1,2,3 & 6 have had some adjustment in a photo editor. Nothing on a pixel by pixel basis though, just global adjustments like contrast, the photos are genuine Gitup G3 photos, except 4,5,6,7,8 & 11 which are frame grabs from 1080 60fps video.Are these photos edited? Looks too good from an action cam.

Some of them are intentionally taken in difficult high contrast / low contrast situations to see how it copes. On the photos there is a bit of odd colour in the corners due to using a prototype with the camera not correctly calibrated for the lens, the video frames do not show this because the 16:9 frame does not use the corners of the lens.
4 (cherries) and 5 (flowers) are video frames with the video on maximum zoom setting, gives a much narrower field of view and very little fisheye distortion.
6 (cloudy train) is a frame grab @ 7PM under cloudy sky with the train doing 60-70mph, that has had most adjustments to bring out the details in the darker areas.
No, it makes sense to show what it can do! Some of the images above are original unedited images, the cherries, standing stone at sunset, the ferns, others would have wanted some editing even with a big professional DSLR, in fact especially with a big professional DSLR, although then you would be editing raw photos with professional editing software, these are all just jpg photos/frame grabs edited with free software, although it does have a raw mode.I thought so. Wouldn't it make sense to show the unedited photos rather than edited version?
I would have to disagree with that. This shows what you can do and not the cam. Most dslr reviews wouldn't have edited the photos when doing review.
Read the top title again.If this is a photo album rather than review then that makes sense.
The top title is "Gitup G3 photo tread"
@Nigel uploaded some photo without any description and let it up to people to interpret the photo.
@gngan you ask if the photo was edit, very good questions and Nigel answer them with a detail description, what kind of editing he had done to the photo.
gngan you start to bring the word "review" up. Don't start to make it to something it not is.

Most DSLR reviews will be interested mainly in raw images and they need to be edited to some extent before you can even see them, you have to choose how much in the way of shadow detail and highlight detail you include during conversion to visible form.I would have to disagree with that.

All the images in my first post are from a prototype Gitup G3, the images from the production cameras should be even better although of course that is not guaranteed, and as seen in the Git2 photo thread it may be necessary to use a photo editor to make the most of the camera. If anyone does get mislead then it probably has more to do with the experience/competence of the photographer rather than the camera, not everyone goes up a mountain in 36km/h winds because that is when lighting conditions are most interesting! The prototype G3 camera really is better than most action cameras, in fact having looked at that Yi review it may beat some bigger and more expensive cameras too!If a normal person coming in and see such stunning photos then he maybe mislead.
