Garmin Virb XE is quickly becoming the go-to camera on the water thanks to its connectivity with their Wi-Fi-capable displays, allowing one to view and control them directly from a multifunction display on the helm. They’ll also connect to your smartphone and a separate Bluetooth remote control. They shoot 1080p, not 4K, and Garmin won’t admit they are working on a higher-resolution camera. But the Virb’s ease of operation, integrated waterproof case design and superior sound capture, even when the waterproof case is latched, makes it a killer option to have on board. It uses a ¼-by-20 thread tripod mount adapter, opening up a whole new world of mounts.
