The Brinno TLC200 is a new class of camera designed to make HD time lapse photography simple, yet it has the flexibility to change lenses and custom program time intervals for the serious time lapse movie maker. The TLC200 has advanced power management, providing months of battery life for extended duration capture periods. It even has an optional external shutter release for creating stop action movies (model ATS100 Shutter Release Cable sold separately). The 1.44 inch LCD preview screen allows for accurate targeting of subjects and precise framing of scenes. The interest in time lapse photography has been growing steadily in recent years, as shown by the vast numbers of time lapse movies being posted to video sharing sites. In the past the user had to use an expensive digital camera making the camera unavailable for normal use while making the movie; but not any longer. To use the TLC200, simply turn it on, set a time interval, aim the camera and wait for the video to finish. The TLC200 can be mounted on a tripod or simply set on a flat surface. An optional wide angle lens is also available (model ATL045, sold separately). Output format: AVI (video), JPEG (still image mode using optional shutter line).Resolution: 1280 x 720, 640 x 480.Field of view: 59 degrees.

LCD screen: 1.44 inch TFT LCD. Power source: batteries, 4xAA (included) or DC in 5 volts (micro USB connector, not included).

Cons: There is no way to delete vids from the camera itself. There is no menu system on the camera to view how many vids you've made. There is no playback function for watching the vids on the camera. There is no format mode for formatting the memory card in the camera. You can ONLY watch the vids on your computer.
Lastly, and I found this out the hard way. Hint: Read the instructions before trying to plug in a mini-usb cable. The plug is for External Power Source ONLY! I completely destroyed the port on mine trying to plug a mini-usb cable into this port. This of course means you CANNOT download your vids from this camera to your computer via this port! You have to have a card reader in order to transfer your files to your computer. Fortunately I have a card reader so this is not a problem for me, but be warned, you will need one if you buy this camera.
Overall, it's very cool but I feel they need to be a little more upfront about its "features"
This new model addresses all of my issues.
1-It's much smaller and compact, looks and feels solid!
2-The screen is perfect for changing settings and preview of coverage area.
3-Tiltable lens is a very nice added feature when you don't have a tripod around.
4-The angle of view is somewhat narrow for anything indoors, like the original, the wide angle attachment is a great add-on, I added one and it works very well, highly recommended!
5-Battery life seems great so far, this new one has battery gage on-screen.
I'm good with popping out the micro SD card and viewing the videos on a PC and don't see this as a problem for me. Being able to play back video on the device would be a nice to have feature but is not a dealbreaker in my opinion at all.
Being able to set the time between shots is great. Delays down to 1 second really allows me to capture all the action. I had seen one review that didn't like the amount of time you have to look at the preview before starting to record, but I did not find that to be a problem at all. I got a 32GB card with it and only used about half of it to capture about 12 hours of footage at the 1 second interval. I also love the convenience of having the results in a single .avi file.
I'm looking forward to shooting some gathering snow footage this winter.
Its nice that it turns the pictures directly into a video clip!
I have had it running for a few days at a time at 1 shot per 5 minutes which worked out great!
is small and does have limitations such as you can't tell it what to focus on and the picture quality is that of a cell phone video shot but you should expect that with the price of this device.
for the price , if your just doing one or two projects just for yourself then its defiantly the way to go.
Thus far we've set pix to ASAP (when 32 gb sd card will last about 4 hours) and 2 seconds (same card will last about 24 hrs) - haven't tried the longer settings as of this posting.
Like I said, we're very happy with this camera.
