Affordable Hi-Tech Camera Performance

Far cheaper than any GoPro the Firefly 8S offers extreme value for money

The Hawkeye FireFly 6S and Hawkeye FireFly 7S Sports Action Cameras have been our sports action cameras of choice for a number of years now. The FireFly 6S Action Camera has travelled halfway around the World and has never ever dissapointed delivering amazing video that is comparable with any GoPro Sports Action Camera ever produced at a fraction of the cost. Having tested many sports action cameras over the last few years for Banggood one tends to be a little complacent when a new model is released not so with the FireFly 8S from Banggood. This model is sure to put another dent in the dwindling fortunes of GoPro, priced at around the $120 mark it’s sure to become a best seller.
