Extended Battery Life
We are all creators in the field we specialize in, our daily jobs. The Afidus ATL-200 camera is your "go-to" camera choice for projects ranging in build/creation time from 10 minutes to long-term projects lasting months or years. If you have a lengthy build please reach out to us for help and guidance on the right settings.
The Afidus camera is new, however, it's proving itself more every day. We are still in testing the super long-term battery life and inclement weather. Here in Minnesota we have winters on par with Siberia, so you know it's cold. Very cold! Our outdoor cameras perform very will in temperatures down to -40 with lithium batteries. Checking the capture indicator light occasionally is good piece of mind when temperatures are below zero.
Our indoor cameras easily run for 30 days at a capture a minute during working hours. We also have a camera capturing every five minutes, 10 hours a day which has been running for 50 days. Our testing is ongoing and we are exited to share future updates with you.

Your workday is Monday-Friday, right? Wrong! Your project happens during your working hours. Sometimes this includes or excludes the weekends. Why not exclude the time from the clip when the project is not being worked on? Our next shipment of cameras and firmware/app update will include this unique feature of being able to select a working schedule tailored to your hours. Set the days, working hours and interval and Go.
This clip footage was scouted for two weeks prior to the actual event. Our team has had this event on their radar as a "bucket-list" of content to capture. We waited and watched for the go live to drop any day. To capture this event our team was required to be onsite the day it started. Scheduling will be a welcome feature in the arsenal of options to reduce editing time in the long run.

PIR = PASSIVE INFARED SENSOR
Inspired by a pesky critter found up the block, we set the camera up to test the PIR (Passive Infrared Sensor) feature to reduce total clip time. This feature sets the camera to record only when the camera sensor is triggered. With the right setting, you'll have one clip showcasing all the action.
Critters are tricky little buggers to observe. This fun feature to work with allows you to set the camera up and walk away letting it do all the work. We find this feature useful in situations where action needs to be recorded only when it's occurring. Be sure to set the camera to Hyper capture mode so it records one complete clip. Otherwise, you'll have a set of 500+ small clips to string together. Remember we're here to help.

What's new with us!
Finding just the right flower to capture was the easy part. Waiting for it to bloom...we were impatient. The end result is worth it.
Setting consistent light was no small feat to accomplish. In this setting natural light blended with studio light produced a little light flickering, this is a normal feature in creating Time Lapse Videos. We advise to take your time setting the right focus for the best outcome and to check your footage a few minutes into the capture. Remember we're here to help.
