Summary: Our family purchased this camera to use to watch our garden grow. It has turned out to be a great and easy little camera use. We took elapsed close up pictures of a plant growing over a 24 hour period on the custom setting of every minute. Then using the standard setting of a picture a day, a panorama of the whole garden over a period of a month. Good quality picture for the price, easy to use, and lots of storage. Only con is that it is not compatible with macs.
Summary: In fact, this unit worked poorly and intermittently at first (sometimes working as it should, sometimes only taking 1 frame). Then, after a week it wouldn't work at all (yes, I changed the batteries). So I took a risk and bought its big brother, the TLC200. Although the 200's interface is more complicated, it works much better then the 100, even when the 100 worked.
Summary: This camera was fine for my application to time lapse some construction. Overall worked great once everything was set up. As others have said, it doesn't have a viewfinder so you have to set it in a location, let it record for a while, then review to see if you like the position. The quality of the video was excellent given the price of the camera.
Summary: It dose take timelaps pictures. It does not adjust well to changing light conditions, the clairity is not what I had thought with a "HD" unit and the instruction booklet as well as the on line material was pathetic. The output needs to be converted to be used with other software. The lack of a viewfinder is very limiting but I know that going in.
Summary: I own three of these. They work very well for time-lapse. It is NOT designed as a trail cam. You can use it for that but unlike a trail cam these have to trigger feature. To date I have collected time-lapse video of my property, plants, assorted creatures, house construction, and security since 2009. Great fun and excellent as a learning tool. Rechargeable batteries are NOT a good choice. Fresh alkaline or lithium work best. One important note.
Summary: This camera seemed like the ideal blend of trail cam and video camera. I had hoped to be able to leave it out for a week and come back and have an entire week's worth of video. Not so. I will have to make sure that I turn off the night feature and download the video every 4,096 frames, which is the maximum for each video file. Once it reaches that magic number, it is done. So - not great for remote areas.
