Syrp Slingshot overview

  • 1Description

This Syrp Slingshot 3-Axis Genie II Kit is a B&H kit that provides you with a motorized motion control cable rig for up to 328' of elevated travel. The kit includes the Syrp Slingshot camera and motor platform, Genie II Linear Motor, Genie II Motorized Pan/Tilt Head, 328' of Syrp Accessory Rope to drive the Slingshot, and two lengths of Syrp Slingshot Rope, 328' each, for the Slingshot to ride on. This setup is more compact than using the Pan Tilt Bracket with two motors.

This kit enables you to set up a motion controlled cable rig between two points. The Slingshot rides along the Syrp Rope, while the Linear Motor drives the rig. The included Pan/tilt Head provides you control in two axes. This allows you to program and control your camera move with great precision. The system is relatively small and lightweight enough to take with you on hard-to-reach locations. The integrated batteries provide hours of runtime to get the shot you want.

  • 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 timelapses. The Genie II can be installed on nearly any slider. 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.

  • Syrp Genie II Motorized Pan/Tilt Head

    Attach your camera to the Syrp Genie II Motorized Pan/Tilt Head to introduce dynamic pan and tilt movements into your timelapses. Utilizing the full 180° of tilt, the head can support up to 7.9 pounds, and up to 12.3 pounds if only the middle 90° are being used. The Genie II motion control components use Bluetooth to connect to your smartphone for convenient wireless control and programming. A USB-C cable adapter is included for plugging in your camera for app-controlled shutter release. A quick release plate is included as well for securing your camera with ease. Attach the Genie II Motorized Pan/Tilt Head to the Genie II Linear to create a 3-axis motion control head for your slider.

  • 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.

  • 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.
