      Howdy. I got my F69 from Aliexpress ( link here http://ali.onl/Bwg ) today in the mail for ~$54 USD. It gets quite warm when using QHD 2k and UHD 4k modes, and the metal usb/hdmi ports are hot but not has hot as an Eken H8 Plus. Otherwise I haven't tested it much yet, and I will post more details later...

      Firmare version is
      Code:
      96660 / F68
      201600331
      But the "F68" camera model looks different. and I'm looking for compatible firmware updates for this camera.

        Note that your F69 lacks the QC sticker which usually covers the center screw for other HT10 cams.

        nutsey - lack of QC sticker - yes, you were right about that! There was not any sticker to be found at all.
        I have opened a dispute with the seller on Aliexpress for a refund ~52 $ USD.

        *UPDATE* My dispute proposal for a ~%75 refund worked. I got $40 back from the seller of out $52 that I paid. I still have the camera, but it's disassembled and some wires became detached. Maybe someday I will try to repair it and reassemble it. but right now i don't have soldering iron or any nice tools.

      "Pro" without remote, and "Pro 2" with remote. Note that there are also several different firmware release "Versions" along with different dates.

        The F68 camera I received from Amazon accepts SooCoo C30 V2.0 firmware confirmed no issues I could find with normal use. Mine was branded ODRVM. The C30 firmware actually improved the gyro and video color imho, but unfortunately not the audio.

        If you try to put the C30 firmware on this cam just note that I couldn't track down the original firmware so you'll be stuck with the results. Do so at your own risk, as your camera may be different than mine.

        Pretty sure this is the same as the F68 on AliExpress, Gearbest, Banggood, etc.

        The official Soocoo site http://soocoo.cc redirects to a new domain http://www.soocooplus.com and this has new site content.

        For now, firmware updates are available from this link http://www.soocooplus.com/c-series-firmware

        V20170308 (R) is the latest as of this writing.

          Hello to all!

          I would like to ask if we add a List of known Clones that are verified to work with the C30 Firmware.
          I Think this would be good Idea since yesterday someone started a tread with a new LCD-Type with incompatible Driver.

          To avoid Confusion of the individual Cameras and due to the Parts switching of some Manufacturers it would be good
          if anyone ho flashed their Cameras successfully would add the following Information to a post containing the following:

          Brand name of the Camera,
          Shop or Sellers name if from a Marketplace,
          some Pictures of the Housing,
          Initial Firmware-Version-Number,
          flashed Firmware-Version-Number,

          and if so, additional Information of Features that work or dont work with the new Firmware.

          I think this way we could minimize bricked or unusable Cameras because of incompatible Firmwares.

          What do You think ???

            Good idea. Here's my (former, but gave it away as a gift) F68. I flashed Soocoo FW because while using the original FW, the video quality was so badly pixelated / blocky, but Soocoo FW improved the video quality only a little. So I gave it all away to a friend.

              I got this Soopash SP11 Novatek 96660 / IMX078 camera for ~$42 USD. Here is my transaction shot from Aliexpress - https://www.dropbox.com/s/r65efj3h9o...ze%29.pdf?dl=0

              As you see, the original firmware is newer 20170923. But there is no "Gyro" option in the menu. I wonder if I could flash official Soocoo C30 firmware, and still see the LCD normally. What do you think ?

              I bought a camera called Hieha Action Camera 4K http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showt...#entry69703236
              the firmware was sent to me by the seller. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7M...ew?usp=sharing
              The camera quickly discharges the battery
              The chamber physically lacks a gyroscope
              Do you have native firmware for your camera?

                  Did you try to install the C30R Firmware, an if you did, does everything work as expected?
                  And: what firmware-Date did you have before you tried?
                  Bought the Camera myself this week from Amazon for 60€ since it was the cheapest NTK96660 with IMX078 that I could find in Germany.


                  nutsey

                  I read that U are very active in NTK96660-Hacking, Did you see anything related to Raw-Image-Capturing in the Firmware for C30 or similar 96660-Cams?
                  I wonder if the Code is already there or if the Guys of SJCam wrote their very own firmware.
                  Would be pretty cool if there was the possibility for Raw-Pictures since the IMX078 was also used in my beloved Pentax Q which I still love.
                  I would like to make a Stereo-Rig out of two Hieha H68 and the Ability of taking Raw Pictures would be a great addition.

                    khromv - please share all firmware that you get with us here, especially if you get Soopash Sp11 firmware MuhanadY may be able to use the C30R firmware. I want a 100% original copy of Soopash Sp11 firmware, because I want to try Soocoo C30 fw and be able to revert to Soopash firmware.

                  Is there any chance to trigger two or more of the firefly´s or Git`s simultaneously thru a remote without fiddling with Arduino and simultaneously get RAW-Pictures?
                  I am not 100% sure because its Bluetooth and has to be paired to the Camera.
                  Did you try it or know somebody that successfully tried it??
