Firefly Q6 4K review


HawKeye Firefly Q6 is a very small and light weight action cam, just 45 grams.  It’s basically a Firefly 6s but in a smaller package. So it is perfect for drones as it is primarily designed for FPV and model aircraft flying, but it’s so small and light that it’s easy to velcro to a helmet for mountain biking, paragliding etc. To use it as a FPV camera you need to connect the included AV cable to a video-transmitter that needs to be bought separately, which in turn streams live video to your target device.

It features a Sony Exmor sensor and Novatek 96660 chip and can record 4k @ 24 fps, 2.5K @ 30fps, 1080 @ 60 fps, 720 @ 120 fps etc. and produces very good quality video and audio despite it’s small size.

It’s easy to use and does the usual stuff including time lapse, periodic photos, dash cam loop recording, and has a good choice of settings.

It also features a built-in gyro for stable videos.

Firefly Q6 features

This mini action camera can record 4K video at a decent 24fps. It comes equipped with a 120-degree wide-angle lens, a Novatek 96660 chipset (the same used by Gitup Git2, SJ5000X, Firefly 6S, Elephone Explorer Pro and many other action cams),

It features a Sony IMX078 image sensor (the same of Firefly 6S) that can capture still images (upto 16MP) too. In addition, you also get a 0.7-inch OLED screen.

As far as recording options, you get loop recording and time-lapse, along with a few custom settings.

It uses a 800mAh battery that is claimed to last for about 60min of video recording at 4K 24fps. In the box, you get a USB cable, an AV cable, the user manual and the action cam.
