Garmin VIRB Ultra 30 Action Camera

Whether you’re riding the waves of the salty sea or tumbling mid-air over snow-capped mountains, capture the highest, fastest, wettest and even wobbliest of adventures—and without even having to live to tell it. VIRB Ultra 30 will do it for you on its crystal clear HD display, using the new G-METRIX feature to capture the data that your friends might not otherwise believe. With the all-new VIRB Ultra 30, you’ll never have to prove how fast, high, or far you went again.


  • Shoot crisp 4k/30fbs, 1080p/120fps or slow motion 720p/240fps video (with GPS data overlaps) and relive your adventures over and over as if you’re still surging through the air on your skis or catching the vivid parade of coral beneath your paddle board.
  • A picture speaks a 1000 words, but GPS corroborates it. Validate how fast, how high, and how far your skills really take you, using the G-METRIX built-in sensors/10HZ GPS to capture vital action data.
  • See exactly what you’re recording on the crisp 1.75-inch touchscreen display that you can control even through the waterproof (up to 40m), anti-glare case that’s engineered for the most temperamental of environments. Like you, the highly sensitive microphone can perform even in the windiest of conditions.
  • Adventures aren’t always smooth but VIRB Ultra 30 is on it. The 3-axis image stabilization feature records the steadiest of footage, up to 1080p/60fps.
  • Garmin gets that you need to shoot hands-free—that’s why the new VIRB Ultra 30 features convenient voice control, so you can command even when your hands need to be elsewhere to perform the incredible stunts you’re planning.
  • Stream your action live* on YouTube in real time with one simple touch, and easily create more directed videos when your feet are back on the ground with the Auto Create video feature.
  • Record your stunts at any time of day—VIRB Ultra 30 transitions to nighttime, wide, extended time lapse, and Travel lapse modes.
  • The ANT+ and WiFi connectivity features let you control VIRB Ultra 30 from your compatible Garmin gear like Fenix 3, Or use the Virb app to double your smartphone or tablet as a remote. Then when you’re in rest mode, you can create, edit and share your ventures using Virb Edit on your desktop.
