  1. Very useful review, thanks! What is the firmware version on the cameras? I’m very interested in a comparison between these cameras with the latest sj5000x v1.3 firmware

    • SJCam: 1.2.5
      GitUp: 1.3

      Since I published the review both cameras have updated firmware to address many of the issues I mentioned: both address the blocky artifacts, SJcam addresses the Gyro, Gitup addresses the smeared frames. SJcam’s 1080p60 video is still slightly smoother; Gitup has better photos. I’ll post an updated review once I have had more time with the updates.

  2. Any idea when you will publish the update?
    Just trying to determine which to buy.
    What about their respective apps, are they comparable?
    Thanks
    Roderick

  3. Do you think the SJcam firmware update makes the gyro comprable to the Git2?
