    How to reach the lens:

    There is no need to disassemble the whole camera body in case you need to fix the focus. The lens protection rim can be easily removed providing access to the lens.

      In order to unbrick your H8s you need to ask Eken to share ELF firmware file for your model.

    Is there the possibility of getting the firmware mod for the Plus version?
    Also: is it possible to change to 4k25p? That would be awesome for us here in PAL land!

        It works! Thanks so much!
        Question: purple/blueish tint in shadows. normal?
        Maybe correction of chromatic aberrations should stay enabled for this lens though. quite extreme :-D

        nutsey - please see my updated post about this cam on page 2 of this thread. Now...I'm looking for firmware or something that I can do in the camera to reduce AUDIO noise ☻

      Stock:

      Hacked:

      color seems off. dynamic range and sharpness changes are great.
      Chromatic aberrations are of course quite extreme.
      Is it possible to do something about the color? Maybe Blacklevel corrections?

          I have established the modified firmware. Thanks a bunch! The saturation and clarification of objects in a shadow pleases. In the course of testing on my H8Plus defect was found. In the mode 2.7K in case of installation of the negative AE values the camera freezes up and only reset helps. Than brightness of lighting of subjects a high probability of the fact that the camera will hang up is more. I use the card of the 10th class U1, tried U3, the same effect. In other permissions the camera works well in case of any illuminance and in case of all AE values. On a stock firmware the my camera works in the mode 2.7K in case of any AE value.
