Stabilized 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 contains gyro-based motion sensors to detect camera movements and to help keep your shot steady, and electronic image stabilization¹ reduces camera shake and blur on bumpy flights. The VIRB Ultra 30 Aviation Bundle also includes a prop filter that helps remove the prop blur from your videos, and it features a headset audio cable so you can capture intercom cockpit chatter and ATC radio while flying. Plus, it’s Bluetooth-equipped, so it can connect directly to compatible hands-free headsets so you can narrate your videos. And with the GMA 350c and GMA 245 series of audio panels, you can capture intercom and ATC radio wirelessly and in high definition — without the need for the headset audio cable.
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 rate². 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. Simply review the footage with G-Metrix to see how many G’s you pulled during your flight maneuvers or how fast your heart was beating while on an approach to minimums. Since it’s Connext® capable, it can receive superior aviation-specific data from your G3X Touch™ flight display and Flight Stream 110/210 and Flight Stream 510. Other compatible Garmin sensors and devices pair with your VIRB action camera to extend camera control and provide detailed, measurable data tailored to your activity.
Share the Experience with Live Streaming
With the free VIRB® Mobile app, you’re just 1 touch away from sharing your high-definition footage with the masses by live-streaming on YouTube®³ me you’re owning the mountain on your bike or standing first row at an incredible concert, you don’t have to wait to share the experience.
Our Most Connected Camera Yet — Connext Capable
The best action camera meets the best app in aviation — Garmin Pilot™ — to provide the most integrated experience possible. Never leave the app to adjust the camera settings, start/stop recording or preview the shot. Alternatively, with a flick of a wrist, use the D2™ Bravo series, aera® 660 or G3X Touch flight displays to control the camera. A free VIRB Mobile app4 is also available to edit and share footage once you’re back on the ground. Wireless casting is also available with Miracast-enabled devices such as Roku® and others.
We’re making it easier than ever to capture life’s incredible moments with VIRB Ultra 30 action camera. The bright LCD color touchscreen lets you see exactly what is being recorded.

Shoot plenty of video with more than 2 hours of battery life recording at 1080p to capture all the most interesting parts of your journey. And with multiple charging options (sold separately) you’ll have plenty of juice. Extend your filming time by carrying an extra battery (sold separately) in your flight bag.
Easily Create and Share Videos
The free VIRB Mobile app not only lets you live-stream video footage — you can also use the app to view, edit and share videos that automatically highlight the best moments in your footage. Apply G-Metrix data overlays, and then share with friends on social media. VIRB® Edit desktop software offers an easy-to-use, feature-rich editing program that lets you auto-create videos, add music, trim video clips, incorporate transitions and perfect your video.
Control with Your Voice
You still need to operate your camera when it’s out of reach, mounted in the cockpit or when your hands are simply busy doing other things. That’s why VIRB Ultra 30 action camera features voice control6 using Sensory TrulyHandsfree™ technology. This even works when wired via the headset audio cable or while wirelessly connected via select compatible audio panels. 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.
