The 2010 Tachyon XC Micro is the industry’s smallest helmet camera with features like water-proofing without an external case (100ft.), a patented shockproof design, wide field of vision, and superior light-gathering ability. The XC Micro is also the only helmet camera on the market that can accept the entire range of Micro SDHC cards, from 4 to 32GB. The XC Micro’s condensed size combined with its easy to use nature makes it the ideal helmet camera for the adventure enthusiast.
Designed for filming action in extreme conditions, the XC Micro comes with a universal mounting system that can connect the camera to goggles, helmets, sporting equipment, dashboards and more to accommodate the many diverse situations users run into. The sheer size, simplicity and extreme ruggedness of the XC Micro will allow users to forget the camera and focus on their sport.
The new XC Micro boasts a high-dynamic image sensor and a 90 degree wide angle lens, matching the sweet spot of human vision, allowing users to capture clear, undistorted video in low-light situations or underwater.
With loss of video due to loose battery connections being the No. 1 helmet camera complaint, Tachyon developed and patented a shockproof battery system to keep the camera’s batteries locked and secure, so video can survive the shocks of the most adverse situations. Camera users can have peace-of-mind as they capture demanding and often once-in-a-lifetime extreme situations.
The XC Micro’s 4-hour battery life will also tide users through their adventures, without the worry of dead batteries that plagues other more power-hungry, expensive helmet cameras. The XC Micro’s use of common AAA batteries, rather than proprietary ones, means users can easily grab more wherever batteries are sold.
