Can your action camera do this — record on command? VIRB Ultra 30 can. This waterproof3 ultra HD action camera features voice control so you can tell the camera to start, stop and "remember that". That means more hands-free selfies when you're looking fearless — and easier editing when the action's all done. It's small, weighs next to nothing, and it's ready to take on any dare or adventure, thanks to the included waterproof case.


Stabilised ultra HD video

This best-in-class camera shoots up to 4K/30fps video action to show all your adventures in crisp, brilliant detail. VIRB Ultra 30 also features 3-axis image stabilisation,4 so whether you're snowboarding, cycling or off-roading, footage won't come out shaky.


Control with your voice

You still need to operate your camera when it's out of reach, mounted on your helmet, or when your hands are simply busy doing other things. That's why VIRB Ultra 30 action camera features voice control1 using Sensory TrulyHandsfree™ technology. Use simple commands such as "start recording" or "take a picture" to operate the camera hands-free. You can even tell VIRB Ultra 30 to "remember that" and it will tag footage for you to easily recall later.


Prove it

Your active lifestyle is about more than just video and audio. Capture relevant performance data with G-Metrix technology, including speed, altitude, G-force and even heart rate.5 Built-in Garmin GPS (10 Hz) and other sensors automatically record data so you can easily overlay gauges and graphs onto your footage to prove how far, how high and how fast you went. 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.
