What is it?
The Brinno BCC200 Construction Bundle Pro HD is a 720p HD time-lapse camera kit for long-term project recording. It allows owners to keep an eye on construction projects for months at a time and gives them the ability to quickly review the footage. Just assign the desired time lapse interval and set it to record. When you come back weeks or months later, you can watch the recording right away, without having to perform any processing. This kit consists of the TLC200 Pro time-lapse camera, a weather-resistant housing, and a clamp mount. The clamp mount features a mini ball-head that allows you to angle the camera as you need.
The TLC200 Pro is designed to perform very well in low-light conditions. Its image sensor features large 4.2um pixels that are sensitive to low light, and is also built with 115 dB HDR (High Dynamic Range), so images will be of high-quality in challenging backlit environments, so you can keep the camera recording day and night (as long as there’s some light available at night). The TLC200 Pro camera features a CS lens mount supporting interchangeable lenses to meet varying needs. The included lens has a 19mm focal length and 112° wide angle of view.
Everything is recorded to SD cards, with up to a 32GB SDHC card supported. The included TLC200 Pro normally comes with a 4GB card, but as part of this bundle an 8GB card is included instead.
How does it work?
The TLC200 Pro camera runs on four included AA batteries. At a time-lapse interval of 2 seconds (with the scene setting set to «daylight»), the batteries will last for 240,000 images to be captured, which would be about 5 days. If you set the interval to 5 minutes, the batteries will last for 40 days. In this case, the result will be 12 images captured every hour, totaling to 288 per day, and 11,520 for the 40 days. At the common playback rate of 30 fps, you can watch the entire 40 day recording in 384 seconds, which is just over six minutes. But you can set time intervals to anywhere between 1 second and 24 hours. There’s also an ASAP mode that captures 3-5 images every second. You can also use the timer function, which allows you to program the camera to shut off and wake up at designated times. Alternative to battery power, the camera can also be powered via a micro-USB cable, sold separately.
HDR Image Sensor: The 1/3″, 1.3MP High Dynamic Range (HDR) image sensor helps produce great shots with high contrast—even in challenging lighting conditions, such as those encountered at night. It can capture a greater dynamic range between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than some standard CMOS sensors can, resulting in a more accurate representation of the range of intensity levels seen by the naked eye. High, medium, and low HDR settings can be selected. The sensor records still images and HD time-lapse videos at 1280 x 720 resolution.
Time-Lapse Videos: Instantly creates HD videos from photos captured in time-lapse mode. No stitching or other post-processing is required, and thousands of photos can be combined into one video. Choose a time interval of 0.3 sec or select one of many intervals from 1 sec — 24 hr to see change over a given period, whether you’re recording events, projects, or the natural world. There’s also a setting for shooting 3-5 photos in 1 sec.
