Product Overview

Can your action camera do what VIRB Ultra 30 can do?

The VIRB Ultra 30 can record on command, erase the shakes, capture every laugh, shriek and sound bite. VIRB can. It’s the action camera that can do what others can’t. It even proves how far, how fast and how high you went. Capturing the moment was intense. Now the video can be too.

Key Features

  • High quality video: capture crystal clear footage, up to 4K/30fps Bright LCD display: 1.75" diagonal color touchscreen lets you see exactly what is being recorded and easily control the camera, even when it’s in the waterproof case
  • Voice Control: Shoot hands-free with Voice Control. Start and stop recording or even take a picture with a simple spoken command. 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.
  • Rugged and Waterproof: Anti-glare, water-repellent lens allows for clear video capture in a variety of environments. VIRB Ultra 30 is waterproof up to 40M when enclosed in the included case while VIRB X/XE is waterproof up to 50M, no case needed.
  • Image stabilization: record smooth and steady footage, no matter the terrain with three-axis image stabilization
  • G-Metrix™: Prove the jaw-dropping stats behind every moment with built-in sensors and GPS that capture data such as speed, altitude and much more, so you can see how fast and high you went.
  • Hear it all: High-sensitivity microphone captures clear audio whether in or out of the waterproof case.
  • Live streaming: with one touch, share your footage with the world. With the free VIRB® Mobile app, you’re just one touch away from sharing your high-definition footage with the masses by live-streaming on YouTube®.
