Syrp Slingshot overview

  • 1Description

The Syrp Slingshot 3-Axis 82' Motion-Controlled Cable Cam Time-Lapse Kit from B&H allows you to capture smooth, motion-controlled, 3-axis time-lapse shots over 82' of distance. The kit features the Slingshot cable cam system with 82' ropes, the Genie II Linear motion control tracking motor, and two Genie Mini motors for pan and tilt motion. 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. Alternative to the included two Genie Minis, it supports an optional Genie II pan/tilt head.

  • 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, Simple Setup, Live View, 360° Time-Lapse, Multi-Row Panorama, and more.

It is designed to sit between your camera and tripod and has an internal motor that enables 360° panning motion with cameras weighing up to 8.8 pounds. Control and setup is done wirelessly using a Bluetooth connection and the Syrp Genie App for iOS and Android devices. To accommodation experienced and beginning time-lapse shooters, the app provides a useful set of presets so you can start shooting right away.

Two individual brackets are included: one to mount a Genie Mini in a vertical orientation onto a second Genie Mini (or Genie), and one to mount your camera. Used together, the two brackets allow you to use the base Genie/Genie Mini to control pan axis, with the vertically oriented Genie Mini controlling the tilt axis. For 3-axis movements, use with brackets in conjunction with a slider-mounted Genie.

  • Syrp Sync Cable for Genie and Genie Mini

    Designed to connect a Genie motion control system to a Genie Mini, the Syrp Sync Cable allows you to combine the two systems together to add 2-axis motorized motion to your time-lapse and real-time videos.
