Brinno TLC200 Pro HDR Time-Lapse Video Camera
Whether you're recording events, projects, or the natural world, the AA battery-powered TLC200 Pro HDR Time-Lapse Video Camera from Brinno will allow you to see and show change over a given period. It performs time-lapse photography every 0.3 sec or at selectable intervals from 1 sec - 24 hr, and instantly creates HD 1280 x 720 videos from the captured still images; no stitching or other post-processing is required. There's also a burst mode for shooting 3-5 photos in 1 sec. Videos are compressed into smaller files for easy playback on smart devices.
The TLC200 Pro features a 1.3MP, 1/3", High Dynamic Range (HDR) image sensor, which helps produce great shots with high contrast—even in challenging lighting conditions, such as those encountered at night. The camera accepts interchangeable CS-mount lenses, including the supplied 19mm (35mm equivalent) wide-angle lens, which offers 120° rotation and a fast f/2.0 aperture for effective low-light shooting. Additionally, the TLC200 Pro is equipped with a 1.44" TFT LCD monitor. Captured files are saved on the included 4GB SDHC memory card or an optional card up to 32GB in capacity.
HDR Image Sensor
The 1/3", 1.3MP High Dynamic Range (HDR) image sensor helps produce great shots with high contrast—even in challenging lighting conditions, such as those encountered at night. It can capture a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than some standard CMOS sensors can, resulting in a more accurate representation of the range of intensity levels seen by the naked eye. High, medium, and low HDR settings can be selected. The sensor records still images and HD time-lapse videos at 1280 x 720 resolution.
Instantly creates HD videos from photos captured in time-lapse mode. No stitching or other post-processing is required, and thousands of photos can be combined into one video. Choose a time interval of 0.3 sec or select one of many intervals from 1 sec - 24 hr to see change over a given period, whether you're recording events, projects, or the natural world. There's also a setting for shooting 3-5 photos in 1 sec.
Firmware for Time-Lapse Recording
Enables you to select a beginning and ending time for your time-lapse videos, e.g., start at 8 am and finish at 5 pm.
Additional Shooting Mode Options
Stop motion is available using the optional Shutter Line ATS110. Motion-activated shooting is possible via the optional Motion Sensor ATM100.
Allows you to program specific times when the camera will wake up and begin recording and when it will shut off. This means you will have complete control without having to be there to turn the camera on—just set it and forget it.
Accepts interchangeable CS-mount lenses, including the supplied 19mm (35mm equivalent), wide-angle, aspherical glass lens, which offers a fast f/2.0 aperture for effective low-light shooting and shallow depth-of-field effects. This lens, which comes pre-mounted on the camera, features a 112° field of view and can also rotate 120°, enabling panoramic image capture. Optional lenses include an 18-55mm f/1.2 with a 45mm diameter and a 24-70mm f/1.4 with a 32mm diameter. The lenses can be mounted and removed via the included screwdriver and screw. An optional IR filter can also be added.
Equipped with a 1.44" TFT LCD screen, which allows for accurate targeting of subjects and precise framing of scenes. You can also turn the time stamp and LED indicator options on and off. When on, the LED indicator will flash while capturing each frame. The LCD allows you to set a date and time and choose one of the following settings for the frequency band filter: none, 50 Hz for Europe, and 60 Hz for USA. Additionally, it shows you the remaining battery life and firmware version, and tells you whether the SD card is full, missing, or in need of replacement. The monitor turns off after 50 sec of inactivity, in order to save power.
Scene Settings for Night Shooting
For a standard twilight scene, program the camera for an exposure time of up to 1 sec. For a night scene, try 2 sec. When photographing the moon, 2 sec is optimal—unless you're shooting in ASAP mode, in which case 4 sec is best. When shooting stars, choose 4 sec, or 8 sec in ASAP mode.
Large pixel size of 4.2um and notable low-light sensitivity of 3650mV/lux-sec enable recording of sharp images in dim lighting situations. The updated firmware allows for fast adjustment to greater variations in light.
Playback on Mobile Devices
Using the optional Brinno ABR100 or another compatible card reader, play your videos on your smartphone or tablet. Videos are compressed into smaller files to make them easy to play and share.
Good: High compression rate produces the least image data of the 3 settings, so it does not yield the highest quality but works best for long capture periods
Better: Moderate compression rate results in more image data and works well for general use
Best: Low compression rate produces the maximum amount of image data to achieve the highest quality
Camera captures files to SD or SDHC memory cards up to 32GB in capacity, and includes a 4GB SDHC card.
Accessory Mounting and Connection
Has a tripod mount on the bottom, as well as an extension connector for the attachment of the optional Brinno Time-Lapse accessories, which include the Shutter Line and Motion Sensor.
Optional Waterproof Housing
The water/weatherproof ATH120 housing provides protection for your camera against the elements. It is a clear case with a built-in lens port that is optically neutral, meaning it will not distort the field of view in any way.
Brinno Weather-Resistant Housing for TLC200 Pro HDR Time Lapse Video Camera
This Weather-Resistant Housing from Brinno is compatible with the TLC200 Pro HDR Time Lapse Video Camera. Its water-resistant design protects your investment against the elements while affording easy access to controls. The case is clear to allow for monitoring of the watertight seal and the camera. It features a built-in, flat lens port that does not distort the image or reduce the clarity of the lens. The housing is configured with a standard 1/4"-20 threaded hole on the bottom for connection to an optional tripod or other support system, such as Brinno's #AWM100 Wall Mount.
