New Sport Shooting Software for Tachyon GunCam

Updated Software for better control of your Video Recordings during Shooting Matches.

Tachyon’s GunCam for Sport Shooting now comes with software that allows you to switch easily between automatic stopping of your recordings and manual stopping.

Automatic will shut off your recording after two minutes, making it perfect for short pistol stages in USPSA, IDPA, and IPSC matches. This eliminates the problem of forgetting to stop your recording on one stage, which not only wastes memory and drains your battery, but causes you to stop the camera when you think you are turning it on to record the next stage.

For longer recording sessions, such as 3Gun, or for every-day camera usage, you can set the camera to Manual shutoff. This will allow you to record as long as you like and then shut off by yourself.

You can change your modes at the 1080p – 720p switch on the back of your camera. The 1080p position will give you Automatic, and the 720p position will give you Manual. But please note that both modes will record in Full-HD 1080p.

Happy Shooting!

Tachyon

The favorite camera for the world’s top sport shooters readies for a new season of competition.

The Tachyon GunCam- Full-HD 1080p, weighs in at only 1.9 oz. (54 grams), so it sits light and unobtrusive on shooter’s caps. Centered on their heads and above their guns, they are perfectly placed to capture dramatic videos of both practice and competition.

This lets the shooter concentrate on the competition and not on turning off the camera, and enables the recording of a long day of competition without missing a single shot.

Standard non-stop software as well as other software targeted at different sports or uses, such as for motorcycles, dash cams with looping, law enforcement with Time & Date stamp, or hunting, give the user great control over camera operation.

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 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.

The OPS weighs in at only one ounce and measures just .95 inches in width and height and is 2.252 inches long. The OPS HD is only slightly larger. The OPS cameras also boast of a patented 8-way mounting system that gives the user an unparalleled range of mounting positions.

Tachyon Announces GunCam™ Picatinny Rail Mount

October 25, 2010

Designed for filming action in extreme conditions, Tachyon XC helmet cameras are easy-to-use and come with multiple mounting systems that can connect the cameras to goggles, helmets, sporting equipment, dashboards and more, accommodating all adventure enthusiasts.

Tachyon’s latest Picatinny Rail Mounts, priced at only $27.99, will allow anyone with the new Tachyon XC HD or the Tachyon XC Micro to easily and securely mount their helmet camera to a Picatinny rail, which is now common on firearms. And along with real firearms, these mounts will work just as well with airsoft or paintball guns that are equipped with Picatinny rails. The new Picatinny mounts are backwards compatible with all previous Tachyon XC models.

The Picatinny Rail Mount, constructed with tough zinc-alloy connections, has been successfully tested to withstand the recoil of a variety of assault rifles. The following gun models, mounted with the new Picatinny mounts, can be seen in our latest HD YouTube GunCam video: S&W MP 15-22 – 22LR, Beretta Cx4 Storm – 9mm Luger, Bushmaster AR 15 – .223, SIG SAUER SIG 556 – 5.56mm NATO, Ruger SR-556 – 5.56mm NATO, and the Springfield Armory SOCOM II – .308

Details and photos of the new Picatinny Rail Mounts in action can be found on the Tachyon XC Micro and Tachyon XC HD mounting webpages. Tachyon is also proud to announce that military and law enforcement officers who purchase a helmet camera before December 31st, 2010 will receive a free Picatinny Rail Mount. See our Military Webpage for details.

Tachyon XC Micro Picatinny Rail Mount - Ruger SR-556

“Since we are known as makers of the “tough cam”, we are always looking for ways to get our cameras into tougher situations,” said Jeff Francis, Operational Director for Tachyon, Inc. ” The business end of a high-powered firearm seemed like the perfect place to mount our camera. We trademarked the name GunCam™ to show that we are now committed to putting our cameras into the gun market. In this vein, we are excited to offer a free Picatinny mount to all police and military personal serving our country; many of them have been asking a long time for just such a gun mount.”

The new Picatinny mounts will be released simultaneously with Tachyon’s latest generation helmet camera, The 2011 Tachyon XC HD, which features HD video, extreme waterproofing, a wide-angle lens, and a remote control, all for just $179.99.

As with previous Tachyon XC models, the new HD helmet camera has more than twice the battery life of other, comparable helmet cameras and can get up to six continuous hours of recording when using a 32GB SDHC memory card. Its waterproof, tightly sealed design allows hunters to shoot HD video in rain, sleet, snow, dust and mud. But the 2011 Tachyon XC HD is more than just waterproof; the new, patented dive-lock feature allows the camera to dive to depths of up to 100 ft (30.5M) under water.

An adapter for rifles without Picatinny rails is in the works for sale later this year.  This will allow hunters and shooters the ability to attach their Picatinny Guncam to more traditional hunting rifles.
