Because this is the Pro version of the package, there is a plethora of additional equipment that comes with the GitUp Git2 Pro camera. Everything from the camera with battery and waterproof casing, to bike mount, USB cable, a couple of adhesive tapes, a tripod, user manual and so on. The good thing is that GitUp Git2 Pro is the same size as GoPro cameras. You can use the additional kit for those cameras if you have any or you know someone who has.
Design and Build quality
GitUp Git2 Pro is built from high-quality plastic with the interesting texture. It is very compatible and light, weighing only 64gr. This kind of cameras are made for outdoor usage, so it has to be very sturdy and able to withstand an impact. The design is very straightforward and minimalistic, yet it seems very exciting.
On the front of the device, the 1.5-Inch display is located. Above the display, there is a logo of the company and LED in the far left corner.
On the back (or the front, depending how you look at it) there is power/mode button on the left and protruded camera on the right. Above the power button, there are two LEDs for signaling various tasks.
On the left side, there are USB connector, HDMI port, and microphone.The right side houses micro SD slot, another LED, and programmable button.
On the top of the device, there is a button for snapping the pictures nad videos as well as another LED. Bellow the GitUp Git2 Pro there is a removable cover that covers the battery. Buttons on the camera are pretty clicky and tactile feedback is excellent. As we have already mentioned, build quality is outstanding.
GitUp Git2 Pro Display
The screen on the GitUp Git2 Pro is LCD with only 1.5-Inch in diagonal, and it has the resolution of 960×240 pixels. This display isn’t meant for anything other than to see what you are shooting and is the desired object in the frame. Naturally, you can see pictures and videos you’ve taken on it, but the results are not going to be entertaining at all.
Central Processing Unit
GitUp Git2 Pro is running on Novatek NTK96660 SOC. Specific information about the chip is not that important. What matters is that this CPU is strong enough to cope with demanding video and picture processing without a hassle.
The part you all have been waiting for in this review. GitUp Git2 Pro is endowed with Sony’s Exmor IMX206 16-Megapixel sensor. There are many shooting modes with different resolutions and framerates. Highest resolution is [email protected], but it is achieved by interpolation. Besides that, we would like to mention [email protected] as well as [email protected] and plenty of other shooting modes. Recording quality is really high with minimal noise and plenty of details. Video stabilization is especially good even if its only software related while viewing angles can be either 170 or 120 degrees. There are several resolution modes for pictures and 16-Megapixel is the maximum. Pictures (as well as videos) have plenty of details, great white balance, and colors true to life. There is an RAW image mode for photography enthusiasts. Many of you will use this camera mainly for shooting the action videos, and that is the part where it excels. Naturally, you can use it for dash camera as well. Just attach it to your car and it will automatically start recording. Sound capture is magnificent, but it can even be better with the use of external microphones. All in all, this little guy is packing some serious “firepower”.

GitUp Git2 Pro action camera supports up to 64GB of storage with the use of micro SD cards. It is highly recommended that you use at least class 6 card. Optimally, it would be the best if you use class 10 or UHS-1 memory card with the device. 64GB is plenty of storage space, and it will be sufficient for most users.

OS and Connectivity Options
This device has proprietary OS built in, and it is very easy to learn how to use it. The good thing is that you can connect it with your smartphone with Android or iOS and use the phone as a remote. All you have to do is to install the application on your phone and connect via Wi-Fi. Unfortunately, only third party app called FinalCam can be used, but it is not that good. We are hoping that GitUp will soon release its official app for several operating systems. When it comes to connectivity GitUp Git2 Pro is a really capable device. You can connect it to a computer or TV via USB or HDMI port.
GitUp Git2 Pro has removable 950mAh lithium-ion battery. Battery seems minuscule on paper, but it is sufficient enough when it comes to actual recording. The battery is good enough for 90 minutes of 1080p video recording, and that is quite right.
There are plenty of additional accessories that come with GitUp Git2 Pro action camera.
- Waterproof casing for the camera – with it, you can shoot underwater as deep as 30m and create some original and creative videos.
- Bike mount – for mounting the camera on your bicycle or motorbike and creating some crazy action shots.
Of course, there are many other pieces of equipment, but these are some of the most important ones. There is also a wrist remote for controlling your camera from your wrist. Very practical accessory but you have to buy it separately.
You can buy it on a link we provided bellow.
