Firefly 5S, Feature Packed Camera For Drones

Firefly 5S Sports Camera from the brand hawkeye is another addition to the the list of rapidly growing Sports Action Camera Segment. Firefly 5S seems to be a featured-packed sports camera,  yet another HD camera to consider for aerial photography, to go with drones and quadcopters

The compact size and shape of the sports cameras,  and their ability to attach to something  (relatively, Drones and Quadcopters) rather then being hand held, making this market grow rapidly faster. In the recent past, one such camera is Xiaomi Yi, which outperformed GoPro 3 for $66

Now back to the context, Firefly 5S is Adopting Sony 12 MegaPixels CMOS sensor for a better image Quality and can capture videos at 1080p 30 FPS and 720 at 60 frames per second with large 1600 mah Lithium-Ion battery, which lasts upto 2.5 hours of recording. Unlike the Blackview or the recent Dazzne, 5s does not come with the preview display screen at the back, but  has a OLED status screen at the the front which indicates the battery level, resolution, mode and the date.

Featuring ISO, WDR, Adjustable Sharpness and USB Powered Auto Record

Firefly 5S is capable of capturing time lapse videos and images, videos can be captured at 0.5 and 3 seconds intervals and the images can be captured at 3, 10 and 30 seconds and the cycle recording feature comes handy when this camera is used as dash-cam, allowing to override the first captures with the most recent ones with 5 minutes interval.

ISO (AUTO/100/400/1600) WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) and sharpness adjustments (Low Medium and High) are worth to mention features of Firefly 5S, these features give more flexibility in capturing the images in low light and cloudy conditions, best suited for aerial photography when  Gimbal attached to drones or quadcopters.Honestly this is not an option i have seen in the recent releases like Xiaomi Yi.
