AV signal can be tapped via the USB socket of the Firefly Micro.
The Hawkeye Firefly Micro is not a usual action cam but is aimed primarily at hobbyists who are less on a variety of functions, as much more on a lightweight and a compact housing. According to first reports, the Hawkeye Mini-Camera has appeared in direct competition with the SQ11 Mini-Camera and delivers a slightly better recording quality in direct comparison. Nevertheless, Hawkeye’s 1080p resolution is most likely a mere interpolated resolution.
It is also widely criticized that even at 720p a maximum frame rate of 30 frames per second is supported, which leaves a bitter aftertaste regarding FPV.
