Once a upon a time there was a popular recurring feature on our travel blog called “Where We’ve Been.” These posts included a quick rundown of the area’s we’d traveled through on our little road trip during the previous month along with a time-lapse travel video taken by a GoPro camera mounted to our dashboard. Unfortunately, the GoPro doesn’t actually take time-lapse video. It takes thousands of stills which Eric then had to painstakingly knit into a  time-lapse video.  It was extremely tedious and time consuming and that’s why we abandoned the “Where We’ve Been” posts about four years ago.

Recently, however, we learned about a new camera from a company called Brinno that’s designed specifically to take time-lapse video. Game changer. Once we figured out how to mount it on our dash,  our Brinno TLC200Pro was good to go. Now our Brinno takes time-lapse video as we drive and we can reinstate our “Where We’ve Been” posts without hassle.
