Garmin Virb X and XE Action Cameras

Isn’t it just the cutest when GoPro thinks they’ve got the baddest action camera on the block, only to be quickly unseated by some upstart? The two new cameras in the Virb line – the VIRB X & Virb XE – from the fine people over at Garmin are stunning additions to the action camera world and have a few new tricks that no one has seen before. For starters, both cameras can go down 50 full meters without a case and still shoot at 12 megapixels or record vids at 1080p.

The variance between the X and XE models is $100 with the X able to get burst shots at 10 fps and high-def video at 30 fps as the higher-grade XE bursts at 30 fps and takes videos at 60 fps. They shoot clear, clean, and beautifully whether snapped to a drone or beneath a boat. Your move GoPro. [Purchase]
