Best HD small cam on the market

Marshall Pankhurst, Amazon
13 November 2013
  • Summary: We have used it for many things, it can be hidden in your house, garage or any room. The voice is fantastic, the hd video is better than expected. I now have bought 4, since catching the thief taking my tools out of the garage and showing the police the whole video, no more problems have developed. Oh yes, I would recommend others to buying this video cam, its great.

Best camera for paintball!

Torako, Amazon
31 October 2013
  • Summary: I got this camera to mount to my paintball mask for game play footage. The video is great and since you can use different micro sd cards it can video a lot. Battery life is pretty long, say 4+ hours at least. Its easy to use with a single button. There are tons of different mounts for this to attach to your marker or mask. Its light and small so unlike the go-pro, you dont have a huge camera sticking out when you play.

nice video, incoherent sound, limited file type,no support

Greenthumb, Amazon
12 August 2013
  • Summary: Pros: Great size, nice mounting options, great video quality. No issue with the connection to the computer as others have reported. Cons: User guides, both the supplied "Quick start" and on-line version, are pathetic: terrible graphics, and truly limited directions (they both are a little hint at just how non-serious Tachyon is about supporting their product). Used as a helmet cam on a motorcycle, all you can hear is wind noise.

Stopped working!

V. Hutson, Amazon
3 August 2013
  • Summary: I brought this for my son about two years ago. He used it a couple times and it worked fine. He didn't use it for perhaps a year and now it won't work. It turns on--but it doesn't record anything. What a disappointment! I read another review here that indicated the same thing happened to them. So, if you do purchase this item make sure you use it on a regular basis or else you just wasted a lot of money!

Compact, easy to use, adaptable to most environments

Robert L. Vaessen, Amazon
30 June 2013
  • Summary: An excellent product at a low price. A little known brand with big potential. The size of this product (really small) makes it less conspicuous than some competitors. It's light weight, easy to operate, comes with numerous accessories and doesn't take a rocket scientist to operate. I've owned it for a few months now; taken approximately 12 hours worth of video (more than 30 different videos) and I haven't had a single problem yet.

VERY poor video quality

Mike Smith, Amazon
23 June 2013
  • Summary: Don't buy this if you want to use when moving. I used this camera horseback riding yesterday through the woods. Mounted to the side of my helmet, similar to as shown on box camera came in. Went from bright sunlight to deep shade and everything between. Video quality is very poor. Very poor. Brights are washed out as pure white. Darks are pure black. Everything between is not in focus. Focus improves and colors deepen IF you stand still, but even then, not very good.

Here's my video review of the Tachyon OPS HD

Francis I. Delapena "fdelapena", Amazon
6 June 2013
  • Summary: Length:: 3:14 Mins The camera was mounted onto my RC Heli: * No "gel" effect whenever there is some kind of impact or vibration. It stays smooth the whole entire time. * Lightweight * Comes with plenty of very useful accessories * Shockproof, water resistant even without the silicone cover * Smooth video. No "gel" effect or skipped frames.

Fail

J. Waliszewski, Amazon
20 May 2013
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this camera, but after two months of use, it stopped recharging. Also, the backup battery kit likes to turn off and jostle free, so really, this is an 'un-durable' micro camera at best, and waste of money at worst. For me, this is a Complete fail.

died after warranty ran out.

rtel2000, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: Worked well when it worked. Felt cheaply made. Plastic housing, Plastic clips and mounts, The clear plastic cover snapped the 2nd day. Be very gentle with that. When it stopped working, it wasent realted to an accident or damage. I had not used it for some time. maybe a few months and decide to charge it up. It never came on after that. Conclusion: Spend a little more. Do it only once. Now I have to spend again to buy something that hopefully will last.
