    The controls don't always work. That means that once you set it and walk away you might or might not get what you expect. The "continuous" mode is not very effective as once the video file gets to about 500meg it makes that a file, regardless of time of day.The .avi files are not great. They don't play well on standard Windows 10 movie apps. They stop and freeze, but it seems the file is all there.If the instructions were more than a quick-start guide it would be nice. Maybe the details on the continuous mode, what .avi movie player is best & what care you should take setting up and recording to insure more consistent results would make the product more usable.

    Does a great job

    I wanted a simple camera that I could have clients use on a job site and be push-button simple. It worked great and provided great images. It was easy to set up and simple with no proprietary batteries just simple AAs. I'd recommend it for its practicality and value.

    Very good optics, very poor battery life, buggy firmware

    First of all, this is my second Brinno timelapse camera. I also have had the TLC200 Pro for several years, which is a very good camera with very good battery life and it is easy to use, but it's only 720 HD.The battery life of the TLC2000 is incredibly short compared to their other cameras and much less than they claim. My TLC200 Pro will last well over two weeks at an interval of 3 seconds. My TLC2000 will last only about 1-1/2 days with an interval of 5 seconds. So, if you are using your camera outdoors I suggest you get their ATH2000 housing. It has 16 AA batteries in it and my TLC2000 will go a week or more at 3 second intervals. I use rechargeable NiMH batteries.The other problem is the firmware. When I first got it, it was incredibly buggy. They have since released an update (v61) but there are still numerous problems. First---unlike the TLC200 Pro---when you change the batteries in the TLC2000, you lose all your settings. The camera goes back to factory defaults.Second, and worse still, the camera cannot make videos that are over about 2-3 hours in real-time duration at 5 sec frame intervals. So, for instance, if you set the timer to take timelapse from 7am to 7pm, instead of getting one video file per day (like with the TLC200 Pro), the camera creates 5 or 6 separate videos. And the last video for that day doesn't end at 7pm...it carries over to the next day. So you have to use video editing software to make your daily video...combining and trimming the videos. It's a real pain in the...If they could get the firmware bugs fixed and improve the battery life, this would be a real fine camera. But for now...3 stars.UPDATE: The latest firmware update (FW79) does NOT fix any of the issues I pointed out in my original review.
