That is pretty cool. I held off on the GoPro 3, now they have the 3+, but the Garmin seems like an interesting piece of kit.

As you can probably tell, I like it a lot. It's not perfect yet but it's got a lot of potential and the basics are there - it has a good lens with lens correction built in so pictures and video don't have to look fish-eye unless you choose that. I really like the more streamlined shape and the fact that you don't need another box around it unless you're going underwater with it. The accessories seem to be made of much better plastic than the GoPro stuff which I seem to break with great regularity.

The video display, WiFi, gps, accelerometer, and other features are icing on the cake.

But the iPhone app mentioned in the box and literature is not out yet. Garmin says it's gonna be "real soon now" and I have no reason to doubt that. Because I can use the 78S or the Montana as remote controls, I'm happy with that for the time being.

Here's another video I shot at night.



I have more videos and a thread on the camera here.

The Virb has a few minor issues, none of which affect me. The biggest is the missing app described in the manual, but if you have a Montana, you've got a remote control right there.

I definitely recommend it.

Came across some interesting books recently searching the Indigo site. "Back Roads of Ontario - by Ron Brown", "Backroad Atlas of Eastern Ontario". Does anyone have these? Are they worth purchasing?

Yes. A thread just started on this same topic.

Don't leave home without it. :-)

His Ghost Town books are interesting too although many of the ruins and structures are gone now, the books are fairly old.

Joan Finnegan wrote an excellent book on the Opeongo Road that is one of my favourites.
