Record panoramic video underwater with the Garmin Virb 360 camera at a new low price of $560

The Garmin Virb 360 waterproof 360-degree camera (opens in new tab) is down to $559.99 on Amazon. This is an all-new low price for the camera. It used to sell as high as $800, but dropped to $700 back in December and has been sitting at that price since late last month when it fell to $640. Suffice to say, it's the lowest it's ever reached by a longshot.

Garmin's camera has resolutions up to 5.7k at 30fps with desktop stitching and 4k at 30fps with in-camera auto-stitching. You can get spherical photos up to 15MP, too. The HyperFrame Director Mode lets you re-frame content after filming using smooth camera pans, wide angles, and tiny planets. The spherical stabilization gives you smooth movement even when shooting video. It is worth pointing out this camera got some bad reviews when it first released back in early 2017, but since then Garmin has been actively updating the features and the apps, greatly improving the experience overall.

It has a removable battery, so you can take some extras when you're out wandering around and spinning in circles in the forest. Spare batteries (opens in new tab) only cost about $35, too.
