NEW: Garmin VIRB -
Garmin have recently announced a new action sports camera – the VIRB!
Following the closure of Contour, we no longer have a budget sports camera; GoPros are ridiculously expensive and so too are the Sony Action Cams.
However, the Garmin VIRB will not be the bugdget sports camera you are looking for. Sorry to build you up to let you down but with the basic model retailing at around 269.99 the VIRB will not come cheap.
However some of the features of the basic model are:
- 1080p HD video recording with 16 megapixel CMOS image processor
- 1.4″ Chroma display
- Long-lasting rechargeable lithium-ion battery so you can record over 3 hours at 1080p
- Rugged, durable, waterproof – with an aerodynamic design
So this certainly seems to make the VIRB a competitor with the other big name sports cameras. But will it live up to its rivals?
