Garmin's New VIRB Action Camera


Garmin VIRB

Garmin has introduced the new action camera VIRB. The VIRB is a true HD 1080p action camera with built-in Chroma™ display, up to 3 hours of battery life, and a rugged waterproof design. Easily film exactly what you see. With a 2000mAh rechargeable Lithium-ion battery Garmin claims the unit will last up to 3 hours, recording at 1080p resolution. And if you’re still moving, this power pack swaps out easy so the show can go on.

Rugged + Waterproof
Aerodynamic and built tough to survive bumps, drops, and hits in air, on land, and in water – for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter. Optional dive case protects to 50 meters.

1.4″ Chroma Display
Hi-res color screen shows exactly what you’re filming. Easily set-up, preview and play back. The display uses the sun’s light and stays on while the camera is on, but barely sips your battery. It’s also your window to the menu, making quick work of setting changes.

WideVü Lens
Catch your action, up close and personal or big-picture panoramic. This 9-element glass lens shoots in three modes: Wide, Medium and Narrow.

VIRB Elite adds accelerometer, altimeter, and high-sensitivity GPS, allowing you to include the data that matters to you. While Sky Diving, chart your pulse before, during and after a jump. A pilot can chart altitude and speed. A custom recording profile called “Ski mode” can use the sensors to automatically film the entire sky run.
