Playing With The Garmin Virb Elite

My latest toy is a Garmin Virb Elite action camera.  If you are not familiar, think GoPro, but different form factor and a GPS built in.

The Virb looked like the perfect camera for my needs, which is mainly recording bike rides, and to act as a dash camera for road trips.  The tools make it easy to overlay useful information onto the videos, like elevation, speed, location etc.

Last night I took the Virb out on its maiden voyage in the form of recording part of my evening bike ride with the dog (hence the slow speeds).

This is the video, sped up 8x.  I need to work on my editing skills, but I think this camera is going to work out nicely.
