When we first noticed photographer Michael Lohr it was through a series of videos he had created as a user of Brinno Cameras.
It was immediately clear that there was something special about the content he was creating.
Smart, imaginative and the man really had a way with clouds (his nick name is now the cloud whisperer.)
Fast forward to a couple of years later and we have some of the most interesting content ever created with our cameras. He has combined time-lapse, stop motion video, created awesome content with the ART200 Panlapse Base, made construction videos, travel clips with the TLC120 and even built a barn.
There is nothing this man can’t do (and hasn’t tried) with our cameras. He even was invited by The Weather Network to storm chase with their team for a two week stretch!
It seems fitting that our Content Creator Spotlight this month showcases the talents of Michael Lohr.

1) ¿Cuál es el atractivo de un timelapse para usted y sus clientes?
Un timelapse es una forma rápida e interesante de ver el cambio en algo, ya sea en construcción o con movimiento. La gente moderna le gusta ver las cosas de una manera ágil. Ellos no tienen la paciencia para ver videos largos. En un timelapse usted puede ver un edificio siendo construido, el crecimiento de una planta o flor, el movimiento de las nubes, cualquier proceso que toma horas lo pude ver en minutos. Un timelapse es también útil como elemento de edición o transición de un video.
People always ask “What are your favorite time-lapse videos made with Brinno Cameras?” As the Social Media Manager for three years I think i’ve seen them all (probably multiple times!) and I do have some favorites. So this is a compilation of some of the most popular time-lapse cameras made with various/multiple Brinno Cameras.
The BCC100 Construction Cameraoperates on long-lasting batteries. 4 AA batteries can last up to 4 months. You never need to worry about finding a power outlet! Put away that DSLR and pick up the most important thing you can use to show your clients progression, value and the quality of your work. Here are three of the best that represent those year long commercial projects.
Josh Banks made an excellent time-lapsevideo in his hometown of Rochester, Minnesota for Rochester Public Utilities. This was his first video and was a five month project. His second effort was a McDonald’s Restaurant build from beginning to end.
The TLC200 Pro HDR Time Lapse Video Camera performs time-lapse photography and instantly creates HD videos at 1280 x 720 resolution from the captured still images. No stitching or other post-processing is required. Choose a time interval of 0.3 sec or select one of many intervals from 1 sec – 24 hr to see change over time, whether you’re recording events, projects or the natural world. There’s also a setting for shooting 3-5 photos in 1 sec. Videos are compressed into smaller files for easy playback on smart devices.
There are so many great time-lapse moments that have been captured with these cameras!
This video is of the largest continuous mat foundation pour in the history of Philadelphia and was captured on July 10, 2016 by a team led by Tutor Perini. The timelapsing of the project was of the W/Element Hotel currently scheduled to open in 2017.
Michael Lohr has become a phenomenal user of the PRO. This video of horses in his home state of Colorado is fun and a perfect time-lapse moment!
We have two videos from Abu Wei who somehow manages to capture the beauty of Taiwan and the opening of a Cactus Flower with ease. Who knew that time-lapse video would be an easy, inexpensive way to be creative with video?
There are so many others including THIS our most popular video (to date.) I will be adding more posts like this to showcase all of the wonderful creativity that I see with our cameras.
TimeLAX is two brothers obsessed with time-lapse video, pushing boundaries and layering the ir footage to create stunning videos. We are so lucky that they found the ART200 and decided to use it in their latest video on California’s Silicon Beaches.
There you have it! A few of our favorites, lots we didn’t have room to add and hoping that our amazing contributors continue to create smart, fun and interesting time-lapse videos.

Why would using a Brinno BCC200 construction camera for jobsite projects be important?
Brinno has been a recognized leader in Time-Lapse Cameras. With the industrial-grade professional construction camera, the BCC200 is a weatherproof camera bundle that offers quick and easy installation, without cumbersome wiring or power requirements. It illustrates the entire project, no matter how many days, months, or years it takes.

It’s that time of the year again and you might be wondering what to buy that special man in your life.
If he is handy around the house OR if he has a major construction project in the works the Brinno BCC200 Construction Bundle may be exactly the gift you have been looking for.
Brinno Cameras are very popular for several reasons.
There is no camera currently on the market that allows you to film a long-term project on one set of batteries. Say (for instance) you are building a shed, over the period of a week, you can set the camera timer and one set of batteries will last a week.
Now, say you have a four month long project, that same set of batteries will last you the entire duration.
We use the phrase “Set it and forget it.” This is a dedicated time-lapse camera with a simple menu.
You decide how many Frames Per Second (FPS,) capture at the time you choose by using the timer, even remove the time stamp if that’s what you choose.
In the box is your HDR time-lapse camera, the weather resistant housing, industrial grade aeronautical aluminum steel clamp, 2 bungee cords, AA batteries even an 8GB SD Card.
So we are a little bit behind in updating this blog.
There is a good reason! 2016 is turning out to be an incredible year for Brinnoand it’s only March!!
The ART200 Panlapse Base Rotating Camera Base has been a worldwide success and we are so glad you have embraced our ‘Brilliant Innovation.’ The Brinno Pan Lapse is a Bluetooth (BLE 4.0) rotating camera stand, that allows you to take smooth sweeping video or amazing panning timelapse videos with your Brinno camera, mirrorless camera or smartphone or GoPro. Just Pan-and-Shoot, It’s that easy! Photographers will appreciate the smooth panning as seen in this video.
PHV WiFi is almost here!!
A prototype was on-site for a fully functional demo at both CES2016and IBS2016!
The PHV Wi-Fi allows users to see who is at the door on their phone or mobile device via an app. Someone comes to the door and a push notification with the visitor’s image appears in the app whether the user is at home, the store or on vacation. Images are also stored within the viewer and a live picture is displayed for close proximity viewing.
The PHV Wi-Fi is revolutionary within the security industry as it uses the existing peephole with no external sensors. While we do have existing Peephole Viewers, the addition of a WiFi enabled camera offers one more solution in Home Security.
Now in case you are wondering what a PeepHole viewer is… The PeepHole Viewer uses an LCD Panel to display who is at your door. It turns a hard to see PeepHole image into a big bright image. It doesn’t replace the optic peephole, but it upgrades the traditional to a digital PeepHole Viewer!
Timelapse video has increasingly taken over traditional video in popularity. Want to know why Brinno cameras are so popular? The MAIN reason is our extraordinary battery life. There is simply no timelapse camera on the market today that even comes close to the battery life we offer. Our Construction Timelapse Camera the BCC100 has award winning technology and now we are proud to introduce theBCC200 the High Dynamic Range (HDR) image sensor produces stunning timelapse video under virtually any lighting conditions, from low light to intense backlighting. This is our PRO version for long-term projects and higher-end construction camera bundle with 80-day battery life, is powered by a HDR-sensor and special night-modes perfect use for documenting construction projects, analyzing environmental changes, and an amazing variety of other long-term outdoor photographic tasks.

There are so many new things going on at Brinno and now you, the fans, will have a place to find out about new products, solutions and all of our exciting “Brilliant Innovations.”
The first announcement today is for our US based users. Josh Banks is the Nation’s first Brinno Authorized Solutions Provider. Josh via his website BanksPhotos can assist you with any aspect of your Brinno time lapse experience. From initial purchase recommendations and mounting suggestions to editing your time lapse into a polished video. To quote him, “Back in 2013 I was looking for a time lapse solution to record the video above. I checked out service providers, different camera systems, even explored developing my own system. Everything changed when I came across Brinno, I ordered a camera and weatherproof housing from Amazon and achieved the above result. Come to find out, this video was one of the first very long duration time lapse videos edited into a good presentation and posted for public viewing. Brinno contacted me for more information regarding my implementation of their camera and that is where my relationship with Brinno began. Now, I use five Brinno cameras the TLC 200 PRO and f 1.2, most are positioned on long term job sites with one reserved for shorter duration shooting.
Brinno’ TLC200 camera family were designed with the capture of construction projects in mind. Long battery life is one of the primary features of all three of the cameras, and when the cameras have to last months in the field, this becomes critical. Being battery based, allows the customer to locate the cameras where needed at any time, which is critical to getting creative and detailed videos. The TLC200 f1.2 is part of the BCC100 kit, while many customers opt for the TLC200 PRO with its HDR ( High Dynamic Range ) enabled, exceptional low light performance. Whichever Brinno camera you choose, rest assured you can produce high quality videos.
This blog will feature new posts every Tuesday, with special announcements periodically. We hope that you will forward us your questions, concerns and videos. The videos we hope to feature and of course, will be credited back to each of you.
