Gitup Git2P Review
Gitup has made a new action camera, the Gitup Git2P, it’s presented as a new model of the Gitup Git 2 sharing many features with it and a similar price. The Gitup Git2P isn’t meant to replace the old one, it is just a better version ”pro”, the Git2P brings some differences in the technical specifications which we will see in this blog.
After seeing some great reviews by users that have bought this camera and owning one myself I’ve decided to review it and explain what is so special about this low budget action camera. Is this camera worth buying? Will this camera suit best your style of videos you’re gonna record?
Well, the Gitup Git2P is definitely a camera worth buying if you’re looking for a low budget action cam, it can record up to 2K at 24 fps, and 1080p at 60fps, and its renewed the Panasonic sensor with a new lens with 90º viewing angle and the other version with the typical GoPro classic look at 170º.
The Git2P is well built with good quality plastics and it has a black color, it doesn’t look any different from the Gitup Git2. It feels pretty durable and with the waterproof case, it can go down up to 30m. Its dimensions are 59 x 30 x 41 mm and it weighs 66g.
On the front, we can see the lens, two LEDs, one for turning the camera on and off, and the other for recording and the mode change button or the accept button. On the upper side, there is the start recording button similar to most cameras, on the left side, there is a microSD compartment slot and the settings button and on the right side, there is the Micro-USB cable and the mini HDMI cable.
It also comes with great packaging with all of the features written on the box. The Gitup is inside of the box in its waterproof case, the box also contains a lot of different accessories as well as the charging cable.
This action cam uses a 1000 mAh lithium-ion battery, which means that it’s battery life is able to record for 140 minutes without interruption that is 2 hours and 20 minutes (without Wi-Fi and with the screen OFF), about 9 minutes more than with the 950 milliampere battery of the Gitup Git2.
The battery is situated at the bottom, where there is a cover that gives access to the battery. You can also always buy separate batteries for it and change them whenever the first one runs out.
As I said, this camera uses a Panasonic 16 MP sensor and the Novatek 96660 chip that together make impeccable recordings and photos come out up to a real 2K resolution and with a 170-degree fisheye effect and a 90-degree depends on what version you buy.
The Git2P mounts a 5G2P lens with f / 2.5, compared to the Git2 f / 2.8. It can record in 2160p recording at 24 fps, 1080p at 60fps. It supports up to 128gb even though we recommend 64gb at least.
A cool feature about the Git2P is that is has a lot of settings, which some people who want to tweak settings are gonna appreciate it. You can find settings such as shutter speed, ISO, white balance, metering, and many more.
Like the other cameras from Gitup the Git2P comes with a smartphone app, the new Gitup Git 2P has WiFi connectivity that allows us to connect through the new Gitup App for Action cameras.
The Gitup Git2P comes with gyro stabilization setting located in the menu to help stabilize the footage, although it doesn’t do an amazing job it does pretty good. With the gyro stabilization, the camera automatically detects each bump during recording and stabilizes it.
If you want to record with a very smooth and stable recording we recommend getting a gimbal. The gimbal is the ultimate stabilizer of cameras. So when you are recording a video, it will be perfectly smooth. You can easily move and record without having to worry that the footage obtained will not be stable.
Pros and Cons
|It can take 16MP pictures||The phone app is not that good|
|Price||Needs a case for underwater|
|Decent stabilization||Mediocre audio quality|
|RAW and HDR|
|Pretty good battery life|
|You can buy an external microphone|
As for the photography, the Gitup Git2P can take pictures up to 16 megapixels (4608 x 3456 px), the quality is good and also taking into account that we have the possibility to change the ISO and the exposure time with some other settings, with patience we can work interesting images.
The Gitup also has the option of Time Lapse in Photo mode, something I greatly appreciate and the possibility of putting the resolutions of the pictures in 4:3 or 16:9 format.
It’s also capable of taking pictures in RAW format in or in JPEG format.
It’s capable to record up to 1080p full HD to 60 frames per second, and it’s able to record for 140 minutes without interruption that is 2 hours and 20 minutes. Just like its predecessor the Gitup has an image stabilizer.
With the new firmware updates, we now have the possibility to modify the ISO value of the videos, the format of the videos in this sports camera is mp4, using the codec H264.
The video resolutions of the Gitup Git2P are the following:
- 4K – 24fps
- 2K – 30fps
- 1080p – 60fps
- 720p – 120fps
Should you buy it?
This is a great low-budget action camera but also with great quality on its pictures and videos. It can record up to 2K resolution which is great along with many other great features.
You can connect a remote control and a microphone which is great depending on what you want to do and how you want to record, for example, if you want to record a vlog. And it’s compatible with most accessories like all of the GoPro accessories. It uses pretty cheap but decent quality batteries.
The negative things are, the screen isn’t very big so it is a little hard to see sometimes and it could be larger, and the smartphone app does not work well.
I definitely recommend getting this camera if you’re just getting started with action cameras or recording in general or if you’re upgrading from one that was worse but being a low-budget action camera don’t expect to have GoPro quality or high-end brand quality.
