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
Excerpt: I purchased this to create time lapse videos during production and build process in the event industry. I am extremely pleased with the results. It has provided a unique tool to document the process and review with clients the behind the scenes action. Many clients have no idea exactly what it takes to produce and build large scale events.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Lightweight
Summary: Cons: Super low resolution, inconsistent exposure, pulsing effect in final time lapse Pros: Long battery life, easy to set up and use, .avi file is easy to view and include in video editors Very low resolution and inconsistent exposure causes a poor quality pulsing time lapse. This is a High Dynamic Range (HDR) camera, not High Definition (HD)--something that was confusing to some reviewers.

Summary: a great camera that is easy to use straight out of the box ( comes with batteries and a SD card). first thing i did was record myself asleep. that's the thing with time lapse, it lets you see things you can only see with time lapse and with it's modest price tag i don't think i will be able to stop at one. i want to do the back yard for a year at 1 frame per 12 hours, say 6am and 6pm, and it would be easy as you can use an external power supply.
Summary: This is my second review. Bought 2 of these almost 1 year ago to record the construction of a new house. This is a long project and I was curious to capture the progress over time. I have to admit that I am very happy I purchased these 2 cameras and that I have been able to record so much of the outdoor activity on the construction site. The ball mounts (which were secured to tall trees on the property) do not appear to be strong.
Best first commercial version of Time Lapse Video Cameras in market, so it is not 100% optimal to be the first one.

Summary: It is a good first commercial initiative of Time Lapse camera with good picture quallity, but unfurtunatelly it is not intituitive manufactured for end users. - View screen is small with very bad pixel resolution to guide the user in focus the camera. - SelfView mirror accessory need to be attached with a metal ring that must be sticked in the lens, so if you move the lens to focus the camera that ring moves and it will not fit well the magnet of this SelfPortrait...
Summary: This camera is great. Its probably better then any other time lapse camera out there in this price. But focusing the lens is extremely hard, especially when you have to use it for close up objects. It has a very wide angle, but once again this is not good for any close-up object (It bends the object like as if you are looking through a magnifying glass). People told me that I had to buy a separate narrower lens to avoid this problem, but guess what?
Excerpt: I have only had this camera for a little over a week, but wow it is cool. I have used in the car for driving time lapse, event time lapse, cloud/weather, and star photography. So far this is very easy to use and the fact that the file is already in an .avi file makes it worth the money. I would prefer a few more buttons, maybe like a 4dir thumb pad or scroll wheel. But then again I shoot with a D300, that has lots of function buttons.
Pros: Durable, Highly Compatible, Lightweight, Produces High Quality Film
Excerpt: I have 6 of these in operation right now. Was surprised at the high construction quality. Also many features hidden in the simple menu system. A bit awkward to focus, and was surprised you even had to do so. But great camera so far.
