(May 11, 2011) Tachyon®, Inc. – The little underwater camera that challenged the video quality of the high-dollar professional market, has released an HD version of their Tachyon Micro DiveCam. This new camera takes the Micro’s already crystal-clear video and sharpens it up to a dazzling HD 720p.
The most common problem with dive cameras is the water pressure turning the camera off. Tachyon has solved that problem with their patented dive-lock feature. The dive-lock is a switch located inside the camera and, when locked, camera’s software disengages the ON/OFF button, preventing water pressure from prematurely shutting the camera off.
The Micro HD’s 135° wide-angle lens and high-dynamic light sensor helps you to catch more of your underwater adventure than ever before. Using the recommended Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries, users get over two and half hours of hands-free, underwater footage to depths of over 100 ft (4ATM).
Tachyon Micro users include scuba divers, free divers, professional fire and rescue dive teams and the US Navy, who use it for training drills.
Tachyon Micro cameras are currently being used by Elevated Scuba to explore the depths of Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the United States. Tachyon has officially tested the Micro at depths of 100 feet, but as you can see in the above video, the scuba team is taking it down past 168 feet.
The Micro and Micro HD weigh in at only 4 ounces and can easily be mounted to a diving mask with the included goggle strap mount. The Tachyon Micro and Micro HD are waterproof as is, and do not require an additional bulky, waterproof case. The Micros need no DVR or software; they record onto a Micro SDHC card (up to 32GB) and are plug-and-play with both PC and Mac®.
Not only are the Micro and Micro HD perfect for diving and underwater activities, but they are perfect for all kinds of sports. They’ve been used for skiing, snowboarding, offroading, hunting, skateboarding, and even flying. They really are the ultimate all around multi-use cameras.
And for the Paintball and Airsoft communities, Tachyon offers an optional Picatinny Rail Mount for that amazing, first-person view.
