      CA in 8S is too high to be fully reduced by built-in camera filters.

        This would be very useful. Will log/flat color profile be available in next MOD version? By the way, thank you very much for all work you have done so far to make Firefly better action camera.

        I think the FF8SE shoots almost perfect vids now with my latest MODx custom firmware. I don't have any recent GoPro cams to compare, but the Firefly camera flashed with my fw should be at least not worse than the HERO5.

        A couple of daylight samples:

          Hi Nutsey, I have a Thieye T5 Edge (new version of T5e) and I wanted to know if this firefly 8S have chance to work with my cam, which have the same hardware configuration.
          It looks that your firmware is a huge upgrade for the image quality.

          Thank you for your answer and your work.

            Hi,

            Thieye T5 Edge (=Thieye E7 with slightly different front panel) cam has nothing to do with Ambarella A12-based T5/T5e cams as it uses the iCatch V50 chipset inside. So, unfortunately you can't use my custom FWs with your T5 Edge camera.

              Sure. I will release the 8S version as well after releasing my MODx for the 8SE.

            Hi, I'm new and beginner about action cam. Can someone help me please?
            I bought a Firefly 8SE, motorcycle tested, fully satisfied about quality and stabilization anti-vibration ... happy purchase I tried to do the upgrade but I have the wrong firmware. I only have the power button flashing slightly and continuously and does not react to the ignition. I tried with Direct Usb, following some tread, but the camera is not recognized.
            I thank everyone for any advice.
            Sorry for the language.
            Roberto

                Hello nutsey,

                what is the correct way to use your modded firmware ? Shall I apply the official firmware updates first upto 101 and then your modded 101 ?

                Thank you for answering

                  You can install it like a normal firmware update.

                  By the way, I'm planning to release MOD2 which was used for the latest tests in this thread very soon.

                Oh, cool ! :-) My camera is on the way and I expect it to arrive in 20 days +-. I will keep an eye on this thread then. Thanks
