Now, rather than repeat all the steps to show you precisely the exact same thing, here’s the unboxing of the VIRB X (as opposed to the XE). For example, I can use the Go Pro Hero4 Silver without a case at 79g: Or, make it waterproof and it comes to 142g (side note: I list all the weights of the Go Pro combinations in my Go Pro Hero4 Silver/Black in-depth review).The only difference here is that the VIRB X doesn’t come with the additional mounts to ‘rotate’ the unit sideways or extended slightly. If I look at the older Garmin VIRB, it was 176g: Meanwhile, from a size standpoint you’ll notice the unit is smaller than the original VIRB, albeit oriented differently: And if I try and compare it to the Go Pro Hero4 series, then you’ll find that it’s obviously much wider without a case: But when you add a case it’s not too much wider actually: In fact, in many ways it’s not much different once you add the case compared to the Go Pro Hero4/Silver: So it’ll depend on how you use it a bit.
Inside we’ve got the camera affixed to some molded plastic, so you’ll start by getting rid of the top shell: Then you’ll find a slew of components inside the box. You’ll need that hex wrench for getting the unit out of the plastic cell thingy. These allow you to both change the direction of the camera, as well as use it with older Garmin VIRB mounts. On one hand this is appreciated, yet on the other, if they had designed the case so the lens wasn’t open to the elements when you change the battery – this wouldn’t be an issue. Don’t worry, you’ll get up close and personal with it by the end of this review. The VIRB XE comes in at 154g: Meanwhile, the VIRB X at 153g: Note that I didn’t include mounting hardware, because that’ll vary by the type of mount you place it in.Nur Premium-Mitglieder können die Webcams der anderen Nutzer sehen.Alles was Sie tun müssen um ein Premium- (GOLD) Mitglied auf Lebenszeit zu werden und diese Funktion freizuschalten, ist, einmalig irgendeine Anzahl von Token zu kaufen!However, the mini USB port is badly located on the top edge right under the lever for the suction mount, and this makes it awkward to plug in the power cable.Buttons are on the right-hand edge and on-screen labels tell you their functions, which makes menus much easier to navigate.
