Brinno has launched a new time lapse camera, called, TLC200 Pro, which has become the world’s first HDR time lapse video recorder.
Brinno has made the internet rounds after launching the TLC200. A small and cheap camera, capable of automatically capturing time lapse videos. The device does not require any custom editing, as it can automatically generate time lapse video using the captured photos.
Brinno TLC200 Pro becomes the world’s first HDR time lapse camera
The company has decided to take things further with the introduction of a Pro version, that features a 1/3-inch image sensor. The size of the sensor confirms that the Brinno TLC200 Pro pixels are twice bigger than the ones found in the HTC One smartphone, meaning that it can capture a whole lot more light.
Brinno says that the camera is very good at taking videos in low-light conditions, therefore it is the perfect “weapon” for a photographer who wants to record HDR videos at night.
Brinno TLC200 Pro specs include 1.3MP sensor and 720p HD video
Anyway, the Brinno TLC200 Pro features a 1.44-inch LCD screen, 1.3-megapixel image sensor, an integrated aspherical glass lens with f/2 aperture and 112-degree field-of-view which provides a 35mm equivalent of 14mm, 720p HD video recording, JPEG support, and SD card slot of up to 32GB.
The manufacturer claims that the camera can capture three to five images in only one second, but it can also be set at different intervals, ranging between one second and 24 hours.
The power is provided by four AA batteries, which can take up to 240,000 frames at a 2-second interval.
The camera can capture beautiful HDR videos at night
Various scene modes are available for photographers, including daylight, twilight, night, and moon. Additionally, users can set the white balance, as well as the exposure, saturation, contrast, and sharpness.
Brinno has not announced TLC200 Pro’s price, but the regular version is available for about $300. This means that the HDR time lapse video-capable camera will most likely cost a lot more than that.
Limited functionality? Not so fast! Optional lenses are available, too
If you are not convinced by the camera’s capabilities, then you will be able to expand its functionality with a series of optional lenses. The manufacturer offers 18-55mm f/1.2 and 24-70mm f/1.4 lenses, and the camera is compatible with the CS-mount, too.
The performances of the Brinno TLC200 Pro HDR time lapse camera can be seen in several videos uploaded on the web by the company and we have got to say that they look pretty amazing.
