Tachyon XC in Surfing Hawaii

I finally got to edit some surf footage!  And I will tell you all that this was my favorite video to edit so far.  One of my good friends in Hawaii recently sent me some footage that he filmed with his Tachyon XC in the water and I had an absolute blast putting it together.  I am a huge fan of Jack Johnson and all of the Moonshine Conspiracy films (now Woodshed Films) as well as Bruce Brown, Stacey Peralta, and the Malloy Brothers films, so I tried to create something a little similar to their incredible films.  I hope you enjoy it, every time I watch it I dream of being in the water…

The Tachyon XC as an underwater rescue tool.

If you own a Tachyon XC or know anything about our Helmet Camera (that has become known across the globe as the toughest cam on the market), you know that it is waterproof.  One of the incredible features of the XC is that it is a self contained waterproof unit, it doesn’t need an external case to keep it safe from the elements.  We have made some great friends across the world in the last 9 months (we have sold the XC to people in over 120 countries), friends in the military, friends on police or security forces, amateur and professional athletes, and fire fighters.  There is one Dept. in particular that we have become very fond of, the Isles of Capri Fire and Rescue team.

I think we are on the phone on a weekly basis with their crew, telling stories, hearing stories and laughing our #@$’s off.  Here at Tachyon we support those who support and keep us safe by putting their lives on the line every day, the Isles of Capri team is one that we support heavily.  Just recently they took a few Tachyon XC’s out on a routine dive and used it in some of their safety maneuvers and training.  In the midst of their training exercises they tested out the camera at different depths.  In the video below you will see that the camera operated beautifully at the depth of 47 feet.  Yes, that is correct, 47 feet….with incredible clarity, and sound.

Here is a Quote from the Chief about how the XC performed and how important it can be for those in the fire, police, security and military field.

“ You definitely produced a product that is durable, of tremendous quality and extremely practical for use in emergency services.  During field testing our dive team found the Tachyon XC performed beyond expectations.  It not only withstood exposure to harsh  environments, but went on to produce video of professional quality.

This camera is exactly what we needed in order to document and critique under water rescue missions.  I highly recommend any department performing dive rescue operations utilize the Tachyon XC to document incidents which can later be critiqued in an effort to improve safety, response, and most importantly save lives.”

If you are a professional scuba diver, or a recreational snorkeler the XC is what you need to record in the reef and amongst the coral.  Just watch the video and order the cam, I am pretty sure you are going to want one.  For more information go to www.tachyoninc.com

Until next time….
