Garmin 360 overview

  • 1Description

Secure the Garmin VIRB 360 Action Camera anywhere to capture or stream full 360° video. Two cameras with wide-angle lenses are contained within the body of the VIRB 360. Unstitched video can be captured in high-resolution 5.7K or 5K at 30fps as well as stitched, in-camera, for a 4K result. 5.7K video is generated by combining the 2880x2880 resolution of both camera feeds using the free desktop software. Practically speaking, your audience should always see a sharp image, regardless of where they're looking inside the video sphere. Audio from all directions is recorded using four microphones for a complementary spatial audio experience to the spherical video.

Built-in barometer, accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass sensors as well as GPS and GLONASS positioning provide real-time data for the G-Metrix overlays. The free mobile and desktop VIRB applications can be used to offload, share, process, and even stabilize video recorded with the VIRB 360. Videos stitched in-camera can be streamed live with the VIRB applications on select Apple devices. While the apps offer deeper controls, operation of the camera itself is a simple affair. Use the top LCD to monitor key information, and when you're ready to roll simply press the record button, or just say so, using the voice command functionality.

    Garmin 360 reviews

    VIRB 360 Action Camera is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, with reservations. It is well-built, easy to get started, but it has factors holding it back. 1) Getting wifi connected is still a bit too mystical for today. You never quite know if you'll connect or not. Once you are connected, it is rock solid, you can view while it is recording (note: not in raw recording), and it is good. But the initial connection or re-connection is not 100%. 2) The microSD card matters, and doesn't seem to make sense. I had a top-of-the-line, best throughput, all the stickers and signoffs saying it can record best and... while using it, without fail 45 minutes into a recording, some quadrant of the video would go FULL PURPLE. It must be heat (it gets HOT), but after downgrading to a middle of the road microSD card, the issue hasn't manifested again. 3) comes with the territory of action cameras, don't expect much more than an hour of life from a single battery. either get the external ac/charge adapter, or another battery or two depending on your use case. The good news, is the picture is excellent, gps is a great add-on, the photo/video options are correct with enough options and settings that any reasonable needs can be met. The "meh": stitching is only so so. Not best, not worst, but there is a noticeable seam about 2 or 3 feet out, after which it disappears. lastly, it runs HOT. VERY HOT. Almost too hot to the touch, it did power down because of heat on me once or twice (I did get a replacement, which has been better, but still HOT). It is good, not great, and v2 will hopefully give a better seam, figure a way to dissipate heat better, lock in wifi, and allow a better range of microSD cards.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not ready for release Although the specs look good, the footage doesn't. Stills have a higher resolution than the Samsung Gear 360, yet are half the size due to massive compression - so they look far worse. Video looks marginally better than the Samsung, but not 3 times as good (as the price would have you believe). The app will continually ask for the wifi password to your camera, yet never connect - you need to connect your phone to the camera OUTSIDE THE APP then it might stay connected. Obviously a bug in their app. Also, the camera will not connect to my phone via bluetooth. The camera keeps getting an error although I authorize on my phone. There are no quality settings for the camera in the app. The app will download the 80+MB update, yet continuously error out when trying to actually update the camera. OK, so the software is still in beta, how is the hardware? Well, the mounting system is bizarre. It is really tough to get the mount connected to the camera. Once it is connected, it is very solid. We have gone through 4 different 360 cameras at this point and it seems that nothing under $2500 is really ready for commercial use or even remotely reliable (except the Samsung 360 - it is reliable, but not really high quality). Also, in doing a head-to-head with the Samsung 360, using the same mount, the Samsung video is much more stable than the Garmin. I am not sure if there is any type of stabilization built into the Samsung, but it is much nicer to watch compared to this action cam. I guess we will just return this one and wait for the GoPro.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love/Hate with this... Cool toy & showpiece but not 4 me yet Of everything in this price range, it is the best for 360 video. I was hoping it would have been better. It likes it bright so indoor shots without good lighting is not very good, even outdoor with an overcast day was dark in my opinion. One thing I did find out is that you can record in 5.7K but all 360 editing software that I have found will convert it to 4K video once you've made your post production changes. The charge lasts about an hour but I purchased the attachment that allows full time power while attached, then was limited by recording time which was a surprising 3 hours 15 minutes per 128mb micro SD card... I was unable to upload a 50 minute clip to Facebook, it kept timing out... but watching it on my computer off of the card was pretty awesome. Also, editing with the software they give you is very limited, I used CyberLink PowerDirector 16.... a good complement if you plan to do any editing with scale in 360 video. The files KILLED the space on my hard drive... you could fill a 1 TB drive very quickly with out 4 hours of video and although I understand it, wow, pulling in video, saving the raw video and then editing and saving really filled the hard drive. I think this is one of the best on the market right now in the under $1,000 range and was at the high end of what I wanted to pay for a 360 camera but I had the Fly4K and this is at least twice the quality of image, and easier to use. Pictures were a pretty awesome - simply upload to Facebook and FB converts the file for viewing in 360. I did not try the images in a Oculus or Rift so I don't have experience with those. For pictures... in 360 I would Highly recommend this camera but for video, it's not quite up to what I want/need. I would recommend this to someone that wants to take 360 pictures... video, I would say if you're willing to use a lot of space on your storage drives and have a well lit environment it would work for you... but expect to cut the video down and upload it in small segments.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea, poor image quality. Image quality is low, images too contrasty, looks like SD video. Unit overheats and shuts down rendering it unusable. Garmin states updating to latest firmware should fix issues but the unit is already on the latest version.
    Date published: 2017-06-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid camera, improving with updates. Great solid camera, well built. Absolutely love the ability to add AR overlays. Video quality is better than 360 photos but garmin has released several updates to improve bugs and image quality since it's release (as all 360 manufacturers have). The latest update was yesterday. Big improvements.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garmin VIRB360 - Best of breed - Action360 Street View Ready At Red Hen we have been testing a number of the emerging 360 bubblecams. The Garmin VIRB 360 camera despite the additional cost is heads-and-shoulders above any camera tested by us to date and well worth the additional cost. Totally good-to-go and the integration to the Android App is reliable and easy. The construction is compact and simply smartly made with an excellent fitting of all parts. In camera stitch is good and likely will get better. This is an awesome camera entry in the 360 ActionCam game and with all of the associated sensors as well as ability to track their ANT sensors separates Garmin by miles IMHO. I have been around 360 immersion process for better than a decade and this product is, in aggregate, as good as it gets... at the moment (Yes, the world continues to turn!) This camera is Street View ready! Draw backs - really needs some sort of protection between imaging and an external microphone 3.5mm jack IMHO. The availability of a Bluetooth mic is ok but gets in the way of ease of use. Lastly, the Garmin post-collect software is just OK. The sensor over-lay is intuitive but still a tad clunky. A bit more evolution and the Garmin 360 ActionCam will set the pace.
