The Syrp Genie is a simple, portable solution for motion control Time-lapse + Real-time video. Designed to be part of your regular camera kit, with no external wires, batteries or controllers there’s no need to ever go without the option of motion control again.

This is a brand new unit but has been on display in our showroom so there are a few minor marks on the unit where it has been assembled. Includes both a 3N and 1P link cable. 

The key to the Genie lies in its compact size, easy-to-use menu and extreme versatility. Rather than limiting yourself to a fixed length rail system or slider, simply attach the Genie to your existing professional gear or DIY equipment for smooth Motion Control Time-lapse + Real-time video control. For all you need to know about the Genie, watch the overview above.

The Genie gives you the flexibility of using two axis in one device. Either Use the Genie on a tripod for panning motion or on a slider for tracking shots.

Rather than creating an integrated motion control system that requires a specific camera slider we designed the Genie to work with all types of existing sliders. With just one click you can add amazing production value to your films. Once attached, program the Genie to perform motion control time-lapse or perfectly smooth real-time video moves.

Imagine time-lapsing 100 metres between buildings in downtown New York or between mountain tops in the Himalayas. The Genie opens up endless possibilities for unlimited length time-lapse moves using its unique rope system. Build your own cable cam rig or attach the Genie to your old skateboard, dream up any shot you can imagine and add motion control with one click.

Compared to other motion controllers the Genie is incredibly portable allowing you to never have to go without the option of motion control again. With no external batteries, complicated wires or third party controllers, the entire unit takes up just one slot in your typical camera bag.

The Genie can be programmed to shoot motion control time-lapse or smooth real-time video. Video mode enables perfectly smooth tracking or panning shots eliminating human error and allowing repeatability so you can operate as a one-man crew for interviews or cutaway shots.

Ramp the in and out points of your movement in both time-lapse and video mode to achieve smooth eased movement control.

Shoot amazing stars, people or clouds time-lapses straight out of the box! With the click of a few buttons you can start some simple time-lapses with literally no setup time using the Syrp preset menu. Alternatively create your own settings and save them down as custom presets to save you valuable on-location time.

Use the advance setup menu to create amazing HDR time-lapse. Set your camera to your desired bracketed exposures and let the Genie take care of the rest.

Shoot sunsets and sunrises using the bulb ramping feature which allows you to hold an exposed image throughout the entire time-lapse even when light is changing drastically.

In auto start mode you can set a countdown timer to begin a recording or alternatively set a time and date you wish to begin your shot.

    5* great for time lapse with my canom 5d mkIII gonna get the mini one too soon to do the pan and tracking at the same time. Even though price is quite high on the syrpe things I think its defiantly worth it cos there just ain't anuthing else like it. I also brought some ofer stuff from this site and it came fast and it was all genuine propper goods gonna carry on buying from here because they price matched on things I normally get by Amazon for me but this genie was cheaper anyway that's how I found them in the first instrance. BUY FROM CAMERAGRIP EVERYONE!!! GREAT GREAT GEAT

    Smooth pans and tracks at good price

    Posted by Peter on 2nd Mar 2016

    I bought this for both video and time-lapse work. I've used it for pans and long tracks (on the ladder dolly) and it works very well. It is easy to program and the battery lasts for days. It drops a star because the panning base is a loose fit and wobbles when the camera is set up (the tracking base is fine). However, it doesn't seem to wobble in actual operation and the footage is extremely smooth.
