Hawkeye FIREFLY 5S with ultra high capacity battery
There are three important factors around action cameras: image quality, features and recording time. I can’t tell that this Hawkeye FIREFLY 5S excels in terms of image quality but definitely should have the longest operation time. Powered with a ultra high capacity 1600mAh battery the continuous working time is estimated to be about two hours. This way you can record mainly any sports competition without replacing the battery.
The heart (imaging unit) of the FIREFLY 5S action camera is the well known Novatek 96655 chip that is also used in the popular SJ5000 camera.
The accessories included in the package are very few compared to the variety of accessories that other action cameras have. In my opinion, this camera is more suitable to be installed on a remote controlled toy that to be used as regular action/sports camera. The package includes an USB to AV-Out cable that allows to be used for first person view flights.
