Yet another interesting and affordable action camera has been released, the Git1 action camera, from producer GitUp. I couldn't wait to get my hands on one, and thanks to the developers I was able to try it out, while surfing, fishing, hiking, and just plain relaxing a summer trip to one of the wonderful beaches we have in Southern California. With an impressive Sony CMOS IMX322 image sensor and 160 angle of view, I had high hopes for the Git1 and I was not disappointed.
The Git1 arrived in a smartly-packaged box and, and as the pro model of the GitUp Git1 action camera, it comes with a waterproof case and several attachments. These attachments include the typical GoPro style ones such as mounting pads, handlebar grips, angled brackets, and screws. You'll notice I said GoPro style, because all these mounts are GoPro attachment compatible. That's a huge plus and something I'm a big fan of, and that many action cameras have adopted. It's nice to have a virtual universal standard when it comes to different mounting options, because they're just so many compatible accessories that you can purchase through sites like eBay, including chest mounts, head mounts, wrist mount, floating devices, and much more. The waterproof case snaps snugly around the GitUp Git1 action camera. The latch for it is found on the left hand side, sort of a unique attachment that isn't often seen with many other action camera models. There's only three buttons on the action camera overall, and only two of these can be accessed through the waterproof case. Those buttons are the power / options, wifi/options, and the start / stop recording buttons. I found the mounting points on this camera allowed me to easily attach it to gear I already had such as my favorite chest mount. These two mounts make it really easy to record all the fishing action that is taking place in front of you be it on the water, on a jetty, hiking or otherwise.
More after the jump!
