Brinno News! April 29th, 2014

Introducing our latest release, the Brinno PHVMAC12 the third generation Brinno Peephole Viewer/Camera, which has raised the bar again on basic front door security.

The greatest improvements are:

1) Through the peephole motion detection
2) Time and date stamped Video option
3) 9,000 triggers of battery life.

By detecting motion through the peephole, and recording whomever approaches the door, there is nothing on the outside of the door to indicate that the Peephole is now a motion activated camera, so no one is going to damage it or cover it up, like they might if they noticed a motion detection unit outside the door.

Automatically storing time and date stamped photos or videos give you a video log of any and all visitors, whether or not you are home, which can be played back on the display with the push of a button.  9,000 triggers is a lot of visitors, and more than three times the battery life of earlier versions.  If you were to receive 10 visitors a day, the batteries would last over 6 months.

As usual, the camera is simple to install and operate, and like all Brinno Products,  available at B & H Photo Video.

A note from Chris Adams, US Distributor of Brinno Products.

“Five years ago Brinno released the first Digital Peephole Viewer the PHV1325.   Prior to its release, the only option for people was a standard security camera above the door, which needed to be part of a $1,000 system, or some $500.00 door video call box with a display which both needed external power.  Now, for the first time there was a battery operated solution below $150.00 that was easy to install and operate.

This must have touched a nerve because copy products by the hundreds showed up, most of them out of Shenzhen, China.  I was living there at the time, so I saw many of them up close.  Of course, the defining difference between all these products and Brinno, was that Brinno actually used the peephole lenses and used software to flatten the fish eye effect you get with peepholes.

All of the pretenders placed cameras on the outside of the peephole and ran cables back to the display inside the door.  Hard to install and flaky at best.  Within a few months, 90% of these products were off the market, and the Shenzhen companies were copying something new and Brinno was busy designing the next version, and expanding its distribution worldwide.

The release of the third generation of the product, the Brinno PHVMAC reminded me that reinvesting in the technology and developing better products is critical to success as is expanding distribution.   However, in retrospect, perhaps the most important decision we made was to not panic, and try to drop our price to match these “pretender products”, but keep to our plan and sell on better quality and better functionality, and better service.

Five years later the competitive landscape is littered with the “pretenders” and Brinno now sells three versions worldwide. ”

The ALL NEW Brinno Blog

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.

TLC200Pro-B_05

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.

How Creative Can You Get With Brinno's TLC200 PRO?

“Creating a time-lapse video usually involves a DSLR and pricey image-processing software. The Brinno TLC200 PRO camera is so simple that anyone can plop it down and end up with a high-quality time-lapse. The image sensor has larger-than-normal 4.2-micron pixels, so images are bright—even at night. The camera takes up to five images per second for a day, and onboard software stitches them into a 720p video. ” The quote taken from Popular Science Magazine was referencing the very popular TLC200 PRO, Brinno’s flagship camera.

The TLC200 PRO Time-Lapse Camera

Whether you are filming the clouds of Perth, Australia, like our good friend Carl Nelson or shooting the stars in the galaxy like our creative director Abu Wei, the PRO will offer a creative outlet for you.

Flower lovers will love the simplicity of this simple but really beautiful video of flowers opening up or a butterfly escaping it’s cocoon for the very first time. With the TLC200 PRO you never have to miss a moment. Who doesn’t like a sunrise or sunset? With the PRO you can ‘Set it and forget it’. With the long lasting battery life and weather proof housing you will no longer be obligated to get up early to film, the PRO will do the work for you. No more stitching, no 50,000 frames for a short video, time-lapse videos have never been so easy.

If the thought of time-lapse video excites you but has always felt overwhelming, the TLC200 PRO is the answer. Be creative on your own terms. We will be featuring different types of videos, some will inspire and some will make you ask questions. We welcome the questions, in our quest to have the best time-lapse camera on the market today.              The motto at Brinno? Never miss a shot…

We leave you with this short video of #DTLA with a cinematic filter added…

STUNNING HDR TIME LAPSE VIDEO WITH A CAMERA

TLC200Pro-on-hand-05-S

There’s a scenic beauty that unfolds through the use of time lapse photography and time lapse video. The terms are pretty interchangeable and there’s not much difference from the viewers’ perspective between time lapse video and time lapse photography. In either one, the time of ongoing events is condensed into a manageable viewing window.

Travel And Technology: What I Can’t Live Without

TLC200Pro-on hand-06

 

Wondering what to take on the road when it comes to electronics?  You’re not the only one.  Long gone are the days where a basic camera and some binoculars were the height of travel gadgetry.  Walking into a hotel now requires a quick scan for the nearest plug (or plugs), the first thing I do is make sure everything is charged and ready to go. So what does a long term traveler have in her carry-on? I am giving you a glimpse into the things I am obsessed with having. That is not to say that I don’t have more but a girl only has two hands.

My New Toy

I am a gadget junkie. A techie nerd is what my friends call me. I have become obsessed with time lapse videos and while  surfing the net trying to figure out how to make one, stumbled across my latest toy. A camera that makes time lapse videos, requiring no stitching and very little set up. I like anything that makes my life easier. Enter the object that captured my imagination. The Brinno TLC200 PRO is the world’s 1st HDR Time Lapse Video Camera. When I initially read about this stunning piece of machinery, it was not yet available in the US. Time lapse videos are everywhere, my ability to capture destinations and offer them to various outlets as well as my own followers has greatly increased my own creativity. The possibilities are endless, the quality is spot on and now I can easily show other ‘techie nerds’ how easy it is to create an amazing video.

HP Envy

Laptop

I just purchased the HP Envy TouchSmart -8GB- 1TB Hard Drive. While that may seem like too much hard drive, it actually is perfect, in terms of storage for all of my photo and video editing programs. The Beats Audio is great and I have learned that Windows 8 is actually likable. This is my 4th HP laptop and my favorite of all. The 17.3″ screen is easy to view and graphics are crisp. I edit photos all day so my purchase ofLightroom 5 made the choice of this computer an easy one.

iPod Touch

I am constantly asked why I carry an iPod and a phone. The answer is pretty simple: The new iPod Touch  has the Retina screen, apps that are unbelievable and an excellent upgraded camera. The 5th Generation model comes in different colors and 32GB can hold tons of photos and music. I like the idea of carrying something that doesn’t ring. I can shove it in a pocket and if I happen to stumble across Free WiFi, maybe my email will be checked. The newest version is a bit expensive, starting at $299.00 but the size and capabilities have made my life and doing small work tasks so much easier. There are two new versions of the iPod Touch. If the forward facing camera is important, then the 32GB model is the one you will need.

Camera

I have come across so many people who snap all of their photos with their smart phones. While I understand this and use mine on a daily basis for the same reason, I find myself  drawn to all of the DSLR’s that are out there. My favorite? The Nikon D5100 DSLR. If you are looking to take your photography from point and shoot to inexpensive DSLR this is a perfect model for you. The price point is good, the photos are crisp and low-light pics are outstanding.

My Phone

I confess: I am addicted to phones. This is actually common knowledge. There isn’t a phone I haven’t tried, tested, fallen in love with or read about. I read every piece of information on every phone that comes out. My favorite at the moment is the HTC One.  It’s sleek, sexy and takes great photos. The Android platform is user friendly and I appreciate the ease. Can a phone really be sexy? YUP. It can and this one is a techie’s dream.
