To all Skiers, Snowboarders, & Snowmobilers
Tachyon, Inc. has the perfect helmet camera for all of you! What’s the best part about skiing, boarding & sledding? Is it the rush of flying down the mountain? Is it savoring those moments as you carve up your favorite run on a beautiful day? Or is it bragging to your buddies that you landed a rodeo 720? You don’t have to leave those moments to just memory anymore. The 2010 Tachyon XC and the Tachyon XC Micro helmet cameras will help you capture and hold onto theses moments forever.
From the time the lifts open until well into happy-hour, the 2010 Tachyon XC will allow you to shoot up to 10 hours of continuous, hands-free video, in cold-weather conditions, without ever changing the batteries or the SD card.* Although the Tachyon XC will not protect your hands from frostbite, you won’t have to worry about removing your gloves to use the camera; it comes with an easy to use, one-button remote control.**
Both the 2010 Tachyon XC and XC Micro are extremely versatile and tough cameras that are housed in waterproof cases, protected from everything from a light drizzle, to your worst spill as you tumble down a double-black diamond (…not like that would ever happen). They both utilize a high-dynamic-light-sensor that allows them to record crystal clear footage in both the extreme bright white on the peak during a sunny day and in the deafening darkness while night-skiing. It also adjusts almost instantaneously the quickly changing light/dark conditions caused by trees, the mountain, clouds, and abominable snowmen. The ninety degree wide-angle lens hits that “sweet spot” of human vision, allowing the viewers to see nearly everything that the user does without any sort of warping caused by some lenses that are “too wide”.
One final bonus is that the cameras are plug-and-play with Mac & PC, so playing, editing, and uploading videos is extremely easy; no software or downloads are needed! Share the memories as soon as possible by uploading them to websites like YouTube or Vimeo. Although we know your Mom believes you landed a double frontflip nosegrab, once your videos are on YouTube, your friends will too!
So whether you’re barreling down the slopes, hitting the half-pipe, tearing along a snow-covered forest road or recording your kid’s first ski-trip – as long as you have a Tachyon helmet cam, you’ll be sure to keep those truly magical moments from the mountains with you in more than just memory.
