The Genie! A simple, affordable and extremely easy to use device used for motion control and image capture for Time Lapse Photography and more

The Genie Motion Control Time Lapse Device from Syrp is your key to the creative world of time lapse photography or real time video. The 4″ cube takes up very little space in your bag and at only 3.3 lb it’s easy to make it part of your standard rig.

The Genie, which allows both panning and linear motion control, attaches to standard gear such as dollies, sliders, jib arms and tripods. Simply attach the panning accessory to your tripod or support and mount your optional camera and ball head to the 3/8″-16 stud atop the Genie. The weight of your equipment is rarely a concern since it supports up to 44 lb. An illuminated bubble level is built in to help in setting up for panoramas. The Genie has factory presets such as Stars, People or Clouds but you can enter an unlimited amount of user presets into the Genie’s memory for custom work. At maximum panning speed a 360° pan takes 5 seconds, while 39″ of linear movement takes 23 seconds.

Linear time lapse can be done on a rail or on a linear support system of your own making. While the Genie comes with 9.85′ of rope to pull it across the rail, the movement of your time lapse is only limited by the length of your rope. The Genie has been tested successfully on a homemade 60′ dual cable stretched over a lake.
