Summary: This time lapse camera is so simple to use! all u have to do is leave it where ever you desire (safely posted) and it will do its job for the next couple of hours, and it will then compile all those images into a video in AVI format and you can watch it on your laptop! i took my first time lapse video today and im SO happy with the results! i am excited to explore the world of Time Lapse Photography! :) thanks for a great product!
Confusing menu and the instructions do not match the acutal on-camera menu.

Summary: There does not seem to be any way to set the date/time on the camera. the instructions that came with it do not match the menus on the camera. I have not been able to use the camera because I cannot even get the date/time set correctly. I have not been able to get support from Brinno by email, phone or their Facebook page. I am about to return it and all the accessories I bought.
Summary: After a very long research we discovered the Brinnos for longterm timelapses. We abandoned 5 of the in a very remote location, without energy, internet or any other civilization things, like roof. They behaved as expected, capturing acceptable photos for more than 1 month. Excellent!
Summary: Only had it a few days so I can't speak to its durability or long term use, but boy what an unboxing. Beautifully packaged, nice manuals (no Engrish despite being a Taiwanese company) and everything in the box needed to instantly start using it. Still getting the hang of settings, but the first sunset I captured was awesome. Also tried it as a dashboard cam while driving which worked cool. And the HDR imagery was very nice. Night time was a touch noisy but amazing pics!
Summary: Great camera. Does everything its supposed to do very well. Great battery life. The settings menu is a little funky to use, but not a deal breaker. Video quality is unbelievably good for such a small unit.
Summary: Length:: 0:11 Mins I've been working with this camera for a week now. I'm not happy. Setting it up is a pain. It's push this button then that button, then ... I always wind up in circles. The camera doesn't seem to have any way of shooting night time (city lights) and then the dawn without completely over exposing scenes as it gets lighter. I don't know how they shot the images used to promote the camera.
Summary: What's to like: - Scene modes make getting good results simple. - Automatically creates a video file when timelapse is over, again making the process simple. The format is 1280x720 .AVI (and you get to specify the frame rate up to 30fps). - Lens swivels to point from directly up to, say, 45 degrees down (total about 135 degrees). - Almost completely no lens flare when shooting at the sun. - Built in timer (but only 1 range, and only in 15 min increments i.e.
Summary: I have had the TLC200 for over a year and recently decided to upgrade to the Pro. The Pro is a substantially improved product and well worth the extra cost. Among the improvements: First and most important, greatly improved picture quality, especially in high-contrast and low-light shots. Naturally the quality is not what I get from my full-frame DSLR but for general use it is far more convenient.
Summary: A time lapse video camera is probably something you don’t think about needing but once you have it you wonder how you managed without it. The TLC 200 Pro is a 1.3 MP camera that shoots video in 1280 X 720 (16:9 ratio) in AVI format. The unit runs and has remarkable life on just 4 AA batteries. The unit comes with a 4 GB SDHC card and can support up to 32 GB. It is also functional as a webcam with Wi-F connectivity making it a snap to upload videos to your computer.
Summary: As soon as I received this unit, I had a job need to be done - to catch what was eating chunks out of my strawberries during the night, as soon as they started to ripen. I set it up about 6" from my ripening strawberry, manually adjusted the focus after loosening the lense locking screw slightly and set the setting to twilight, with a white led light source set to give a low light behind the camera, I caught to culprit - a cockroach, on film!
