GunCam for Clays & Hunting New Software

GunCam for Clays & Hunting announces new software to greatly enhance your shooting videos.

GunCam for Clays & Hunting now offers two new enhancements for your shooting videos:
For your free update, please contact support@tachyoninc.com with the subject: GunCam for Clays Software Update.

New Crosshairs:
These new crosshairs improve the visibility against the variety of backgrounds most commonly encountered when shooting.

New Cross Sky

The crosshairs stand out well against the bright sky, helping students to know how well they are leading their targets.

New Cross Woods

The darker and more difficult background of sporting clays is also no problem with the new two-color crosshairs.

New Auto-Shutoff Feature
With our new auto-shutoff feature, you will never have to worry if you have accidentally turned off your camera when you thought that you were turning it on. Now you just turn it on before you begin shooting your station and it will automatically shut off 30 seconds later.

Because you have better things to think about than what your camera is doing.

There is no need to snap your gun closed or open with the correct force or to move it with the correct speed and acceleration.

Another bonus is that your file sizes will all be of consistent size and length, making it very easy to search out every station for later viewing and critique.

If you prefer to shut off your camera manually, we still support that option, It is all controlled by a single switch.

Crosshair Alignment
As before, there is no need for users to manually adjust the crosshairs. When you mount your camera to your gun, the mechanical design of the camera will automatically align it correctly.

Tachyon GunCam to Show GunCam for Clays at 2017 World English Championship

World English

From April 25 to April 30, 2017 Tachyon GunCam will be presenting our GunCam for Clays at the 2017 World English Sporting Championship, taking place at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio Texas.

Be sure to stop by the Vendor Mall to visit us and take a look at and pick up our new Gun Camera. It is designed specifically for clay shooters.

And as for shooting coaches, they will have their lessons reinforced when their students can see very clear video evidence of what was done wrong and what was done right.

The GunCam will capture video for all of your shooting, both in practice or in competition. There is no better tool for improving your scores than seeing your shots recorded straight from the barrel of your gun.

“GunCam’s field of target reference, excellent visual definition, and long recording time is an outstanding training tool that I use and highly recommend as a shotgun coach and competitor.
After practice and before a tournament, reviewing footage of properly executed shots helps greatly to reinforce a positive sight picture in one’s memory, thus leading to successful scores.”

Tachyon GunCam: University of Maryland Shotgun Sports Team Takes Trophy

ACUI Trophy Female Sporting Clays Invitational

Tachyon GunCam offers its congratulations to the University of Maryland Shotgun Sports Team for its success at the just completed ACUI Collegiate Clay Target Championships. They took 1st Place for Females in the Sporting Clays Invitational.

This team is the very first to use our GunCam for Clays in their training.

GunCam for Clays works closely with their head coach, Anne Mauro, who says that it is an essential tool to reinforce her instructions. Nothing beats seeing clear video of what you are doing wrong and what you are doing right.

“GunCam’s field of target reference, excellent visual definition, and long recording time is an outstanding training tool that I use and highly recommend as a shotgun coach and competitor.

After practice and before a tournament, reviewing footage of properly executed shots helps greatly to reinforce a positive sight picture in one’s memory, thus leading to successful scores.”

Coaches and shooters from other teams stopped by our booth and showed great interest in the GunCam for Clays. We are sure that the cameras they are taking back with them will have an impact on their training and their future successes.

Tachyon GunCam for Clays mounts easily and securely beneath the barrel of your gun. It is light, but rugged, and invisible from the shooter’s point of view.

Our software imposes crosshairs in the center of the Full-HD 1080p video, showing you where your gun is pointed. We mechanically designed the camera’s casing so that when mounted it will consistently point to the same spot, ensuring that videos of your shooting will be will be an accurate learning tool.

Note that the GunCam for Clays will not have the same perfection of accuracy that is required with a sniper rifle and scope, but it will be accurate enough for shotgun work and be consistent.

Tachyon GunCam Launches New Video Camera for Clays & Hunting

The favorite camera of the world’s top sport shooters now takes aim at Clays and Hunting.

 

Tachyon GunCam® is glad to announce the new GunCam® for Clays & Hunting, propelling Tachyon into a new area of shooting sports.

Tachyon is known for making the popular GunCam® for pistol and 3-Gun competitions that is used by national and international champions of the USPSA, IDPA and IPSC. We have often been approached and contacted by shotgun enthusiasts who urged us to make a mount and camera for the shotgun market and especially for the clay-shooting sports of trap, skeet, sporting clays, and five stand.

Shot-sequence

To fulfill these wishes, we have worked with University of Maryland and NRA shotgun coach and champion shooter Anne Mauro to design a light, rugged, simple-to-operate, Full-HD 1080p GunCam® specifically for clay shooting and hunting. This new camera is made with the hardware, lens and software that are especially tuned for those sports.

Included in the Box Clays Cam

The rugged metal mount for this camera has been designed to secure beneath the barrels of over & under and semiautomatic shotguns. Mounting accessories allow mounting to 12, 20, 28 gauge Over & Under and semiautomatic shotguns without modification of the gun and without danger of scratching. The lightness of both camera and mount will not affect the gun’s balance, and the position will be completely out of the shooter’s line of sight.

“GunCam®’s field of target reference, excellent visual definition, and long recording time is an outstanding training tool that I use and highly recommend as a shotgun coach and competitor.
 After practice and before a tournament, reviewing footage of properly executed shots helps greatly to reinforce a positive sight picture in one’s memory, thus leading to successful scores.”

Stop-Sign-at-150-YardsCrosshairs, superimposed in the center of the videos, will help you judge the quality of your aim when reviewing the day’s videos. Shooters will also have the option of flipping a switch for an increased zoom level, giving a tighter view of the target which will allow hunters with rifles to bring back video of targets up to 150 yards away.
The GunCam® for Clays & Hunting can record on battery alone for over two hours, and when plugged into a portable power bank can record while charging. With an optional 64GB memory card you will then be able to record 8 hours of 1080p video. This is ideal for long days of hunting when you must not worry about turning on your camera in time for your shot.

Clay-Slide-E

The Full-HD 1080p GunCam® for Clays & Hunting, which includes the camera, metal gun mount, mounting pads to accommodate various barrel diameters, USB Cable for camera charging and video upload, and a 110V adapter is shipping now for only $229.99 from Tachyon’s Clay Shooting page and Amazon.com. No sales tax other than for TX residents when ordering from Tachyon’s website.

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
