Gyro 2.0 Stabilization

The amazing gyro stabilization on the Firefly 8S was one of the reason why it made it to my best cheap action cameras and if what Hawkeye claim on the Firefly 8SE, Gyro 2.0, is better than the Firefly 8S, the firefly 8SE definitely going to be a game changer.

Overall

From what I can see now, the Firefly 8SE surely looks like an improvement over the Firefly 8S with its touchscreen interface, raw photo capability and new lens which reduces purple fringing.
