    My V8s firmware collection and AmbaUSB recovery tool - https://yadi.sk/d/FshctXkSmo8Rdw
    The latest Winrar or 7-zip is needed.

    Problem with Eken is, all they're doing is mix and matching components for "new" cams
    they are not keeping up with menu options - like other cams, essentially just EV +/- and a touch screen

    No, more likely V8 and H6s are similar

    H5s, now .... H5s plus ... Seems more like H8pro. (Although I can't remember offhand exact specs)
    -H5s plus now has front screen,

    EIS on 4k/30 . ...this has been removed from specs
    2.7k/60 now (I think)

    that looks like the a V8s or a remade H8 Plus. but another H5s (no "plus") from Banggood looks like this


    regardless, I am avoiding to buy any Eken cameras.... mainly because there are so many other and possibly better choices

    Eken keeps producing Frankenstein action cams. Here comes Eken H5s which is based on V8s main PCB and uses sensor PCB with IMX078 from H8 Pro.

    Then look at the Xiaomi Mijia
    Raw and jpg simultaneously
    It's under development still but lots of work being done
    All main functions stable.

    With coupon can get for about US$80 ...
    MINUS waterproof case though
    I major downside, but not a deal breaker ... No HDMI connection

    HACKABLE with scripts (how much is beyond me sorry)

    yeah. i can understand.
    but often the H9 video looks like Andoer/Wimius/Campark/F60 (Allwinner V3) video.
    I don't want that anymore, but I want something at least a little better like a Soocoo C30 or Firefly 7s (with Novatek)

    yeah. I'm using march 20170301 firmware in my H8 plus. i can't notice the difference between that and the factory STD 201702xx (whatever the date was).

    and when looking for other nice cameras, don't leave out real SJCAM with Ambarella chips.

    Not too great a loss..... since you've already got one ... LoL


    probably because they aren't selling (?)

    Eken are known for the H9 @ it's price point, people don't want to pay more than US$50,
    ones who are after a better cam, are presumably looking elsewhere .... especially at brands who have a development team / community (?)

    yeah better to switch to thieye or firefly for the future. On the plus side, the march firmware of h8 plus seems almost stable.

    wow. i really do see a difference. I guess Eken is trying to sell bad cameras at lower prices to the masses. H8s with Ambarella chip is probably another cheap example. Oh why did they discontinue their good cameras like H9 Plus / H8 Plus...

    schnurbi - bad like "good". or bad like bad?
    yeah, share unedited / unprocessed VIDEO samples please
    you can use Avidemux to stream cut the video files. select output format mp4 or mkv, and select "copy" for video, and you may need to select an Audio codec such as "AAC FDK".
Working...
