From the Manufacturer



UPDATE: Brinno has released new firmware for the TLC200 Pro with additional functionality. You will now be able to select a begin and finish time for your time lapse videos, (for example, start at 8 am, finish at 5 pm). Brinno has also added support for Wi-Fi interconnectivity using the popular Eye-Fi Pro X2 SD card, enabling video to be downloaded from your TLC200 Pro via a wireless network. The firmware also allows for fast adjustment to greater variations in light. Firmware updates are downloadable from the manufacturer’s website.

Capture Stunning HDR Time Lapse Video in any Light

The Brinno TLC200 Pro is the world's first HDR time lapse video camera. With a 1.3 megapixel High Dynamic Range (HDR) image sensor, the TLC200 Pro produces stunning 720p time lapse video under virtually any lighting conditions, from low light to intense backlighting.

HDR Sensor

The TLC200 Pro's 115 dB high dynamic range (HDR) sensor captures a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than a standard CMOS sensor. The resulting HDR video more accurately portrays the range of intensity levels found in real life, from strong backlighting to faint starlight.

Image quality is primarily determined not by resolution, but by pixel size of the sensor. The TLC200 Pro’s ultra-high pixel size allows you take clear time lapse video even in a low light environment!

Ultra-High Dynamic Range

HDR Video Instantly

The TLC200 Pro produces ready-to-view HDR video at the push of a button with no need to spend hours on post-processing.

Powerful, Yet Simple to Operate

To use, simply set your time interval on the 1.44 inch LCD preview screen, aim, and wait for the video to finish. The interval between frames is selectable between 0.3 seconds and 24 hours. The preview screen allows for accurate targeting of subjects and precise framing of scenes. The TLC200 Pro can be tripod-mounted or simply set on a flat surface.

DSLR Cameras vs. TLC200 Pro for Time Lapse Video

There are two compelling advantages to using the TLC200 Pro rather than a DSLR camera for shooting time lapse video:

Instant Results: With the TLC200 Pro, an AVI video file is created in the camera during recording, which results in files being downloadable in seconds, not hours, with no stitching or converting required.

Shutter Life of DSLR Cameras: The average shutter life of a DSLR camera is 100,000 shots. Depending on the time interval used, you could reach this number within hours or days of shooting time lapse with your expensive DSLR camera.

Multiple Viewing Options

To View on a Windows 98 and later PC:

  1. Transfer video via a micro USB cable, or
  2. Transfer via the included 4 GB SD card (up to 32 GB supported)

To view on an OTG-equipped smart phone:

  1. Use Brinno's optional OTG Card Reader to retrieve your video from the camera’s SD card, or
  2. Use a micro USB cable to retrieve the video file from the camera

Doubles as a Stop Action Camera

You can create stop action movies using the optional external shutter release, sold separately.

To create a stop action movie using optional external shutter release:
  1. Build the scene
  2. Attach shutter release and position the camera
  3. Shoot, moving objects slightly between each shot
  4. View and share! Your stop action video is stored on the SD card

Hello all, after reading the few available reviews and a few youtube videos I ordered the camera (PRO HDR) as soon as it was available. It arrived on time and well packed. The first thing I noticed was that it seamed smaller than what I expected. The package contained the camera with the 19mm kit lens, 4 regular AA batteries, a little screw and a screwdriver and the manual... read the manual, sufficiently informative.

Tested the cam and the true benefit was the battery life, it truly does wonders, I had it shooting a timelapse for 16hrs and the battery meter still shows fully charged. The build of the cam is nice, the only thing about the build was the kit lens is just way to wide, it seams wider than the one on my DRIFT GHOST and the GOPRO HERO3, I find it almost unusable for the timelapses I wanted to do. I wanted to order an additional lens but they are just overpriced at $400 for 18-55.

What bothered me the most was the manual focus with the built-in screen is just complementary useless, it is pretty much trial and error when it comes to focus. The camera has the ability to zoom in for focus purposes but the image shown on the vertically oriented screen is just as poor as it gets.

Another thing that I found strange was the GUI, it seams to me that it was made for people that do not use any other cameras, the settings of white balance and the other manual settings are deep in the GUI. Another thing about the GUI is, no matter what setting you change, one you hit OK you are back in the root menu, then you need to click your self back in to the are you were at to change the next thing in line or if you mistakenly changed something... I just find the keys and the GUI very fiddly at the least.

Ordered this on a whim because if something takes good pictures or has the potential for interesting movie making, I am interested. Almost cancelled it wondering "what did I need to time lapse?", and glad I didn't. I should also clarify that I bought this on a lightning deal that was less than the 299$ price it's currently at (Oct 2013), and I feel the 299$ is too much, but the 219$ or so that I paid was just fine.

For me the biggest conveniences of this unit are that it takes regular AA batteries and they last FOREVER. I've probably recorded 5-6 days worth of captures and batteries were only 1/2 dead. The other awesome thing is unlike a GoPro or other non-purpose-built units, the time lapse in this unit is automatic. When you pull out the SDcard your movie is on it. That is awesome to me. No more animation shop or imovie creations - just slap it in and watch your movie. It still produces a file that is easily edited in most common editors too - bonus.

I also like that it has a tripod mount on the bottom as well as a big rubber pad. So far I have just let it sit around under its own weight on the pad, but the tripod will come in handy if I ever wanted to use this in a car or something (I have RAM mounts in my duty vehicle for example).

On the down side, the menuing system is a little old school and I wish the display was touchscreen and a little faster. But really the settings you need are mostly there. Yes you do get bumped out to the main screen once you "set" a change, annoying. But you can adjust the frame rate (for playback encoding), the capture rate/interval, set a timer for capture period (days hours minutes) and even tweak the scene for stars, daylight, etc.

I waited for weeks for more (than 3) reviews before finally pulling the trigger on this one. I've done 2 tests at different settings so far (in daylight) and it works quite well! So it's not 1080p. So what? I found that a simple upscale in Premiere Pro with a moderate amount of sharpening fixes that. I own a GoPro Hero 3 and had thought of using it for time lapse in the field. Unfortunately, you'll never get the battery to last beyond 2-3 hours! And while there are plenty of external power supplies that WILL last overnight (check out the Anker Astro 3), there is the issue of either waterproofing a GoPro Skeleton Case (which you'll need to attach external power) or modding a standard GoPro waterproof housing (e.g. drilling just the right size hole for the miniUSB plug). Plus, there's no editing: It outputs AVIs. Very nice... So, no, it won't blow you away. But it's a nice toy for about the right price.

Very clever and capable camera. It might seem that it's a bit frivolous buying a camera whose main purpose is to shoot time lapse videos (I haven't tried the Motion Detection Trigger accessory yet) but think about it. Whenever you have a social event I know I'm always distracted by wanting to take still photos, trying to capture the right moment, changing batteries, etc. etc. But if you set up one of these Brinno's you can set back and enjoy the get together while this provides the photo coverage. My friends love getting the resulting video which captures so many fun moments. As it advertises, the output is a FINISHED video ... no having to convert stills into a video. It's low light capabilities are very impressive ... better then a GoPro3 even. This video clip is embarrassing but it so well shows it's low light capabilities: https://vimeo.com/67400404

The room was only lit by the sliver of light coming in from behind the shade. In fact I MINUSED the exposure by two lines worth in the Custom Settings to help preserve the feeling of darkness. Yes, I'm a Pro ... so I LOVE having convenience on my side when I'm doing things for fun! I need to get the water proof housing so that I can keep shooting with the kids spraying water, my racing competitors spraying champaign and lovely Rain to Sunshine time lapses ... hopefully with a Rainbow forming. Check out the Brinno Facebook page for my ideas and samples of what other folks are doing with their Brinnos: https://www.facebook.com/BrinnoInc
