camera that captures impressive high-quality video up to 5.7K/30fps,
with four built-in microphones to ensure everything sounds as good as it
looks in any direction. Whether users are kayaking down river rapids or

“The VIRB 360 lets you relive personal experiences and share them with
your friends – from a different point of view, every single time,” said

set will make even the most inexperienced users look like experts.”
