You are well prepared for any kind of action with this high-performance true HD 1080p action camera with Wi-Fi capability and advanced GPS functions, the Garmin VIRB Elite. Featuring an outdoor-optimised low-power display for easy setup, viewfinder, and playback, with rugged housing and an enduring power supply (over three hours in 1080p), VIRB Elite secures reliable performance even during extended action adventures.
VIRB Elite features high-sensitivity GPS for data stamping and GPS-based ‘smart’ recording profiles like Skiing Mode, which automatically records your downhill runs and stops recording while you’re getting hot cocoa or waiting in the lift line. Use one of its many rock-solid mounts and put it virtually anywhere – the Garmin VIRB Elite has endless possibilities.
VIRB Elite was engineered for ease of use, with a large instant record slider switch on the side of the camera. The slide and click of the switch makes it easy to know that you are recording, even if you’re wearing gloves. The overall design of the camera is both sleek and rugged, which helps you integrate VIRB Elite into your activity without having to work around a blocky camera. So go ahead and ski, zipline, or even bobsled knowing you’ve got the shot.
VIRB Elite guarantees high-quality video and stills captured at high resolution, delivering crystal clear images for all kinds of dynamic action environments while offering a great shot. The VIRB includes a 16 MP CMOS sensor/image processor for multiple HD video modes, including 1080p at 30 FPS, 960p at 48 FPS, 720p at 60 FPS, 848×480 at 120 FPS, and WVGA at 120 FPS. Alongside this, the VIRB provides high audio performance with an internal microphone.
The VIRB Elite includes a 16 MP photo sensor with up to 6 FPS burst for still image capture. It provides continuous photo/photo burst and time lapse options (0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30, and 60 seconds) in either 16, 12, or 8 MP. The wide-view lens enables different shooting modes (wide, medium, or narrow) and upside down 180-degree rotation. The VIRB Elite has optimised picture quality with DIST (Digital Image Stabilisation) and LDC (Lens Distortion Correction) to ensure footage looks great, even before you start editing. Don’t lose a moment of video just to capture a photograph: VIRB Elite allows you to take still photos at the same time you are recording video with just a touch of a button on either your remote compatible Garmin device or on the camera itself.
The microSD card slot holds cards up to 64 GB (not included); one hour of recording at 1080p would use approximately 4 GB.
