Garmin VIRB Ultra 30 | A Super Advanced Sports Action Camera


Garmin has brought out some amazing technology lately, and the Garmin VIRB Ultra 30 Action Camera, is no exception. It looks much like a GoPro and functions much like one, but that’s where the similarities end.

To be honest, the VIRB Ultra 30, is definitely the most advanced action camera that we have ever seen and it contains technology that is simply mind-blowing.

The 1.75″ built-in LCD screen functions perfectly, even in the waterproof case. This allows you to review the Ultra HD 4K footage that you have just captured.

Starting off with the recording quality, we’re pleased to know that the VIRB Ultra 30 records in Ultra HD. Meaning, that it captures all of your spectacular sporting moments in 4K resolution at 30 fps. However, it can be set down to 1080p at 120fps and has a slow motion capability at 720p at 240 fps. Don’t forget to check out the video below.

Apart from its recording capabilities, what makes this camera exceptional, is the fact that it contains tech called ‘G-Metrix’. G-Metrix features a built-in GPS and external sensors that can be connected to other Garmin devices that captures performance data like speed, elevation, heart rate and G-force. See image below.
