Does anyone know if the 90 degree lens was improved from the Firefly 8S? I can read a lot about lens improvement but when I look at 90 degree videos I cannot see it.

Yes it has loop recording, for dashcam use. And I have motorbike cam footage on my review of this camera. With vlogging, ie using the external mike.
Firefly 8SE unboxed, full version, great tests clips, using camera, wifi, microphone vlogging (37 min 3 sec)

I just looked at the FPV lead on the Firefly I'm not sure it does have audio out? You had better ask Firefly I thing. Hawkeye is the company.

Hi

I will describe my problem with FF8SE

My Firefly with MODx 3.0 has stopped working. After turning on the camera, power button led is lit (bottom part) and that's all. No screen reaction, front led is off and no possibility to turn off the camera. When the power led is lit, the camera gets hot like as during normal operation. To turn the camera I need to take off the battery. Connecting to ac power (with or without the battery) give the same results.
I have also taken the battery off for a longer while and wait until the camera cools down. Only one time the camera where able to turn off (for a few attempts).
I haven't doing anything special with the camera.

I've recovered with elf, put the battery back, turned on and it seemed everything was ok. But when I disconnected form the pc and tried to turn on once again, the camera stucked as before.
Recovery made once again and still the same.
I don't know, maybe there is something wrong with the battery? It is fully charged, the voltage is 4.12.

Tried with another battery. Still the same.

When turning on without cable, the button is half lit with very low brightness like the voltage is lower.
When connecting the cable, the button is lit like during charging (full brightness) for a while and then remains half lit.

The camera was disassembled for a few days. I put the battery back and it is working. One day of recording and everything was ok. At night I plugged it for charging and next day the same problem.
I think there is a problem with power supply circuitry. Maybe there is something with internal capacitor (used for keeping the date)? I think the camera is able to turn on when this capacitor is discharged.
I have disassembled the board but I cannot localize such element. Can anyone help me?

GIVE US Firefy X!!!!

))))

It should have EIS up to 4K60fps, otherwise you can buy SJ8Pro that has it up to 4K30fps right now!!!!

Victor, just please don't forget about 90 degree lens + AV-out.

And don't make AV-out the stupidest way how SJCAM made it - needed to switch on every time after camera powered. SJCAM is really failed with that.
