Took a work break and got outside for bit to cruise with the XC. Just held it free, not mounted to a helmet so that I could achieve some good angles for a demo video. I will get out and some great sessions with a whole crew eventually on some good hills. Enjoy!

Tachyon Inc. Launches Latest Generation Helmet Camera
Lewisville, TX. September 23, 2008 – Tachyon, Inc. announces the release of its new product, the Tachyon XC. The Tachyon XC is the latest generation video and still helmet camera designed for filming extreme action in extreme conditions. It is extremely rugged and very simple to use, while delivering up to 30FPS of video.
The Tachyon XC is shockproof, waterproof, and foolproof. Take it anywhere on land, into the sea, and into the air and bring back your stunts, adventures, and bloopers. It comes with a remote control and custom-designed mounting accessories. A patented shock-proof battery system eliminates an all-too common problem among other action cameras; the loss of power and recorded files caused by the jarring loose of the batteries. This innovation ensures that videos taken in challenging and perhaps impossible-to-repeat situations will not be lost. And unlike other action cameras which need to rely on an external waterproof case, the Tachyon XC’s housing is already waterproof, allowing you to film to a record depth of 28 feet (8.5 meters) and protecting the camera from adverse elements.
The Tachyon XC provides multiple recording levels, allowing you to customize your video’s resolution and recording times according to your needs. It also has a stealth recording mode, ideal for surveillance videos. It makes use of the common 1, 2, and 4GB SD and SDHC cards, but it is also the only helmet cam on the market that is compatible with the 8GB SDHC card. This can give the user up to 16 hours of video on a single card. For more information on the Tachyon XC please contact Chris Whitehouse or visit http://www.tachyoninc.com
