Actioncams compared - Firefly 6s, SJcam M10+, SJ5000+, Xiaomi Yi, Foxeer Legend1, Eken H9, Gopro3+

Over the last months I was looking for 60fps capeable actioncams that are cheap AND good quality. Some guys just buy a Gopro (350$ or more!) and hope nothing bad happens to the expensive cam.
The last addition to my nice collection of cams is the Firefly 6s. Find all the details below!

1. Firefly 6S
2. SJCAM M10+
3. SJCAM SJ5000+
4. Xiaomi Yi
5. EKEN H9
6. Foxeer Legend1
7. Gopro3+ Black
