With 3 billion searches per month on and 100 hours of video uploaded every minute, YouTube has become the second largest search engine by some accounts. The rise in video is taking over marketing and social media, and camera manufacturer Brinno is helping builders and remodelers take advantage of that. Brinno recently introduced the BCC 100 Time Lapse Video Construction Camera designed to show daily progress on your jobsite. Jobsite time-lapse cameras aren't new, but we mostly see them used on large commercial projects at a hefty price tag. But at a starting price of just over $200, the BCC 100 lets builders and remodelers get in on the time-lapse action at a more affordable price point, no matter how big or small the job.
The worker-friendly camera features a dust-proof and water-resistant housing that protects that lens, which can capture video at a 140-degree angle. Users can set the video recording rate, mount the camera indoors or out, and walk away. The maker says the battery will last up to two-and-a-half months while taking pictures at 30 minute intervals. For more easy-to-use features, Brinno construction cameras offer "instant video," which means you can play back the time-lapse on the spot once filming is completed. The BCC 100 can turn 8 hours of time-lapsed pictures into an easy 8-minute video with no large file transfers, video editing, or processing needed.
The BCC 100 is available as a standalone camera for $214 on Amazon, or for about $270 if you want to add an SD Card to your order.
