Summary: On the whole, this is a swell camera. Once you figure out the menu system, there's a lot of flexibility in the settings. I would like a smaller angle of view for my outdoor recordings, but a different lens will not fit into the weatherproof case (as far as I can find, there's no weatherproof case to fit with a different lens). It's hard to find accessories like a wall power source without buying a bundle of unnecessary stuff.
Excerpt: The TLC200 PRO video camera is real easy to use. I was up and recording in no time. Bought the extra lens and it worked well. I was able to focus, adjust light etc. This would be an even better camera if it had 1080 resolution.
Excerpt: Functions as described. Easy to set-up and use. Awesome battery life, plenty of shooting options, versatile product. Would have given it five stars is it outputted at a higher definition. 720 is okay, but would love 1080!
Summary: Restoration Project I am a partner in a project to restore/build three vintage Porsche racing cars from the mid 1950's. For the past two years we have been finding and replicating parts. Over the next two years, we will be assembling the cars. I wanted to document the assembly with a time lapse camera mounted over one of the work bays. I was told that a GoPro camera was what I needed.
Summary: This is the second Brinno camera I have tried and both have about a 30% failure rate on recordings. The camera creates two to 4 video files for each day of recording and I typically loose at lease one segment per day (3 to 4 hours of video). It always seems to loose the most important part of the days recording and I am left now with a very incomplete record of the process of my home construction. I was hoping to build a record of this process and Brinno has let me down.
Summary: I have used this so far for taking time lapsed photos of the weather and find it great, especially because it processes itself. I'm still trying it out because there are a number of good features. I have tried it in the star and moon mode which wad very good however, the full moon was too bright and I'll have to think of a way to cut down on the brightness, don't know if they have a lens for that.
Excerpt: The TLC200 is a great step up over the previous models. The wide angle lens works great. There are a few more bells and whistles that I would like to see but I'm sure those will be on the TLC300.
Pros: Easy To Use, Great Timer For On Off, Highly Compatible, Lightweight, Nice Lens Addition, Produces High Quality Film
Cons: Need More Intreval Times, Needs Solar Panel Option
Great for anyone interested in doing time lapse photography

Summary: I used to do freelance photography on a part time basis so I know something about cameras. Given the relatively low price, I was concerned that the Brinno would be kind of cheesey, But I've always had an interest in time lapse photography so i decided to give it a try. I am as close to 100% pleased as I can be. The camera makes time lapse so easy that anyone can do it.
