Action camera trends in the world began to crawl along with the proliferation of photo sharing activities on social media. Camera-making companies began releasing their products in the action camera genre. Garmin did not want to miss the hype train and have entered the market through the latest VIRB 360 action camera.
The Garmin Virb 360 is a 360-degree camera, but with the characteristics we usually encounter on an action cam. The body part looks sturdy, and it is water resistant to a depth of 10 meters without the help of a casing, so you can capture the beauty of coral reefs more immersively.
5,7 K – Yap! You Don’t Read This One Wrong!
The VIRB 360 can capture spherical photos in 15-megapixel resolution while recording videos in 5.7K 30 fps resolution. Not only it can capture video from all angles, but the device will also capture audio from all directions (360 degrees) with its four integrated microphones.
Virb 360 borrows two excellent Virb Ultra 30 cam action features, namely control via voice commands and the ability to tether data (overlays) such as speed or altitude directly above the video. These data are obtained through the row of sensors embedded in the camera, such as accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer, compass, and GPS.
Stabilization at It’s Best! – Live Stream? No Problemo!
The Virb 360 also offers a stabilization feature for the spherical videos it produces with the help of companion applications on smartphones and desktops. Through this smartphone application, users can control the camera from a distance or even hold a live streaming session.
Apart from the smartphone connection, the operation relies on three buttons on the top panel. There is also a small screen that will display the video mode indicator, storage capacity – the device supports microSD cards up to 128 GB – and the remaining juice inside the battery. The battery itself is estimated to last up to 1 hour nonstop.
