The Gitup G3 Duo is a few years old at this point, and now with a lower price (at least in Canada) it represents a fantastic value. If the price is over $80 USD, this camera may be too expensive for the video quality unless you specifically need some of the special features it offers. Those include a secondary camera unit that can be hooked up to the main unit and a GPS module – interesting features for adventure trekkers, motorcyclists and quad/atv riders. The base unit itself, the only component tested in this review, is more like an ordinary action camera. It supports a high level of customization, is easy to use and has decent video quality overall, making it a compelling option when the prices is under $100.
It’s difficult to choose between these two cameras and a lot of it comes down to what you’re looking for in a camera. If you’re looking for something straightforward with decent video quality out of camera and easier operation, buy the M20. If you’re interested in a camera that can be tweaked and customized and has better audio, go for the Git2.
This is a firmware test with the new Git2 firmware. Hopefully it fixes the colour balance problems I have experienced!
