Tachyon Inc. introduces the 2021 Tachyon GunCam® mini for Practical Shooting

Houston, TX – July 15, 2020  

Chris Whitehouse – Creative Director

The Full-Size GunCam® Classic has been the camera of choice for the world’s best shooters to the C-Class shooters of the USPSA, IPSC and IDPA to document their matches and to improve their skills. It records in 1080p with excellent sound recording and light sensitivity.  Its built-in rechargeable Lithium battery, allows shooters to record 2.5 hours per charge. The GunCam® Classic can make use of up to 256GB micro cards (sold separately). The software, which uses DCIM, easily imports to iOS devices. Shooter can choose between a manual recording mode that allows them to stop recording when they want, or a Match Mode that automatically stops the recording after 2 minutes, letting them keep their mind on the shooting and enabling easier editing of videos.

The 2021 GunCam® mini is a new family member, originally set to launch at the IPSC Handgun World Shoot this November. It uses identical hardware and software to the legendary camera, but is just half the size and weight. It comes in at just 1.5 oz (42.5 grams) for the camera and the cap mount combined. It is so small that, the shooter may even mount under the bill of the cap, to record from the most realistic forehead view, without blocking the shooter’s sight. The mini does not have the luxury of recording as long as the original GunCam, but with the 2 minutes auto-stop option, it can record over twenty stages per charge, which is more than enough for any shooting event.

The 2021 GunCam® mini can make use of up to 256GB micro cards (sold separately). The package includes a newly-designed Cap Mount with mounting screw, a charging and upload cable, and a Rain/Dust-proof cover with glass lens cover for excellent protection from the elements while ensuring clear video.

The software, which uses DCIM, easily exports files to iOS devices. You may use an optional adapter to watch your video on Android devices, or your can Plug & Play with PC’s and Mac’s. Supported by all major video players and editing software packages.

Tachyon accepts Pre-Orders for the GunCam mini until August 15, 2020.

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.

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.
