Syrp Slingshot Overview

  • 1Description

The Syrp Slingshot 3-Axis 328' Motion-Controlled Cable Cam Time-Lapse Kit 1 from B&H allows you to capture smooth, motion-controlled, 3-axis time-lapse shots over 328' of distance. The kit features the Slingshot cable cam system with 328' ropes, the Genie II Linear motion control tracking motor, and the Genie II Pan/Tilt motor. A companion iOS/Android app allows you to set up and control all three axes.

The Genie II Linear is an upgraded version of the original Genie tracking motor. It has a more compact and efficient design.

  • 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.
