When is the 8SE release to public?

That's what i need to know... and also rumors of a 9S or 9SE with better sensor & Lens for quality and Gyro on 2k 60fps. I know 4k 60fps gyro on is still to early....

The Smooth Q definitely is good partner to the Firefly 8S, have a look here:

External Mic and External Power Supply


Is there a way to have external mic and external power at the same time?

I have a Firefly 8s that is giving me issues. Does anyone know a troubleshoot section or a support email for Hawkeye? Is there a way to hard boot? Thanks, George.

Eventually stumbled across this page on the Hawkeye site :
http://cnfpv.com/portal.php?mod=view&aid=64

From HERE, download and install the USB software

Once done, download and extract the .ELF file for you camera.
Firefly8S-V1.0.61 , V version
Firefly8S-U1.0.61 ,U version

Once installed and the files extracted, remove the battery and Micro SD card. have the Ambarella software running on your PC. press and Hold the arrow button on the side of the camera closest to the rear LCD whilst simultaneously plugging the USB lead into the computer. You MAY have to press the power button momentarily.

When the software says `READY`,

Select the .ELF firmware (you`ll also have to change the type from .bin to .elf or it won`t show up), change the chipset type to S2L(A12) and then click the large button with the arrow pointing down.


This will reflash the firmware and hopefully unbrick your camera.
George see if this hellps

Thanks for that info.

Not sure if mine is a U or a V version. No way to check. Guess I can try both. Crossing the fingers.
