    Good price on the 720p version. The real question is how will it perform when in rapid motion? Inexpensive cameras typically use rolling shutters which result in wavy video when moving fast. If they avoid that, it could be a winner.

    It doesn't say how many frames per second it shoots. 60 would be nice but 30 is more likely.
    Work: the 8 hours that separates bike rides.

    That explains why I get wavy video on my Kodak Playsport on descents. It was inexpensive, at only $117 before tax.

    According to tachyon's website, the SD and HD versions both record at 30 fps.

    I watched their video. Once again, no test of the audio quality of the camera Audio was muted except when the narrator was speaking.
