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.

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!

Ricardo López Tugendhat ~ 3-Time IPSC World Champion (Revolver)

Ecuadorian Ricardo López Tugendhat, three-time revolver world champion, has had to overcome a massive disadvantage in his shooting career compared to most international competitors. Ecuador is a small country where it is difficult to find a sponsor, and it is not a country where you can just go out and buy all the guns and ammo that you need. If you even want to practice at home, you must first make your own bullets and loads.

Yet even with these drawbacks Ricardo has still managed to claim his many championships with his favorite guns, especially the revolver. He has been crowned the 2008, 2011, and 2014 IPSC World Champion (Revolver Division).

These days, Ricardo dominates world revolver shooting. You need to go back over 10 years to the time when Ricardo came second behind the legendary Jerry Miculek at the 2005 IPSC World Shoot.

In this video you can see him show off his skill with various guns in different tournaments. In these clips, taken with his cap-mounted Tachyon GunCam, you can see Ricardo with the CZ Shadow 9mm, the STI .40 S&W, the S&W 625 45ACP, and the S&W 929 9mm.

If you are interested in contacting Ricardo, for sponsorship or any other reason, you may do so at this address: rickyrevolver@yahoo.com.mx

The World’s Best Practical Shooter in History Puts His Name to the World’s Best Video Camera for his Sport

5-Time World Champion Éric Grauffel had never before recorded his competitions because he had never found a video camera that was up to the task. But when he found the Tachyon GunCam HD, he was so impressed that he asked Tachyon to make a special edition of the camera with his name on it.

 Éric Grauffel, also a 6-time European Champion, puts his signature to the GunCam HD: the lightest and smallest HD video camera system. It is designed to be easily mounted to caps, making it perfect for capturing intense first-person action of shooting sports.

“I highly recommend that you use this great little camera to record and analyze your stages so that you can cut seconds off of your time.”


  • One button to turn on and start recording
  • Wide-angle lens, but no fish-eye effect
  • 5+ Hours recording time with rechargeable Lithium battery
  • Able to record 30 stages of the World Shoot on one charge.
  • Uses 4 – 64GB Micro memory cards for up to 17 hours of HD video.
  • Charging cable can charge camera in the field from portable power banks.

“The GunCam HD is extremely compact and light. I attach it to my cap and think nothing more of it. It captures everything I need when shooting.”
Dave Sevigny ~ USA (11-time USPSA Champion, 9-Time IDPA Champion)

“I give the GunCam HD two thumbs up. GunCam plus the open gun equals fun!   I love this camera!”
Athena Lee ~ USA  (2-Time USPSA Nationals Open Champion, 2-Time IPSC World Shoot Open Champion)

“GunCam HD gives me a direct point of view to review my shooting. Before I would only have a video from far away to see my movements, but now I can correlate it to my shooting as well. This will help identify any deficiencies on my transitions, target acquisition, and any other inefficient movements that I could never before see.”
– JJ Racaza ~ (Team Captain – USA Gold Team)

The World’s Top Shooters use Tachyon GunCam HD to record their events

GunCam HD is not only for competition pistol shooting. It is designed for all types of guns and gun sports. Tachyoninc.com offers additional mounts for mounting your GunCam HD to nearly every type of gun. Rifles and shotguns, as well as pistols.

It is well known that the most common cause of lost video from sports cameras is because of non-fixed batteries losing contact with the circuitry. But the GunCam HD’s battery is soldered in place. It is hard-wired to withstand heavy recoil.
It has passed tests with shotguns shooting slugs, and ARs and AKs on full automatic. None of these bad boys can stop the GunCam HD from grabbing your shooting footage. This is the perfect camera for hunters and trap shooters, who wish to relive and show off their shooting prowess to friends and family, as well as to review mistakes and study means of improvement.

The Éric Grauffel Signature GunCam HD, as well as optional GunCam HD mounts, can be purchased online and at Éric’s shooting events.

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.
