Tachyon GunCam Offers New Software for Sport Shooters!

For all Sport Shooters:

We have finalized a new camera software that automatically stops recording after two minutes.
This ensures that you won’t let the camera run on and on after you have finished recording your stages.
(We are assuming that you don’t take more than two minutes to finish a stage!)

If you wish to make use of this update, please contact us for the software and instructions at: support@tachyoninc.com (Subject: sport shooting software)

The World’s Best Biker Cam now Rolls in Full HD 1080p

Bikers can roll down the highway, capturing scenery, bikes, and buddies in full, wide-screen HD 1080p. The BikerCam HD 1080p is engineered for shooting forward in outdoor areas, rather than in close, enclosed areas where a fisheye lens is needed. BikerCam’s image therefore looks more natural, with distant objects not too small to see and close objects not distorted.

For continuous recording while riding, the BikerCam can connect to your bike’s power via the included 3’ USB cable and the bike’s USB or 12V socket. The package includes a 12V adaptor plug.
When connected to your bike’s power, the BikerCam will start up and start recording whenever you turn on your power. It will then stop recording and turn off when you power down your engine. When you are recording the cable will continuously charge your BikerCam, removing the need to worry about battery power.

There is also no need to worry about the space remaining on your memory card because BikerCam makes use of looping technology to overwrite you oldest files with your most recent videos. This allows you to run your camera nonstop and remove important video files only when you feel the need to preserve a recording.

An optional time & date stamp reminds you of when your video was taken.

Features:

  • The World’s smallest & lightest 1080p Full-HD Biker Camera
  • 1080p Full-HD Super-Sharp Video, shoots wide-screen videos without fisheye distortion.
  • Auto-Start & Stop recording at ignition and shutdown of engine.
  • Continuous charging while recording.
  • 1/3″ CMOS High-dynamic sensor & high-speed CPU. For quick light transition & low-light night riding.
  • Looped recording automatically overwrites older files.
  • 2+ hours 1080p recording on Lithium rechargeable battery. Longer recording time on 720p.
  • Rain/Dustproof cover.
  • Optional time and date stamp.
  • Patented 8-direction mounting system.

Included with the BikerCam System are the BikerCam HD 1080p camera, Quick-Release Handlebar Mount, 3 foot USB Charging Cable & 12V adapter, Rainproof Cover, Contour Mount for helmet mounting, Tripod Mount, Clip Mount, safety tether, and a strip of 3M Dual-Lock Fastener.

“Now I’m a pretty technical guy and can figure out how to work just about anything, however I prefer the things I use to be as simple as possible, and the TACHYON BikerCam is just that… SIMPLE.”

“Overall based on price, video quality, ease of use, and accessories included – I find the TACHYON BikerCam one of the best values on the market for a motorcycle/helmet mounted video camera.”
- CycleFish.com – The Ultimate Biker Website

BikerCam as a Dash Cam

Since most bikers also drive, they will be pleased to know that the BikerCam makes a terrific dash cam. As when mounted on your bike, it will start and stop recording along with the ignition and shutdown of the engine. An optional time & date stamp reminds you of exactly when your video was taken.

The World’s Best Practical Shooter in History Puts His Name to the World’s Best Video Camera for his Sport

5-Time World Champion Éric Grauffel had never before recorded his competitions because he had never found a video camera that was up to the task. But when he found the Tachyon GunCam HD, he was so impressed that he asked Tachyon to make a special edition of the camera with his name on it.

 Éric Grauffel, also a 6-time European Champion, puts his signature to the GunCam HD: the lightest and smallest HD video camera system. It is designed to be easily mounted to caps, making it perfect for capturing intense first-person action of shooting sports.

“I highly recommend that you use this great little camera to record and analyze your stages so that you can cut seconds off of your time.”

Features:

  • One button to turn on and start recording
  • Wide-angle lens, but no fish-eye effect
  • 5+ Hours recording time with rechargeable Lithium battery
  • Able to record 30 stages of the World Shoot on one charge.
  • Uses 4 – 64GB Micro memory cards for up to 17 hours of HD video.
  • Charging cable can charge camera in the field from portable power banks.

“The GunCam HD is extremely compact and light. I attach it to my cap and think nothing more of it. It captures everything I need when shooting.”
Dave Sevigny ~ USA (11-time USPSA Champion, 9-Time IDPA Champion)

“I give the GunCam HD two thumbs up. GunCam plus the open gun equals fun!   I love this camera!”
- Athena Lee ~ USA  (2-Time USPSA Nationals Open Champion, 2-Time IPSC World Shoot Open Champion)

“GunCam HD gives me a direct point of view to review my shooting. Before I would only have a video from far away to see my movements, but now I can correlate it to my shooting as well. This will help identify any deficiencies on my transitions, target acquisition, and any other inefficient movements that I could never before see.”
- JJ Racaza ~ (Team Captain – USA Gold Team)

The World’s Top Shooters use Tachyon GunCam HD to record their events

GunCam HD is not only for competition pistol shooting. It is designed for all types of guns and gun sports. Tachyoninc.com offers additional mounts for mounting your GunCam HD to nearly every type of gun. Rifles and shotguns, as well as pistols.

It is well known that the most common cause of lost video from sports cameras is because of non-fixed batteries losing contact with the circuitry. But the GunCam HD’s battery is soldered in place. It is hard-wired to withstand heavy recoil.
It has passed tests with shotguns shooting slugs, and ARs and AKs on full automatic. None of these bad boys can stop the GunCam HD from grabbing your shooting footage. This is the perfect camera for hunters and trap shooters, who wish to relive and show off their shooting prowess to friends and family, as well as to review mistakes and study means of improvement.

The Éric Grauffel Signature GunCam HD, as well as optional GunCam HD mounts, can be purchased online and at Éric’s shooting events.

Tachyon GunCam takes its First-Person HD Video Hatcam into action at the IPSC European Handgun Championship 2013

September 17, 2013

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, sports shooting

Gorka Ibanez Charola (Spain)

“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.

BikerCam by Tachyon Enables Riders to Get Over 17 Hours of Continuous HD Recording

bikercam, tachyon, biker video, motorcycle videoTachyon, Inc. has developed a way for motorcycle video enthusiasts to get nearly unlimited recording time while riding. With the BikerCam’s 12V Charge n’ Record Charger connecting the camera to the bike, the camera will receive continuous power that will charge the BikerCam while it is recording.

Other motorcycle cameras currently on the market offer a battery life of only 1 to 2 hours of recording time. This forces riders to either stop often to recharge, or to accept missing recording most of the ride. But the BikerCam, connected to the 12V Charge n’ Record Charger, wires directly to the bike’s 12V socket for unlimited power. Other cameras will also face the problem of a full memory card. But the BikerCam is equipped with looped-recording technology that begins recording over the oldest files once the card is full. A 64GB memory card (sold separately) will give the rider over 17 hours of video before the card is full. This enables the rider to focus on riding and to forget the camera, only downloading files when necessary to save something special. When removed from the handlebar mount and unplugged from the charger, the fully charged camera can also be used to record videos away from the bike, for another 4.5 hours.

bikercam, tachyon, biker video, motorcycle videoBikerCam utilizes a wide-angle lens that captures more of the road and other vehicles, without the undesired fish-eye effect, produced by other cameras. It is the perfect camera for those long road trips and for recording the beautiful scenery and winding roads. Record all of the rallies, not just the highlights. Record the whole trip to Sturgis on one card, or get all the action at Daytona Beach without taking time out to recharge the camera. And with the video time stamp, the time and date will appear on the video, for future reference.

BikerCam, with its contour mount, will easily mount to helmets or fenders. And when attached to its Quick-Release Handlebar Mount, can also mount to the motorcycle’s handlebars, engine guards, sissy bars, or racks. The Quick-Release Handlebar Mount is designed to remain securely attached to the bike, while the camera can be easily removed from the mount at any time. Once removed from the bike, the camera can be used as a dash cam in a car, a security camera at home, and much more.
Included with each BikerCam is a Rainproof Cover which will protect it from rain, dust, and flying stones. Charging and mounting the camera are unaffected when using the cover.

bikercam, tachyon, biker video, motorcycle videoBikerCam is also capable of taking time-lapse photos. One photo will be taken every two seconds. Each photo is time and date stamped, which is extremely useful when there is a need for documenting unsafe drivers or accidents.
Like all Tachyon cameras, the BikerCam could not be easier to use. It is ready to go right out of the box and its simple, one-button operation eliminates any confusion for its users. The cameras are also capable of plug-and-play on a PC or a Mac.

The BikerCam only weighs 1.7 oz and boasts the patented 8-way mounting system which allows for an unparalleled range of mounting positions, allowing the user to rotate the camera through the 12, 9, 6, and 3 o’clock positions, as well as forwards or backwards. And this can all be accomplished very easily while the BikerCam rests in the mount.

bikercam, tachyon, biker video, motorcycle videoBikerCam makes use of a built-in lithium rechargeable battery, which is ideal for riding in the cold, or shooting other action sports such as snowmobiling or snowboarding. This internal battery, tightly enclosed within the case, is designed to prevent loss of footage due to shock when engaging in extreme activities.
Standard mounts for the BikerCam are the Contour Mount, for mounting to curved surfaces such as the side or tops of helmets or fenders, a standard Tripod Mount that will attach to any ¼-20 inch universal tripod screw, and a Clip Mount with multiple angles of rotation making it perfect for caps, collars, straps, and do-rags.

Gun owners may also want to check out the Tachyon, Inc. Picatinny Rail Mount and GunCam® accessories.

The BikerCam System, which includes the camera, the Contour, Tripod, and Clip Mounts, the 12V Charge n’ Record Charger, and the Quick-Release Handlebar Mount, can be purchased for only $189.99 from the Tachyon website.
