Syrp Announces the Genie One Entry-Level Motion Control Device


Syrp has announced that it is adding the new Genie One to the company's lineup of motion control devices, this one being an entry-level version for capturing timelapse, panorama, turntable, live drive, and other shots. In a simple design, the Genie One allows you to achieve motorized pan or linear tracking motion (one or the other at a time) with DSLRs and compact mirrorless cameras. Linear tracking motion is achieved via an included rope and rope mount that secure to your camera slider. The rope installs into the Genie One, wrapping around a motorized rotating wheel on the bottom, and the Genie One travels along its length at user-assignable speeds and distances.

One of the top features of the Genie One is that it can be operated via an iOS/Android app, enabling you to do everything remotely. The app lets you set up keyframes via an intuitive keyframe editor, and it also allows you to choose presets such as "People" and "Stars," in timelapse and other modes.

While the Genie One is an entry-level model, it can be combined with other Syrp motion control products for multi-axis motorized movements. A built-in battery provides an extended run time so that you can shoot long time-lapse sessions and otherwise just be able to use it extensively over a long shooting schedule. Also, in addition to being compact and portable, it's also robust and reliable, thanks to an aluminum housing.
