Garmin has launched a new action camera today priced at $499 which takes the form of the Virb Ultra 30, which is capable of capturing smooth 4K Ultra HD video footage thanks to its included image stabilisation technology.
Garmin has combined the best features of the previous Virb action camera, such the ability to capture and overlay data like speed or altitude onto your footage and create an action camera that is a similar size to the GoPro Hero 4, yet provides extra functionality.
The Garmin Virb Ultra 30 action camera is fitted with three axis image stabilisation that works across all modes on the action camera including slow motion, 4K, and HD 1080p recording. Check out the video below to learn more about its recording capabilities and overlay features.
Features of the new Garmin action camera include :
– Ultra HD 4K/30fps footage with 1.75-inch touchscreen display that lets you see what is being recorded
– 3-axis image stabilization captures smooth and steady video, no matter the terrain
– Shoot hands-free using voice control to start/stop recording, take photos or remember moments
– Built-in sensors and GPS capture G-Metrix™ data to prove how far, how high and how fast you went
– High-sensitivity microphone captures clear audio in and out of the waterproof case
Can your action camera do this — record on command? VIRB Ultra 30 can. This waterproof3 ultra HD action camera features voice control so you can tell the camera to start, stop and “remember that.” That means more hands-free selfies when you’re looking fearless — and easier editing when the action’s all done. It’s small, weighs next to nothing, and it’s ready to take on any dare or adventure, thanks to the included waterproof case.
Your active lifestyle is about more than just video and audio. Capture relevant performance data with G-Metrix technology, including speed, altitude, G-force and even heart rate5. Built-in Garmin GPS (10 Hz) and other sensors automatically record data so you can easily overlay gauges and graphs onto your footage to prove how far, how high and how fast you went. Other compatible Garmin sensors and devices pair with your VIRB to extend camera control and provide detailed, measurable data tailored to your activity. Check the Compatible Devices and Accessories tabs for a list of compatible products and sensors.
