As a cameraman I’m prone to buying the odd gadget! When I saw what the Syrp Genie could do I had to order one. This is a fantastic motion control timelapse device from New Zealand. Combined with either a Slider or tripod you can create amazing timelapses which either pan or track. It can also be used to shoot video as well. Check out www.syrp.co.nz to see what this device is capable of.
I can use the Syrp Genie with a Revolve Dolly and carbon fibre tubes of 1m or 1.5m or 1.8 m of Revolve Travel Tracks to get really unusual angles and moves for your timelapses.
I now also have the Syrp Magic Carpet slider set designed to compliment the Syrp Genie. The Magic Carpet kit comes with 800mm and 1600mm tracks and is lightweight and silky smooth. Great as a manual slider or motorised when used with the Syrp Genie. check it out here http://syrp.co.nz/news/2014/06/magic-carpet-slider-now-available/
