GoPro 8 vs VIRB 360

Thursday, November 14, 2019 1:28 AM

This test campares the GoPro 8 to the Garmin VIRB 360. The mass of the two cameras and the wind resistance they create exceeds the ability of the mount to hold the cameras steady. While taxing  and in flight there was excessive movement of the cameras fore and aft. Since both cameras were subject to the same movement, it is useful to see how they deal with this motion.

The Garmin VIRB software offers two modes of stabilization, vibration reduction and stabilize only. Testing both modes, I could not see a significance between them. The video below is the stabilize only mode.
