Digital Zoom_1@3x.png

Digital zoom

Digital Zoom.jpg

When engaged this will expand the zoom upto 4x the optical zoom range of the camera. 

Resulting in 16-35 + 40-140 mil range.  See our site example. 

Back Light Control.png

BACK LIGHT COMPENSATION

Located on the first screen within the scene selection. This is best used in situations where the subject is lit from behind. This feature will even out the front and back exposure of the scene.

 

Since the ATL-200S features true tonal HDR scope-if you are using a previous 200 or 201 model the HDR was always set to high.  To give you the most responsive dynamic range.  For the 200S model the HDR low which is the start of perfection.  You can fine-tune this to your scene by adjusting to HDR low, medium and high.

Select back light compensation from the Scene menu. Adjust to your satisfaction. 

DIS@3x.png

SPLIT FILES BY DATE

Split Fie by Date.jpg

This feature is tops in our book and highly requested by 200/201 users. Splitting files by a date means exactly that. All .mp4 files created by the camera will have a file size limited up to 537MB in size. When this feature is engaged, your footage will be separated up to that file size and by date. Meaning for a daily, month long project you will have split files for monday, tuesday etc according to the days that you set.

Afidus Auto Exposure.png

Auto exposure Optimizer

Auto Exposure Optimization.jpg

Automatic Exposure Optimizer would be used in situations where you would have a higher flicker and quick light changes such as sunrises or sunsets.  In short, this feature overrides the 50/60 Hz selection and reduces exposure flicker especially in sunrise/sunset scenario. 

We recommend turning this ON for short sunset/sunrises time lapses

Rotate@3x.png

Rotate 0/90/180/270

We find this handy in a variety of situations. At times on job sites, we install our cameras upside down like bats. Rotating the view 180 from the menu will flip the video in the preview screen allowing you to view it normally, making it a little more convenient for you. 

 

For some users the 90 and 270 is an intriguing angle for capturing extremely tall structures.

H.265_3x.png

Compression

The file size will vary with settings. Efficiency compression is a newer Codec using H.265. equal to 30% smaller files than capturing in Compatible compression mode.

We leave this setting at Compatible.

If you are an experienced editor and you you know your computer system can handle H.265 then change this to Efficiency.

snoop around

The freedom to zoom in is one of the "Pro" features of this camera.

Two Afidus ATL-200 cameras were posted on top of the Rochester, MN Government center four stories above the entrance hole of the Akkerman tunnel project. Their purpose for the project was to provide the zooming range of the site. Each camera was started within moments of one another. We were lucky to capture these frames match of the moment when the MTBM head was lifted into position on Dec 31st, 2019.

CAMERA 1 

Afidus ATL-200 zoomed out, equal to 16 mm lens.

CAMERA 2

Afidus ATL-200 zoomed in, equal to 36 mm lens.
