Top Features of the Garmin VIRB Elite Action Camera
- 1080p HD video recording with 16 megapixel CMOS image processor
- Chroma display: colour, high-resolution; easier control of setup, playback and adjustments
- High-sensitivity GPS, accelerometer and barometric altimeter
- Wi-Fi connectivity; use with free mobile applications for iPhone® and Android™
- Rechargeable, 2000 mAh lithium-ion battery, record over 3 hours at 1080p
True High Definition Recording
VIRB Elite 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 can adjust resolution and filming speed for crisp, dramatic slow motion up to 120fps. And it’s all processed through a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor so you get the highest quality video and a more manageable file size for editing and sharing. 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).
VIRB Elite features a class-leading 2000 mAh lithium-ion battery that has been tested at nearly 3 hours recording at 1080p. Which means there’s a good chance you’ll tire out before the battery does. And with multiple charging options (sold separately) you’ll have plenty of juice. Extend your filming time by carrying a replacement battery (sold separately) on your all-day adventure.
Connect Wirelessly to Your Smartphone
VIRB Elite is equipped with Wi-Fi for wireless communication to your smartphone or computer. Wi-Fi enables you to see the image preview. Control for playback and adjust camera settings. Plus record and stop the camera as well as remotely snap still photos, even while the camera is filming.
Film The Run, Not The Lift Line
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.
Sensors, Sensors and More Sensors
VIRB Elite’s ANT+™ wireless connectivity also works with Garmin external sensors. Pair with the tempe™ wireless temperature sensor, speed/cadence bike sensor and the premium heart rate monitor to include revealing sensor information in your videos, like how fast your heart was racing on your last bike race or peering over the edge of the Grand Canyon. Elite also features a built-in accelerometer and altimeter for data stamping and custom filming profiles.
Sleek and Easy to Use
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 into your activity without having to work around a bulky camera body. So go ahead and ski or zip-line or even bobsled knowing you got the shot (and maybe the best time).
Control VIRB Remotely
VIRB Elite uses ANT+™ wireless connectivity to enable you to use your compatible Garmin product like fenix™, Oregon® and Edge® as remote controls. With VIRB Elite, you also gain the advantage of Wi-Fi so you can stop and start recording or take still images wirelessly with your smart phone or compatible Garmin device. Now, you don’t have to take your hands off the handlebars or remove the camera from the mount for that perfect shot.
Digital Image Stabilization and More
With the Digital Image Stabilization feature engaged, VIRB Elite 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 Elite is a high-powered digital photo camera too. With 16 megapixel photo capture LDC plus a WideVü lens (Wide/Medium/Narrow) 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 and more manageable file sizes.
Shoot Video and Photographs at the Same Time
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 the button on either your 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 all the VIRB Elite external and built-in sensor compatibility and compatibility with other Garmin devices. Include a dashboard with your speed and heart rate with your motorcycle video, or the accelerometer and altitude data on your sky dive. Once you have the video you want to share, upload it on to your favorite share sites for all your friends to see.
The wide variety of VIRB Elite 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 Elite is rugged and waterproof to IPX7¹ standards 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.
