HD 2k, FPV Ready and with excellent digital
The Git2 FPV Sports camera is one of the latest and lightest high
definition camera breakthrough that caught the attention of casual
photographers. Weighing only 65g, with a 1.5 inches LCD viewing screen. The LCD
allows you to see what you are filming; at times you only get one chance on a
shot, and not seeing what you are filming, can be a disappointment if you missed
the only shot.
Added to version 2 is a Gyro Chip digital image stabilization.
When this feature is enabled, it allows for the camera to shift the digital
images from frame to frame to minimize jerky motions. I am actually quite amazed
with how good the stabilization is. Like most digital gyro, the video images may
lose some sharpness and tend to be softer on the edges, so my suggestion is
limit the use, know when to use it.

The Git2 manages to find room to include Wi-Fi capabilities that
can be set-up if you have a smartphone or tablet that supports wifi. In
addition, you can connect your choice of a 3.5mm external stereo microphone.
It is supported with a wide range of accessories, that makes this camera
attachable to any sports equipment.
As a FPV Pilot, I look for AV out, and Git2 is AV ready (it uses the same USB
cable as a GoPro), the angle of View can be adjusted to 170°and 120°, giving a
wider field of view during aerial filming.
To the left of the camera, you have the microphone, positioned to the side to
help reduce direct wind noise. A HDMI port for HD video out. A mini usb port
that supports Audio video or an external microphone adapters and is also used
for charging the battery.
The front button is the power on and off button, to the right is the setting
selection button and the top button is the record and selection button.
The Git2 is capable of shooting at high definition, a maximum 21-60P at 24
frames per second, 14-40P at 30 and10-80P at 60 frames per second.
It comes packed with features such as loop recording, audio level, time stamp on
and off, time lapse, self timer, white balance control, custom value
adjustments, menu button functions, exposure values, color preferences, gyro
stabilization, a Wide Dynamic Range to capture at different contrast ratios,
slow motion, sharpness, spot metering, adjustable field of view with narrow and
wide angles, motion detection for auto start, and a g-sensor for automatically
capturing video when a vehicle is bump. In addition, you can remotely record a
video from a watch-like remote control.
The git2 has slight chromatic aberration, a "purple tint" that is visible on the
edges of images with high-contrast photos. However, in fairness all lenses have
some form of aberration and it also appears on the GoPro cameras. This is a
common problem in lenses when colors are incorrectly refracted (bent) by the
lens, resulting in a mismatch at the focal point where the colors do not combine
as they should. For me, this is not a price breaker for this camera and you may
not even notice it.
We did several low lighting videos, and i am quite pleased with results as shown
on the Christmas Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Walt Disney.
