Rock solid video capture: With the ability to shoot stunning high definition video in 1440p30, 1080p60 and 720p120, the VIRB XE is ready to capture your experiences in vivid detail. Featuring a custom, all-glass lens, high frame rates up to 240FPS (480p) and manual camera controls like white balance, exposure blasting/locking, sharpness, ISO limit and colour palette. All features to ensure that you get the shots you aim for.
High quality photography: With the dedicated photo button and the ability to shoot wide-angle 12 megapixel photos at speeds up to 30 frames per second. You can even capture photos while recording video. Shoot time-lapse photos automatically at intervals up to 120 seconds. The camera will sleep between shots in order to save battery life!
Smooth Videoing: What gives the Virb XE an edge over the Virb X is the image stabilisation feature. Built in motion sensors detect camera movements and help to keep your shot steady. So if you're bouncing over harsh terrain or simply have a shaky hand, you can be reassured that the Virb XE will reduce blur giving you the best shot!
Make use of the extra software: Using the Garmin GPS, G-Force and orientation sensors capture performance data as well as video. There is also free VIRB edit software which automatically overlays gauges and graphs to showcase your speed, acceleration, heart rate and much more! Choose manual controls to review and edit your footage, adjust G-Metrix gauges, add music and switch between camera angles.
Compact with all the parts: The tough design is ready to dive up to 50m without the need for an additional case. The exposed microphone records clean and clear audio that cameras in cases just can't pick up. Thanks to the hydrophobic flat glass lens, underwater shots are crystal clear and unobstructed by water droplets. Also make use of the quality mounts that let you lock the camera in position. Mount to; handlebars, seatposts, helmets and chests to capture the best shots.
Long-lasting power: There are weatherproof power contacts so that you can connect to a vehicle battery or other power source to allow for uninterrupted recording. A rechargeable/replaceable lithium-ion battery is also featured for maximum flexibility.
A camera that is simple to use: 1-touch record switch on the top if the camera and a dedicated camera shutter button for still photos. The switch makes it easy to know when you are recording, even if you can't see the top of the camera because it's on top of your head! Alternatively you could make use of the automatic recording feature which starts recording when the device begins moving. Editing is also made easy as you can connect to Wi-Fi to preview your shots using the mobile app. Playback and edit the footage right there and then to make the best from your shots. Don't forget that this camera can also capture sound! Equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 you can connect directly to wireless Bluetooth headsets or microphones to capture audio in high definition, live and uninterrupted.
A camera for life: Thanks to the VIRB tracking function that connects to your Garmin device or compatible smartphone, you can find the last known location of your camera so that you can always retrieve it.
What's the difference? Garmin released both the Virb X as well as the XE which unsurprisingly look very similar. Of course this leaves many of you wondering what on earth is the difference?! In simple terms, the XE does everything that the X does but with a few added extra's for the more professional user! By adding pro-mode, image stabilisation and 1080p/60fps the Virb XE is slightly more advanced and ideal for those of you who really know your stuff!
