I have started a retail web site devoted to Brinno time lapse camera solutions with a focus on prepurchase customer eduction and project support. All of my current Brinno related content is at the new site. Please visit us at www.TimeLapseCameras.com. Since you have an interest in this article you should check out our Brinno Learning Series.
I have wanted to do my own review of the Brinno TLC200 Pro Time Lapse camera for some time. However, I just ran across this excellent and very detailed review by Lon Seidman.
In my opinion, this review is a great introduction to one of the time lapse cameras I use for many of my projects.
At the 4:30 mark Lon is critical of the preview screen, I do agree to some extent, but I personally feel the preview screen does what it is intended for, framing your shot. If you are having fun with the camera the screen is adequate. If I have a paying job, I typically view a quick test clip on a laptop just to make certain the video is framed and exposed correctly.
Additional notes from my perspective.
- The Micro USB port can be used to provide an external power supply to the camera.
- Depending on the shooting interval AA batteries can power the camera for a month or longer. My typical long term construction projects are shot with one frame every 10 or 15 minutes.
Overall this is good review for anyone looking into the Brinno TLC200 Pro.
