Everyone loves action cameras. They help get those crazy shots of sports, fly-overs, and even can work as surveillance cams. But probably the main reason why not everyone has one is because they usually cost a lot of cash. In fact, GoPros, probably the most popular action cams on the planet, can sell for anywhere between $150 all the way up to around $500 if you want the best picture. This is absolutely crazy. You’re not buying a DSLR or a professional video camera for movie production or something. You just want something to strap on your helmet and start riding your dirt bike. So why spend that much money when you can get something that’s just as good as a GoPro but at a small fraction of the price?
My friends, meet the Firefly 6S 4K Wi-Fi Sport Camera.
Yes, I realize that name isn’t as catchy as GoPro, but it’s not what it’s called that matters. It’s how it can perform and stacks up to its competition. And by the way, it performs in both these ares very well.
For starters, you’re getting an ultra-durable design which can withstands drops, dunks in water, and accidental fall-offs if you’re going fast with it. However, this shouldn’t be a problem with its ultra-secure clips on the back. The entire camera is also smaller than your average credit card. An OLED display is present to tell you if you’re recording or not, how much battery you’ve got left, and what you’re recording in.
Speaking of recording, camera wise, this puppy’s got a 16MP sensor right on the front with a 140 degree wide-angle lens, gyro sensor, and image stabilization. With this sensor, you can record in VGA resolution (640×480), 720p (1280×720), 1080p (1920×1080), 2K (2560×1440), and a giant 4K resolution (4096×2160) at 30 frames per second. I’m sure this spec will attract many to this camera as 4K is huge nowadays.
With the built-in 1600mAh battery (which is removable, by the way), you can record up to 80 minutes of 1080p video at 60fps or 4K video at 24fps. This should be just enough time to get all the shots you’re gonna need. Oh, and to store all your #crispy shots, you can insert up to a 64GB microSD card.
To view your content live as you record it, you can download the Firefly app to your iOS or Android device and connect your action cam to the same Wi-Fi network as your phone or tablet. Then, you can watch up to 1080p video you’re currently recording for a live preview and more precision. This I”m sure will be greatly appreciated by buyers of this camera.
A ton of other features like HDMI output, a microUSB port, HDR, and more are also present. But enough of talking about the camera. You’re probably asking yourself, “My gosh! How much does this thing cost?!” And I’m happy to report that over on GearBest, you can grab the Firefly 6S 4K Wi-Fi Sport Camera for just $77.99.
Let that sink in for a second. A 4K action cam that lasts up to 80 minutes on a full charge only costs $77.99. That, my friends, is what we call a steal.
By the way, this price is only gonna be in effect for 3 more days, so you better hurry and pick up your 4K action cam at just $77.99 today!
