The Syrp Slingshot 1-Axis 328' Motion-Controlled Cable Cam Time-Lapse Kit from B&H allows you to capture smooth, motion-controlled tracking time-lapse shots over 328' of distance. The kit features the Slingshot cable cam system with 328' ropes and the Genie II Linear motion control tracking motor. A companion iOS/Android app allows you to set up and control the tracking motion.

The Genie II Linear is an upgraded version of the original Genie tracking motor. It has a more compact and efficient design. Also, it supports up to two Genie Minis or a Genie II pan/tilt head for 3-axis motion.

Syrp Slingshot

The Syrp Slingshot is designed to take motion control capture to the next level. Whereas motion control is normally limited to the length of your slider, the Slingshot allows you to achieve motion control for distances up to 328 ft. Moreover, it can be used high above the ground, so you can capture vast nature and city landscapes. You'll just need the motion control device itself in addition—either the Syrp Genie, Genie Mini, or multiples of these, all sold separately.

Capture high production value shots in stadiums, parks, metropolitan areas, and pretty much anywhere else. Simply secure one mounting bar to a tree, light post, or something similar, and likewise fix the second bar a distance away. Install the included ropes between the two bars and then just place the Slingshot on top on its wheels. This could be done as low as near ground level or way up in the air. Everything, including the bars, sets up in just minutes, as all the components are designed to secure by a quick release ratchet mechanism. Even securing the bars to a tree or post requires no special effort.

The optional Genie attaches on top of the Slingshot, and your camera goes on the bottom via a ball head (not included). The Genie provides tracking movement and allows you to capture real-time footage as well as time-lapse video. It's the Genie that's capable of operating at a max distance up to 328 ft. The Slingshot comes with 82 ft ropes for the Slingshot and the Genie, but you can get optional Syrp ropes up to 328 ft for both.

You can also combine the Genie and Genie Mini together, or the Genie with two Genie Minis, to achieve up to full three-axis capture—tracking, panning, and tilting—at the same time. Furthermore, the Genies can be controlled using an iOS or Android app. When combining a Genie with two Genie Minis, a sync cable and pan/tilt bracket are also required. You may want to check out the B&H Slingshot kits that offer all these packaged together.

The Slingshot is designed to be portable. Its components quickly and easily come apart from one another and neatly pack away into a custom designed backpack with pockets for each piece.

Syrp Genie II Linear

Add the Syrp Genie II Linear to your slider along with the included Genie rope, and you can enjoy motorized sliding for precise tracking shots and dynamic time-lapse sequences. The versatile Genie II is also compatible with nearly any third-party slider.

Features include reduced friction on the rope drive, a quick release camera plate for easy setup, keyframing with the Genie 2 app; and joystick, smartphone, and tablet control. Quiet operation and a compact portable design enable you to use the Genie II Linear almost anywhere your travel.

Attach the main unit to your slider's platform, and once the included Genie rope is threaded properly, the Genie II linear can automatically slide along the length of the rope. A smartphone connected via Bluetooth can control the Genie II Linear wirelessly, and when used with the Genie II Motorized Pan/Tilt Head, you can access 3 axes of motion to accomplish more advanced shots.

Future app features will include Bulb Ramping for day-to-night time-lapse exposure, HDR Timelapse, Simple Setup, Live View, 360° Time-Lapse, Multi-Row Panorama, and more.

Oben BE-126 Ball Head with Arca-Type Quick Release

The BE-126 Ball Head from Oben is a lightweight aluminum ball head with a load capacity of 26.4 lb, a large locking knob to control the movement of the ball, and a separate knob for the 360° panning movement. The individual knobs enable higher-precision adjustments to the head than are possible with single-lever heads. Taking panoramic photos is simple thanks to the panoramic scale at the base of the head. A notch in the ball head allows orientation to quickly change between portrait and landscape.

The included Arca-type quick release plate attaches to any camera and is secured in place with the receiver's locking knob, simply and reliably. Two removable safety screws on the bottom of the plate help prevent your camera from accidentally being released prematurely. One bubble level on the clamp and another on the locking knob ensure that the camera will be level with the horizon.

Dual Action Ball Head

The BE-126 dual-action ball head boasts smooth and effortless operation and features separate locking knobs for independently adjusting the ball and panoramic base.

Arca-Type Quick Release

The BE-126 Ball Head includes an Arca-type quick release plate for easily mounting and dismounting a camera. Adding a compatible Oben quick release plate to all your cameras facilitates camera swapping so you can exchange cameras without interrupting your shoot.

Dual Bubble Levels

The ball head features two integrated bubble levels to help make sure the camera is perfectly aligned with the horizon.

Syrp Slingshot Rope (2 x 328')

The Syrp Slingshot Rope is a braided rope with a UHMWPE core and polyester sheath that does not stretch or crush and remains uniform under tension. It comes on a reel for transport and storage. This item consists of two lengths of rope per reel, with each length being 328' long. This allows your Slingshot (not included) to travel the full length of the reel.

Syrp Rope for the Genie - 328'

The black spooled Syrp Rope is designed especially for the Genie motion control device. It is made from a non-stretch Kevlar core and is braided to provide extra grip. When attached to any two points, the Genie will travel along the rope recording its time lapse or real time video.
