Brinno BCC200 overview

  • 1Description

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 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.

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.

  • TLC200 Pro HDR Time-Lapse Video Camera

    Whether you're recording events, projects, or the natural world, the AA battery-powered TLC200 Pro HDR Time-Lapse Video Camera from Brinno will allow you to see and show change over a given period. It performs time-lapse photography every 0.3 sec or at selectable intervals from 1 sec - 24 hr, and instantly creates HD 1280 x 720 videos from the captured still images; no stitching or other post-processing is required. There's also a burst mode for shooting 3-5 photos in 1 sec. Videos are compressed into smaller files for easy playback on smart devices.

    The TLC200 Pro features a 1.3MP, 1/3", High Dynamic Range (HDR) image sensor, which helps produce great shots with high contrast—even in challenging lighting conditions, such as those encountered at night. The camera accepts interchangeable CS-mount lenses, including the supplied 19mm (35mm equivalent) wide-angle lens, which offers 120° rotation and a fast f/2.0 aperture for effective low-light shooting. Additionally, the TLC200 Pro is equipped with a 1.44" TFT LCD monitor. Captured files are saved on the included 4GB SDHC memory card or an optional card up to 32GB in capacity.

    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.
    Firmware for Time-Lapse Recording
    Enables you to select a beginning and ending time for your time-lapse videos, e.g., start at 8 am and finish at 5 pm.
    Additional Shooting Mode Options
    Stop motion is available using the optional Shutter Line ATS110. Motion-activated shooting is possible via the optional Motion Sensor ATM100.
    TIMER Function
    Allows you to program specific times when the camera will wake up and begin recording and when it will shut off. This means you will have complete control without having to be there to turn the camera on—just set it and forget it.
    Interchangeable Lenses
    Accepts interchangeable CS-mount lenses, including the supplied 19mm (35mm equivalent), wide-angle, aspherical glass lens, which offers a fast f/2.0 aperture for effective low-light shooting and shallow depth-of-field effects. This lens, which comes pre-mounted on the camera, features a 112° field of view and can also rotate 120°, enabling panoramic image capture. Optional lenses include an 18-55mm f/1.2 with a 45mm diameter and a 24-70mm f/1.4 with a 32mm diameter. The lenses can be mounted and removed via the included screwdriver and screw. An optional IR filter can also be added.
    LCD Monitor
    Equipped with a 1.44" TFT LCD screen, which allows for accurate targeting of subjects and precise framing of scenes. You can also turn the time stamp and LED indicator options on and off. When on, the LED indicator will flash while capturing each frame. The LCD allows you to set a date and time and choose one of the following settings for the frequency band filter: none, 50 Hz for Europe, and 60 Hz for USA. Additionally, it shows you the remaining battery life and firmware version, and tells you whether the SD card is full, missing, or in need of replacement. The monitor turns off after 50 sec of inactivity, in order to save power.
    Scene Settings for Night Shooting
    For a standard twilight scene, program the camera for an exposure time of up to 1 sec. For a night scene, try 2 sec. When photographing the moon, 2 sec is optimal—unless you're shooting in ASAP mode, in which case 4 sec is best. When shooting stars, choose 4 sec, or 8 sec in ASAP mode.
    Low-Light Sensitivity
    Large pixel size of 4.2um and notable low-light sensitivity of 3650mV/lux-sec enable recording of sharp images in dim lighting situations. The updated firmware allows for fast adjustment to greater variations in light.
    Playback on Mobile Devices
    Using the optional Brinno ABR100 or another compatible card reader, play your videos on your smartphone or tablet. Videos are compressed into smaller files to make them easy to play and share.
    Image Quality
    Good: High compression rate produces the least image data of the 3 settings, so it does not yield the highest quality but works best for long capture periods
    Better: Moderate compression rate results in more image data and works well for general use
    Best: Low compression rate produces the maximum amount of image data to achieve the highest quality
    Camera captures files to SD or SDHC memory cards up to 32GB in capacity, and includes a 4GB SDHC card.
    Accessory Mounting and Connection
    Has a tripod mount on the bottom, as well as an extension connector for the attachment of the optional Brinno Time-Lapse accessories, which include the Shutter Line and Motion Sensor.
    Optional Waterproof Housing
    The water/weatherproof ATH120 housing provides protection for your camera against the elements. It is a clear case with a built-in lens port that is optically neutral, meaning it will not distort the field of view in any way.
  • Weather-Resistant Housing for TLC200 Pro HDR Time Lapse Video Camera

    This Weather-Resistant Housing from Brinno is compatible with the TLC200 Pro HDR Time Lapse Video Camera. Its water-resistant design protects your investment against the elements while affording easy access to controls. The case is clear to allow for monitoring of the watertight seal and the camera. It features a built-in, flat lens port that does not distort the image or reduce the clarity of the lens. The housing is configured with a standard 1/4"-20 threaded hole on the bottom for connection to an optional tripod or other support system, such as Brinno's #AWM100 Wall Mount.

Brinno BCC200 reviews

BCC200 Construction Bundle Pro 1280 x 720 Time-Lapse Camera is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from great job for a cheap timelapse cam This product is as described: a cheap simple camera that does the job. Don't expect a Hollywood 4K result. For the price, really worth it. Simple to set up, simple to install, well made and give the expected result, not more. Con: limited to 720p, video quality is OK, but nothing to be a Spielberg. Pro: cost effective result, efficient and simple system. Reliable. Last more than 2 months with a single 4 AA batteries set. Limited to 32Gb sd card. The plastic casing quickly become yellow, but does not affect image quality. Great for security, HDR mode is very effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brinno BCC200 a Must Have Camera I just used this for the first phase of my construction project, the building demolition, and this camera worked seamlessly. It is so easy to operate anyone can do it. The instruction are very easy to follow. The BCC200, which uses the TLC200-Pro, camera has some fantastic features. I went thru the set-up menu step by step, adjusted the focus, push the record button and mounted it in a birdhouse attached to a tree. I came back 4 days later took the camera down, held the OK button in for a couple of seconds and the camera processed the pictures into an AVI video. Then loaded the SD card into a card reader, downloaded to my computer and watched the video. I did then load the file into Adobe Premiere and trim the video down. I had set the FPS to 30 and the time lapse shots for every 30 seconds. Next time I shoot a demolition project I will set the time lapse shots for less than every 30 seconds. Maybe about 15 seconds. It is better to take frames out of the video than try to stretch them out. The bottom line is that I highly recommend the BCC200!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, high quality for the price. Can't imagine how anyone could have trouble setting it up. In first four months of owning it, it was in constant use on four different construction projects and worked flawlessly. Plan to buy a second kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good moderate quality capture So far, we've used the BCC200 for three events. The product works, and works as advertised. Navigating the controls is not intuitive; but the booklet spells out how to set the camera, and gives good suggestions for which settings to use -- something missing in other instruction sets. The clamp pod supplied is a very clever device. However, due to the construction, we haven't found a way to clamp it to a vertical board, and have the cameral level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again it works very good easy to use and good for surveillance

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea but not user friendly The camera only makes 720P video. The camera menu is not user friendly to set up for specific setting. The monitor gets turn off as soon as the camera starts and no way to see the little green light clicking in out side day light. I rolled for 24 hrs to find out later than nothing was recorded. I returned the camera. Thanks to B&H good return policy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera for construction time-lapse photography So far we are very happy with this purchase.� It's not particularly simple to use, but manageable.� The bungie cords are pretty cheap, but the clamp that comes with the construction bundle is solid.� I wish there were a few more default options for photo rate.� The rate jumps from every ten minutes to every hour, while options for every 15, 30 or 45 minutes would be nice.� Support for the product is good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great in winter or summer I bought 4 systems for year-round time-lapse of project of Coal Power plant demolition. I recorded in all weather 80f to -32f degrees. I am happy with units. Wish there was wireless option. and that SD cards could be bigger than 32gb. otherwise. look and perform flawless. I checked on cameras every 2-3 weeks in summer and every 7 days in winter.
