GitUp Git2 action camera.

Got my Git2 cam today. At first glance it seems to be a pretty nice piece of hardware.

  • It has a tiny screen on its back. Rather small, but still useful.
  • It has Sony IMX206 sensor exactly like so much popular Xiaomi Yi cam has.
  • It's powered by Novatek NT96660 chipset and it doesn't "overprocess" the picture like Ambarella A7 does.
  • Git2's h264 video encoder is quite tricky. Comparing to Yi (defaults @1296p30) it provides slightly greater bitrate but twice higher keyframe interval leading to visible blocking artifacts. 
  • Using p60/p120/p240 modes with indoor/low light is useless because the cam records 30 fps duplicating frames to the target framerate. 
  • The lens is just great. It provides impressive resolution and colors though having some issue concerning lens flare and chromatic aberration effects.
  • Due to its case design Git2 is compatible with GoPro accessories, moreover it has mini-usb connector for those of you who prefer to record audio with an external mic (supporting both mono and stereo).
UPD 2016-06-14: Git2 cam greatly strode towards (as one Git1 cam did) with actual FW updates. Seems like GitUp is going to get its maximum from HW and I'm pretty glad to take a feasible part in this process. Well done things are still here and need me to do some stuff.
