Garmin Virb Ultra 30

Garmin has released a few handheld action cameras over the past few years, but most agree they have somewhat missed the mark. Many people think of action cams as synonymous with GoPros, so it’s not surprising that if a company’s camera doesn’t have features and specs that compete with the GoPro line of cameras, it may go overlooked. With the VIRB Ultra 30, however, Garmin has stepped up their game and released a 4K Quality action cam with some very impressive features. These include Slow motion, high-sensitivity microphone, live-streaming capabilities, “travelapse”, image stabilization, and more. The VIRB Ultra 30 may make Garmin a solid contender in the handheld action cam market.
