Garmin VIRB Elite Action Camera Review

Garmin VIRB Elite Action Camera Review


Deep in the wilderness of norther Quebec I use my new Garmin VIRB Elite to capture much of the action and adventure on my canoe trip.

The main things I like about this camera are:

• Battery life, I shot 27.65 GB on two batteries with this camera.

• The screen allows you to view what you are shooting which takes away the need for guess work and disappointment when you view the footage.

• The camera doesn’t fog up. With other action cams that are housed in a case, the need to open them up to change out sim cards and batteries in the field can often lead to a lot of moisture getting into the case and creating foggy shots for the rest of the day. With the VIRB Elite, battery and micro SD card are housed in a separate compartment than the leans.

• The video quality is also excellent as you can see.
