Product - Tachyon XC 2009 version
. Very durable. Feels tough and very well built.
. 640x480 video quality is excellent under sunlight or a bright area.
. Video quality is also quite smooth.
. Versatility and practicality.
. Audio recording quality is almost zero when the case is locked for waterproofing. (Take the water proofing case off and the audio isnt too bad.
. Low light quality is very poor. You loose about 80% of the video quality due to lack of light.
. A tad heavier than I expected. (But i cant compare to anything else.)Feels like theres an iphone tied on my head when im using it.
WOULD I RECOMMEND?? Without a doubt. If you are an extreme sports fanatic that mostly goes out in the daylight, and you dont mind creating a video with your own music, this is the ultimate bang for your buck helmet cam and very hard to go past.
WOULD I BUY IT AGAIN IF IT BREAKS?? Definately. I snowboard, play tennis, soccer/football, XC/Trail MTB riding/racing, race car driving and surfing so this camera is the perfect companion for capturing those extreme moments.
