I cannot find the input voltage for one of these listed anywhere.
Can I connect it to my flight pack or do I need a voltage converter?
You need a voltage regulator. Unlike the full-sized Firefly the Firefly Micro only accepts 5 volts.

Here you go, first testflight with the Firefly Microcam on my beloved Holybro Kopis!

Hawkeye Firefly Microcam on Kopis 1 (1 min 47 sec)

The cam gets a bit of jello from the Kopis, need to look into that.
Everything else is fine. THe only strange thing is a black dot in the middle of the sun ... sensor overload?

I installed a 5v pololu on my Firefly micro wires and made it my primary-cam for use off the main battery.

What I was hoping for:
A replacement main camera for my 50-ish gram action cameras in airplanes and quads where the lighter weight would be of benefit.

What I got:
I was disappointed to see that there doesn’t seem to be a “settings” function. The camera by default always starts in 720p mode and has to be set to 1080p every time the it was powered up. I couldn’t find a way to turn off the OSD in the main video feed. The date stamp, some weird symbols, 720p, and the red flashing icon were all taking up real-estate.

The video was smeary, just the simple act of panning the camera would display the nose of my airplane as nothing but a white blur in the video feed/recorded video. Landing became an issue with the smear-effect, individual rocks not showing up on the FPV feed and the video as a whole looked pretty bad. The image looked grey-ish/under-exposed, lacking that bold color, pop, the contrast and gradient of the Firelfy Q6.

For my purposes I found the camera too crappy to use as a main-cam and the video quality too poor to use as a secondary cam.

That’s not to say this camera doesn’t have its uses. At only 14 grams this camera falls into a viable option as a secondary cam for 100-ish mm quads like Victor K did and something that won’t break the bank if you manage to crash it.

However for anything else that can take a couple extra grams, Mobius mini at 27 grams or Runcam Split at 21 grams are going to be the better options.
