Agreed about the other features, but maybe after some firmware tweaks this will be a decent (cheaper) alternative to Yi 4k. At the moment in terms of image quality Yi wins no contest.

Hi at RCGroups!

Wich version do you get at Gearbest? The 90 version or the other one? Will the lens be removable? What aperture hat the 90 lens?

I tried many 90, 80 and 60 degree lenses on my Yi 1. But I was not happy with one of them. They had small aperture, red corners or werent as sharp as original lens. So I am very intersted in the new lens for Firefly 8S. Will the lenses separately available? Would like to buy a Firefly 8S wirth 90 lens and have an additional fischeye lens.

Nice! If the price of 90 version won't bi higher, I will be the first one that pushes the "buy" button.
What will be maximum bit-rate? Will it have a different waterproof case because of the longer lens?

Will the final version look the same? I think the Yi2 does a better job at that video.
