Photographing time-lapses where the camera moves a long distance is not easy. You can set up tracks, but this is a long and laborious project. Plus, you need to make sure the tracks are not in the shot. This is where cable cameras come into play. It may look like a hard thing to set up, but this video by Morten Rustad will take you through all the steps you need to take to create fascinating time-lapses.
When SYRP first kickstarted the Genie, we knew that it was something a bit different, but we had no idea how vast the echo system will be. The Slingshot is the third member to the Genie system (after the mini and bracket). The Slingshot builds on the same Genie motor to move between two points. Only instead of riding a slider, it is hang on a rope bridge.
The slingshot comes with two mounting brackets which you can hang on trees or walls or bridges, and a big four-wheels cart that holds the Genie, a camera and an optional Genie mini. Once the brackets are mounted, the cart is placed on the two wires and is ready to go.
