Tachyon GunCam, sponsor of the Spanish National team at the IPSC 2013 European Handgun Championships, is proud to show off its HD headcam, a light-weight, cap-mounted HD video hat camera that grabs sport shooting action like no other camera. This high-quality team demands a high-quality HD first-person video camera for training and competition.
24 Stages of the 2013 European Handgun Championships, taken with the Tachyon OPS HD camera mounted to the caps of top European shooters. Featuring: Gorka Ibañez Charola, Eduardo de Cobos Abreu, Buenaventura Darius Medina, Jose Perez Baz, Miroslav Zapletal, Roberto Vezzoli, Marius Kazanskis, Vitalijus Grincenko
The Tachyon GunCam weighs only 48 grams, (1.7 oz.) so it sits light and unobtrusive on the shooter’s cap, making it the perfect head camera. Centered on the head, and above the gun, it is perfectly placed to capture videos for both sport shooting or tactical practice as well as competition and real ops.
The GunCam utilizes a wide-angle lens that captures hands, gun and targets but without the undesired fish-eye effect that can be found with other cameras.
The GunCam makes use of a built-in 4-hour lithium rechargeable battery. This internal battery, tightly enclosed within the case is designed to prevent loss of footage due to shock when engaging in extreme activities.
The Tachyon GunCam can be mounted on the bill of a hat for competitive shooting but also on pistols, rifles, shotguns and others, using the optional Picatinny Rail Mount and assorted mounting rails. The GunCam can mount to all of the following guns: Glock 34, 35. STI, XDM 5.25, CZ 75 Shadow, TANFOGLIO.
“Tachyon OPS HD is only 48grams (1.7oz), so you don’t feel it on the cap. Its clip mount, perfect for cap mounting, lets video be shot that is directly centered on the hands, gun, and target. Other cameras are impossible to mount in this way.”
- Gorka Ibanez Charola (Spain)
“When filming myself from the first-person perspective, the main objective was to analyze movement and techniques. The Tachyon OPS HD head camera also helped to analyze everything: where shooting was too slow, and when it was too late. Working with first-person video footage can help shooters to become a better and better.”
- Marius Kazankis – Lithuania national team, Production Division top five in Baltics.
The Tachyon GunCam, also known as The Tachyon OPS HD, includes the OPS HD Camera, the specially modified Cap Mount, a Contour and Tripod mount, and a Rainproof Cover. It can be purchased for only $149.99 from the Tachyon website. Please write “Sport Shooter” in the comment area when ordering.
