Tachyon Releases Worlds Smallest and Lightest SD and HD Helmet Cameras

  (May 09, 2011)

Lewisville, TX. (PRWEB) May 09, 2011

The OPS weighs in at only one ounce and measures just .95 inches in width and height and is 2.252 inches long. The OPS HD is only slightly larger. The OPS cameras also boast of a patented 8-way mounting system that gives the user an unparalleled range of mounting positions. The camera can face forward or backward towards the user, and can also rotate inside it's mounts from the 12 to the 9 to the 6 to the 3 o'clock positions. This lets the user position the camera correctly, so that they can film from any direction.

The camera couldnt be easier to use. It is ready to go right out of the box and has a simple, one-button operation. The cameras are also plug-and-play with a PC or a Mac.

The OPS line comes equipped with three standard mounts: A clip mount, with multiple angles of rotation. This mount is perfect for caps and straps and collars. A contour mount, for mounting to curved surfaces, such as motorcycle or bicycle helmets. And a standard tripod mount that will attach to any ¼-20 inch universal tripod screw.

For more extreme activities, such as paintball and airsoft, and riding around dust and gravel, the OPS comes with a extremely durable piece of clear plastic Impact Armor, that fits snugly over the camera and mounts.

Additional GunCam mounts are targeted at hunters and other fans of gun sports. These include a patented 8-direction Picatinny rail mount, three different shotgun and scope rails, and a rifle rail. The zinc-alloy Picatinny rail mount and rails allow for the secure mounting of the OPS to handguns, rifles, shotguns and assault rifles, without any modifications being done to the gun.

The OPS cameras record around two hours of video onto an 8GB Micro SD card. They have a built-in Li-Ion rechargeable battery that is perfect for filming in extreme temperatures. They feature a high-dynamic light sensor with superior light gathering ability that makes them ideal for low-light situations and indoor filming.

We design our products with the specific needs of our customers in mind, said John Chase, Sales Director for Tachyon, Inc. The cameras are virtually weightless and the 8 directional mount is groundbreaking. The GunCam accessories are a hunters dream come true."

To go along with the small size and light weight, the OPS prices are small and light as well. The standard OPS package is $99.99 and the HD package is $149.99. Any aspiring action film makers can now easily record and share their videos. The OPS cameras will be available this summer. For more information, or to pre-order from the first batch, visit
