Brinno TimeLapse Camera
Brinno Time Lapse Camera
According to Wikipedia, Time-lapse photography is a cinematography technique whereby the frequency at which
film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that which will be used to play the sequence back. It’s like that you
can take sequential photos captured over a period of hours and compress them
into a video of only a few minutes in length – this allows you to see a slowly
changing scene at a much faster pace and can open up a whole new world of
photography to you.
The following videos show
different Time-Lapse Photography examples from different places for various
natural phenomena. I hope you will enjoy these videos and share with us
your thoughts about this technique.
Time-lapse video can be stunning
beautiful, or simply amusing, but without specialized equipment, they are
somewhat difficult to create. But a new digital time-lapse camera
available from Brinno makes it easy and worry-free.
Brinno’s bright blue pod-shaped camera
is weather-resistant, so you can leave it outside to capture the snow falling
or the garden growing. The operation of the camera is as simple as the
design. It has a standard tripod connector on the bottom but also stands
upright by itself so that it can be easily placed in a window sill or on a
The camera’s lens can focus at standard
or macro distance. It takes pictures at interval settings ranging from 1
second to 24 hours, with film lengths depending on how many pictures you take
(the required 4 AA batteries will last for 38 hours at the fastest setting, up
to 200 days at the slowest). There are six default settings, and you can
create a custom setting for any period from 5 seconds to 12 hours.
The most intriguing feature about this
camera is that it does all the work of putting your JPEG images together for
you. No more long and tedious stitching in video programs – your series
of images is automatically saved as an AVI file, ready to watch or upload to
YouTube. Brinno’s Time Lapse Cam (TLC-100) will
probably be your best bet.
