After running across this review of the Brinno TLC 200 Pro time lapse camera, I have decided to stay out of the review business and leave the work to a true professional. In this case, Juan Bagnell of SomeGadgetGuy.com knocked his review out of the park.

Juan's review of the Pro is very accurate, informative and simply the best review I have yet to see. Other reviews may be good but they tend to miss details and sometimes give misleading information. This review is perfect and knowing the camera as well as I do, I 100% endorse this content. Great job with this production Juan!

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.

 

Why I Selected Squarespace for my Site

 The last version of my web site powered by Viewbook lacked content, had Flash only galleries and very limited growth options, but served me well for a couple of years.

There are many good template driven web site programs available for photographers to showcase their work and I have used a few of them. With this latest update to my site I really wanted to focus on content rather than just a flashy portfolio. I have things to say and the other sites just fell short on options.

My final decision was between Squarespace and Photoshelter. As a photographer I really wanted to make Photoshelter work for me, they provide some excellent resource materials and I highly regard what they have to offer. However, I have different services, wanted a blog, text on my home page and more. With Photoshelter the only way it appeared I could accomplish what I wanted was by using a WordPress theme, manual customization and pulling a blog from a third party service. I even looked into hiring a Photoshelter Certified Consultant to get to the point I wanted with a price estimate of over $2,000.

Maybe I just did not get past the research stage with Photoshelter and give them a fair chance. If you solely want to show off your work, sell some photos and still have a very nice site Photoshelter may work for you.

I signed up for the Squarespace free trial and am now not looking back. The first thing I noticed is there is no credit card required for the two week demo period. You have nothing to loose, sign up today and start building an impressive site now.

Everything within this site, including the blog is created with drag and drop simplicity. Some formatting took some getting used to but if you take the full two weeks and play with it on and off you will be surprised with what you can accomplish.

The Squarespace example sites give you a good feeling for what you can do but don't showcase the full potential of what you have available on the editing side. You really need to dig in and try it out. After some practice you will be amazed with the simplicity, options and what you can accomplish without any coding or headaches.

For those not looking for a portfolio site Squarespace is an excellent fit for any small business or organization. Squarespace makes it so easy to have a nice looking web site up and running quickly at a starting price of only $8.00 per month.

All-in-all, I am very satisfied with my Squarespace experience. I will add to this blog as time goes on and let you know how well it grows with me and its performance on search engines.
