The display lets you easily set-up shots, playback video and adjust menu settings without detaching the camera from its mount. To start filming, you simply move the over-sized slider switch forward. Record at 1080p for over 3 hours with the rechargeable lithium-ion battery. And video enhancement features like Digital Image Stabilization and Lens Distortion Correction ensure footage looks great, even before you start editing.
VIRB records true HD 1080p video that lets you relive every minute of your adventure in full, high-contrast, undistorted detail. In addition to 1080p@30fps, you adjust resolution and filming speed for crisp, dramatic slow motion up to 120fps. And it’s all seen through our WideVü lens and processed through 16 megapixel CMOS sensor for the highest quality video, even before you start editing it. Multiple HD video modes: 1080p@30fps, 960p@30/48fps, 720p@30/60fps, 848x480@120fps.
1.4" Chroma Display
Why mash a button and hope you got the shot when you can set-up, preview and playback video on a built-in, full-color chroma display? The 1.4" display on the VIRB is also your window into the menu settings. Check your shot before you leap, choose slow motion or even switch between video and still photography. It’s always on the screen and the screen is always on (but uses minimal power).
Long Battery Life
VIRB features a class-leading 2000 mAh lithium-ion battery that has been tested at 3 hours recording at 1080p. Which means there’s a good chance you’ll tire out before the battery does. Recharging is as easy as connecting it to your computer or plugging it in to a wall. Extend your filming time by carrying a replacement battery (sold separately) on your all-day adventure.
Sleek and Easy-to-use
VIRB 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 into your activity without having to work around a blocky camera. So go ahead and ski or zip-line or even bobsled knowing you got the shot.
Control VIRB Remotely
VIRB uses ANT+™ wireless connectivity to enable you to use your compatible Garmin product like fenix™, Oregon® and Edge® as remote controls. And late 2013, we’ll have a dedicated remote control device working with the same ANT+ connectivity, so you don’t have to take your hands off the handlebars or remove the camera from the mount to stop and start recording to take still images.
Digital Image Stabilization and More
With the Digital Image Stabilization feature engaged, VIRB adds a little stability to bumpy rides and adventures so you can share a smoother video with your friends. Plus Lens Distortion Correction (LDC) works to enhance the quality of your video, even before you start editing.
High Definition Photography
VIRB is a high-powered digital photo camera too. With 16 megapixel photo capture LDC to make your photos sharper, clearer and less distorted. Shoot 16 megapixel, 12 megapixel or 8 megapixel as a single shot (on-camera button or controlled remotely) or choose Photo Burst (6/s) or Time Lapse (0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30, 60 seconds). And it’s all processed through a 16 megapixel CMOS processor for high quality images.
Shoot Video and Photographs at the Same Time
Don’t lose a moment of video just to capture a photograph. VIRB allows you to take still photos at the same time you are recording video with just a touch of the button on either your remote compatible Garmin device or on the camera itself.
Editing Made Easy
VIRB Edit is free desktop editing software that you can download to your computer for intuitive, robust video editing that takes advantage of Garmin inter-compatibility. For example, VIRB Edit can automatically match video and your Edge bicycle computer data to add speed and cadence to your cycling video or add heart rate to your sky dive. Once you have the video you want to share, upload it to your favorite share sites for all your friends to see.
The wide variety of VIRB mounts allow you to firmly lock the camera in position, virtually anywhere. From curved and flat deck and dash mounts to handlebar, helmet, shoulder and multi-use strap mounts and more, VIRB mounts have you covered. Joints on VIRB mounts feature interlocking joints that grip in place instead of relying solely on tension. This provides a more rugged and durable, anti-vibration locking performance. We even offer an adapter that lets you use VIRB with other industry mounts.
Optional Dive Case
VIRB is rugged and waterproof to (IPX7¹) right out of the box. For deeper dives and more sustained exposure, the optional Dive Case increases the waterproof rating to 50 meters.
About Helmet Cameras
Helmet or handlebar cameras allow you to capture film footage whilst maintaining full control of the bike, they fit via straps around the vents in your helmet or around you handlebars, or capture those behind you by fitting it to your seat post. They are extremely simple to use with storage via a SD card, you can then copy the footage onto your pc, edit and burn to disk to keep and share. At Wiggle we often take out the staff cam and host the footage on the wiggle blog, known as the bloggle.
All electrical goods sold on wiggle that come with a mains power supply are supplied with a UK plug. Please check the product description to see if any other plugs are known to be included in the box, otherwise you may need an adapter for use in your country. Most power adapters will accept 110-240 Volts.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Can the VIRB be remotely controlled from a GRAMIN 800 edge?
Will the video on the VIRB display data (Speed / Cadence / HR, etc) either obtained from the 800 or from its own GPS?
Interested in how this compares to the VIRB Elite.
The latest Garmin Edge 810 should connect to the Virb cameras however the 800 would not be suitable. If you wish to have GPS and Performance based data, we would recommend the Virb Elite model.
