A company called Afidus andbased out of Taiwan is demonstrating a relatively small cube-shaped camera called the ATL-200 at NAB 2019. Though it resembles an action camera, the ATL-200 is designed specifically to capture time-lapses; it can capture continuously for up to 30 days while on battery power.

The ATL-200 camera can be powered with four AA batteries or with a 5V micro USB cable charger. When operating off batteries, the camera operates for 45 days at a 1-minute capturing interval or 80 days at a 5-minute capturing interval, assuming it runs for 8 hours per day.

Operators have a number of capture options, including time-lapse intervals from 1 to 30 seconds, 1 to 10 minutes, and 1/4/24 hours, as well as a custom time option for using any interval duration. Continuous intervals can be set to 5, 10, and 15fps when recording at 1080p and 30fps at 720p.

ATL-200 supports multiple capture modes, including motion detection, stop motion, time-lapse, time-lapse and motion hybrid, and step video. The camera's integrated motion sensor can detect moving objects located up to 25ft / 7.6m away. In addition to the camera's autofocusing capabilities, operators can manually set the focus and zoom using the ATL-200's companion mobile app.

Other features include a Sony Exmor Full HD 1080p sensor, IPX 64 weather-resistant construction, and a standard 1/4-20 tripod mount joined by four strap tabs. The camera is shipped with a 16GB SanDisk Ultra microSD card, but users can swap it out with other cards that have capacities up to 128GB. Time-lapses are saved in MP4 format. Below is a video highlighting the stand-out features of the time-lapse camera.

Afidus lists the ATL-200 on its website, but it only appears to be available for sale through TimeLapseCameras.com at this time, as noted by Newsshooter. The camera is priced at $389 USD; the next camera batch is expected to start shipping in late April.
