VIRB 360 is the first of its kind, capturing a complete sphere of high-resolution video and audio — even photos. It eliminates the lengthy editing process with unrivaled 1-click video stabilization up to 4K resolution at 30 fps and allows you to instantly livestream5 any adventure. 

Defining a New Standard for Full-sphere 360 Video and Audio Capture

If it’s worth remembering, it’s worth a VIRB 360. This rugged, waterproof camera is true to its name, recording the full 360 degrees — horizontally and vertically. And you can forget about timely post-production work, because VIRB 360 will auto-stitch¹ your 4K footage in camera. If you’re looking for higher resolution, you can record video in unstitched 5.7K resolution at 30fps, and stitch it together in VIRB Edit. Get even more control with different recording modes such as time lapse, manual, and the powerful new HyperFrame Director Mode, which gives you the editing power to easily reframe content after filming — using smooth camera pans, incredibly wide angles and even tiny planets.

Even capture 360-degree photos, burst shots, time lapse and Travelapse™ photo capture up to 15 megapixels — stitched in camera. Combined with the 4 built-in microphones for 360-degree audio, you and your viewers will be totally immersed in the 360 experience.

Captures Spherical Stabilized 4K Video with 1 Click

Take a shaky, hard-to-follow video, and turn it into a smooth and stable masterpiece in 1 click. Regardless of camera movement, the 3 modes of 4K spherical stabilization² ensure a smooth video. Stabilize mode smooths quick movements and vibrations without overriding camera orientation. Use lock mode to secure the orientation of the camera in a specified direction. In follow mode, the orientation follows the GPS trajectory. There’s even stabilization for 5.7K, RAW video stitched in the VIRB Edit desktop app. Check out the video to see the difference our advanced stabilization makes.

Data Overlays with G-Metrix

Retell your story in greater detail than ever before. Built-in sensors, such as GPS and GLONASS, barometer, accelerometer and more, provide countless customizable G-Metrix data overlay options in 360-degree augmented reality². Just select premade templates of the data points you want, and see your custom data overlay displayed in your video. Other compatible Garmin sensors and devices pair with your VIRB to extend camera control and provide detailed, measurable data tailored to your activity. Check the Compatible Devices and Accessories tabs for a list of compatible products and sensors.

Control It with Your Voice

“OK Garmin, start recording.” It’s that easy. When you are about to speed down a rugged hillside, chances are you don’t want to reach up and press start. Now you can just use a voice command7, and the camera will start and stop recording and take photos. Or ask VIRB 360 to “remember that” to tag specific moments in your adventure and quickly find them again later.

FAQ

Can I record using just 1 camera lens?

What is stitching?

Stitching is the process of combining video footage or photos captured by the camera’s 2 lenses.

How does stitching work with VIRB 360?

Out of the box, the camera will do the stitching for you. VIRB 360 will automatically stitch your footage in the camera in up to 4K/30fps resolution, saving you time and energy. For a higher resolution and more control, you can record in up to 5.7K/30fps resolution and use VIRB Edit desktop software to stitch the footage. As an alternative, users may download the lens profile for Autopano software.

Does VIRB 360 also capture photos?

STABILIZATION

What does each stabilization mode do?

  • Stabilize mode levels the horizon and smooths quick movements and vibrations. Use this mode when the camera is mounted to an object such as a windshield, hood or roll bar.
  • Follow mode stabilizes and follows the GPS trajectory of the camera. This works best when there is a clear path of motion but lots of camera movement — such as while mountain biking or snowmobiling with the camera mounted to your helmet.
  • Lock mode stabilizes and locks the orientation to a compass heading. This works best when there are many changes in direction such as skydiving or snowboarding.

How does stabilization work?

VIRB 360 has many built-in sensors that record data about how your camera is moving. Using the VIRB Mobile app or Virb Edit desktop software, the videos can easily be stabilized.
