World’s first HDR time-lapse camera

f7e7ed2e9dee77ef347dff0795183261You can do time-lapse recording on many devices these days, but if you could have just one device that can sit out in the middle of nowhere that can instantly produce time-lapse HD video in varying light conditions, then the new BRINNO TLC200 PRO TIME LAPSE CAMERA might be something to look at.

Brinno claims it’s the world’s first time-lapse HDR camera. It’s a pocket sized standalone unit 64x 52x 107 mm with a built-in 1.44″ TFT LCD monitor and viewfinder. It has a wide-angle (112° field of view) and comes with an f/2.0 19mm lens (equivalent to 35mm). The lens can also be rotated up to 120° and the focus can be set manually. The lens is removable and can be interchanged with any compatible CS Mount lenses. Read Full post at Canoe Tech Blog.
