Micro Recording Cam

If you need a cheap, light and small camera to record with, then the Hawkeye Firefly Micro Action Cam could be for you. It's only $25 and weighs just 14g, but you are going to sacrifice some quality and flexibility compared to something like a GoPro. It can record 1080p and 720p, but only at 30fps. There's no 60fps which is preferred by a lot of drone pilots for smooth footage. The internal battery won't quite last an hour, so you need to be aware of that before heading out for a long session.

The camera comes with an FPV style angled mount which is clearly aimed at drone pilots. It also includes some GoPro style mounting accessories so you do have some options. Physically, the Firefly cam is very small, just 24x24x32mm overall. The FOV is 160 degrees and it does have the fisheye effect you'd be used to on other wide angle cameras. It does have AV out if you wanted to try to FPV from it, but we'd suggest using a normal FPV cam for flying and leave the Firefly to just handle the recording. So all in all, if you have a machine that is too small for a GoPro Session or just don't want to spend the cash to get a better camera, the Hawkeye Firefly should do just fine.

what is the operating voltage?
Can I just connect my 3s lipo direct to the camera?

I opened mine up because the camera seems out of focus. I noticed there was another button beside the charge port. Does anyone know what it's for?

It has it's own battery inside. They say it is good for 1 hour. It records .avi on SD micro card 15 min max, loops after that.

Maybe it's a re-set button?

Any fake ones of these spotted yet? A friend got one but the lens seems different, and there is also a smudge on the image that doesn't go when cleaning the lens.
