Garmin Seeks 50 VIRB Cam Testers

I first saw that Garmin were looking for 50 testers for their new VIRB outdoors adventure cameras while I was in the Cairngorms last week. I have to admit to fancying one of these cameras so Garmin, if you read this, please do consider my own application :o)

It’s a straightforward process. Register your interest online and you will then receive an email confirming your registration. At this point you can respond to the email providing any additional information that might support your application.

Well, this outdoors loving dad would welcome the opportunity to test out one of these units and I’m already counting down the days to our next Cairngorm holiday in June! The ability to video Harris enjoying his Cairngorm surroundings would be great and something that we could look back on in future years.

It would also have been good to have along to record some of my ultra exploits over the past few years.

Fingers crossed :o)

Check out the gallery of photos from our last Cairngorm trip.
