Hawkeye 4K Thumb

At first look, the Hawkeye 4K Thumb camera is an excellent choice for those that find the GoPro too big or expensive but still what to record stabilized UHD videos. Weighting just 15.5 grams, it can be installed on almost any drone size. In the case of micro FPV drones, Gyroflow stabilization is a real alternative to built-in electronic image stabilization (EIS) such as Hypersmooth and Rocksteady.

Gyroflow is a free post-processing video stabilization tool, which uses gyro data for accurate motion compensation. With the help of precise lens calibrations, rolling shutter correction, and tweakable stabilization algorithms, it can produce gimbal-like stabilization with no or minimal weight penalty. The fact that it is a time-consuming process, is a major disadvantage of gyro stabilization technology.

Most standalone 4K action cameras tend to be heavy due to their large sensor, LCD screen, battery, and additional components. Instead, “naked” cameras,…
