Having tested different settings, I have a question as to if my results are the norm for this product.
I’ve seen Frostie’s post (https://www.innovv.com/forum/innovv-k2/modified-firmwares-with-higher-bitrates) indicating that clearly someone saw a need for improvement, but my past experience is mixed.
I used to do videos on an old Canon PowerShot which recorded at 640 x 480 @ 30 FPS. It was good for its time. I tried the GoPro at that time, and video was horrible with coding artifacts. I eventually went with the VIO POV which gave video quality equal or superior to my Canon. Now, comparing the K2 to the VIO POV, we’re talking 1280 x 720 even at lowest resolution compared to 720 x 480. Clearly there is more detail, but I’m not sure how much “chop” and “blur” is normal on the K2.
Here are links to test footage....

I tried to retain optimal quality by coping the raw footage to my PC (app to phone -> second app to copy to iPhone photo directory -> download to PC) then using video production software to convert to H.264 MPEG while retaining resolution and frame rate. I find uploading directly from iPad to YouTube introduces compression factors that diminish the quality of the uploaded footage.
How does this footage compare? Thoughts?
