The Syrp Genie Motion Control Time Lapse Device with Ball Head Kit from B&H 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 the included ball head and your optional camera to the camera screw on top of the Genie. The weight of your equipment is rarely a concern since it supports up to 26.5 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. Kevlar-cored rope with lengths of 328', 164' or 32.8' are available for separate purchase. The Genie has been tested successfully on a homemade 60' dual cable stretched over a lake.

Inputs include both USB for firmware and a sensor input. The free firmware upgrade enables ramp-in, ramp-out functions and HDR (High Dynamic Range). Ramping is the process of modifying exposure settings on a camera in order to maintain a desired exposure value while the camera is in Bulb mode. This is especially valuable for transitional day into night, or night into day time lapses.

The sensor input accepts a motion, light, sound or other type of sensor to start your program in response to specific stimuli. The Genie ships with both panning and sliding bases, two slider mounts, 9.85' of rope and a multi-voltage charger for its built-in battery. A 3 hour charge gives you about 12 hours of runtime, depend on the weight of your camera. The Genie is compatible with approximately 130 cameras from nine major brands.
