4.0 out of 5 stars TimelapseCam 8.0 3 April 2012
By Dave Henniker TOP 1000 REVIEWER
My initial impressions are very good. The default setting for stills is 1920 x 1080 pixels but as you browse through the Setup menu you'll see 640 x 480 as well as its full sensor size of 3264 x 2448. It's quite heavy at 565 grams with 4 x AA batteries installed, and bulky at 18 x 14 x 8 centimetres. The supplied support bracket is very robust and can be clamped to posts or screwed to a window sill. There are two standard tripod threads on the back and bottom of the camera.

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of images and the ease of use of this camera for under 100 pounds including carriage. Non-photographers will appreciate the clear English instructions. I have yet to try selecting movie mode, preferring still images to convert to a movie afterwards. Quicktime Pro or Photolapse will help with this, less expensive than Adobe Premiere. The supplied software won't convert 1000s of stills, only 300.

The lens is not a wide angle one and may be equivalent to what used to be considered a standard lens on a 35mm film camera of about 55mm focal
length. It can be easily focused - though the optical viewfinder won't show this. If you're photographing a flower blooming you can measure the distance using the supplied measuring tape then turn the focus dial to match.

Verified Purchase
My main complaint is that due to the surprisingly low quality of the images coming from a 4MP image sensor I have been disappointed time and time again with the resulting videos and still images. I own an old 3MP camera which has never had the issues I outline below.

I bought this Project Camera as I need to document the construction of an outdoor project, which may take several weeks at least, and there are no convenient windows where I could setup a simple indoor webcam. Most "trail cams" I looked at did not have a time lapse mode, most utilizing motion sensors, so out of a selection of some very expensive cameras this seemed to be the one for me. On a side note - the Project Camera and the Plant Camera, both made by Wingscapes, are exactly the same product. The only distinction is that one is green and one is dark grey. This was confirmed by Wingscapes.

I like this product, it does most everything I want in an outdoor, weather resistant, battery operated time lapse camera. If this is your first foray into time lapse videos, and you plan to shoot outdoors, then this may be the starter camera for you. It is easy to setup and forget about. I purchased a 16GB card to go with mine so that I can shoot for extended periods at the highest quality setting, 4MP. If you do plan to shoot close up images - such as blooming flowers - do take the time to run several focus tests to avoid disappointment, as I found the focal depth to be quite shallow. However, that is not my main complaint.

In all three Wingscapes Project Cameras that I ended up testing (one shipped from the US and two from the UK) there was a consistent problem with random horizontal lines, dark or light, appearing in images.
