Preparing Tactacam for Operation
(Click here for PDF Version)
Step 1. After removing your new Tactacam 2.0 from its package, you must remove the Tactacam from the stabilizer by unthreading the stabilizer bolt located on the bottom of the stabilizer. The Tactacam will slide out once it’s loose. *Note – Please make sure you do this in a safe location to avoid dropping the Tactacam and causing damage.
Step 2. Once the Tactacam has been removed from both the packaging and the stabilizer, unscrew the End Cap which is on the opposite end from the Tactacam lens.
Step 3. Now that the End Cap has been removed you will see the settings of your Tactacam. Here you will want to check to make sure the battery is seated correctly by removing and reinserting firmly.
Step 4. Choose your desired settings (Photo or Video Mode/ 720p or 1080p Resolution) and insert your Micro SD Card (sold separately). The Micro SD Card should be inserted with the printed side facing the battery and the black side facing upwards towards the Photo/Video switch and mic. Screw on the End Cap and you are now ready to operate your new Tactacam.
Step 5. Install the Tactacam Stabilizer on your bow. It is recommended, once the stabilizer is snug, to give 2 more full turns and center the camera with your bow. It is important not to over tighten the rubber dampener between the bow and stabilizer. The rubber damper will help r educe vibration and keep your camera in position.
A Class 10 MicroSD card up to 32 GB is required.

- SanDisk Ultra 32GB MicroSDHC Add to cart
- SanDisk Extreme 32GB MicroSDHC (SDSDQXL-032G)
- Lexar 32GB SDHC 633x (LSDMI32GBBNL633R)
Operating your Tactacam
Easy to use….Tactacam will turn on and record with the push of one button.
Turning On Your Tactacam: Once you have prepared your Tactacam for operation, briefly press the power button, located on the top-center of your Tactacam, within 3 seconds the green LED indicator light comes on and you feel 1 long and 2 short vibrations. Your Tactacam will automatically start recording and the green LED indicator will begin to blink.
Turning Off Your Tactacam: Press and hold the power button for 3 seconds until you feel 2 long vibrations and the green LED indicator is no longer on. Your Tactacam is now powered off fully. This can be performed at any time, including while recording.
Pausing Your Tactacam: When your Tactacam is On and recording you may pause your recording by briefly pressing the button once (1 short vibration and solid green light). To resume, press once (2 short vibrations) and you are back to recording.
Standby Mode: While your Tactacam is On and has not been recording or inactive for 5 minutes (default setting), it will shut itself off to help you conserve battery life. During Standby you may start recording by pressing the button only once. Two short vibrations and a blinking green light in the button will indicate you are now recording again.
Charging Remove the back cap and plug the appropriate side of the provided USB cord into your camera. Then plug the other side of the USB cord into the provided wall charger or your computer. You will see a blue and red light. After 10 min there will only be a red light. Red light will remain on till the battery is fully charged.
Positioning Your Tactacam: While using the Stabilizer or gun mount be sure to position the power button facing upwards at all times. The camera lens should be pointed in the direction of the subject you wish to record.
